Review: Wendy's Triple Bacon Jalapeno Cheeseburger
Doug F and his Burger Wars series was right on all counts with this fast food gem!
I went with my wife yesterday to help her with a rescue dog transport in the morning, and as we were returning home around lunch time, I started getting a craving for a serious burger. As we got closer to home, that craving grew as we stopped to put gas in my wife's car, near a Wendy's. My mind went to Doug F's Burger Wars series, and his recent article on the Wendy's Triple Bacon Jalapeno Cheeseburger. Well, hell! I knew what I was having for lunch!
After a quick stop by the Wendy's drive-thru, I was home with my Triple Bacon Jalapeno Cheeseburger, ready to tear into it. By the way, I did get a side of fries, but most of those disappeared before we got to the house; I guess some sort of love tax paid to my wife. :D But the fries were very good! Anyways, I was a little excited to get home and unwrap the cheeseburger - I was very hungry!
The fries were actually pretty good.
Appearance wise, it wasn't all that impressive looking. It was a bit squashed looking and nowhere as big is it looked in the pictures. But, it didn't look awful by any means! But flavor is where the rubber "meats" the road. And this cheeseburger certainly performs!
What the Wendy's Triple Bacon Jalapeno Cheeseburger is supposed to look like...
...and what the one I got looked like. HAHAHAHA!
Three burger patties is A LOT! But the burger patties were juicy and beefy. Not at all like the last burger I had from Checkers. The bacon added a welcome, much loved and craved after flavor. But, the bacon wasn't crispy! Luckily, the fried onion straws on the burger were crispy, and added a nice oniony flavor without being too overpowering. Oh! Then there were the jalapenos; they were awesome! Pickled jalapenos belong on almost everything. The star of the show was the zesty sauce on this cheeseburger. It bridged all of the flavors and made it seem like I was eating a nacho flavored cheeseburger! And back to those three patties...
...they provided the perfect amount of meat to go with the sauce and jalapenos to balance out the flavors and heat!
There were some great flavors here!
The Wendy's Triple Bacon Jalapeno Cheeseburger is a true gem in the vast number of choices for a fast food burger. It packed a huge punch of flavor, was juicy, and was very filling. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. And Doug F was pretty much right on all points in his Burger Wars review!
It really doesn't look anywhere near as good as it actually was!
