When it comes to fast-food breakfast menus, it can be a hit or miss. Breakfast is an afterthought for many fast-food chains, but Wendy’s takes it seriously, and their breakfast menu includes a delicious selection of sandwiches, biscuits, croissants, and even English muffins. Do you have a sweet tooth in the morning? You bet they’ve got you covered there with their French toast sticks! From the famous Breakfast Baconator to other breakfast sandwiches, I ate my way through Wendy’s entire breakfast menu and ranked them from worst to best.
