The Top 10 Wendy’s Items to Order

By Lana Kisner | December 16, 2023

From juicy burgers stacked high with toppings to delicious salads and side items, Wendy’s menu definitely has something for everyone. Most items can be ordered individually or as a meal, and select options come in “Biggie Deals” that give you more bang for your buck. Whether you’re craving a chicken sandwich, a burger, or a delicious breakfast item to start your day, I’ve rounded up the ten best Wendy’s items you don’t want to miss.

10. Crispy Chicken BLT

I love Wendy’s crispy chicken patty in their sandwiches, and this one comes with the addition of applewood smoked bacon, which takes the flavor to the next level. There are also lettuce, tomato, American cheese, and mayo on top, which complement each other perfectly. This is a simple sandwich but hits the mark to be a light meal or snack option.

9. Taco Salad

The Taco Salad is one of the unique items on the Wendy’s menu. It comes with crunchy tortilla chips, which are perfect for scooping up the chili served on top. The salad part includes lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese, tomato, salsa, and sour cream. This is a fun menu item to eat, especially when you’re craving something other than a classic fast-food burger or chicken sandwich.

8. Crispy Chicken Nuggets

Fast-food chicken nuggets are a classic menu item, and Wendy’s version doesn’t disappoint. They’re breaded, crispy white-meat chicken pieces and come in a four or six-piece order. Pair them with your favorite dipping sauce at Wendy’s, and you’re in for a treat.

7. Bacon, Egg & Swiss Croissant

This is a melt-in-your-mouth type of sandwich on the Wendy’s breakfast menu. It combines two of my favorite breakfast staples (bacon and eggs) on a fluffy croissant bun. The addition of Swiss cheese sauce on top brings in more savory flavors and creaminess to the sandwich.

6. Chili & Cheese Baked Potato

This is one of the most popular Wendy’s side items, which features their famous chili. It includes a fluffy baked potato topped with chili, shredded cheddar cheese, and cheddar cheese sauce. It’s a hearty side dish that you can pair with your burger or chicken sandwich when you’re feeling extra hungry.

5. Breakfast Baconator

You’ve probably heard of the iconic Baconator before, and this one is basically the breakfast version of it. It comes with two types of breakfast meat (bacon and sausage), eggs, American cheese, and a Swiss cheese sauce on top that ties all the flavors nicely. Everything is served on a fluffy bun, which I love to see in a breakfast sandwich. This is one of the best fast-food breakfast sandwiches of all time, folks, so if you’re having breakfast at Wendy’s, this is a must-try menu item.

4. Apple Pecan Salad

This is my favorite salad on the Wendy’s menu, and for good reason. For starters, it doesn’t taste like a typical fast-food salad. It definitely has a more upscale vibe to it, thanks to the variety of ingredients used here. It comes with salad greens, blue cheese crumbles, grilled chicken, apple pieces, dried cranberries, and roasted pecans. I’d highly recommend pairing it with the pomegranate vinaigrette for a fresh and slightly sweet flavor.

3. Big Bacon Classic

Alright, we’re getting to the top three menu items from Wendy’s, so things are getting pretty serious now! This burger combines their delicious beef patty with applewood smoked bacon and tops it with all the classic cheeseburger fixings you could ask for. It comes with American cheese, but I’d recommend swapping it for asiago for an extra burst of flavor.  

2. Asiago Ranch Classic Chicken Club

I love a good club sandwich, and Wendy’s definitely nailed it with this menu item. It features a juicy chicken breast, which is topped with applewood smoked bacon and asiago cheese. These are layered with lettuce and tomato for a fresh bite, and the creamy ranch sauce on top brings in a bold flavor. If you love a classic club sandwich, you can’t go wrong with this one!

1. Baconator

Ah, the Baconator! This is not only the best Wendy’s burger but the best item on the entire menu. It’s a simple burger but definitely flavorful. It comes with two beef patties, which are topped with applewood smoked bacon. American cheese is also added to the mix, and everything is topped with ketchup and mayo and served on their premium bun. Most fast-food chains have at least one iconic menu item, and when it comes to Wendy’s, this is a true classic!
