For nine years Wendy's has offered the Baconator, featuring two quarter-pound patties of 100 percent pure fresh beef, six strips of thick-cut Applewood-smoked bacon, three slices of cheese, and a bakery-style bun.
"Only Wendy's can bring beef and bacon to give you a hamburger worthy of the name Baconator," says Kurt Kane, Wendy's chief concept and marketing officer. "It starts with fresh, juicy beef raised close so that it never needs to see a freezer. We top it off with real bacon cooked the right way, not in a microwave like some others use. It's what makes the Baconator so delicious and juicy and why it's the ultimate masterpiece for meat lovers."
Now as a companion to the Baconator, Wendy's is bringing back the Baconator Fries, a blend of warm Cheddar cheese sauce, freshly-cooked Applewood-smoked bacon, and shredded Cheddar cheese drizzled over Wendy's natural-cut fries.
The Baconator has a suggested retail price of $6.36, and the limited-time Baconator Fries have a suggested price of $1.99.
