Too Bad It Just Looks Good

We wanted burger for dinner last night. Instead of Sango, we decided to dine at Wendy’s.

This is the newest addition to the menu- Baconator Mexican Melt.


It has two beef patties (a quarter of a pound each), six bacon strips, cheese slice, cheese melt and jalapeño cuts.


I got excited because I love jalapeño but when I took a bite it was a major disappointment. I’m not sure if Wendy’s uses extenders on their patties. The patties were soggy and didn’t taste like beef meat at all. The bacon strips were not perfectly crispy. They tasted raw. Even if I love jalapeño I wasn’t satisfied with my meal. It was filling to the stomach but not fulfilling.

The price? The burger itself is P216. Combo meal is P261. Large combo is additional P22 and the Biggie combo is additional P40. It’s not worth the price, I tell you.

Good thing we had fries to munch on. That was what kept my stomach from getting upset due to undercooked meat.

Have you tried Baconator Mexican Melt? Did you like it?

Hi Maria, thanks for visiting my blog! :) Sorry the burger didn't taste yummy :( It looks greasy good!!

Maria said...

Hi Dee, The Perpetrator and Julienne! Yeah it was really disappointing.. We (reluctantly) finished it because we don't want to waste P261 just for that.

Thank you so much for dropping by! :)

We were blinded by the huge photos on the restaurant's wall and door. Too bad.

Have a great weekend too, Mimi! :)

It looks yummy but if you said it was a major disappointment, I would believe you right away. Their burgers used to taste good like 10 years ago but not, blech. Have you tried Big Better Burgers or Charlie's? Those are good burgers. :P

Maria said...

Yes Pammy, I agree. Wendy's burgers used to taste good before. My Mama and I enjoy dining there years ago but not now anymore.

I'll try Big Better Burgers or Charlie's. Thanks for suggesting! :)

Those restaurant posters are just too good to be true. May discount card pa naman ako sa Wendy's, gagamitin ko nalang sa Frosty. haha

Maria said...

Yes Klomster, that's so true! Really deceiving ads. Yeah I think it's much better to use our money to buy Frosty. It still tastes good, thank God. :)

Lee said...

Good thing hindi ako bumili nito! Been wanting to try Baconator since last year pero laging nauudlot haha. Sayang, it does look really good.

Thank for following my blog. I've followed you back :D

Thanks Lee! :) I had the same sentiment before I finally got a taste of this. The delicious-looking burger is so deceiving. Waste of money.

cabalen!!!


so were the jalapenos spicy,
at least? : )


thanks to googling this sandwich,
i discovered your blog. nice. fun!

Maria said...

Hello Cabalen! Yiheee!

Yes, in all fairness the jalapnos were spicy. Good thing, right?

Thank you for dropping by! :)

it was good. I tried it in SM Sta. Mesa branch. I even asked to add more jalapeno slices, for no extra charge. I would say it was not as good as those grill as you order burger joints but it was craving-satisfying for me. and for that price, you really get what you pay for. so I didn't expect much
