Here’s the definitive guide to Wendy’s secret menu

Jack McLaughlin

What’s not to love about Wendy’s? Not only do they serve legitimately good fast-food fare, but it’s never frozen and they’re local to the Columbus area.

They being said, after a while regular chicken sandwiches and plain chocolate Frostys can get a little boring. But we have just the thing for you. Welcome to your guide to the Wendy’s secret menu.


We unfortunately couldn’t feature all the Wendy’s secret menu items in one story, but we can assure you: these are the ones you need to know about, and they’re coming at you hot and fresh.

Editor’s note: these items aren’t officially recognized by Wendy’s. While many employees do know how to make them, and will do so willingly, this isn’t always a sure thing. In these cases, some assembly is required.

Barnyard Burger

Likely the most popular of Wendy’s secret menu items, this one is easy to source and dangerously deliciously. It combines a crispy chicken patty (from their Crispy Chicken Sandwich), a beef patty (from any hamburger), bacon, and your choice of additional toppings.

Frosty Float

Wendy’s did us all a solid by making the Frosty-ccino—a combination of chocolate Frosty and coffee—a regular menu item. Swap out the Chocolate Frosty for a vanilla one, and the coffee for a root beer, and you’re left with the best dessert that nobody else has ever heard of.

Asiago Beef Burger

If you want to get lost in the sauce, this one is for you. Wendy’s Asiago Ranch Chicken Club—featuring a fried chicken breast, Asiago cheese, ranch dressing, bacon, cheese, lettuce and tomato—already exists, meaning this one is simple: order it with a beef patty instead. You can thank us later.

Chili Cheeseburger

Why didn’t we all think of this one? For a hearty and indulgent twist on the classic Wendy’s burger, ask for a scoop of chili on top of your patty. And if that doesn’t work, just order a small portion and top it off yourself.

Grand Slam Burger

We’re not going to say we saved the best for last, but this one is definitely the biggest. Just like a grand slam in baseball is worth four runs, this one features four Wendy’s hamburger patties stacked between a bun. Do yourself a favor and don’t try to eat the whole thing at once.
