  1. I was originally going to get the asiago ranch chicken sandwich and saw this instead… Its pretty good with a decent amount of heat to it (hotter than those weak ghost pepper fries), and freshly made. Great burger.

      1. Good amount of cheese and the right amount of heat. I like that this style of salsa verde is more of the spicy type as opposed to the sweet type more commonly found at other restaurants. The bacon from wendys is always a plus. They always do it right. Also, I’m glad they went with the shredded cheese melted onto it. The pic had me worried as I thought it may have been more of a nacho cheese sauce which would have been too runny and messy. The only thing I wish it had was more produce. It only had the onions and green chilies from the verde. I thought it could use lettuce and tomatoes to add more dimension to the overall taste and to make the burger look better stacked. I give this one a B+
