  1. Hiya, Marvo! My friend and I halved the Smoky Mushroom Bacon baked potato recently. It also came with butter spread and sour cream (overkill). The high point was the meaty, crispy bacon; they really deserve to be commended for their excellent bacon. Unfortunately the mushrooms were neither smoky nor mushroom-y tasting. The cheese sauce was okay… I would not eat this baked potato version again. I think the burger version would be so much more satisfying to eat with the additional toppings of aioli and fried onions.

  2. We had the burger and thought it was really good. I’ve also had the potato twice now and really enjoyed it. Wasn’t given the butter or sour cream with it like the other commenter. Terrified the amount of calories and fat I invested

  3. Picked one up today. Loved everything about it except the mushrooms. They weren’t “smoky” as much as charred black. Bleh. Everything else about it was good though.

  4. Very very disappointed. Me and my husband both had the mushroom bacon cheeseburger. It was nothing like the picture!!! The onion rings were so small and miserable that you couldn’t see them. I think I counted 2 small ones total…
    The aioli wasn’t there. The mushrooms were burn and soggy and the meat burned. I am so disappointed I am not going back to Wendy’s for a while after this!
