Wendy’s is bringing back its popular Pretzel Bacon Pub Cheeseburger to its Made to Crave menu. It will be available nationwide alongside the Bourbon Bacon Cheeseburger, Big Bacon Classic Cheeseburger, Hot Honey Chicken Sandwich, and Asiago Ranch Classic Chicken Club.

The Pretzel Bacon Pub Cheeseburger is made with a quarter pound of fresh beef, Muenster cheese, three strips of Applewood smoked bacon, smokey honey mustard, warm beer cheese sauce, crispy fried onions, and pickles. All of that is piled into a soft pretzel bun, which Wendy’s touts as the only one in the fast food arena.

“We always make it a priority to listen to our fans about what they want to see on our menus, or in this case, what they want to see come back on menus,” said Carl Loredo, US Chief Marketing Officer for The Wendy’s Company, in a press release. “The Pretzel Bacon Pub has a fanbase like no other, and since it left menus in 2021 fans have been eagerly awaiting its return. The ingredients team up to create a burger that fans can’t find anywhere else.”

You can also order the sandwich with chicken instead of beef, like the Pretzel Bacon Pub Chicken Sandwich. You can order the chicken sandwich with a classic, grilled, or spicy chicken filet.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
