Wendy’s is looking to switch up your average fast food fare by adding pulled pork to their menu. While the chain is known for carrying more premium items than their drive-thru counterparts, such as their pretzel bun sandwiches, pulled pork does seem like an odd choice for a burger chain.
The new items include a pulled pork sandwich and pulled pork cheeseburger, both of which are topped with slaw and nestled on a toasted brioche bun. What could possibly pair better with these sandwiches than pulled pork cheese fries: natural cut fries topped with cheddar cheese sauce, tangy pulled pork, and diced red onion. Wendy’s new line up also includes your choice of three different barbecue sauces: smoky, sweet, or spicy.
Before you start imagining the tapeworm you could possibly catch at a fast food restaurant serving pork, you should know Wendy’s is pretty serious about their barbecue game. The chain smokes their pork between 8-12 hours and adds your choice of sauce to your sandwich once it’s prepared, meaning you don’t end up with a sandwich drowning in sauce that’s been sitting in a prep table all day.
Wendy’s new pulled pork menu is only available for a limited time.
