Wendy's Dave's Hot 'N Juicy 1/2 lb. Double Cheeseburger

wendysdouble.jpg“Well, it certainly looks juicy,” was my initial thought after pulling the dripping burger out of the bag. “And, it definitely looks hot,” I thought, as billows of steam evaporated from the burger. That's what you're promised to get with Wendy's reinvention of its classic hamburger. Still, the question remains: Does it taste any better than before? First of all, I think it's worth mentioning that I've never been too fond of Wendy's hamburgers, due to the fact that I found the meat to have little to no flavor. Unfortunately, the same holds true for the Dave's Hot 'N Juicy 1/2 lb. Cheeseburger that I had. I believe that all hamburger patties should be seasoned to at least some degree but once again I found myself eating a burger that was big on meat, but small on flavor. The pickles were pretty good compared to fast food standards, but the rest of the vegetables were unimpressive. Although they tasted good, the buns were a bit soggy and didn't do a very good job in holding the sandwich together. Overall, I'd have to say that this isn't much of an improvement over the previous incarnation of the Wendy's hamburger, though I'm sure it could rank higher on my list if someone at Wendy's decided to kick the flavor on their patties up a notch.

Adding bacon makes a world of difference to this hamburger.

I disagree with this review. I ate one of those tonight, the first time I have tried the double since they re-did it, and found the meat to be really flavorful and juicy, yet less greasy than the last version of the burger. The lettuce was soggy, so I pulled it off, but the tomatoes, pickles and other toppings were good, and the bum was toasted nicely. I think this is a huge improvement over the last double Wendy's burger.
