When Wendy's introduced the beloved 4 for $4 deal in 2015, America couldn't get enough. An entree, order of fries, chicken nuggets and a drink for $4 just seemed too good to be true! While the 4 for $4 has been through many iterations over the years, it now continues to live on Wendy's menus as the four core items the 4 for $4 has long been built on: a cheeseburger, fries, nuggets, and a drink.
Feeling hungry? Us too. Let's explore what's currently offered in Wendy's 4 for $4 deal.
In the past, this fast-food chain meal combo allowed you to pick between eight entrees: a cheeseburger, a cheeseburger deluxe, a bacon cheeseburger, a double-stack cheeseburger, a crispy chicken sandwich, a crispy chicken BLT, a grilled chicken wrap, and a spicy chicken wrap. As recently as earlier this year, you could've chosen from three different options.
However, in April 2022, Wendy surprised customers with a major change: Now for the entree portion, you can only chose from the Jr. Cheeseburger. While it might not play host to bacon, this classic entree features fresh beef with cheese, pickles, onion, ketchup, and mustard on a toasted bun. This is perfect for anyone looking for a classic cheeseburger to keep you going.
JR. FRENCH FRIES
We all know that the french fries are one of the best parts of eating at fast food restaurants. No matter where you fall in the McDonald's fries vs. Burger King debate, you can agree that french fries can hit the spot like no other. Wendy's fries are hot and crispy (if they're not, they'll replace them!) and come with the potato skin still-on, sprinkled with sea salt.
Wendy's french fries are as tasty as the next, and are fortunately a part of the 4 for $4 meal deal. Although you once could chosen between small, medium, or large fries, now the size comes automatically as a Jr.
CHICKEN NUGGETS (CRISPY OR SPICY)
In addition to your burger and fries, the next step in your meal is a 4-piece order of chicken nuggets. Here, you still have a choice: you can order either crispy nuggets or spicy nuggets. (I go for the spicy nuggets every time, but to each their own.)
Moreover, you can also choose between a variety of dipping sauces to add some additional flavor to your meal, including honey mustard, ghost pepper ranch, BBQ, and sweet and sour sauce.
Last but not least, you get a small drink to go with your meal. You can go for a soft drink if you're in need of energy, or try a zero-sugar lemonade or an iced tea to be on the healthier side of things.
The next time you go through the Wendy's drive-thru, think long and hard about your options to make sure you choose correctly. Better yet, order your meal through the Wendy's app and get it delivered.
If you're not sure if the Wendy's 4 for $4 will be enough food, try the $5 Biggie Bag with the Bacon Double Stack! The $5 Biggie Bag may now be worth more than the 4 for $4, as it comes with a choice of Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, a Double Stack, or a Crispy Chicken BLT as your entree.
