About Dave's Hot 'N JuicyTM Cheeseburger

Wendy's - recent winner of the Top Food and Top Overall spots among Mega Chains in Zagat's 2011 Fast Food Survey - devoted more than two years to developing Dave's Hot 'N Juicy Cheeseburger, using input from 10,000 consumers across the country. The new made-to-order cheeseburger starts with fresh, North American beef, and the patty is thicker so it will be juicier. It features crisp, hand-leafed lettuce; red-ripe tomatoes; two slices of melted American cheese; sweet, mild red onion rings; crinkle-cut dill pickles; and precise amounts of ketchup and real mayonnaise.
