You may think you know the ins and outs of your favorite fast-food restaurant’s offerings—but what about all the meals that aren’t even on the main menu? These fan-created meals are often referred to as “secret menu” orders. Starbucks has perhaps the most famous secret menu, with customers concocting new, creatively named drinks on a regular basis. But there are also tons of other restaurants that offer the possibility of some off-menu specialties, including Wendy’s. Among other “secret” meals, cheese lovers may be excited to learn about the Asiago beef burger. Find all the details on this fan-made sandwich below.
Wendy's Asiago beef burger
You may have heard of a few McDonald's secret menu items, but less people know about the delicious menu hacks at Wendy's. One such customization is a special burger customers have named the "Asiago beef burger." If you love burgers, cheese, ranch, and bacon, you'll definitely want to give this a try.
So, what exactly is the Asiago beef burger? You may be familiar with the Wendy's Asiago Ranch Club, which features spicy, classic, or grilled chicken topped with Applewood smoked bacon, Asiago cheese, ranch dressing, lettuce, and tomato, sandwiched between a toasted bun. The off-menu Asiago beef burger has all of that, too—but it swaps the chicken for a beef patty, making it the perfect option for anyone who wants the best of both worlds. Ranch on a burger?! Sign us up! We don't even care about the health consequences.
Here's the thing, though: while you can definitely try ordering the "Asiago beef burger" without any explanation, it's important to remember that not every Wendy's employee will know what that means. It's the secret menu, after all. If this is the case, all you have to do to get this burger is order the Asiago Ranch Club and ask to replace the chicken with a burger patty. It's as simple as that!
Add spicy chicken to the Asiago beef burger
Okay, so we love the idea of the Asiago ranch club with beef instead of chicken. But what if we want both—and what if we want it spicy? As it turns out, there's a way to customize things even more and turn the heat up. All you have to do is order the Asiago ranch club with an extra beef patty, instead of replacing the chicken with beef altogether. That way you get the beefy patty you love along with some crispy, spicy chicken for an added kick. Honestly, this modification blows our mind.
There are more Wendy's menu hacks where that comes from! Other fan-favorite hacks include the Barnyard, which packs in even more meat: a beef patty, a spicy chicken patty, bacon, and ham, with cheese to top it all off; and the Chili Cheeseburger, which adds a scoop of chili to your cheeseburger. (Although you may want to stay away from Wendy's chili after hearing how it's made.)
Okay, BRB, now we're craving Wendy's.
