What Time Does Wendy’s Close?
Wendy’s is often closed by 1am, but some stores may close a little earlier.
What Time Does Wendy’s Open?
Most Wendy’s locations open as early as 6am. This is when most locations start serving breakfast. However, not all locations serve breakfast and the ones that do not often open later, at around 10am or 11am.
What Time do Wendy’s Serve Lunch?
Lunch often begins at 11am at Wendy’s. This is when they stop serving breakfast and make the switch over to lunch. There may be some differences with certain locations and on certain holidays though.
Does Wendy’s Have Breakfast?
Yes! Or rather, most of them do. There are many locations that do not serve breakfast, but we’d recommend finding one that does and then seeing what’s on the menu. At breakfast time the Wendy’s menu consists of Egg Sandwiches, Breakfast Burritos, Breakfast Panini, Baked Potatoes, Oatmeal, and more. It’s basically all of the standard breakfast stuff and is not too different from the McDonald’s Breakfast Menu.
Considering how popular breakfast is at the Golden Arches, we’re surprised that more people have jumped on the Wendy’s breakfast menu.

Let’s be honest, salads and burger chains don’t mix. The salads at McDonald’s only ever seem to get any attention when people are writing articles on how they contain more fat than Big Macs. They don’t taste as fresh as they should, they are a little bland and uninspired, and this is in line with many other chains. But Wendy’s salads are different.
There is a wider choice of them and they combine all kinds of fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts and more. Here are a few of our favorite salads from the Wendy’s menu:
Fresh Mozzarella: On a base of fresh leaves are added fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and croutons, before being finished with a sweet, sticky balsamic vinegar.
Strawberry Mango Chicken Salad: Mango works surprisingly well in a salad, something we didn’t really know until we tried this. There are also chunks of fresh strawberries in here, as well as roasted sunflower seeds, chicken breasts and salad leaves.
Taco Salad: A combination of a salad and a nacho feast. This brings together fresh and crisp salad leaves with crunchy taco shells, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes and chili.
Wendy’s Chicken Nuggets
Wendy’s Chicken Nuggets are a cheap and tasty option, perfect for kids and for picky eaters. You get four pieces of nuggets for every order and they are very similar to the chicken nuggets you can find at similar restaurants. Nothing hugely different, nothing special, but thats just what many kids want.
If you’re prefer to get some greenery into them, then buy them a Kid’s Chicken Wrap instead. The chicken is still there and its still tender, but there is also some lettuce and other ingredients.
|Crispy Chicken Nuggets|
|4-Piece Chicken Nuggets||$0.99|
|4-Piece Spicy Chicken Nuggets||$0.99|
|6-Piece Chicken Nuggets||$1.79|

|Caramel Frosty Shake, Large||$3.29|
|Chocolate Frosty Waffle Cone||$1.49|
|Vanilla Frosty Waffle Cone||$1.49|
The Wendy’s Frosty is a favorite dessert option for any fast food lovers. There are two main flavors: Vanilla and Chocolate, both of which are creamy, soft and airy, not unlike the McDonald’s McFlurry or the Dairy Queen Blizzard. In fact, many fast food chains have a version of this soft serve ice cream treat.
Everyone has their favorite and for many it’s the Wendy’s Frosty.
Wendy’s Frosty Ingredients
Ever wonder what was in a Wendy’s Frosty? What makes it so airy, so light and so creamy? Well, the soft scoop texture is a lot to do with how it’s mixed. It lets plenty of air in and creates a whipped, ice cream that is super soft.
As for the ingredients, it doesn’t make for pleasant reading. There is a lot of sugar and fat, but there are also some artificial flavorings and other chemical ingredients in there. So, look away if you don’t want to be put off eating these treats again (the following are the ingredients for the Chocolate Frosty):
Milk, sugar, corn syrup, cream, whey, nonfat milk, cocoa (processed with alkali), guar gum, mono and diglycerides, cellulose gum, carrageenan, calcium sulfate, disodium phosphate, artificial flavor, vitamin a palmitate.

Wendy’s Value Menu
All budget burger chains have a value menu. In fact, value menus can also be found in other fast food locations, including Del Taco. The Wendy’s Value Menu offers a range of foods for just $0.99. You can order everything from Natural-Cut Fries to a Junior Cheeseburger and more. It’s a low-cost way to eat well. Perfect not just for those on a budget, but also for those with small appetites, as well as for kids.
Don’t dismiss the Wendy’s Value Burger as being cheap and nasty. The age of wondering how fast food could be made so cheap is long gone. We get it now. It’s possible to do without serving-up genetically modified cardboard. And in the case of the Wendy’s Value Menu, it’s all good. Trust us.

Wendy’s New Burgers
One of the things that has kept the Wendy’s chain fresh and relevant over the years is the dedication to releasing new menu items. These include specials that are only available for a limited time, as well as burgers that come and stay for the ride. Generally, everything that is new is given a “Limited Edition” label, but you shouldn’t pay too much attention to that. It’s there purely so they don’t have to field any questions if they suddenly decide to pull it.
The truth is, all new items are tested to see how well they perform. If they do well, they’ll remain and the limited edition label will be faded out until everyone forgets it was supposed to be temporary. If it flops, then they’ll quickly pull it and remind everyone it was only supposed to be temporary.
Here are a few of the most popular Wendy’s new burgers that have stuck over the years. You can find more info on our Wendy’s Menu Prices tables.
- Gouda Cheese Bacon Burger: The name itself is enough to get your juices flowing. Bacon and burgers are a great mix, and this one makes it even better with the addition of sweet red onions, creamy gouda cheese and fresh veg. All of this is served in a brioche bun.
- Bacon Mozzarella Bun: Super-stringy cheese, super salty bacon, and a thick and juicy patty. This is the ultimate burger and one that proved to be a hit from the outset.
Wendy’s Fish Sandwich
The fillet-o-fish is a big hit at McDonalds, even though that baffles many diners. But if you want something a little bigger, a little better and nowhere near as polarizing then try the Wendy’s Fish Sandwich.
This comes with a premium, crispy cod fillet, lettuce, crunchy dill pickles and super-creamy tartar sauce.
Most Popular Items on Wendy’s Menu
Wendy’s has always provided consistency and quality with their fresh ingredients and delicious, juicy burgers. That being said, there are a few standouts that have been longtime favorites of customers. Some of the meals and treats topping the charts include some cheap favorites like Fries, the Crispy Chicken Sandwich, or even the classic Frosty. Recently the Baconator took hold as one of Wendy’s biggest signature burgers and its smaller counterpart, Son of Baconator is generating good sales as well.
Wendy’s Baconator® and Son of Baconator®
The Baconator sandwich is truly a work of art. Enjoy two freshly grilled all-meat patties smothered with two slices of yellow cheese, and of course stacks of bacon. Add some mayonnaise, ketchup, and whatever else you like on your baconator burger and eat away, my friends.
Feeling wimpy? Go with the new Son of Baconator® and get a smaller portion of the bacon goodness.
Wendy’s Gluten Free
There is an official gluten-free Wendy’s menu. So, don’t despair if you can’t eat gluten, there are options for you. This info can’t be found on our Wendy’s Nutrition Info page, and you won’t find it in many stores either.
So, to make sure you know what you’re looking for, we have pasted some info below. These are just a small selection of Wendy’s gluten-free foods:
- Most Salads: Hold the croutons
- Applewood Smoked Bacon Patty
- Ultimate Chicken Grill Fillet
- Baked Potato
- Seasoned Tortilla Strips: Made with Corn
- French Fries
- Frosty Shake
- Apple Slices
It’s also worth noting that many of the cooked foods may be contaminated with gluten. This is something that any fast food chain warns about and something you can’t always avoid. There are locations that have fryers dedicated purely to gluten-free, which allows them to serve gluten-free French fries and more, but this is something you will need to ask about in advance if you have a heightened sensitivity to gluten.
Popular Wendy’s Menu Items
The Wendy’s menu is known for square-shaped hamburgers that have different piles of ingredients. They have their premium Baconator hamburgers loaded with bacon. They have a single Baconator for those who have light appetite. It’s all of what a Baconator is made up: a single juicy choice-cut beef patty topped with premium melted cheese and topped with crispy bacon; all in a buttery soft bun. Wendy’s also offer the Baconator Mushroom Melt and the Baconator with two-quarter pound patties. Just imagine how extraordinarily yummy and cheesy these Baconators are.
The Wendy’s menu also has signature sandwiches. Let’s start with chicken fillet sandwiches. Their spicy chicken fillet is made up of a single marinated chicken breast fillet breaded with spicy seasoning. This hot chicken sandwich has mayo, tomato and lettuce on a toasted bun. Your tongue will absolutely feel reddishly amazing. It’s all worth the try. And who would not want to buy Wendy’s Home style chicken fillet made up of pressure-fried chicken breast fillet topped with lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise on a toasted Kaiser bun? It’s just super tasty. And by the way, you are all free to add bacon and cheese.
Wendy’s signature sandwiches also include the single and double with cheese made up of quarter-pound beef patties topped with your choice of condiments and American cheese all in a premium Kaiser Bun. All the fun you need for a sandwich, it’s all in their signature sandwiches.
Who would want to forget about Wendy’s dairy frosty? They come in different kinds. They have the Mango Marble Burst, Salted Caramel Crunch, Twisted frosty choices, Frosty Shakes and Combos. I would die not having them.
Most stores offer some kind of delivery for the complete Wendy’s menu. This is true of the US locations as well as many international locations. You can order over the phone or online, but there are a few requirements. You need to live within a few miles of the nearest Wendy’s and you need to place a minimum order. Delivery times can also be different to the standard opening and closing times.
