At this point, I’m surprised bacon grease isn’t leaking from my pores. In the span of four days, I consumed a 100 percent bacon burger from Slater’s 50/50 (dubbed the ‘Merica burger) and a “Son of Baconator” from Wendy’s. Both reviews, I feel like it’s necessary to note, were done for A Hamburger Today, and were aided by my complete lack of dignity.
Neither of them were good, though the progeny of the Baconator was a better balanced burger than the original, and the “bacon island” dressing on the burger at Slater’s was pretty decent. The all bacon, all the time burger is available until the end of July. If you’re compelled, or morbidly curious, check out the review on AHT. Or, to see some truly atrocious photos of what a baconator looks like in real life (compared to the beauty shot at the top of the post), scroll through my Reality Check of the new item.
