Wendy’s adds nacho sandwiches, queso fries to menu to celebrate football season

To celebrate the launch and kickoff of football season, Wendy’s is serving up new flavor-packed menu items. 

Starting today, the fast food giant will add a Loaded Nacho Cheeseburger, Loaded Nacho Chicken Sandwich and Queso Fries to its menu. 

The new Loaded Nacho Cheeseburger features the experience of a nacho platter inside a burger, according to the company. The burger includes roasted poblano queso, spicy corn and tortilla strips, a spicy chipotle sauce and a jalapeño cheddar bun. 

For those who are 'team chicken', you can substitute in a Loaded Nacho Chicken Sandwich for game day.

"The new Loaded Nacho Cheeseburger pays homage to two American tailgating classics – cheeseburgers and nachos – and will have fans leaving the other guys behind and making the transfer to Wendy's this season."

Wendy’s also announced the launch of its Queso Fries, which include their signature fries topped with roasted poblano queso.
