Special sauce? Yes, please. Now onto the next category!
Oh, you’d prefer we elaborate on the rationale for why the Big Mac’s toppings top those found on a Dave’s Single? Fair enough. Well, to start, there’s nothing wrong whatsoever with the always-fresh ingredients complementing the never-frozen beef patty used by Wendy’s. We might even say there’s something comforting about the fairly standard assortment of Dave’s Single’s toppings (which includes lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, ketchup, and mayonnaise).
Yet we also can’t help but conclude that the non-beef ingredients on the Dave’s Single are relatively boring when compared to the unique collection of toppings used on a Big Mac. Even though McDonald’s stopped using the Big Mac jingle in recent years, we all know what comes with the Big Mac burger patties thanks to the classic advertising earworm.
More than likely, if you order a top-notch burger from anywhere, the toppings will mirror what’s on a Dave’s Single. That’s not a bad thing by any means, but it is enough to keep Dave’s Single from taking this category. Well, that … and the special sauce, of course.
Winner: Big Mac
