Wendy's Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger [Review]

With the gourmet burger craze sweeping the country, it was only a matter of time before one of the big chains offered their take on a "pub" burger.  While McDonald's scrapped their premium priced Angus burgers recently, Wendy's is going in the opposite direction with an LTO burger that comes in right around $5.  The Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger features an artisan baked pretzel bun, a 1/4 pound burger, cheddar cheese served in not only slice form, but also sauce form, bacon, red onion, tomato, spring mix, and the sweet & smoky honey mustard sauce that was used on the Grilled Chicken Flatbreads.

Arby's King's Hawaiian Roast Beef and Swiss [Review]

Arby's sandwiches are based on simplicity. Typically one or two ingredients are part of their roast beef sandwiches, with maybe an onion flavored bun to go along.  So whenever a chief element, such as the bun is altered drastically, it's definitely worth noting.  Enter the new King's Hawaiian Roast Beef and Swiss Sandwich.  On a sweet King's Hawaiian bun, a loaded amount of roast beef is accompanied by sweet pickles, swiss cheese, and Djion sauce.  Fairly radical for Arby's, but how does it stack up?
