Menu Tracker: The battle of the Italian sandwiches

From Burger King to Wendy’s, red sauce was on everyone’s minds


Two Italian sandwiches debuted last year and, for the first Menu Tracker video of 2023, we decided to test them alongside senior food and beverage editor Bret Thorn.

The first was a version of a chicken parmesan sandwich from Burger King which was released in late November and will last for an unspecified amount of time. Thorn tests the quick-service chain’s attempt at the classic New York deli sandwich. What did he think?

The second version was a cross between a cheeseburger and an Italian sandwich from Wendy’s, which had a sensationalized commercial featuring the cheese pull – demonstrated by Thorn in the video accidentally. This will also be available for an unspecified amount of time. See what Thorn thinks of this unique twist on the classic sandwich in the video.

Also, Thorn tested the new tortilla soup from Chick-fil-A and a blackened chicken sandwich from Popeyes.

Check it all out in the video above.
