I'm more of a fan of Wendy's chicken sandwiches. During COVID, burger shortages in the town where I lived saw some restaurants take liberties to incentivize people to get other things on their menu, and Wendy's had $5 Biggie Bags with their chicken sandwich, fries, a ten-piece nugget, and a drink.

I was unemployed for a good chunk of 2020 so that was a good way to stretch a dollar.
