Wendy’s Kills The 9 Patty T-Rex Burger After The Internet Finds Out About It

t-rex burger

Remember the 9 patty behemoth known as the Wendy’s T-Rex burger? We learned of its existence only last week but, sadly, it is no more.

This rare beast was once served at a Wendy’s franchise in Brandon, Canada as a tongue in cheek tip of the hat to their customers. According to Barb Barker, who is part of the Brandon Wendy’s management, “Wendy’s corporate put out a tongue-in-cheek ad in Sports Illustrated eight or 10 years ago with a picture of the ‘T-Rex’ burger. Customers liked it and requested it and we obliged given that we’re in the customer service business.”

However, the burger got more attention than anyone could have hoped for when a Reddit user posted it there. The internet did what the internet does and, sadly, Barker had the Brandon, Canada franchise remove the item from the menu, stating, “Wendy’s is not condoning or endorsing that a person eat nine meat patties in one sitting.”

Oh and pretty much everyone on Reddit is blaming the OP for posting the picture and, in essence, killing the T-Rex.

But my favorite part of this? Barker did add a glimmer of hope to those who want to spot the T-Rex, commenting, “We do serve hamburgers and patties the way our customers would like them. An extra patty is an option on a burger, just like extra tomato, extra onions, extra cheese or no mayo.”
