Value menu

Value menu
Value menu hamburgers.
A selection of value-menu hamburgers from McDonald's, Burger King, Sonic Drive-In and Wendy's.

A value menu is a group of items on a fast food restaurant menu that are designed to be the least expensive items available. In the US, the items are usually priced between $0.99 and $1.49.

The portion size, and/or number of items included with the food, are usually but not always related to the price.


United States


Arby's announced the launch of their value menu on April 9, 2010.[1] Items on the value menu vary based on location, but typically include small or value size roast beef sandwiches, curly fries, milkshakes, chicken sandwiches, ham and cheddar sandwiches, and turnovers.[2]

Burger King

Burger King added a value menu in 1998 with items priced at 99¢ (USD).[3] In 2002[4] and 2006, BK revamped its value menu, adding and removing products at 99¢, and later increasing some prices to $1.39.[5] Many of these items have since been discontinued, modified or relegated to a regional menu option.[6]


After numerous attempts beginning in 1991,[7] experimenting with a variety of menus and pricing strategies,[8] McDonald's launched its first national value menu, the Dollar Menu, in late 2002.[9]

Taco Bell

In 1988, Taco Bell lowered the prices of all new items and launched the first three-tiered pricing strategy and free drink refills.[10]


Wendy's is generally credited with being the first fast food chain to offer a value menu in October 1989, with every item priced at $0.99.[11][12][13]
