They mustve had a delay in the pseudo-meat stamping-in-the-shape-of-a-weird-rib press machine.

I had my first Big Mac last year, so maybe I'll take the plunge on this in December.

The sesame seed bun is a nice touch, but I did not care for the special sauce.
Plus, it basically fell apart while I was eating it.
I'll stick with double cheeseburgers or the angus burger.

What's with the new "Daily Double" commercial I've been seeing that offers this fine product at an "Extra Value" price of $1.99?

It's looks like a double cheeseburger/McDouble ($1.00) with lettuce and tomato. So, I'm paying an additional .99 (about double) for lettuce and tomato?

(reading this back, it kinda looks like a Seinfeld rant.)

spot on assessment, good sir. the double cheeseburger is the way to go. the big mac, despite its 550 calories or whatever, somehow manages to not fill your belly. the dbl cheezburg hits the spot ever time.

I used to love McRib, but the last few times I had it, it was gross.

Angus burgers at McDonald's are underrated for McDonald's food. They are actually pretty decent.

My go-to at McDonald's (Breakfast not included), is a McDouble with only cheese.

McDonalds in general is gross. I'd much rather get wendys or taco bell for fast food. The mcrib, and breakfast however are anything but gross.

Pretty sure you get an extra slice of cheese on it too FWIW. Are big mac patties the same size as double cheeseburger?

For the record the McDouble is $1.00.. double cheeseburger is like $1.29

Yes, the Big Mac patties are the same as the double cheeseburger. I worked at McD's for a few months back when I was 16. So in 1996, this was the case, I assume it is still the case now.

In my experience the Angus patty is 50% meat and 50% liquid grease

It horrid, I'm on a **** myself timer of about 30 mins every time I attempted to eat one.

The only thing McD's has going for it is filet-o-fish, their grilled chicken, and McRib
