The giga Big Mac thread got me salivating about a truly "big" Big Mac. Although met with confusion at the drive thru, and many judgy looks, they honored my request to put quarter pounder patties on a Big Mac.

It was $8.50 for just the burger, which is almost double the cost of the regular sandwich. I was expecting the patties to overpower the burger as a whole, but was pleasantly surprised when they didn't. McD's recently retooled their quarter pound patties with more sear and seasoning, and it works well in this arrangement.

Combined with the sandwich assemblers adding more ingredients to match the extra proportions, it really tastes like a super-sized Big Mac. Meaning, completely excessive and something I'd probably only order once a year.

Two 1.4 lb. all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese...

I don't eat McDonald's much anymore but that looks like it would be worth trying.

Yeah, the meat looks a little gnarly, but was surprisingly tender and juicy.

8.50 for a garbage McDonalds burger? Seriously?

Go to Red Robin and get yourself a real burger for that price. Or get a Portillos burger for half the price and 10x the quality.

Seems like maybe they didn't know how to charge him so they charged him for 2 quarter pounders and a big mac. Doesn't really make sense.

Even that doesn't cost 8.50, and those burgers are GOOOOOOD!

McDonalds is the worst of the worst of the fast food industry. Pure horseshit.

Definitely worth considering to try it.

If there's something else you want to try, try the McGangBang. It's a McDouble and a McChicken. Take the McDouble and open it up in half (bun patty, patty bun). Take the McChicken and place it between the two patties in the McDouble. Enjoy. And it costs $2 plus tax. Add a drink for a buck and you're set. Unless you want fries. But you can't really beat it for the price.
