There are times when your mind can be soothed just by having a meal under the gold M. We are sure that you will associate McDonald’s with a specific time in your life. Perhaps, as a poor student, you regularly went to the nearest shop. Perhaps it was a frequent stopover when you went on trips with your friends, or the fondest childhood memory with parents.
Burgers, sandwiches, and co.
The popular fast-food chain has brought us joy, convenience, and fulfillment at one point or another. In the course of our lives, we have of course tried different menu items. Even so, we all know that nothing is better than their burgers and sandwiches! Everyone has their own preferences, of course, but we still ask ourselves: which burger/sandwich tastes best?
All right, let’s get started! We’ll start the list with the hamburger. For just a dollar, you can take it home and feed it away. Overall, the sandwich is pretty simple. In the normal bread rolls you will find mustard, ketchup, onion cubes, pickles and a rather plain beef patty.
Our rating of the hamburger
If you’re picky, McDonald’s hamburger probably won’t give you anything to complain about. It’s the least exciting and experimental item you’ll find on the menu. This is as simple as it gets: a dry patty, onions, and pickles. In addition, there is hardly any mustard and ketchup to add flavor. This is a surefire thing to do when you’re broke and hungry, but keep your expectations low. It is up to you to decide if you can overlook the shortcomings. In our opinion, it’s worth paying a little more for cheese!
It’s hard to deny that McDonald’s knows how to market its products. Year after year we hear people making fun of the McRib. What do you get when you pay $ 4.49 for this product? It comes with a Hoagie-style bun and a flattened pork patty, which is then topped with onions, pickles, and BBQ sauce.
Our rating of the McRib
To be honest, we can’t believe how popular this article is. For one, it’s on the more expensive side of the menu. It comes with a spongy piece of pork that has a meatball-like consistency. Its sauce is thin and doesn’t even cover the patty in its entirety. To be fair, the sweet and smoky taste actually tastes good. We also appreciate the onions and the Hoagie-style bun. However, we just can’t look past the patty’s weird texture. If McDonald’s is working on this, we would be a lot happier to spend money on this item.
This is another popular choice for people on a budget. After all, you can get the McChicken home for just $ 1.50. How can we describe this menu item? It’s basically a sandwich with a peppery chicken patty, mayo, and shredded lettuce between a toasted bun. If this sounds easy to you, it’s because it is.
Our rating of the McChicken
The truth is, we really like the McChicken. After all, it was the perfect meal when we didn’t have a lot of money when we were young. The mayo was a great addition to the base sandwich. In addition, the peppery taste spiced it up a bit. However, we no longer see it with the same affection. On the one hand, the breading is not crispy, but rather moist. Same goes for the salad! It didn’t help that the chicken patty was bone dry too. On the plus side, McDonald’s has since introduced a number of other chicken sandwich options. We hope they are better than this!
If we can be honest here, the McDonald’s cheeseburger isn’t all that different from the hamburger. It has the same beef patty, ketchup, pickles, onions, mustard, and a regular bun. Even so, we still think it’s worth the 29 cents difference. At least you get the cheese slice!
Our rating of the cheeseburger
Are you looking for something that is cheap but not the worst on the menu? The cheeseburger could be for you. In all honesty, it’s not that bad. At least the cheese slice does a lot better than the hamburger. If money is tight, you can’t really go wrong with this one. We will not judge you.
Can you imagine what the McDouble is just by its name? If not, let’s explain. This is a sandwich that consists of a regular bun, two beef patties, a single slice of cheese, diced onions, pickles, mustard, and ketchup. You can have it for dinner for the modest price of $ 1.50! But is it good?
Our rating of the McDouble
Essentially, the McDouble is just a cheeseburger with an added patty on top. That’s all the McDouble has to offer, but it can also be said that it is meatier, sassy and plump than the original version. It can make for a decent meal. If you can afford to spend a few cents more, get this one instead of the cheeseburger!
The double cheeseburger
But if the McDouble already exists, what on earth could the double cheeseburger be? Here we have the answer for Si: First of all there is also a regular bun, cucumber, diced onion, mustard, ketchup and two beef patties. However, it has not just one but two slices of cheese and costs $ 1.69.
Our rating of the Double Cheeseburger
We would like to repeat once again that the Double Cheeseburger is different from the McDouble. As you already know, the difference is related to the number of slices of cheese in the sandwiches. There are two in the Double Cheeseburger, but that’s the only difference between them. We don’t know about you, but we would always go for the option that has more cheese to choose from.
The spicy BBQ chicken sandwich
Here’s another chicken sandwich if you’re not a huge fan of beef. The Spicy BBQ Chicken Sandwich consists of cucumber, onion slivers, BBQ sauce and crispy chicken fillet with buttermilk sandwiched between slices of sesame bread. It’s one of the more expensive items on the McDonald’s menu at $ 4.89.
Our rating of the spicy BBQ chicken sandwich
We were very interested in the Spicy BBQ Chicken Sandwich when it first launched. Our feelings about it haven’t changed. This is still a firm sandwich that gets messy after a few bites, but it’s nice overall. The sauce is pleasant and warm, while the chicken stays crispy even when covered in a sweet and smoky glaze. In addition, we like how the raw onions and cucumbers taste against the sweetness of the sauce. You should stick to diced onions, however, to prevent them from sliding out too much. Even though it’s tasty, we still think it’s not as good as other menu items.
The “Hamburger Royal” with cheese and bacon
The Hamburger Royal with cheese and bacon offers 1/4 pound fresh beef patties with three thin strips of bacon and two slices of cheese. With ketchup, onion slivers, cucumber and mustard, of course! These ingredients are enclosed in two sesame bun slices. This is definitely not a budget option as it costs $ 6.29.
Our rating of the “Hamburger Royal” with cheese and bacon
Who would have thought that slices of bacon couldn’t do better? This goes for the royal with cheese and bacon. For one thing, the strips of bacon are dry and thin. They’re actually more like salty chunks of meat than anything else! In our opinion, they were unnecessary additions as the beef patty is flavorful and salty enough. This could have worked better if they had used a different type of bacon, maybe something fatter and flavored with brown sugar instead. However, we can’t really personalize the order as this is McDonald’s. While it’s still pretty tasty, it’s way too salty for the average person.
The grilled chicken sandwich
The name of this offer is chic, as is the price. What exactly do you get if you order the Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich and pay $ 5.39 for it? Well, you can expect a grilled chicken fillet, lettuce, herb vinaigrette, Roma tomato, and a decent bun. Are you ready to hear our verdict?
Our rating of the grilled chicken sandwich
The fact is, the Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich isn’t the most exciting thing you can find on the menu. The grilled chicken breast fillet was both flavorful and juicy. Not only that, the tomatoes were light and fresh too! In the end, the herb vinaigrette tied everything together well. This is healthier than most of the menu items as it only has 350 calories and seven grams of fat. It’s not particularly innovative, but this is a safe bet if you are keeping an eye on your weight.
The Hamburger Royal Cheese Deluxe
Let’s see how well this Royal does in the deluxe version. For $ 5.79, you can take home a quarter pounder with Cheese Deluxe! It comes with 1/4 pound fresh beef patties and sesame buns, of course. Apart from that there are two slices of cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, ketchup, onion slivers, mustard, mayonnaise and cucumber. Nothing new, but all of the expected quality …
