19. Bacon & Cheese Quarter Pounder
What they say: A quarter pound of juicy, 100% beef with melty American cheese, thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon, tangy pickles, crisp slivered onions, ketchup and mustard, stacked on a toasted bakery-style bun.
What I say: This has nothing to do with the Quarter Pounder itself, or even really the bacon. It’s the “bakery-style bun.” It’s too dry and doesn’t blend well with the meat and toppings. McDonald's buns usually do a great job of staying out of the way, but this did not.
18. Deluxe Quarter Pounder
What they say: A quarter pound of juicy, 100% beef layered with melty American cheese, ripe tomato, leaf lettuce, tangy pickles, crunchy red onion, mayo and mustard, on a toasted bakery-style bun.
What I say: Still with that damn bun. Oh, and yeah, I’m also anti-tomato.
17. Daily Double
What they say: Two 100% beef patties, season (sic) to perfection, and melty American cheese topped off with lettuce, slivered onions, mayo and one juicy slice of tomato.
What I say: This is like a normal double burger at a diner, which was a peculiar experience having it at McDonald's. I resisted the urge to pick off the tomato because I am a man of discipline and honor.
