So I just had a baconator yesterday, and I was surprised by how good it was.
Juicy, flavourful patties, just the right amount of ketchup and mayo, and the bacon was obvious killer also. Even the buns were quite good.

I would rate this burger as better than the double cheeseburger at Five Guys and Burgers Priest, but not better than both store's specialty burgers.

I live in a van down by the river, grind up racoons and roast them on the campfire.

Racoonator anyone? Keto style, wrapped in dandelion leaves?

Look out Wendy's, you've got competition!
The dandelion leaves is what really sold me.

They offer free dipping sauces like sriracha and ranch.

It is not really advertised, but if you ask them they will give you some.

I think he might have completed the survey and gotten a free sandwich that way. However, it is usually limited to a Spicy Chicken or Dave's Single.

But yea, I'd like to know too.

yeah, survey and extreme ymmv on this. most places don't let you choose any burger/ sandwich.
Good, better, best. Never let it rest. 'Til your good is better and your better is best.

Just had one of these burgers and it's probably going to be the last one I eat for a long time. Man it was disgusting, the meat was over powering. I should have added lettuce to the burger, never crossed my mind because I never thought a burger could be so gross. It felt like fat sloppy grease sliding down my throat and into my blood stream.

I much prefer the Dave's single, with one 1/4lb beef, lettuce, tomato for $3 promotion they had last time. Or the chicken sandwich which was super delicious. This baconator is just a monstrosity, you're better off saving that $5.

Everything you just said that you didn't like is what makes it an amazing fast food burger.

+1 I always hoped to find a burger that the grease would go directly into my blood stream. That day has arrived.

You would think, but a burger like this just doesn't taste all that good. More meat doesn't equal better or even a good burger. There has to be a balance between the veggies and the meat. This had no lettuce, no tomato. Just 1/4kg of beef, plus bacon, cheese and if that wasn't enough, they even added mayo to increase the fats.

The Dave's single for $3 was a proper burger. You could eat two of those and enjoy them. The baconator is a gimmick.

Good value, but taste isn't all that great. If I were to buy it again, I'd definitely ask for lettuce, tomato and onions. Also 1/2 bacon
