And yet if you look the Macdonalds drive through is mile long as compared to any other burger joint.
BTW I don’t like it as well.

I think mostly people are ordering drinks or happy meals, that's what I usually hear most of the time in line. (friend gets coffee so I go with him in the drive-thru)

I don’t get how this deal is 50% off. Burger is $7.89 at the store. Skip selling for 5.20. What am I missing?

Pricing is regional (and even between locations in the same region) so it's going to be more or less of a deal depending on where you live. Skip the Dishes pricing is always going to be $1 or whatever more, but then it's 50% off, so it's still a deal IMO. Regular price near me is $9.50.

Can someone else confirm though that the BK burgers are microwaved, or it's just a one off.
BK Burgers are flame broiled. They put it in a machine that looks like the Tim Horton's bagel toasters.

Top compartment burger goes in and drops down to the bottom compartment cooked. I've seen videos of the flames.

As a parent, I can safely say McD's has the market cornered for appealing to kids. Their Happy Meals are a great deal (burger/nuggets/wrap + fries/apple slices + yogurt + drink + toy). Their toys are always leaps and bound ahead of the other fast food offerings (like Wendy's). They are also one of the most reliable places to order from when it comes to getting your order correct (with kids this is important). It's an easy choice for parents.

McD's has an amazing business model and team that puts out products people want, and is able to put together a convincing offering that makes it an easy choice for many. Whether it's pulling families in with happy meals or others in with their promotions (dollar drink days, dollar ice cream cones, game day specials like $3 big mac), they have a broad appeal. I assume their hope is that you'll still come in, even when their food is not on promotion or your kids aren't as in love.

Most fast food has really dropped the ball. They failed to capitalize on technology, they failed to listen to people, and now they are stuck because of so many "quick service" offerings that come up with cost just a couple bucks more. McDs is almost $10 for a combo, yet I can go to a higher end "quick service" burger place and get burger + fries for $2-3 more. With COVID, many of us have gotten used to take out so it's not a big deal to order ahead on an app and pickup the order. McDs competes in other ways, while the other fast food joints seem to be losing their way. Good on McDs for stepping it up and I hope others like Wendy's do the same (who's burgers I prefer).

I finally got around to trying it after my workout last night.
Ordered 2 burgers. Had to do separate orders as the app only allows one deal per order.

I was able to ask for extra all veggies including tomatoes, which is not on the original XL burger, all for free. Veggies were nice and fresh and helped to cut through all that meat and cheese.

Had the first burger, waited an hour, and had the second.

Hit the spot. Will get it at least once more before it expires. I may ask them to just put 2 slices of the processed cheese instead of 4 which I found a bit overwhelming for my taste. Meat was surprisingly very moist.
Good, better, best. Never let it rest. 'Til your good is better and your better is best.

Oh, so the 30 minutes between orders in the terms and conditions doesn’t apply?

No issue for me. I placed the 2 orders a couple of mins apart on the same account.

Agreed. I stopped using all these delivery services because of all the fees, if you are able to might as well go pick it up yourself.

Did you know that McDonald's is an even more successful real estate company than they are at selling food? I think it was 2 yrs ago, I read an article that said McDonald's makes more of their profits from real estate. They own the property & lease it to the franchisee, this is actually even more profitable for McDonald's. Considering how much food they sell, this is quite astonishing
