Bun was a bit denser and chewier; an improvement over the old bun IMHO
The patties were thinner than they used to be but also softer and broke apart easier.

Otherwise, overall taste was pretty close to original. It was my first big mac in a few months. Probably wont be having it again, even for $3.

Tried this yesterday, it's just an ok burger 5/10 most of the other burger chains completely overpower this burger. It is worth the 3$ max, not a penny more..
😎Thanks RFD😎

I'm not a fan of the Big Mac to begin with. I'll be going with a few colleagues tomorrow for lunch and I plan to convert my BM to a QP (or at least try to get as close as I can) to get the $3 deal... Here's a screenshot of the spreadsheet I made if you want to try too. Wish me luck! :(

I'm a RFD'er so the cheaper Big Mac is calling me...

But my non RFD'er wants the pizza...

LOL
If you have the app, they have had the $3 Big Mac on there a few times. Last week was $3 Quarter Pounder

Grabbed one today.

Honestly - a little better than it was before. Bun is better, more sauce but I wouldn't say "juicy".

Still much prefer BK or Wendy's!

You can do a 'meatless' Big Mac. It's exactly how it sounds. A real shame McDonald's hasn't come out with a vegetarian option. My wife had their veggie burger in the UK and it was great, apparently.

That's what I freggin thought! I could barely taste any meat.

I hope this wasn't some marketing scheme to dupe us into trying some soy based meatless sandwich. lol

I had to stop and throw it out mid-way.

Just had 2 for lunch today and it’s not too bad (def not worth msrp) but I agree, the buns are too hard/chewy.

Also, I already went to the toilet once afterwards and my stomach is still feeling somewhat upset - typing this from the stall and I feel sorry for the person next to me....

This is the price I pay for $3 Big Mac....all said and done, if McDonald’s is reading this I would not hesitate to do taste-testing for them as a side job.

why don't you guys install Burger King''s app to get year-round BOGO whopper
mmmm microwave
or go to awcoupon.ca to get 2x teen burgers (or 2x chubby chicken burgers) for $7.99?
The "salad dressing" aka miracle whip aka sweet mayo ruins it for me.
they all taste way better than McD..
Out of the above 3, I'd take McDonalds any day of the week.
Maybe not the big mac, but other sandwiches for sure.
