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.

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....
<sniffle> Thanks for sharing, man! <sniffle>

So I tried two for lunch.

I haven't had McD's in a while so to me, I didn't notice a huge difference in taste.

The deal with the onions? Didn't notice there were any so not sure that's a good thing or bad.

The bun? Meh. Maybe a little different. Not as soft?

The sauce? EEEEEYYYYUK! What have they done? Too much? Watered it down? Maybe this denser bun doesn't sop up some of the "special sauce" but it's way drippier. Or as the more well-heeled RFD'ers say: sloppier.

Last January(ish) Wendys had the Dave Singles on promo for $3. I think those beat the $3 Big Mac, two-slopppy hands down!

I hope this was worth it for McD's. I'm sure they found a way to save 1/10th of a cent on each B.M. (if not more) so when multiplied by bazzillions, it works out to a nice chunk of change to their sloppy bottom line.

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! :(
Did you really have to do a spreadsheet for that lol, remove lettuce and BM sauce, add ketchup and mustard, remove middle bun

I like my Quarter pound with leaf lettuce, tomato and no ketchup however.

That isn't the First McDonalds, you should watch the movie The Founder, it is pretty interesting about McDonald's history and how dark it is.

Is there a limit per person at all locations? I tried to purchase 4 today (for myself & friends) and I was told max limit is 3.

Totally forgot the reason this deal's in place. Had one for lunch and didn't notice anything different except there was a lot more sause than I'm used to, but this wasn't necessarily a bad thing. Will do more research throughout the week. Good luck, toilet.

Yeah the patties do seem thinner not going to lie, overall I thought it was more or less the same.

First McDonalds in Canada is the one in Richmond, B.C., No.3 Rd. Still there with original arches. Of course the building itself has been rebuilt and remodeled many times.
Have a nice day!

Dragged a coworker along for a late (1:30ish) lunch ... neither of us had eaten a big mac for ages.

What a shit show!!

The pickup order board was so full my order number didn't even appear for >5mins. We waited 15 mins and even then the burgers and fries weren't hot??!! How is that even possible!! And yes, it seemed slimy with too much watery special sauce on it.

Won't be doing that again!
