Bring back the McDLT.  Sure both the "hot" and "cold" parts went under a heat lamp but it worked...

Two things:
1. I have no desire to eat old meat, no matter what kind of smoke and mirrors you want to use.
2. The article states there will be a bacon quarter pounder.  Any other argument for old meat is now invalid.

they were good. they filled you up. I had the bacon and cheese one about 3 times in the last year.

my quibble is that they were too heavy and too salty. it felt like it sat in your stomach for hours and made you feel bloated.

my new favorite is the grilled onion cheddar burger.

I dug the bbq burger. Was a nice alternative to Carl's when the one within walking distance closed.

/that spicy chicken though is something else. NOW DON'T FARK IT UP!

Good riddance.  I ate one once and had a stomach ache for hours.  Or maybe that was the burger king one.

Still a 1/3-pound of crappy meat should never be eaten.

calbert: too salty


That defines the majority of their burgers, except for the ones that have too much pepper.
 
2013-05-09 08:10:37 PM
Too bad. It was the closet thing they had to a real hamburger.

I would love to have a Carls/Hardees (it's the same farking thing) back within *driving* distance, as almost nothing is within walking distance of my house, unless you consider a 4 1/2 mile round trip a walk.  Not that I can't do it, but it's just dumb.  But ya, the nearest one is over 300 miles away, as opposed to the ten minutes away it was in the 80s when Hardees bought Burger Chef.

I tried one while traveling through Bumfark, USA since there wasn't anywhere else to stop.

The main differences from any other of their burgers was that the patty was thicker and it was all less haphazardly thrown together, but it was just as dry and bland.

As nasty as Jack In The Box's condiment burgers all tend to be, the mushroom and Swiss angus burger is actually pretty good.
 
2013-05-09 08:33:12 PM
I ate it once. It was unremarkable.
 
2013-05-09 08:37:20 PM
The only good thing about the McDLT was that you could put the meat patty on napkins and squeeze some of the grease out of it.
 
2013-05-09 08:37:50 PM
I tried one once. It wasn't worth the price of admission. Hardee's burgers are better for the price.
 
2013-05-09 08:46:09 PM
We actually hit McDonald's for lunch and that Angus and Bacon is the only thing on the menu with bacon that isn't the god-awful Chicken wrap.  So I tried to order it, and they informed me that the Angus is gone, they just haven't removed it from the menu.

I'd gladly accept the McRib as a permanent menu item as a means of apology.  If I only hit McD's four times a year, I want the good stuff.
 
2013-05-09 08:48:40 PM
No more Angus, no more Selects. Guess they're just giving up on real meat completely.

Love me some Angus bacon&cheese, though a 1/4# bacon&cheese will do just nicely.

I'm likely the only one in North America, but I miss the Arch Deluxe.
 
2013-05-09 08:52:16 PM
I tried one once. It didnt taste like Angus ... should. Just because a cow has a little bit of black on its coat does not a Black Angus make. Yes, there are different tastes based on different breeds, and also their diet .

Nefarious: Bring back the McDLT.  Sure both the "hot" and "cold" parts went under a heat lamp but it worked...


Wrong. I worked at a McDonalds in those days. There were no heat lamps and we actually had to cook the meat. Smack it up, flip it, rub it down.

/Now off my lawn. I do agree with you about bringing it back.

Thats ok. There is a 5 guys opening up a minute away from where I work. It wont matter if Mickey starts selling porterhouse burgers, I probablt wont go there after they open up.

Nope, I miss it too, it was in fact good.

It was great, but in true McDonald's fashion the "Deluxed" their entire menu, Filet of Fish, McChicken, pretty much everything except the happy meal burgers, Quarter Pounder and Big Mac.  People were not happy.
 
2013-05-09 09:51:20 PM
I'm kinda bummed. When I do go to McD, for whatever reason that may be, I got the bacon angus. I guess I'll just switch to the QP now, but meh. I liked the crinkle pickles and the red onion.
 
2013-05-09 09:56:16 PM
I try to not get to too much fast food nowadays, but the Mushroom & Swiss Angus was my go-to.  I really like mushrooms but few places have them on the menu.

I guess I'll be getting even less fast food now, which might be better after all.
 
2013-05-09 09:59:22 PM
Goodbye to the anus burger. I am not sure what kind of "meat" they use, but it sucks.
 
2013-05-09 10:00:39 PM
Call me when they stop packing about six tablespoons of salt into each patty and get some meat that tastes like meat.

The only edible things left at McDonald's are the Filet-O-Fish, fries (if you can manage to get ones that haven't been burned or cooked in yesterday's oil), and the soft-serve ice cream.

FTFA: "When you can get four or five burgers off the Dollar Menu, nobody's going to buy the Angus burger," he said.


Those of us who wanted something more than a bun with a thin sliver of leather in it ordered the Angus burger. It was the only consolation when I have to take the kids there (due to time constraints or unwisely letting the kids pick where we eat).

Hey, has anybody pointed out that "Angus" and "anus" are awfully similar in spelling and pronunciation yet?
