So... What's so special about this burger? Is it just another hype? Like a burger version of Magnum ice cream bar? I had it with McDo's vanilla iced coffee. The coffee's not bad. I like the balance of sweetness and bitterness to it -- bittersweet, just the way I like it. :)
For now, the burger on top of my list is still Dong Juan's. It's been my basis for burger quality standards.
The Big n Tasty boasts of a quarter pound of pure beef patty, smokey sauce and creamy cheese. I've never tried the quarter pounder of McDo (as we Cebuanos fondly refer to McDonald's; I usually get the cheeseburger) but I was with Luis, who's an avid burger fan and has obviously tried the said burger, and he said it's slightly bigger than the quarter pounder.
The patty was too dry to my taste but we agreed that the sauce is the secret charm to this burger -- a seemingly bbq honey mustard sauce. I like the melted American cheese and I noticed that the inside of the buns are fried extra burnt compared to the usual burger buns which I think add texture and flavor to the burger. You can notice the light crisp as you bite into the buns with the patty and the buttery flavor of these buns that wonderfully add to the cholesterol count of this baby.

I'm not a big fan of fastfood but I think this is more worth it than the quarter pounder and cheeseburger (though the cheeeseburger is a nice quick fix if your pocket's pretty tight).
What do you think of this burger? :)
