I actually had a quarter pounder with them, and thought 'man they would be perfect if that size with some bite'. Next to my double cheeseburgers the el macos hardly looked bigger than them
Lol, how do you possibly eat all that food?
Does that kind of not defeat the purpose of fast cheap food if you spend the amount a restaurant meal would cost on the shit?

Still has giant convenience factor over restaurant. Anyway, when I wanna pig out of junk food, I want junk food which a restaurant wouldn't provide, and I usually want to just pick it up and go home and sit in front of computer/TV with it

yeah, pretty meh. tasty, sure, but should have bought a bigmac perhaps.
no kick to the salsa at all. just the flavour.. lame.

really though, should have just went to HJs instead, least there im full after a burger. i say this after nearly every maccas visit, however..

I had one tonight and it was crap. I'm sure I got a bad one but I can't see it being good even if it was assembled correctly... It came with the salsa sauce on just one side of the burger, sour cream just squirted in a little spot on the other side and the meat was dry.

The Supercharged Zinger I got from KFC was much more tasty except it looked like someone had stood on it. It was squashed flat.

In the process of munching through epic maccas

1x el maco
1x grand chicken
2x large fries
2x large coke
3x double cheeseburger
3x chicken n cheese

The el maco was pretty disappointing this time. As far as I could tell there was no sour cream at all lol

With the excitement in here, I tried one tonight.

Unimpressed.

The $3.60 Double cheeseburgers with a chicken fillet added which I got as well was better.

Both down and I'm still starving. Cottage cheese and some left-over chicken (not enough for a full meal) will have to fill the hole.

Agree... Seems like he's posting at least once a week with a massive McDonalds order and claims he isn't fat because he works it off. I find it really hard to believe with how often he apparently does it
