This lifestyle tip might just be localized to the United States,
I don’t know.
But it’s a moderately dandy tip if I do have to say so myself,
For those who like to keep their eating under monetary control.
Now we all know, I’m a fan of fast food,
White Castle still rules,
But I frequent them all …
Especially Taco Bell after 2:00 am. 🙂
Here in the States, many of the fast food chains have value menus or dollar menus,
Where they feature select items for a reduced price.
The double cheeseburger is usually on the Value Menu for abour a buck ($1).
I usually order off the Value Menu,
On occassion I do get a craving for that …
“Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickle, onion on a sesame seed bun” wonder,
The Big Mac.
But it’s not on the value menu,
And runs regular price anywhere from $2.99 up.
So my friend Long Island shared with me this trick …
Order a double cheeseburger off the Value Menu “like a Big Mac“.
Order a double cheeseburger with lettuce, Big Mac sauce and no ketchup.
It’s basically a Big Mac without that pesky middle bun all for a buck.
You do miss out on the sesame seed buns,
I can deal with that when I’m getting three Big Mac Lights for the price of one Big Mac.
It’s worked everywhere I’ve tried it and most McDonald’s I’ve been to have a button on their register already set up for it,
I do still recommend specifically saying how you want it,
Because yesterday I ordered it “like a Big Mac“,
And they put ketchup on it anyways,
Which was gross.
All I have to do is figure out how to make a Filet o’ Fish Light and I’ll be golden …
Just like the arches !!! 🙂
