It is the worst tasting thing McD has put out so far in its entire history of being a fast food restaurant.

Fricken bring the McPizza back, NAO!

McRibs? I miss McRibs so muchie.


OK, there is something almost as bad as the CBO. The grilled onion sandwich thing down in the US. It's a buck, but so not worth it, IMHO.

Speaking of chicken,
I popped down today to the Mariner's game.
Went to Jack in the Box for bfast as usual.
Was going to get a sourdough jack, but saw this instead.


Obviously does not come out looking as nice as the photo.

Consider this, it's like what a McChicken wants to be.
Better bun, 2 chicken patties, 2 slices of cheese (soft and melty), lettuce and tomatoes.
At $4 for the combo, I wonder why they don't have a franchise here.

Too many regulations?

Regulations? You think we're in USSR or something?

It's because Canada's population is overall too low to be concerned with. At most they might open 1 or 2 stores... I guess a few American franchises have done that.. is there still a Carl's Jr in Surrey?

I was thinking more along the lines of no "pink slime" allowed in Canada. Somewhat higher min wage, etc. Start up costs would be high I imagine. New packaging (French and maybe Chinese, LOL).

GVR and GTA should be able to support a franchise or two. But like you said, 1/10 population might not be worth the hassle. Plus, McD's has a pretty good stronghold.

I had that a few weeks ago, the burger wasn't bad. But damn, the patties tasted VERY artificial, the texture of the meat was softer than your typical fast food patty.. I was thinking what they put in it while I was eating it.

Never heard of one being opened in Surrey...yet. But there's one in Chilliwack and another in downtown Vancouver.

Carl's Jr is so expensive for what you get in Canada. At that price point, you're better off getting a real burger.

I drive by the one in downtown regularly, there's always barely anyone in there.

In case anyone likes the McWraps, they're half price from Sept 18-21. Got one for lunch since I like their sweet chili sauce Not sure if this is all McDonald's, but definitely the one on Willingdon and Still Creek.

Uggghhh so hunnggggyy craving mcd's now.

In light of the dicussion on carl jr's how much more expensive (if any) is it then five guys?

If its the same quality and relatively simmilar price then I guess its okay. I would go to five guys more often but the one in west van is closed while the renovations are on-going.

I doubt if their franchise moved up to Canada that their combos would still be as cheap as they are in the states.

i.e. Mcdonalds 20 piece nuggets for 4.99 in the states. 10 nuggets in Canada are like 5.49 or something.

Get half, pay more.
