McD's -- Can I Get a Fresh-Grilled Burger?

nosh | Jun 24, 2007 04:25 AM

I was about to post on the McDonalds vs. BK vs. Wendy's thread. But I realized my comment may be obsolete. I like the McD's double-cheeseburger for a buck. I'll confess I stop and chow one every few weeks. The huge drink special McD's has been running also stocks me for a day of errands, and even then I end up tossing most of it.

I always special order my burger at McDonald's. I don't like mustard. I don't want an old sandwich that has sat under a heat lamp. So I order my double-cheeseburger without mustard and get a reasonably hot, newly assembled sandwich that has some signs of going through a microwave. A few years ago, I had a longer wait but I got freshly grilled patties. Now I understand and have resigned myself to the procedure that they all are premade and later assembled and re-warmed. Even the bun seems steamed rather than grilled and crisped.

Does anyone know if it is possible to somehow order a freshly grilled McD's double cheeseburger? I'm willing to wait. Is there a standard figure for a tip/bribe?
