I enjoy McHale's monsterously huge (2oz short of a pound) bacon cheeseburger better than any other and have eaten it often. This past Saturday I dropped by with a friend and both of us were not particularly famished so we asked for another plate to split one burger and were told about their awesome off-menu $1 burger split option.
For only $1 more than the burger (which is $8.75 for the bacon cheese) you can split the patty between two and each get a full plate of fries, two buns, plenty of bacon and all the other toppings.
That deal really hit the spot and made me full and happy. Way to go McHales!
McHales is on 46th and 8th. I have only eaten the bacon cheeseburger, potato skins and crisp steak fries there. All have always been excellent. My friend also discovered that they do not serve milkshakes. It's more of a traditional bar/restaurant combo.
I forgot to ask if this deal has been in effect for a long time. I hope so as I will be sad if it doesn't continue into my future. The future where I enjoy McHale's bacon cheeseburgers much more often because they have become a more affordable option.
