McDonald's Testing Build-Your-Own-Combos

McDonald's is testing build-your-own combos out in San Antonio, TX that let customers mix and match entrees with different side options beyond the standard fries and a fountain drink.

According to the Houston Chronicle, San Antonio is one of six markets for the test (although the company declined to name the other five) and the new platform replaces Extra Value Meals at test locations.

Besides fries, other side options include a side salad, sundae, three cookies, and more.

Entrees are individually priced and separated into two categories: Premium, which include sandwiches like the Bacon Habanero Quarter Pounder, and classic, which includes burgers like the Big Mac and McRib. So basically, you pick an entree and then two sides for a $1 each.

Update 11/6/14: Brand Eaters confirm test is also ongoing in Baltimore, MD, Tulsa, OK, and Piedmont Triad area, NC markets. Sides tack on an additional $1 cost to the combos in at least one market, so if a Big Mac is in the classic tier at $3, a Big Mac with fries is $4 total.

Post will been updated as more information comes in.
