News: McDonald's - New Grilled Onion Cheddar Burger

McDonald's Grilled Onion Cheddar Burger
ushers in the new year with a new, limited-time addition to their dollar menu: the Grilled Onion Cheddar Burger.

Borrowing a few cues from the CBO, the McDonald's hamburger variant keeps it simple with a beef patty topped with grilled onions and white cheddar pasteurized cheese product. It's pretty much a junior-sized CBO minus the sauce and the bacon. For $1, that's pretty nice.

I have to say, I like the simple approach. Cheese, beef, and onion... sounds good to me.

  1. These are very good.

  2. Good needs a condiment they were wiling to add may for. Mr

  3. Terrible. Burnt onions, small bland burger, cold cheese.

  4. For those of you following Weight Watchers, that's an 8 point burger ~ yikes!

  5. Good, but sort of pathetic compared to their marketing photos.

  6. I just finished one right now. Better than that nasty dbl cheeseburger. Oh god those onions. shoulda got more than 1.

  7. I ate two of these. Burnt onions ruined it. Got heartburn soon after.

  8. this one was borrowed from A&W Canada. they have had the buddy burgers with sauteed onions for over 9 months prior to this article in select markets and went Canada wide in September.

  9. flavorless chicken, and mcdouble my rear, the mc chicken the ish especially the hot one, and mc double's the best value for a buck you can get at any fast food restaurant. That being the onion and cheddar's good I wished it was bigger though

  10. It's small but actually really tasty - not big enough to be a meal but satisfying as a hasty snack. Much better than most of Mickey D's stuff but only if you like caramalized onions. I do, so yum. Agree that is it is similar to A&W's Buddy burgers which I got to try over Christmas break. It was the success of those ones that made me want to try the McDonald's one. although I rarely eat there otherwise. I was not disappointed.
