Review: McDonald's - BBQ Ranch Burger

McDonald's BBQ Ranch Burger is a new value-menu burger off of McDonald's new Dollar Menu & More.

It features a hamburger patty, a slice of pasteurized process white cheddar, zesty barbecue ranch sauce, and chile lime tortilla strips on a plain hamburger bun for $1.

The key flavor for the BBQ Ranch Burger is the barbecue ranch sauce which doesn't really taste like ranch so much as a sweet creamy chipotle sauce. There's a nice smokiness to be had along with a slight tangy sweetness.

The chips were a little stale and didn't sport much in the chili lime department but still added an enjoyable crunch. I wonder if the staleness is by design to decrease the chance of people cutting the inside of their mouths with broken chip pieces.

The cheese was mostly not melted and added the vague creaminess of a very mild cheddar. It's pasteurized process so it had the same texture as American cheese but with less flavor.

The beef patty managed to hold its own and not get lost in the shuffled.

Overall, McDonald's BBQ Ranch Burger brings a nice bit of new flavor and crunchiness that's pretty good for a buck. I especially enjoyed the smokiness of the BBQ ranch sauce and the chips.
