RIP, McDonald's Dollar Menu

    Now it's Dollar Menu & More. I guess it's like most stuff isn't a dollar at Dollar Store.

    And they didn't raise the prices in response to giving the employees raises to $15/hour!

    The story might be screwed up because it claims new prices for both the McDouble and the double cheeseburger -- which, as far as I know, IS the McDouble. And lists two different prices. Editor?!

    I knew this was coming when I heard radio ads for the "McDouble with bacon for only $2." In other words, you'd get the $1 McDouble and then pay another $1 for two slices of bacon on it.

    They really need to just kill the concept or, at least, the name. Call it the "Value Menu" and stop the lying, if most of the stuff is going to be > $1.

    Bet this causes some of the locations to lose money. I can think of times I swung through the drive-thru to get two $1 items, just cuz it seemed so damn cheap. Stopping there on a whim for a couple of things that cost $1.69 doesn't have the same impulse pull to it. So they get $0 from me. Oh well.

    The double cheeseburger has mustard on it and the McDouble doesn't. If there are differences beyond that, I'm not aware of them.

    the double cheeseburger had two slices of cheese and the mcdouble only has one. It's why there was a cost difference.

    Not that this has anything to do with the dollar menu, but I recently learned they are now charging $3.99 for the Filet 'o' Fish. That is ridiculous.

    Last trip I made to Mickey D's was to use the wifi. I tried to buy a $1 tea and my local store (we only had one) had discontinued the $1 drinks. I left.

    McDouble has been $1.29 in my area of SoCal for some time now. I now get two with fries instead of 3. Plus $1 for 32-ounce sweet tea.

    Thanks for the clarifications on McDouble vs. double cheeseburger ingredients.

    Always enjoy killing layover time in airports by hanging around the McDonald's in those joints and hearing customers bitch about the inflated prices, particularly on items that they're used to seeing on the "Dollar Menu." "Yeah, but not in airports, knuckleheads, where everybody charges more for everything!"

    That's some kind of horseshit. I remember back in the day when they would have those for 49 cents on Fridays during Lent. Probably says more about my older-than-shitness and less about McDonald's, but is still hacks me off.

    Speaking of older-than-shitness, I remember it being my favorite food in the world and my dad put up a stink when I would order them because they were 35 cents while a hamburger was 25 cents.
