Harvey’s – Bacon Cheddar Great Canadian Burger

Harvey'sHarvey's in Home Depot

Today I had Harvey’s ‘Bacon Cheddar Great Canadian Burger’. This is considered their Premium Burger. As with all of Harvey’s burgers, this is a charbroiled, cooked-to-order burger and there is a choice of nine toppings. I had mine with lettuce, tomato, pickle, banana peppers and their mesquite hot barbeque sauce – which isn’t too hot by the way. It was tasty, but in this category (under $7.99), McDonald’s Angus burger wins hands down. Update: McDonald’s new ‘Third Pounder’ is not as good as the Great Canadian !

McDonald’s – Angus Burger

McDonald's Angus BurgerMcDonald's

McDonald’s came out with their Angus burger in May 2008 (apparently after years of development !). The 1/3 pound, 100% Angus beef patty – lightly seasoned with salt and pepper – is one of many elements which give this new burger a homemade look and taste. With fresh ingredients including ripe tomato slices, crisp whole leaf lettuce, rings of red onions, sliced pickles, savoury garlic mayonnaise and tangy mustard on a toasted bakery-style bun exclusive to McDonald’s. Bacon & Natural Cheddar Cheese is optional for an extra charge of about $1.00 (the price below is for the bacon, cheddar Angus burger).

In its price range, this burger ranks at the top, but overall, not so much. I’ve had this burger in the past and the patty was quite dry, but this time, it was juicy and flavourful. If you’re in a rush and you want a good, decent, cheap burger, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this one.

NOTE : This burger no longer exists. McDonald’s new Third Pounder is reviewed here…
