Food of the Nineties, McDonald's Big Xtra
No pictures available yet!
Designed to compete with the BK Whopper (who came out with the Big King to compete with the Big Mac). Lettuce, tomatoe, onions, cheese and a spiced up patty. Replaced the Arch Deluxe, which was a replacement for the McDLT. Big Xtra was recently replaced with the Big n Tasty, which was the same but based on the smaller Quarter Pounder patty.

I used to eat these suckers religiously back in my hayday. I remember the last one I ate because I got sick and threw up later that night! I think I was a sophomore or junior in high school. I seriously think they took it off the menu when I stopped ordering it - as I was potentially the number one consumer.

The Quarter Pounder is always good but this was better. Can never have enough McDonald's!

I am outraged that they have taken it off the menu. I loved it. It was my favorite. Nothing is the same. :(

I'm a former MickeeD's employee, I remember how to make it. The meat was HUGE, before you grill it, you put seasoning on the patty and it would permeate the whole patty. I got them free when I was in the breakroom. Yummy!!!

There were sooo good, the best product McDonald's ever had. It tasted like a burger you would get at the diner or a steakhouse. It was a really exceptional product and I remember the veggies were always cold and fresh.

I had forgotten the name of this one and finally remembered it just now. It was my fave McD's burger for years, I literally hadn't tasted a Big Mac or anything else on the menu its entire run. It had the seasoned patty, lettuce, tomato, onions, cheese, and most importantly -- mayo & ketchup, nothing else. It was SUCH a good burger! I can't imagine why they'd discontinue it :/
