McDonald’s has added a Chipotle BBQ Bacon Angus burger to its line of premium Angus burgers for a limited time.
The new burger includes a one-third-pound burger topped with bacon, cheese, onions, pickles and a spicy barbecue sauce. The LTO is priced at $3.99 and is available through March 31.
The Oak Brook, Ill.-based burger chain also is offering the chipotle barbecue option in its Snack Wraps.
Two of McDonald’s chief competitors also are featuring premium sandwiches. Wendy’s recently launched an Asiago Ranch Chicken Club sandwich topped with thick-cut apple wood smoked bacon. The permanent menu item is available spicy, grilled, or homestyle, which is breaded and fried but not spicy. The suggested retail price is $4.79.
Last month, Burger King introduced its first stuffed hamburger, the BK Stuffed Steakhouse Burger, which is filled with bits of jalapeño pepper and cheddar cheese. The new burger, priced at a recommended $3.99, is topped with a creamy poblano sauce, tomatoes and lettuce and served on a premium bun. The LTO was available at participating restaurants nationwide through the middle of February.
McDonald’s premium Angus burger line also includes Angus Bacon & Cheese, Angus Deluxe and Angus Mushroom & Swiss.
