The best burger ever was the arch deluxe. The kids couldn’t handle such an adult burger and people started saying “the arch deluxe. It really sucks.” It did NOT suck but most people who dine at McDonalds have never properly developed their palate

The only problem that I have with big mac is that it breaks while you're eating it and pieces of it fall around everywhere. It's just unstable. If they somehow squeezed them or make them more integrated, I'd go now and buy 10 of them.

Supposedly they changed up the bun ratio and increased the amount of sauce the squirt guns dispense a couple years ago. My dad used to always ask for extra sauce (and extra pickles), but I think it ruins the bun integrity.

To be honest, the Big Mac is a bit of an anomaly to me. It is obviously McDonald’s most famous and popular offer but I order it somewhat rarely. I am not sure why it isn’t my go-to meal but the McChicken, Quarter Pounder and even the deceptively modest Cheeseburger begs my attention. I even order the Filet O’Fish more than the Big Mac.

That said, the rare time I order a Big Mac almost inevitably results in an enjoyable experience. I find it can be quite variable and range from satisfactory to almost transcendent. While at first it seems to be a gimmick (solely because of the three-part bun) it really is greater than the sum of its parts. I find a Double Cheeseburger to be less enjoyable than a regular Cheeseburger: it lacks balance. Yet does another bun section elevate the Double Cheeseburger to a Big Mac? Of course not, it’s a laughable premise.

The Big Mac is an exceptional harmony of meat:bun, everyone knows this and it is its major selling point. Yet the condiments are what make it truly stand out: the minced onions offer a delicate sweet-sharp flavor that goes perfect with the generous helping of special sauce, which truly deserves its moniker. The special sauce is savory, tangy and sweet and is counterbalanced by both the minced onions and salty acidic contrast of the pickle slices. Shredded iceberg lettuce might seem pedestrian but it offers a finely crunchy texture and refreshing, cool feel that ultimately brightens what could be a heavy, unwieldy sandwich if imperfectly executed. The American cheese slices are a given but do not go unnoticed and the patties of course deserve little description: they are sublime.

In fact, I had a Big Mac today and it was, to put it plainly, incredible. I ate it first before moving onto my McChicken combo with medium fries and a medium Diet Coke and I have to admit that it was the most interesting and exciting part of the whole meal. The Big Mac sauce was generous and a flavor explosion that surprised me at the first bite. The entire time I was eating it I thought, as I have before, “why don’t I get the Big Mac more often?!”

I’m starting to become a convert. It’s taken me quite some time but I can see, or rather taste, the appeal. I will get another one tomorrow and see if I have the same reaction.

I was shocked to learn that the Double Big Mac was not a regular menu item south of the border and that they treated it as a promotional thing. In leafland it's always been right there on the menu board alongside the regular Big Mac. I think the two extra patties solve some of the problems with the bun:meat:sauce ratio, though if it falls apart on you, you end up with a big wad of meat.

Taken together, the assembly of the Big Mac is evidence of intense contemplation and execution. The layering is truly fantastic especially since the condiments resting on the bottom bun result in your tongue being immediately welcomed by a textural and flavorful explosion as it makes its way through the fresh, soft bun. The mouthfeel is exquisite especially when the McDonald’s crew members are unsparing with the special sauce, which in my experience is almost always.

The Big Mac is invariably a messy affair because of the special sauce and shredded iceberg lettuce but that adds to the fun of the experience. After dining on a Big Mac, who doesn’t love to scoop up the fallen iceberg lettuce ribbons from the container and enjoy this natural invigorating palate cleanser? It is a ritual known all over the world and prepares you for starting (or finishing, depending on your eating styles) the world famous fries next. I even sometimes endearingly call it “car confetti” because of its propensity to decorate my car only to be found days or weeks later.

No, the Big Mac is not in my top 4, heck maybe not even in my top 5, but that’s because I’m too enamored by the McChicken, Cheeseburger, Quarter Pounder (and its promotional variations) and the Filet O’Fish. But when the mood suits me I’ll get a McChicken combo and a Big Mac on the side and it’s always almost enough to convert me. And why wouldn’t it? It is the keystone offering of McDonald’s, the radical classic that rewrote the hamburger and still holds up all these years later.

I know my views might seem provocative or even shocking to many of the Big Mac fanatics out there. But all I can say is kudos to you and maybe tomorrow I’ll see you at the drive thru. You can watch me order my usual and hesitate before saying “and a Big Mac on the side, please” as I shake my head and smile to myself.
