After what seems like an eternity of not eating McDonald's, I finally got the itch a few weeks ago. Since the Texas 2 burger was out of beta testing, I thought I'd give it a try, even though I didn't plan on it.
Opening the box, no surprise here. All I could see was a rather large patty of beef and an onion slice sticking out of the side there.
Flopping the bun over, you get a view of some "Texas" chili con carne, slice of bacon, and more onions. Doesn't look pretty, but it all goes down to the same place, right?
It's quite a big burger by McD's standards, and since I'm not a food fighter the meal with fries and drink really filled me up. For me, the Texas 2 burger was quite tasty, especially in comparison to last year's version. The chili con carne-ish sauce was had a different sort of spiciness than you might expect, very "sharp" akin to what you'd find red chili sauce, and was lacking in the "con carne" department. However, the hint of nostalgia for chili con carne on a burger really drew me in, and it was satisfying in its own right.
In the end, I think the selling point is that if I had the choice between a Big Mac and the Texas 2 (and didn't mind spending the extra 200 yen), I would choose the Texas 2.
