When a person is looking for some cheap, fast, high fat food, McDonald's is the place to go. Hardee's offers a Low Carb Thickburger, and it's pretty good, but it is also $6. Sometimes you just want something super cheap, like a $1 McDouble. You can order them normal and just use the bun as a holder, but not eat it. We have had success in the past ordering a burger with lettuce instead of a bun, and it comes in a little dish with green leaf lettuce on either side for no extra charge. Kent was frustrated today, because the drive through worker obviously couldn't grasp what he was asking for, and told the cook to give us shredded lettuce. Not very helpful for picking up our burgers! Lesson learned- be specific and don't assume the teenager taking your order understands what you are talking about. But, we also realized that this could be good sometime if we actually ordered it with shredded lettuce and Big Mac sauce for a Big Mac Salad. This time though, we just ate our burgers with silverware. A couple of these and a Diet Dr. Pepper make for a pretty satisfying $3 lunch!
