While the sub $10 lunch review series has been exploring the weird and the wonderful options arounds Civic today we thought we’d add a control.
And so I walked into the James Court maccas at noon today to buy the Mighty Angus large meal for $9.90 (which includes drink and fries).
If you’ve been confused by the fast food chains all selling branded Angus beef and wondered where all the extra herds of Angus cows came from there’s a simple answer.
Angus cattle was always the primary source of beef in Australia, it just got rebranded.
But the Mighty Angus burger is actually pretty good as these things go.
A big thick oval patty, cheese, bacon, sour cream, red onion, and a chutney.
I know it’s fashionable to hate on Ronald these days, but while this is not a healthy meal it is undoubtedly tasty.
And while McDonalds service has generally been slipping for years in Australia today James Court was actually working really well. Polite english as a first language service and the meal delivered quickly and efficiently.
