Review: The McDonald’s Smoky BLT Quarter Pounder w/ Cheese!

McDonald'sI recently wrote that  McDonald’s was introducing a new burger and McFlurry to their menu for a limited time.

While I’ve been curious about both items, I was more interested in trying out the burger, the Smoky BLT Quarter Pounder with Cheese.

I wasn’t interested in eating a whole McD’s burger so I ordered it for my 10 year-old Lucas, minus the “T” (tomatoes). He was willing to share and I took a bite or two to see what the burger was like.

Here’s some info about the Smoky BLT Quarter Pounders with Cheese.

According to, it “features a 100% fresh beef quarter pound patty cooked right when you order.. It’s topped with two slices of melty American cheese, thick-cut Applewood Smoked bacon, fresh Roma tomatoes, shredded lettuce and smoky sauce – and it’s all served on a toasted sesame seed bun.” a close up of a boxI expected this limited time burger to come in a special box but it was in a regular Quarter Pounder with Cheese packaging.

What stood out most was the good-looking bun and nice chunks of bacon sticking out.a cheeseburger on a blue surfaceAfter removing the burger, you could see this was a pretty big burger.

I took the first bite and was impressed. For a fast food burger, it was pretty decent and the flavor was enjoyable enough.a hand holding a burgerThe bun was pretty fresh as were the shreds of lettuce and the bacon added a lot of flavor along with the creamy smoky sauce. The burger patty had some texture and there was a little flavor but it didn’t do much for the sandwich.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, we found McDonald’s Smoky BLT Quarter Pounders with Cheese to be a positive addition to the menu. While I’m not a big fan of their burgers, this Quarter Pounder did have pretty good flavor due to the smoky ingredients.

Would you give this limited time item a try?
