McDonald's is testing a new addition to its Quarter Pounder line -- and South Florida is the fast food giant's guinea pig.
Mickey D's is introducing the new Clubhouse Burger locally. The sandwich starts with a quarter-pound patty on a "soft and warm new artisan roll," then adds caramelized, grilled onions, thick-cup applewood smoked bacon, white cheddar, fresh leaf lettuce and ripe tomatoes to the sandwich.
The Clubhouse is available at all Miami-Dade, Broward, and Monroe county locations now through early October. Since the item is being tested, prices may vary in different cities, but a sandwich is priced at $4.49 and a regular sized value meal combo is $6.19 at the Coconut Grove location. Suggested retail is $4.79 for the burger alone. The South Florida region will be one of the first areas in the country to try this new version of the classic Quarter Pounder.
