This week Pete and I took a little trip down to San Diego Midway area to see McDonald’s Build Your Burger for ourselves.

We had heard all about it online and the pictures looked amazing. I thought it was a really cool concept and I wanted to see if it lived up to everything I heard about it. 

If this is your first time learning about McDonald’s Build Your Burger here is what it’s all about.

Build Your Burger is putting the burger of their dreams right at customers’ fingertips through an interactive kiosk in restaurant lobbies. Build Your Burger offers a variety of toppings, sauces and buns, including new items such as guacamole and tortilla strips. The custom burger creations are grilled fresh to order and delivered to the customer’s table for a unique dining experience. Build Your Burger is available at a handful of select Southern California locations for in-store customers.

We were welcomed to the restaurant by a table of fresh produce that they use on their Build A Burgers. 

Te tomatoes are sliced fresh daily and the burgers have large leaf lettuce. There are two buns to choose from and they are not your typical fast food buns. They are both so good!

Then it was time to Build (Y)our Burger.

We were escorted to the touch screen kiosks and picked all of our toppings and bun. I got everything that was offered on mine including guacamole, 2 different cheeses, grilled and raw onions and more. Pete’s was a little simpler but it still had lot’s of yummy toppings. You can even get bacon and an extra patty if you like.
