As we mentioned before, the CBO has arrived in America.  A staple on menus in several other countries, the CBO offers some interesting alternatives for McDonald's fans.

There are two versions of the CBO, chicken or beef.  When you go with the beef option, the base burger is the Angus patty that makes up McDonald's other specialty sandwiches.  The chicken version will be interesting to try and I will review that in an upcoming article.

The sandwich is sturdy and strikingly un-McDonald's looking.  Employing a recent trend, the CBO comes wrapped in a made-for-holding paper wrapper inside a cardboard box.  As an aside, it is interesting to see how all the new sandwiches seem to be embracing the paper wrapper.  And you know how we here at Fast Food Source feel about paper wrappers!  We are FOR them!

My sandwich was hefty and generously endowed with nice fat pieces of bacon, tangy mayo spread and juicy onions.  My first thought when picking up and biting into this sandwich?  It tastes like something Jack In The Box would make.  That is not a bad thing.  In fact, Jack's Ultimate Cheeseburger ranks up there near the top of Fast Food Source's meaty cheesy hit list.  The CBO is meaty, cheesy, big, thick and juicy.  Exactly as it should be.

Bottom line, the beef version of the CBO is as advertised.  I look forward to trying the chicken variation, especially to find out if it digs Mickey D out of the bad chicken menu hole they seem to have fallen into.

Some new pictures added for Lenny's Burger, a small chain here in Arizona.  Here's the double cheeseburger:

Apparently, Carl's Jr. thinks that the hockey puck smashed breakfast sandwich below is appetizing!  No, this didn't get crushed in the bag - it was served to my wife this way.  Normally, Carl's has a higher level of care in sandwich assembly.  At the very least, they are proud to offer towering burgers overflowing with meaty goodness.  I guess those sandwich stackers sleep late and miss breakfast.

We've started bringing the fast food menus back online.  The first to return are the most-recent ones, that is, everything that is within about 18-months or so.  We'll ease into a regular pace of phasing others as well, so thanks everyone for the feedback and glad to see that these are useful!

When I was a kid growing up in the '70's in L.A., Pup 'n' Taco was a special place.  Even more than Wienerschnitzel (or Der Wienerschnitzel as it was known), Pup 'N' Taco provided comfort food.  I can remember my mom taking me there when I was sick and stayed home from school.  Apparently, I was not to sick to enjoy a mustard dog.

Here's a classic commercial and some links around the web that will help you fellow Southern California kids remember:

McDonald's is rolling out a European favorite just in time for fall.  The Cheddar Bacon Onion Sandwich (CBO) made its debut on October 19 and will roll out to restaurants nationwide.  According to the announcement, "The tasty new Cheddar Bacon Onion is all about customization and available to order as an Angus Burger... OR a grilled or crispy Premium Chicken Sandwich!"

Here's the CBO on the menu in Greece that I snapped in 2010:

The sandwich sounds like it will be different from that pictured above, as the ingredients are listed as "two new premium toppings of white cheddar and grilled onions, and combined with our existing hickory-smoked bacon and topped with a creamy mustard sauce."

Check it out.  I'll provide a review soon.  If you are really into this, you can follow McDonald's on Twitter (@McDonalds) with the special hashtag #CBO.
