McDonald's Israel Debuts $9.25 'Big America' Burgers
Looks like America isn't the only place where competition from specialty burger chains has inspired McDonald's to class up its offerings. In Israel the fast food giant is introducing a series of "Big America" burgers. Like Americans themselves, these burgers are hefty: patties weigh just over a half-pound. They also cost the equivalent of $9.25 apiece. A combo meal runs $14.50, which is apparently significantly cheaper than its boutique competitors.
