However you feel about McDonald's recent revamp of its iconic Dollar Menu, the Dollar Menu & More is likely here to stay. On the positive side, with its introduction comes five new sandwiches, all of which we tried. And while the Bacon Cheddar McChicken ($2), Bacon McDouble ($2), Bacon Buffalo Ranch McChicken ($1), and BBQ Ranch ($1) all tempted with their bold flavors, it's one of the menu's thriftiest items — the Buffalo Ranch McChicken — (at $1) that we kept coming back to bite after bite.
Made up of a crisply-breaded chicken cutlet slicked with a tangy combination of ranch and buffalo sauce, this sandwich offers a generous amount of bang for its (literal) buck, as this take on the menu's classic McChicken is still offered at the original Dollar Menu price. In an ideal world, it might be a slightly less salty, but that's a minor quibble for such a value-minded item. Try it for yourself, and let us know if you agree!
