I'm trying to decide whether or not I'm surprised by the fact that McDonald's remains Australia's favourite fast food, over the likes of KFC and Subway. I'm going to say "no" — despite moves from smaller franchises and a general push for healthiness, one cannot simply ignore the pervasiveness of the big yellow M.
Are you planning to head to McDonald's for a cheeky Big Mac this arvo? You might want to run your eyes over this infographic first - it explains all the ways an Aussie Big Mac affects your body one hour after scoffing it down. (Surprise, surprise: It turns out they aren't particularly good for you.)

To make the occasion, we've assembled some of our tastiest burger posts for you to snack on. Whether you want to know how to make your own McDonald's special sauce or revisit the colon-throttling horror of the "Colonel's McWhopper", you'll find it all here.
Reverse engineering Macca's famed McNuggets is not for the faint-hearted. One plucky member of Facebook's "Homemade McDonalds" group took the challenge on head first -- and has created her own version of The Nuggs that are so, so close to the original, she never has to visit Macca's again. Here's how you can make your own Chicken McNuggets at home.
To celebrate the launch of its revamped mobile ordering app, McDonald's is offering new members a whopping 25 per cent off their first order. If you're buying for the family, that's a pretty big saving and well worth downloading the free app for. Here are the details!
Outside of ordering chicken nuggs for potential Lifehacker articles, I wasn't a big fan of McDonald's "mymacca's" app. It was clunky and constantly kicked me out - not things I was all that happy with when you're trying to order fast food. But now, Maccas has overhauled the app! So how is it?
In a world first, McDonald's Australia has launched a Wagyu Beef Burger featuring genuine wagyu beef patties sourced from Queensland farmers. Sounds delicious, but does it actually taste any different to a McDonald's Angus beef patty or a run-of-the-mill Quarter Pounder? We conducted a blind taste test to find out.
Most leading fast food franchises are available in multiple countries around the world. However, the menu options can vary wildly depending on the tastes, culture and customs of locals.

It's no secret that Rick and Morty fans are obsessed with McDonald's "Szechuan Sauce", a limited edition Mcnugget dipping sauce that came out in 1998 to promote the Disney film Mulan. If you want to find out what all the fuss is about, this DIY recipe is pretty damn delicious.
A McDonald's customer in Sydney has been questioned by police after failing to return the wrong takeaway order. The customer decided to eat the incorrect order - which exceeded his purchase by approximately $17 - to save himself a trip back to the store. This resulted in police arriving at his house to accuse him of stealing. (Yes, really.) So is it legal to keep takeaway food you receive by accident?
"Is McDonald's open on Good Friday?" "What about Easter Sunday?" "Is it open on Easter Monday?" These are questions our intrepid fast food reporters get asked every April. Personally, we're not sure how anybody could have room for a Big Mac and fries after all those chocolate eggs - but some Aussies have prodigious appetites.
The recipe for McDonald's Big Mac sauce was allegedly leaked online last year. It is - as most mass-produced sauces are - a long list of oil, corn syrup, stabilisers, emulsifiers, flavourings and preservatives. It's (kind of) interesting, but not exactly helpful for those who want to replicate the sweet and tangy special sauce for their burgers at home.
