UPDATE 1/25: Citing overwhelming interest, the Big Mac ATM will relocate to the Kenmore Square McDonald's location (540 Commonwealth Ave), where it will remain freestanding and indoors on Jan. 31, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. McDonald's reps will also be handing out coupons comped burgers on the Huntington Bridge for those unable to attend.
If you ever wanted to order a cheeseburger void of any human interaction, then McDonald’s has a solution for you! A Big Mac ATM — you read that right — will pop-up in the Huntington Bridge between Copley Mall and the Prudential Center on Jan. 31. The automated hamburger dispensary will serve the Big Mac in three sizes: regular, Mac Jr. and the Grand Mac.
Oh, and they’re totally free. For those of us living under a rock, here’s what’s on a Big Mac (feel free to sing along):
Two all-beef patties/special sauce/lettuce, cheese/pickles, onions/on a sesame seed bun
The new Grand Mac features larger buns and two larger beef patties, while the Mac Jr. is a single patty burger. Neither make for good songs, but they're probably just as tasty.
The magic — or secret sauce, if you will — of the Big Mac ATM comes from its ability to pop out burgers without any visible staff or kitchen attached to the unit. Just pick the Big Mac of your choice from the machine's touchscreen, Tweet out your swag (you've gotta pay somehow) and *BOOM* free burger.
When asked how exactly this will be pulled off, we received the following response via Vincent Spadea, local McDonald’s owner/operator, “We can’t give away all the secrets, but fresh Macs will be constantly loaded into the machine to ensure a high quality experience."
