Big Mac

Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a seasame seed bun.

The Big Mac was invented by Jim Delligatti, an early McDonald's franchisee who operated several restaurants in the Pittsburgh region.

Delligatti invented the distinctive double-decker sandwich in the summer of 1967 in the kitchen of his McDonald's on McKnight Road in Ross Township, just north of Pittsburgh. He debuted it in his Uniontown, Fayette County McDonald's for 45 cents. Dubbed the Big Mac by a McDonald's ad woman to complete with the then-popular Big Boy, the sandwich was an immediate hit and added to McDonald's menu across the country the following year.
