How in the HELL can that ONLY be 540 calories?
It's two pieces of protein, a little cheese, sauce and two slices of bacon.
The overall size of the sandwich is pathetic, so even if you don't get the grilled version, the surface area of the filets limits the impact of the frying. Bacon doesn't contain a thousand calories like everybody seems to accept(a normal slice of bacon is about 50 calories, but these aren't normal slices, they are pitiful), they are pretty conservative with how much sauce they give you, and one slice of cheese certainly doesn't break the bank.
It's hilarious how America shits itself over this, all they did was take the average fast food sandwich and remove the bun. The white sugary bun is often the most unhealthy aspect of a fast food burger, what we have here is a hunk of protein with some fat for flavor. I almost never eat fast food(in part because it's expensive), but I had no other option and an extra $5 to waste, I would definitely opt for the Double Down.
