In a bid to go head to head with its competitors' high-end burgers, McDonald's is testing hamburgers made with Angus beef at six Los Angeles-area restaurants, Reuters reports. A McDonald's spokeswoman says customer response to the burgers over the past month has been positive, but no decision about expanding the test has been made.

Being tested are three new products, called Angus Third Pounders. They include: Angus with cheese, Angus Deluxe with lettuce and tomato, and Angus Mushroom and Swiss, and are priced between $3.39 and $3.99. A double cheeseburger, McDonald's biggest seller, costs $1.
