KANSAS CITY, Mo. — McDonald’s has a new menu item featuring Kansas City, but there’s a catch: It’s only available overseas.
The fast food giant on Tuesday tweeted that the Kansas City Stack has arrived and will be available at locations in the United Kingdom through June 25.
Yeehaw! The Kansas City Stack has arrived. Available until 25th June 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/FwfW3iykCp

The burger, part of the Great Tastes of America menu, features two beef burgers, bacon, cheese, onions, lettuce and a “smoky steakhouse BBQ sauce” sandwiched between a “BBQ flavored” toasted bun, according to the online menu.
Some on Twitter noted that the burger might not be the best representation of Kansas City barbecue.
In Kansas City, we call this a double bacon cheeseburger...— marKCrouser loves BBQ smoke in the morning (@MarkCrouserKC) June 18, 2019
Now, if you’re to add some beef burnt ends, pulled pork and beef brisket, we’ll talk.
This is very wrong and not a KC Stack.— KJ (@ksjohannesen) June 18, 2019
To add insult to injury, the tweet announcing the burger included a “yeehaw!” — which also raised some eyebrows.
Hi -- travel writer and Kansas Citian here. "Yeehaw" is definitely not a part of our local parlance, FYI. Come visit sometime and we'll show you real barbecue.— Katy✨Schamberger (@KatyWrites) June 18, 2019
Speaking as a Kansas Citian... "Yeehaw"?— Jackie Bradbury (@JackieB23) June 18, 2019
Other items on McDonald’s Great Tastes of America menu include the New York Stack, the Mississippi Stack and the Nashville Chicken.
