Yet another quality upgrade for McDonald’s. 

McDonald’s is looking to make yet another menu change: fresh ground beef. The fresh ground beef, instead of the usual frozen patties, is being tested already at 14 Dallas restaurants.

If the test-run is successful, fresh beef could be expanded to all McDonald’s restaurants across the nation.

The tests began this November and will continue in the coming months.

“Like all of our tests, this one too is designed to see what works and what doesn’t within our restaurants by considering the operational experience, customer response, price points and other important information which may inform future decisions,” McDonald’s spokesperson Lisa McComb said. “It’s very premature to draw any conclusions from this test.”

Right now, the test is limited to the quarter-pound burger patties: the Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Bacon Clubhouse, and the Homestyle Burger, a regional burger served in Texas, according to Fortune.
