After receiving an email asking if I’d like to try Quick ‘N Eat flame-grilled patties, I was at a burger crossroads. Number one, I don’t usually respond to anyone asking me to try their products, but I was intrigued.
I avoid frozen burgers like the plague, but I have enjoyed, on occasion, one here and there. White Castle Sliders come to mind, but those things are tiny and more of an afternoon or midnight snack.
Quick ‘N Eat! Table of Contents
The Quick ‘N Eat line is available in 3 oz. and 4 oz. Angus beef patties and 3 oz. turkey patties.
They’ll be launching a bacon and cheese patty version early next year.
There are only five ingredients in the beef (beef, water, spices, salt, & natural flavoring) and six in the turkey (turkey, salt, mustard, spices, natural flavors & garlic powder). They come frozen in resealable bags but are ready to eat after just two minutes in the microwave.
The Quick ‘N Eat packaging mentions that you can heat them in the oven or even throw them on a chargrill or flattop. But that kind of defeats the purpose when they’re already fully cooked.
Plus, if I’m buying this product, it’s cause I want something that can be ready to go quickly.
The Burger Moment of Truth
First, I attempted to cook one of the quarter-pound beef and one turkey patty in an air fryer. Save yourself the trouble, don’t do it. Microwaving these is hands down the best heating method.
The half-pounder did take a little bit longer to be the right temp for me, but overall we’re talking they took in the 2 to 3-minute range. The beef was juicier, but that’s to be expected since turkey patties aren’t exactly known for always being succulent.
My parents were my co-taste testers. Pops toasted the buns lightly, and we let the American cheese do its own thing and melt.
They both loved the beef patties. However, we all agreed that the quarter-pounder was the real winner, and now I can see a possible double soon.
Please notice the beef burgers received the Burger Beast plate treatment. Sorry, but there is no such thing as a
turkey burger. Alright, enough burger preaching from me!
Quick ‘N Eat burgers get a big thumbs up from me. I like them so much; they have a space in my freezer designated just for them.
Where to find Quick ‘N Eat Burgers?
Until recently, they were primarily available in Costco, Sam’s Club, and some regional supermarkets like Albertsons, Woodman’s Markets, and Giant Eagle. Quick ‘N Eat is now available at Walmart about a month ago.
The Walmart Neighborhood Market nearest to me never seems to have any. It’s OK, though, cause Sam’s Club sells a three lb. pound box that brings 12 quarter pounders.

Quick ‘ N Eat Burgers NO MORE
In July 2022, Quick ‘N Eat! quietly updated its website and announced that it had made its last flame-grilled patties. It makes sense cause for the previous few months, it had been challenging to find any.
Yet, I think there is a solution. One of the Walmart brands, Marketside, sells individual microwaveable Angus cheeseburgers ($3), double cheeseburgers ($4), and bacon cheeseburgers ($3.50) that come on a sesame seed bun.
If I were a betting man, I’d say these are the same burger patties. Go ahead and try them and let me know,
Also, there’s a Great Value Cheeseburger 4-pack ($6.38) which is a good burger too!

Well thus is horrible news. why would a company stop making something that was a) delicious and b) sold out everywhere and c) where a huge part of the diet world. UGH
I totally agree. I had just started buying them and then haven’t been able to find them since. SO VERY DISSAPPOINTED. They were so delicious.
So disappointed that Quick N Eat angus burgers have gone by the wayside. My sister and I (both seniors) were buying them from Costco – now…no more. Maybe the the company who makes them will see all of the reviews and either return to making them or sell the recipe to another burger company! One can hope!
The company no longer exists.
I was very leery of trying the quick n ready burgers. Sorry to say, I have tried many frozen, pre-cooked hamburgers and never liked any of them. My husband and I tried theses and they were INCREDIBLE!! A+++++++ They have restaurant quality taste, and ready in one minute in the microwave!! My brother from IL, thought the same thing, he tried to buy them, couldn’t find them up north. Then I couldn’t find them in our Walmart here. I had that sinking feeling that they were no longer being made. So sad. I hope someone can make something just as good, but those will be hard to beat!!!
They should have sold their recipe, and processing information to another company. I would gladly pay more to have these available again. These burgers are better than any burger I’ve had at a restaurant! I NEED these burgers! My grandparents 93 & 89 at the time it was announced, were so disappointed, as we all were. We love these burgers! Do we need to do a March on the Quick N Eat headquarters with news crews? LOL They’re not there, but they would see the support and maybe go back into business. Again, I’m more than willing to pay more, and I’m sure I’m not alone. I hate to think that any burger the rest of my life will be a disappointment, because they’re gone.
ugh… just thought the box had different graphics… these Don Lee Farms are horrible compared to Quick and Ready. This has been a staple in my diet for years. This sucks!
Try the individual microwaveable burgers with buns from Walmart; they’re close, if not the same.
Do they come in a version without cheese?
Agreed! Same for us. The new brand is HORRIBLE!
I totally agre that the Don Lee fully cooked burgers are horrible. It looks like it has more that just ground chuck in the patty. I bought some just to try but I am on the hunt for something like the Quick N Eat burgers that Costco used to sell.
Quick N’ Eat from CostCo were subbed to ‘Don Lee Farms’, for the last three months, Aug 22, Sept 22, Oct 22, Nov 22. Now Don Lee Farms has been discontinued. Don Lee in my opinion was inferior to Quick N’ Eat in taste test as Don Lee tasted like a vegetarian substitute. CostCo has put both on ‘Do not continue to stock’ basis. Huge MISTAKE. ITEM 1687985. The Frozen Angus Quick ‘N Eat was the better tasting burger than 99% of what was available to the discriminating consumer… They will be missed.
Great. One of the two foods my autistic kid likes is now discontinued. FML.
Quick-N-Eat were Really the Best Burgers Ever! 🙂 🙂 Thanks, Burger Beast for Your review! Sad they are ‘no more’ Maybe, they may come back some day 🙂 Will follow your site for future Goodies 🙂
Walmart and Sam’s Club have discontiued these. Apparently they were too popular and were taking sales away from the inferior Sam’s Choise Angus Burgers.
Walmart is currently selling an individual burger complete with cheese & bread. I’m pretty sure it’s the same Quick ‘N Eat patty.
