McDonald’s is bringing its new customizable sandwich menu to more than 600 restaurants in the Southern California region, the OC Register reports.

Similar to the Chef-Crafted Flavors menu that was tested in San Diego earlier this year, Taste Crafted gives customers multiple bun and topping options as well as the choice of a beef patty, fried chicken or grilled chicken. It resembles a scaled-down version of the Create-Your-Taste menu the chain offers in select cities. 

The customizable sandwiches come in four flavor varieties, with a la carte pricing ranging from $4.59 to $5.19, the OC Register says.

McDonald’s will also offer table service at those 600 locations.
