    "More than good enough" vs "good enough"

    I wanted to know the difference between "more than good enough" and "good enough", "more than good enough" is an idiomatic english as I sometimes see this phrase in the web?

    Can we say "more than enough" instead of "more than good enough"?

    Re: "More than good enough" vs "good enough"

    No. I am trying to point you to the key word here, which is "more."

    Something that is "good enough" is suitable for your needs. A Fiat or a Kia is "good enough" as a source of transportation. A BMW or a Mercedes is "more than good enough" to get you around town.

    A hamburger is "good enough" to stop you from being hungry. A think, juicy steak is "more than good enough."
