Burger King

You made me laugh! Thanks.

 

Yep, steel-belted radials would probably bring down the stoutest wood chipper.

 

It depends on the staff at the Burger King, A LOT. It can be good or it can be dangerous to your health and good sanity. A bad meal can bring me down in a hurry. Ours varies from excellent to inedible. But as far as worse places, my last visit to Subway was horrific. That was only for that location and that particular visit, although I'll never risk another one there. It was especially disappointing because I had been jonesing for months about a great Subway sandwich I got at the food court inside Duke Hospital in Durham. They even had alfalfa sprouts and all the ingredients were fresh and perfect. It just goes to show that everything depends on the staff at your local store, and some of them do not have any motivation to provide a good product. I realize the pay is low, but you know what? You are here so you might as well do the best you can with what you got. That is the way I always looked at it anyway, when I was working as a usually underpaid whatever. Some do and some don't. It's a complete crapshoot, and I am not a gambler.

 

I gave up on Subway when they asked me if I wanted lettuce on my salad.

Our BK must not have air scrubbers, you can stand outside and smell the broiling going on. It is also directly across from our Hostess/Dolly Madison plant so while smelling burgers, you also get the smell of bread and cupcakes and Twinkies baking. I think I gain weight every time I am stopped there at the traffic light.

The Harris Poll - 2017 Burger Brands...

  1. Five Guys Burgers and Fries
  2. In-N-Out Burger
  3. Shake Shack
  4. Wendy's
  5. Culver's
  6. Whataburger
  7. McDonald's
  8. SONIC America's Drive-In
  9. Smashburger
  10. Steak 'n Shake

Is there a flame broiled burger in there?

 

Actually, that may be a marketing hype list.  I recently went to Five Guys for the first time and concluded that while the burger was good, it was nowhere near as good as all the news articles plastered on their walls would suggest.  And that's really all their decor is - news clippings.  It was like I walked into their own little burger masturbatoreum.

The small town next to me has a McD's and I sometimes stop there after my hair appointments.

I always order the chicken sandwich (with lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo) and a small bag o' fries.

It's actually very good.

Burger King  gets little attention on eG.

 

anyway  thought Id use this thread :

 

Google  " burger king plant based whopper "

 

who is going to take a Hit for the Team ?

 

I would , but I have very hard and fast rules on ' Fast Food ' :

 

no coupon , no fast food

 

works like a charm.

 

[ed.:  Shake Shack is not classified as Fast Food by rotuts .   he is planning for a SmokeShake later today , having business near a SS ]

I think Carl's Jr has a non-meat patty offering, as well.

Not interested in the least for meatless anything. :hmmm:

"Burger King takes on McDonald's with a range of 'unhappy' meals"

Quote

The fast-food chain introduced a range of boxed deals it's calling "Real Meals," including the Pissed Meal, Blue Meal, Salty Meal, Yaaas Meal and DGAF (Don't Give a F---) Meal as part of Mental Health Awareness Month in May. The deal includes a Whopper sandwich, french fries and a drink.

"Burger King restaurants understands that no one is happy all the time. That's why they're asking guests to order a Whopper meal based on however they might be feeling," an online release stated Wednesday.

It's an interesting advertising spin.

I'll take a Pissed Meal, please. :laugh:

How can anything good come of this? What are  they thinking? And why would this mental health group sign on?

 

Having said that the DGAF meal fits with the usual attitude at the BK drive thru.

But the meals are all the same! (Whopper value meal) I clicked through expecting to see meals to fit the theme, like a DGAF meal might contain three orders of fries and a large chocolate shake, while a Blue meal might be a side salad with the dressing on the side.

Don't go there but you have to remember who ad creators  are - way young generation. Would be interesting to see the "after"stats,  Some folks trying to think out of the box. (but in the box literally) Kinda like I don't get most of the memes.

I think the meal names are hilarious but should in no way have anything to do with mental health. Let’s see how long this lasts.

They can call the French toast sticks anything they want, long as they keep them on the menu. They're my favorite guilty fast food crave.

a week or so ago 

 

the circular selection that comes via the P.O.Carrier

 

had some fast food coupons.

 

McD , and Burger King.

 

I decided to try a Whopper ( or two )

 

the W tastes better , understanding the bar is low , than the BigMac

 

due to the CharBroil.

 

you can also add extra shrubbery is you like

 

Whopper w extra tomato  ( decent ) and pickles.

 

one thing about the Whopper there seems to be a lot of Bun.

Nope. I took one for the team when I tried the duck sandwich at Arby's. Someone else's turn in the barrel.
