Burger King’s ‘Big King’ Burger – Is it Any Good?

Introduced in 1967 at a Pittsburgh McDonald’s, the Big Mac has become a staple of American dining, and the ever-continuous quest of the bigger and better.

You know the jingle: “Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.”

Burger King’s “Big King” isn’t exactly new, it was on the menu in select stores during the late 1990’s. This time around, though, Burger King reps say it’s for good.

Plainly put, this burger is almost the exact same burger put out by the guys with the golden arches. So, what’s the difference? It’s slightly bigger, 40 calories less (if you’re counting those, this is a serious plus), and the patties are fire grilled. Yes, it’s even got the “special sauce”. If you want to get into details, the onions are sliced on the Big King, as opposed to diced on the Big Mac. It matters to me, I’m a sliced onion kind of guy. It’s everything you love about the Big Mac, plus everything you love about Burger King’s burgers.

The Big King is priced at $3.69, while the average price of a Big Mac is $4.56. However, the Big King is good for the two burgers for $5 deal.

If you’re wondering if you should try the Big King, I’d say go for it. I had one today, and it surely won’t be my last.
