Burger King is an American fast food restaurant selling its famous Whopper along with fries, milkshakes and ice cream. As with all these restaurants for a better word they have their beginnings in the 1950's ice cream and burger parlours in the states, in that premise they would be enjoyable to visit but the evolution to fast food outlet isn't one for the better.
Burger King is endemic through the UK, just like its competitor MacDonalds they are everywhere especially in road side services where the hungry motorist can get his whopper with fries. The outlets are distinctive with the bright yellow sign, blue border and the tendency to have a crown displayed everywhere. They sell burgers, fries and there most famous product is the whopper. Burger king try to give you the impression that their burgers are flame grilled, giving the impression of summer barbecues, grilling rather than frying and a healthier option than other burger bars. The burger comes with scorch marks as though its come fresh from the grill, hmm yeah right. The Whopper is a huge burger and a whopper meal with fries and coke is a belly buster for around £6.
Burger King fries tend to be very salty and the burgers high in fat, they have very sweet buns as well in my opinion. Each whopper comes in at around 500 calories which is approximately a quarter of the RDA for an adult. Thats just the burger, along with the fries and coke we are approaching a 1000 calories, and this is for a meal which some people consider a snack or nibble as they are going along.
Burger king is ok, the restaurants tend to be clean and the food is hot but the calories and saturated fats mean we should avoid eating at one of these restaurants.
Saying that though there coffee is loads better than MacDonalds, so I'll give it 2 stars because they can't as far as aware slip calories into a black coffee.
Summary: Bad for you and you know it.
