Let's face it, nearly everyone loves a burger every now and then. And trying to avoid fast food in modern times is like trying to avoid the car, it's almost impossible. For me, with a daily commute, and burger king almost everywhere I go it is hard to avoid the site of their outlets, let alone that fantastic smell of fatty burgers drifting all over the street.
One of the best things with burger king is the wide range of options on the menu, from burgers, chicken nuggets, snacks, chips, milkshakes to name but a few. And there are options to suit everyone's budget, from 99p up to £7 for the premium meal deals. Combined with the "have it your way" option, of adding or removing ingredients from the burgers you choose, there truely is something for everyone.
In fact I love the fact I can remove the lettuce from the burger when I don't feel like it, add extra gurkins, cheese, and more meat and so on! Or that I can have a super sized meal deal on those one off occasions where I feel I could eat a horse so to speak.
The burger king outlets are all over the country, you can find them in the most central or remote of locations (town centres to motorway stops). The simplicity of their menus, with clear pricing structures, consistent quality of food across outlets makes them an ideal place for everyone, regardless of budget, hunger, or location. The staff are often very friends, show a high level of courtesy for a fast food outlet and are in most cases very organised.
A word of warning however! I would strongly recommend checking the nutritional details on the burger king website. Some meal deals combined with a dessert and non-diet based fizzy drink can come close to 1500 KCAL (75% of GDA for a 2000kcal diet). Kcals per a pound though, you would struggle to find such a good deal elsewhere! But for the diet conscious, be aware of the nutritional details, to aid you in making a better choice.
Finally for all the veggies out there, fear not there are fish and vegetable burgers for you.
Summary: Convenient, consistent quality, customise your food and a meal to suit everyone's budget
