Flame-broiled burgers--especially the trademarked Whopper--are royalty at this popular fast-food chain. – In Short
Founded in 1954, this ultracasual eatery (often with a drive-through) made its name with hamburgers cooked over flames and finished with the customer's choice of toppings. The signature sandwich has always been the Whopper, a quarter-pound burger with tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, pickles and onions. The menu also features fish fillets and spicy chicken sandwiches, garden salads with fire-grilled shrimp and chicken, the breakfast "Croissan'wich," crispy onion rings and even veggie burgers.
Bad even for fast food – I don't know if BK burgers have, in general, declined drastically over the years or if it's just this particular store--it just seems when I used to do the occasional BK Whopper in NYC, it was always a taste treat. No more; for whatever reason, all the meats in BK foods are now flavorless. At least at other fast food places' their foods taste like something. Several years ago BK made the mistake of changing their french fries in an attempt to distance themselves from McD so I cannot even recommend their french fries--which don't even taste as good as cardboard. The restaurant is kept fairly clean for a fast food place though, usually there isn't a big waiting line, they get you your food fairly quicly. The only people I ever see patronizing this place are kids from the local schools and people who can't afford real burgers from Howard's or Darla's (both less than 1/2 block away); eating at this BK is better than starving but that's the best I can say.
