The Frankenburger: What Happens When Burger King, Wendy's and McDonald's Collide

Forget the Double Down or the McGangBang, the ultimate fast food burger has been found — the Frankenburger. And when I say “ultimate,” I literally mean this could be the final thing you ever eat.

According to the Village Voice’s detailed description of the Frankenburger, the main ingredients are a Burger King Whopper, a McDonald’s Big Mac and a double quarter-pounder with cheese from Wendy’s, who also supply the finishing touch: a handful of french fries.

But unlike the McGangBang, the Frankenburger is not just three burgers smashed together carelessly. With so many elements involved, care had to be taken to select the best aspects of each.

The Frankenburger bun and veggies come from the Whopper, the main condiment is the Big Mac Special Sauce, and the meat, cheese and fries are compliments of the Wendy’s double.

Here’s the Village Voice’s formula for the Frankenburger:

1 Whopper bun + Big Mac Special Sauce + 1 serving Whopper vegetables + 1 slice Wendy’s Half-Pound Double cheese + 2 Wendy’s Half-Pound Double patties + 1 handful Wendy’s fries = The Frankenburger

While the Voice took great pains to craft the Frankenburger, they either didn’t have the cajones to taste it or did taste it and it overwhelmed the senses to the point of being indescribable. So if anyone out there wants to give it a shot, feel free to send us an e-mail with your thoughts. I personally can’t stand the Special Sauce, so I’m tapping out now.
