Burger King already has one entry in the ongoing fast food meal-deal war that focuses on one person — a 5 for $4 menu that includes a bacon cheeseburger, small fries, chicken nuggets, beverage, and a chocolate chip cookie — but that apparently isn’t enough to keep up with the competition. And so, the company has launched a 2 for $10 deal. But with two entire meals included in this bundle, who exactly is the company courting? [More]
Burger King’s new Grilled Dogs are on the permanent menu in both plain and chili dog form, but Burger King is testing something new: people in some markets have spotted a Whopper Dog on the menu. That’s a fast food mashup that sounds surprisingly edible. If you spot one in the wild or get a chance to try one out, let us know! [More]
Have you ordered Burger King’s chicken fries and wished that they could be rounder? No, neither has anyone else, but the fast food chain is putting Chicken Fries Rings on the menu anyway as a limited-time item and a new variation on their Chicken Fries franchise. There have been flavor variations, including Fiery, Jalapeno, and Buffalo fries, but this marks the chain’s first variation on shape in the Chicken Fries line. [More]
All this time that Burger King has had commercials featuring their silent, plastic-headed King mascot, have you ever wondered what the King might have to say if he did more than stare at people with his mouth frozen open? The King, it turns out, is fluent in American Sign Language, and just hasn’t had anyone to talk to in his previous ad appearances. Maybe. Friday, however, is National ASL Day, and the King wants to have a new sign for “Whopper” ready for the occasion. [More]
Back in February prank callers preyed on fast food restaurants like Jack in the Box, Burger King, and Wendy’s, instructing workers to break every window and door or face certain disaster. The prank hit again in Minnesota over the weekend, when employees of a Burger King smashed the store’s windows, following directions from what they thought was a fire department official. [More]
Usually the word “hot” in a fast food discussion pertains to how a customer wants their order to come out, but in the case of a customer whose truck caught fire while he was waiting in the Burger King drive-thru, well, it had more to do with actual flames. [More]
Contrary to what you may have believed your entire life, it turns out that the Hamburglar is not a character limited solely to pilfering beef patties from McDonald’s. How else might one explain how 33 cases of Burger King Whoppers went missing from the back of a truck recently? [More]
Call us cynical, but we’re pretty sure that Burger King’s new Grilled Dogs training videos were never intended as an “internal use only” tool to train employees on how to top and sell the chain’s new grilled hot dogs. The company claims that once word got out that the videos existed, the public clamored to see them. It’s believable that people wanted to see the videos, but maybe less believable that this wasn’t their plan all along. [More]
From time to time a would-be robber gets the idea that the best way to get away with a bunch of cash is to steal from a place they know inside and out, like their current or former employer. A Pennsylvania Burger King employee apparently took that idea and made it her own by cooking up a plan to get someone else to rob the restaurant where she worked. [More]
Burger King customers in the San Luis Obispo, CA area were likely concerned when they showed up yesterday to find about a dozen of a restaurant’s window’s smashed out overnight. But this wasn’t an act of random vandalism, it was done on purpose by Burger King employees after they received a warning phone call that turned out to be a prank. [More]
It’s frustrating when you clip or save a coupon, then forget to use it. What you may not realize, though, is that some stores and restaurants will allow you to use coupons after the expiration date. The policy may vary according to location or even the employee’s mood, but you don’t always have to let your couponing go to waste. [More]
We know it can be frustrating to wait for your food to be cooked, bagged, and passed to your eagerly awaiting hands, but it is never okay to throw a fit — or punches — when you grow impatient in the fast food drive-thru line. Police in Florida say two men who were ticked off at how long their Burger King order was taking left their vehicle and took their beef into the restaurant. [More]
In an effort to attract new customers and bring old ones back, fast-food restaurants are bringing back value menus. Don’t call them dollar menus, though, even when the items do cost a dollar each. Or, in the case of a new value meal deal from Burger King, 80¢ each. [More]
Family Suing Burger King After Woman Suffers Seizure While Trapped In Burger King Bathroom, Later Dies
The family of a New York City woman who died after being trapped in a Burger King bathroom is now suing the fast food chain, claiming that her death could’ve been prevented if restaurant employees had had a way to circumvent the door’s lock.
Burger King doesn’t want you to go to McDonald’s, but because it can’t hire employees to fling themselves in front of customers trying to walk through the rival’s doors, it’s got to use what it already has in its arsenal. People love a good deal, so Burger King is bringing back a popular deal: 10 chicken nuggets for $1.49… again.
