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.

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.

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.

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.
For the most part, when ordering a meal from a fast food joint one usually expects to receive a bag full of hot items. That apparently wasn’t the case for an Iowa woman who allegedly threw chicken nuggets and fries at the restaurant’s manager because they were cold. [More]
There’s a limited pool of people who want to eat breakfast for every meal of the day, and diners and family restaurants have been preparing for a world where McDonald’s serves its breakfast menu all day. What about other fast-food outlets, though? At least one Burger King in New Jersey has decided to hop on the bandwagon and offer all-day breakfast. [More]
A North Carolina woman certainly didn’t get a recent Burger King breakfast “her way”: instead of a fresh sausage croissant, she claims she was given a moldy sandwich. [More]
For a while, it looks like this might be the Summer of Pulled Pork. Or like pulled pork would be the new bacon. There would be some very headline-friendly thing that would happen with pulled pork.

Yes, fries. [More]
