I went to try the new $1 version of their Pork Rib Sandwich (which I previously reviewed….and loved). But as I walked through the door, there it was: The sign advertising the Big King. Yep, BK is taking a stab at McD’s flagship burger. I was absolutely powerless and resisting ordering it proved futile.
To start it was poorly made. Whoever was back there made it with absolute hatred and disdain for me and if I wanted that in a sandwich I would have made my own this morning before work. But everyone who eats fast food knows this happens more often than not, so whatever.
As far as taste, it had all the right ingredients: Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, onions, and pickles on a sesame seed bun. So why did it taste like open ass? The lettuce was yellow and wilted and there was twice as much of it than the 2 beef patties combined. The cheese was waxy and wasn’t completely melted and the onions and pickles just tasted off. They did manage to make Thousand Island dressing with no problem though. Congrats. I guess.
The whole experience left me wondering why they bothered. I guarantee that McD’s isn’t going to come out with a McWhammer any time soon to compete with the Whopper. So trust me when I say, when it comes to a Big Mac like sandwich, stick with the best and get the Big Carl from Carl’s Jr. It taste better, is bigger and just fandamntastic. The Big King gets 0 stars.
