Chicken and Waffle Sandwich from Burger King

Burger King is offering a Chicken and Waffle Sandwich at select locations and GrubGrade reader Eddie (@EFQZ on Twitter) tried it this morning in Muncy, PA.  Priced at $2.29 for the sandwich alone, Eddie says what we’re all probably expecting…  “looks and tastes bad”.  Waffles as bread and a breaded chicken patty plus Eddie topped it off with “Zesty Sauce” (dipping sauce for the Onion Rings).  I have nothing against chicken and waffles… in fact I love it… but this sandwich is scary.  Popeyes just needs to step up and put some Chicken Waffle Tenders in between toasted waffles and they’ll have a hit.

    UGH! I hope this doesn’t make it in all Burger King locations. Burger King needs to come up with better ideas. Maybe a breakfast waffle sandwich instead of chicken waffle sandwich.

  2. Helldog says:

    Why on earth would BK half-ass a potential game changer? It boggles the mind.

  3. Alex K. says:

    Any potential it had to be good was flushed down the toilet when I read that they put the zesty sauce on it. Who thought that would be a good idea?

    • Axel says:

      They didn’t put the Zesty sauce on. It was done by the guy himself.

    • Sascha says:

      Pretty sure that was customer thing, not done through BK. Sounded pretty good to me though, better than the rest of that awful concoction.

    • Andre says:

      The guy who took the picture put the zesty sauce on it. I was going to comment that that may be the sloppiest sauce application I’ve ever seen.

    • JF says:

      Reading the comment, it was Eddie that added it to the sandwich, not included with it. Regardless, a sandwich like this has so much potential but looks like another BK fail. It appears it is just 2 waffles and their sad chicken patty. No hint of anything else. I’d expect at the very least there would be some syrup on it.

      Hopefully Popeye’s will give this a shot and do it right.

    • Joe Cool says:

      By “they”, you mean the reviewer and not BK right?

  4. BJ says:

    Probably the worst thing they ever came up with. Dry, bland, and tiny. I actually wanted to go back and slap the cashier in the face for serving me this sad little sandwich…

  5. Cory says:

    I don’t order chicken and waffles too much because it usually involves bones. If I eat fried chicken, it is tenders or patties; I just don’t like bones. This creation from BK satisfies that preference, obviously, but from this picture, it just looks plain sloppy, which alone makes it unappetizing to me.

    What I like to do every so often is stack Eggo waffles alternating with chicken patties. Drench it with Aunt Jemima, and eat with a fork. It’s neat and good.

    And I agree, don’t need the zesty sauce.

  6. Bubbsy says:

    This may at least a little tasty drenched in syrup, I’ve made chicken and waffles with a fried boneless breast before and it was good (yes I know this is a patty not a breast)…. I agree with Alex K – WHY on earth would you put zesty sauce on this? That makes no sense at all.
    I would think the people repulsed by this may have never had chicken and waffles before (with butter and syrup)?

  7. Helldog says:

    @AlexK. – reading comprehension solves your biggest problems: “…plus Eddie topped it off with “Zesty Sauce.” BK didn’t do it, Eddie did.

    • Sascha says:

      Let that be a lesson to you, Alex. Comprehend what you read, or six of us will tell you in increasing levels of hostility that you screwed up. Sorry.

  8. NateS says:

    This looks awful. Im asumming the waffle probably comes frozen. And that patty just looks densely saturated in grease.. FAIL PASS GTFO BK

  9. Jon L says:

    This is the darkest timeline…

  10. BigBelly says:

    I think a spicy syrup is severed on C&W in some parts of the country, possibly what he was going for. That sandwich looks like you’d be reaching for a drink after every bite with nothing on it, yuk

    Chicken and Waffles, when done right, should be topped with hot sauce and maple syrup. Popeyes came pretty close with their waffle tenders the one time I went that they actually had the maple dipping sauce in stock.
