For a limited time, participating Burger King locations will be offering a new combo featuring two cheeseburgers, small fries, and a small drink for $3.29.

What happened to the $4 Whopper Jr combo promotion? That sure went away fast! Wendy’s remains the only restaurant offering a $4 meal that actually contains a full serving of vegetables. And with Taco Bell currently featuring the $5 double crunchwrap meal, this offering from BK just looks… Very brown.
…a full serving of vegetables?…
Yes, that’s because one of Wendy’s 4 for $4 options is a Jr Bacon Cheeseburger.
I had this its a good deal.
aka ‘We’re desperate’ Combo
Nothing desperate about it, BK is doing very well. What is it they are desperate for? They’re very successful and profitable in spite of not making you happy lol.
Well, you’re on a website dedicated to discussing fast food, and most here don’t like BK. I imagine if you stear clear of fast food blogs, where it’s a topic of discussion, you won’t hear much about people’s disdain for BK.
I like this combo – reminds me of the old days when $2.99 could get you well fed in a fast food joint.
Too bad that BK is just terrible.
BK’s new chicken sandwich is great actually, but yeah, the rest of their stuff is still terrible.
Disagree – BK’s burgers have the best “grilled” flavor of any in fast food, IMHO.
They definitely have a weird artificial flavor to them, I wouldn’t call it the best of anything.
Exhibit A of awesomeness: the BBQ Bacon King.
So less than $1 per item is a pretty good deal.
Of course this means they’ll be keeping the little sandwich chute full of these, and if they don’t sell fast enough the cooks will just grab them off the chute and microwave them and toss them back through…. meaning scalding hot ketchup/mustard & pickle in a hard bun.
I always order my burgers plain. They make you a fresh one and it really doesn’t take any longer. No more microwaved hard buns.
Everytime I get fries at BK i feel like they forgot half the fries. Then I realize the delivery method is just poorly designed! The fries are fat and long and the fry box is short and skinny! Bah, just go to wendy’s and enjoy real fries.
Not poorly designed, it’s very well-designed and quite intentionally so, in order to keep profit margins up. A taller vessel would hold more product and reduce per-unit profit. BK is very smartly benefiting from implied sizing, meaning the customer may be used to getting a certain quantity of fries by size from other fast food joints, and they just assume ordering a medium at BK will be the same as a medium from McDs or whoever without really giving it any thought. But as to the length of the fries, that’s just anecdotal – they are no longer or shorter than anywhere else as a rule, the length of fry simply varies by the potatoes supply, and everyone gets their potatoes from the same suppliers.
I figured out the ultimate menu hack at Wendy’s last weekend, and will no longer get anything else from a Fast Food place(I don’t eat a lot of Fast Food to begin with).
Get the 4 for $4 combo with a Double Stack, and then order it “Large Sized” for an extra $1.19. This gives you a Double Stack, 4pc Nuggets, a Large Fries and a Large Drink for $5.29. I had stopped going to Wendy’s because it was impossible to get out of there full for less than $8 or $9. However, this is definitely a full meal for $5.29.
This is not a “hack” at all, let alone the “ultimate hack”. What you described is simply ordering from the menu exactly as they intend for you to…. pretty much the opposite of a “hack”.
If more fries really makes it “ultimate” to you.
If another buck or so could make those large fries into those “bacon ranch” fries, with all the white cheese, then yeah, nearly Ultimate 🙂
Well I finally got around to ordering this “deal” for lunch. Everything was of fine quality, but the cheeseburgers were TINY. Like so small once unwrapped that I looked around to see if it was some kind of joke.
And what made it even more funny was 2 guys seated behind me were having a discussion about how big Whoppers used to be LOL
I just had the $3.29 meal and its actually pretty good when you go during the Lunch or busy hours that way the burgers are hot and the fries are also hot. If you go during the slow time the burgers will be warm or cold and the fries will be sitting their for a while and will taste lame so its only good during peak hours. Its a good price point. They don’t have it posted anywhere so you just have to ask for the $3.29 meal.
