    You mean heart attack king.

  2. John W says:

    The description reminds me of a BK Stacker, except with larger beef patties and with mayo rather than the so-called Stacker Sauce (also known as 1000-Island dressing). Count me in.

    • Brian says:

      Had it the other day and thought it was good. The guy making my burger didn’t rush it and it was put together nicely. But yea it reminded with a lot of the stacker.

    so uh it’s a double bacon cheeseburger?

    • Bubbsy says:

      Yes, the sandwich isn’t literally a monarch that rules over the land of bacon. And if it helps your confusion: a “Baconator” is a bacon double cheeseburger, a “Whopper” is a hamburger with toppings, a “Big Fish” is a fish sandwich, a “McFlurry” is ice cream with toppings mixed in. For branding/simplification purposes sometimes restaurants will trademark a proprietary name that isn’t simply a description of what the item is.

    I am not a BK fan, however I had this last week in Huntsville, AL. It was shockingly good. The bacon is very thick and different from the breakfast bacon they serve. It was $5.49 for the burger alone. I don’t know if I was lucky, but my burger had about 9 pieces of bacon on it. The bacon was large enough to hang out the length of the burger. It was pretty messy to eat. I was shocked it was a BK product. It was very good. IMO

    Ketchup and mayo – pretty much a copy of Wendy’s Baconator, but that’s no bad thing.

  6. Dustin Bumgarner says:

    Wendy’s called… they want their Baconator back! Lol way to be original BK! The only differences are the type of burger patty, and the sesame seed bun.

    • Peter says:

      Yet that is enough. BK hamburger patties are quite different in taste and texture than Wendy’s.

    • Dan says:

      It’s BK’s way. They also made a Big King which was their ripped off version of a Big Mac. BK loves ripping off the competition and switching out for their flame grilled.

      • Sascha says:

        Well, first off, any place that wants to call themselves a burger restaurant should have a simple bacon double on the menu. And why are we talking about the Baconator as if Wendy’s invented something here? I’m quite sure the Baconzilla from Rally’s/Checkers came before the Baconator, and there’s no doubt that Hardee’s Monster Burger preceded them all.

  7. Jon says:

    Seems like BK is taking out the produce (which has long been the worst part of any BK sandwich I can remember) and just letting the meat shine on its own. I might have to get this. Yeah, it’s a Baconator clone, but the Wendy’s in my town closed last year so this may be a nice substitution.

  8. Steven says:

    Hearty portion of bacon? Had two half slices, maybe three. Not worth it.

    • Stilletkniv says:

      3 half-slices of thick-cut bacon is a substantial burger topping. It is after all a topping, not the protein base. The burger is 2 quarter lb patties dude.

  9. Joe Kirkpatrick says:

    Picture looks good – actual product will look and taste crappy. It always is. No thanks.

  10. Mark says:

    It’s good but it’s expensive (combo was around $9) and it’s just plain too big. They need to copy wendy’s again with son of baconator and make a whopper junior version of this.

  11. Sascha says:

    So, having had the Baconzilla within the last month, I decided to also have the Baconator and Bacon King. Don’t worry, not at the same time, about 3 days apart. Turns out, I like the King the best of the three, and it wasn’t that close. I really thought at like the Baconzilla the best, but it didn’t turn out that way. I felt BK had the best bacon, and it also went the best with BK meat, even if Wendy’s felt a little beefier.
