New Double Quarter Pound King from Burger King

The latest from Burger King is the new Double Quarter Pound King.  BK takes a shot at McDonald’s in the press release:

We’d like to offer our deepest condolences to all the flat-top fried double quarter pound burgers out there. We’re flame grilling the competition.  Flat-top fried double quarter pound burgers ruled the game for a long and meaty time, but now begins a new generation of double quarter pound burgers. Flame-grilled double quarter pound burgers, fit to wear the crown.

The Double Quarter Pound King features more than 1/2 pound of flame-grilled, 100% beef and is topped with American cheese, sliced onions, pickles, and ketchup on a toasted, sesame seed bun.  The new burger comes with a recommended price of $5.39.  Nutrition-wise, you’re looking at 900 calories, 54 grams of fat, 25 grams of saturated fat, 1740 milligrams of sodium, 50 grams of carbs, 2 grams of fiber, 11 grams of sugar, and 56 grams of protein.

    So, it’s a Double Whopper with BK’s version of the Big Mac Sauce. For that price, it’s not too bad…if I am really hungry this weekend, I will give it a try. Burger King food quality has really improved, I liked their new Crispy Chicken Sandwich too.

      What on earth makes you think this has a special sauce on it?

      • Johnnyboy says:

        I thought it was their bigger version of the BIG KING. I guess they don’t have those anymore. LOL!

      • MP says:

        …. also, it’s not like a Double Whopper lol. I love this guy’s comments: “So this is basically a Chicken Tendercrisp, except no lettuce, no tomato, and 2 quarter pound burger patties instead of a chicken filet.”

    • DAVO ARMANIAN says:

      Fast food once a month huh JohnnyBoy?

      • JohnnyBoy says:

        Well I have a new job where travel is many miles one way. So more than once a month now just to get hot food on the way to work. More like 5 times a week. But I still look like Sylvester Stalling like from Rocky III.

    So basically add cheese to a double whopper and take off the tomato and lettuce. Is there anything else going on here other then the mcdonalds reference? Is it made fresh? Just asking for a friend.

    Flat-top is my enemy!

  4. Britney says:

    I generally prefer McDonald’s, but I might give this a try.

  5. CC says:

    So..this is just a double whopper with a few condiments swapped out?

    Which you could already do for free.

    They always advertise with mustard, but its never on the burgers here in NYC.

    How something can be 900 calories and have no taste at all baffles me.

  8. Garrett Wroblewski says:

    It is surprisingly good, like a giant double cheeseburger with onions (which I hate and have removed). It is priced stupid-high but it is a lot of meat and filling

  9. Russ says:

    How is this any different than a double whopper with cheese?

  10. Alex says:

    Well, I can’t believe BK Marketing finally added to the menu something that resembles real food and not out of “Stunt Food Casting”…

    I’m talking about their Frankenstoneion Food Labatory that brought the world the Angry Whopper, Chicken strips resembling french fries, and that Cheetos Mac’n-cheese Mashup.

    Arguably the absolute worst World Wide Fast Food Restaurant, I hope they stick to making their core product taste better with Fresh Ingredients instead of creating more mashup products. McDonalds is crap too, but at least they try to create a decent product.
