A Burger King Mis-Steak
Burger King (2020)
Recently, I've been trying to avoid McDonald's and Burger King. Part of it is because I'd like to try to lose weight, but mostly it's because I've been getting fast food hangovers the next morning. I used to be able to eat as much of it as I wanted, but now it makes me feel sluggish and lousy. However, I am a sucker for limited edition products.
The Steakhouse King is made from two beef patties topped with bacon, American cheese, crispy onions, mayo and steakhouse sauce on a sesame seed bun. Something about it didn't sit well with me. It wasn't bad, but the mixture of mayonnaise and steak sauce didn't do it for me, and the crispy onions weren't very crispy. They just added an element of greasiness to a burger that was already pretty heavy.
Food critiques aside, I can't be the only one who noticed that the sign for the Steakhouse King has a distinct 80's feel to it. It has the pale brown coloring of an old, partially faded Polaroid, and I'm pretty sure the font is the one they used in their advertisements when I was a kid. The coupon flyer uses the same font along with the retro Burger King logo.
