I haven't felt like a King going in lately.

For a while, I loved Burger King but not I'm feeling slighted a bit. 

Burger King has always been seen as the number 2 next to McDonalds as far as major burger chains.  The burgers are better quality and the chain's motto of "Your way right away" I've only seen as somewhat true.  The service and politeness of the staff has never been in question but WAITING for the food at the last couple of Burger King's I've been to, not to mention the clenliness of the dining areas have been in question.  Some are better then others but lately some of the ones I've been going to are scummy and could use a nice mopping through.

The fries are okay, but again much like McDonalds after tasting much higher echelon of similar faire, they are not as great as I remember them.

The Stacker sandwiches are a delight to be sure, going as high as four patties and covered with cheese, bacon and a tangy sauce.  The Whoppers are nice big patties but I have to question any signature sandwich that doesn't come with chesse and I hate to pay extra for cheese.  Rodeo Burgers are nice sandwiches that have onion rings and BBQ sauce.  The shakes aren't bad but I've had better.

The food may not be bad and the fries may not be as great as I remember them but the speed of food being prepared when it used to be so great is something lacking.  I hope Burger King can shape itself up in that regard and return to greatness and feel royal again.

Some observations I have made regarding cleanliness is that in most of the BKs near me, they have self-serve beverage dispensers. There is usually a flood of beverages all over and it is fairly disgusting to dispense your own drink while avoiding the sticky mess. None of the McD's near me allow you to dispense your own drinks so this is not an issue.

Nice tasty burgers at times. Prices can be scary though. Hershey Sundae Pies and the Stacker. BK Onion RIngs are great since I don't like onion rings.

Hunger pangs are what made me do it. I shouldn't have done it, but I did it. Why did I do it? Because I wanted something cheap, fast and, yes, good. I wanted to be in and out. I wanted to eat my food and be back to work. I'm American. This is what American's do. We eat in a rush. Why? Because we're entitled to fast, cheap, good and right. For $5 bucks, I have at least that much coming to me.      I go to Burger King.      The drive thru is loaded with cars. …

One of the few fast food resturants whose motto is that we can actually have it our way. They could change their name to Build-A-Burger.
