Burger King’s Big King XXL – Too Damn Much Meat

I’ve seen the Big King advertised around the world.  It’s basically Burger King’s take on the Big Mac.  And BK’s XXL burgers are double-whopper-patty sandwiches that are quite a mouthful.  Put them together, as I did recently in Dubai, and you end up with the Big King XXL.

On paper, what’s not to like?  All the flame-broiled goodness Burger King is known for, plus a tasty thousand island-like sauce – times two.  But as any long-time reader knows, there is an acceptable meat-to-condiment ratio and this sucker blows that ratio out of the water.  My tastes tend toward a 0.8:1 ratio, meaning 20% more condiment than meat.  At BK, because the meat is generally tasty, I might bump that up to an even 1:1.  But I never enjoy sandwiches where the meat overwhelms the rest of the burger, which is what is happening here.

My solution?  Remove one of the patties.  Ahh.  There.  Now we have a Whopper-sized sandwich with toppings in appropriate proportion.  The bottom line: the XXL is tasty but one X too many.
