Review: Burger King - Rodeo Cheeseburger

Burger King's Rodeo Cheeseburger used to be available nationally, but is now only available in some regions as part of the BK Value menu. Similar but smaller than Carl's Jr's Western Cheeseburger, the Rodeo Cheeseburger takes your basic junior-sized cheeseburger and uses barbecue sauce (used to be Bull's-Eye but is now Sweet Baby Ray's) and onion rings instead of the normal pickles, ketchup, and mustard.

In my area, it costs $1.49.

I liked junior-sized burgers; they whet my appetite without stuffing my tummy. That being said, a fair set of people will need at least two Rodeo Cheeseburgers to achieve fullness.
On this occasion, my onion rings were a little soft and slightly soggy (it tends to vary though). Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce makes the burger; it's sweet, not too vinegary, and has a bit of a kick. Good stuff.
Beyond that, it's just your basic flame-broiled patty, soft sesame bun, and melted slice of American. It's fairly simple and quite enjoyable overall.

  1. I tried ordering one of these a few months ago "off the menu" since it wasn't anywhere to be seen on their board (in SC). Drive-thru lady was clueless so I let it alone.

    (To be honest, I can't remember if I saw it on the board or not. I kind of believe I saw it on the menu somewhere that day, but to be fair I'll just say I didn't see it).

  2. Hm, I'm not sure which areas carry it and which don't, but they're on the menu in the Los Angeles area.

  3. I doubt you're alone in this. But here's a question: Would it be better with bacon?!

  6. This is my favorite menu item at BK. Haven't had one in forever, although I'm pretty sure it's still on the menu in my area. I remember it was gone for a while and then it came back. While it was off the menu, I'd create my own... ordering a plain cheeseburger... just beef/cheese... and a side of onion rings... and I'd apply my own bbq sauce. Desperation yes.

  7. I had a buddy who used to make this himself when they discontinued it in our area. Plain cheeseburger, small side of o-rings, side of BBQ. I'd even try it with their "zesty" sauce.

  8. If you're going to criticize, at least use proper grammar. It's "their food", not "there food".

    For the record, I'm skinny and I love fast food. It's called moderation and exercise. A good metabolism doesn't hurt either.
