Burger King's Texas BBQ Whopper is a limited-time menu item that's part of BK's BBQ Summer menu. It's slightly different take on BK's iconic Whopper and comes with a quarter pound beef patty, American cheese, jalapeño slices, red onions, tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, and Bull’s-Eye Texas Style BBQ sauce on a sesame seed bun.

I picked one up for $3.99.

The Texas BBQ Whopper is a Whopper with cheese but with spicy jalapenos and a light, tangy, slightly sweet barbecue sauce instead of ketchup, pickles, and mayo. And that's pretty much how it tastes like. I wished they little more with it. Like make it more of a barbecue bacon burger by throwing in bacon and onion rings.

I actually prefer my Whoppers without the American cheese for some reason. I think it's because the Whopper patty is so thin that the cheese has a tendency to overpower the beef.

The jalapenos weren't that spicy and I was expecting more heat. I'd put it at mild to medium-mild in terms of burn. The lettuce and tomatoes feel out of place in a barbecue burger and the meat to veggie ratio was off.

The Texas BBQ Whopper seems a bit half-baked (half-grilled?) to me. If it's going to be a BBQ burger, I think less would have been more here. Overall, I'd rather have the standard Whopper this summer.
