Review: Burger King - Extra Long Cheeseburger

Burger King's Extra Long Cheeseburger features two beef patties, onions, lettuce, two slices of American cheese, ketchup, mayo on a sesame seed hoagie bun.

I bought two for $5 (it's priced at $3.69 for one).

If the components seem a little familiar, it's because the Extra Long Cheeseburger is essentially two Whopper Jr.'s with cheese (but without tomato) on a long bun (from the Original Chicken Sandwich) rather than two separate buns.

For the most part, I got the classic Whopper taste with the tangy ketchup-mayo combo and the sharp bite of fresh onions.

Unfortunately, the beef patties get lost in the shuffle. They're pretty small and the hoagie bun felt thicker than Burger King's regular burger bun. Throw in a regular slice of American cheese on each patty and there's very little in the way of beefiness going on. It felt a little like eating a cheese sandwich with Whopper-style condiments.

Overall, I didn't care much for Burger King's Extra Long Cheeseburger due to a decided lack of burger patties. Yes, it cheaper than buying a Whopper with cheese or two Whopper Jr.'s with cheese but I'd still choose both options over it. The name's also a little weird as it makes one think that the sandwich will have the same ingredients as Burger King's Cheeseburger rather than what comes on a Whopper.
