Review: Burger King - Farmhouse King

Burger King's Farmhouse King features two quarter-pound flame-grilled beef patties, thick-cut bacon, two slices of American cheese, crispy onions, ketchup, creamy "signature sauce," and a fried egg on a toasted sesame seed bun.

I bought one for $6.19.

Like the other burgers that have come and gone in Burger King's King line, the Farmhouse King carries some serious heft to it. I was pretty full on half the burger.

Between the two beef patties, you get some serious meatiness with a decent level of moistness but not much in the way of char or flavor.

The egg was moist and I could actually taste some egg but appeared to be some sort of microwaved/reheated patty (understandable given that I went and got this for dinner). It was hard to tell though as it was covered up in a combination of ketchup and signature sauce.

The signature sauce offered a creamy combination of sweet and tangy which was further enhanced by the tangy and sweet ketchup. With the amount of sauce on mine, it made the sandwich a little too sweet and tangy and also covered up a lot of the other flavors.

The cheese was mild but nicely melted while the crispy onions were similar to the canned variety. The bacon contributed a crunch but lacked in flavor.

At the end of the day, the Farmhouse King is plenty filling with a generous amount of meat and cheese but the decision to go with two sweet and tangy sauces was a bit of a head-scratcher that I just didn't care for. They probably should have gone with a country gravy to fit the farmhouse theme.
