News: Burger King - 2013 Featured Summer Menu

Burger King's limited-time Summer BBQ menu features a new Rib Sandwich that immediately brings to mind McDonald's McRib.

Also notable for this year's summer menu are a slew of Oreo desserts and the return of several items from last year's menu, such as the Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich and Sweet Potato Fries.

The menu will be available nationwide starting May 21 at participating Burger King locations.

Here's a full listing of this year's Summer BBQ menu (with links for reviews where available):

The Rib Sandwich features a boneless rib patty with a sweet and tangy BBQ Sauce and butter pickles, on a toasted artisan-style bun. Unlike the McRib, it does not include onions and does not appear to be slathered in barbecue sauce.

  1. Holy crap that Oreo shake is unhealthy. 104 grams of sugar in a medium shake? Wow.

  2. That's actually on par with most other shakes from what I've seen. A typical serving of ice cream is usually one or two scoops. With a shake, you're getting much more than that and it's much easier to consume.
