Review: Burger King - French Fry Burger

Burger King's French Fry Burger is their latest value menu addition and features four French fries (mine had five), mayo, ketchup, lettuce, and a beef patty on a sesame seeded bun.

At my local Burger King, the Fry Burger replaced the BK Bacon Burger and carries the same $1 price tag.

Is it me or has Burger King's value burger patty gotten smaller? I remember they used to be a good deal bigger than McDonald's Hamburger and now they seem close to the same size. With the small patty size, I didn't get much in the way of flame-grilled char or beef flavor.

What I did get was the familiar ketchup and mayo combination of a Whopper minus the tomatoes and onions, which I didn't miss too much since they would have made the beef patty seem that much smaller.

The French fries didn't add all too much. Just a vague extra starchiness to the burger. I thought I'd pick up on the salt of the fries, but I didn't. I would guess if I had dined in instead of getting it to-go, the Fries might have been crunchy, but I didn't and they weren't.

Overall, the French fries weren't so much showcased in Burger King's French Fry Burger so much as the rather standard condiments were. Still, it was decent enough and close enough to the Whopper Jr. for a few coins less (like a poor man's Whopper Jr.).

  1. I also found it to be similar to the Whopper Jr. and didn't miss the tomatoes or onions. The price was much better than how high prices of Whopper Jr's have been in recent years.. I think they're still $1.29 now, but they were $1.79 a couple years ago at my local BK, so close to $2 with our 10% local sales tax.


    My experience in terms of the addition of fries and small patty was a little different though. Maybe I just didn't think of the size of the patty, but I definitely noticed the fries. I usually only put a few fries on a small burger when I choose to do that, so it was similar to what I'm used to. BK is the closest of the major chains to my house, and I made sure to eat the burger right when I get home.. I was afraid it would die pretty fast.. so for me overall it was a pretty decent value menu sandwich. I kind of wish In-N-Out would do this! I don't love their fries but they seem to go well in their burgers when I've tried that in the past.

  2. Aww, these replace the BK bacon burger? Those were a regular for me, the few times I went to BK. The patties are tiny, but I considered it more of a cheap bacon sandwich.

  3. If these are supposed to replace the bacon burger, then my store never got that memo >_>

  4. It only replaced the BK Bacon Burger at my local BK. I'm not sure if that's true system-wide. The Fry Burger is a limited-time item so it's probable they bring the BK Bacon back at my local BK after its gone. Or maybe they'll be something new.

  5. Rockport Texas Burger King 361-790-5557 # 17558 is now offering this but after my experience, I will no longer eat at this location until staff is changed. Just arrived after menu change. 10:35 ordered a whopper jr. w/cheese and
    4 pc nuggets. Once at window set for another 19 mins. Very slow
    service. Sandwich raw partially frozen meat patty, no mayo or cheese.
    This is the 3rd time my meat was bloody/raw in the last 2-3 weeks.
