Review: Burger King - Bacon Cheeseburger Deluxe

Burger King's Bacon Cheeseburger Deluxe is the latest add to their value menu and features a flame-grilled beef patty with tomatoes, lettuce, bacon, pickles, onions, ketchup, mustard, and American cheese on a toasted sesame bun.

I bought one for $1.49.

This was kinda like a cross between Burger King's cheeseburger and Whopper Jr. It's got a little bit of everything, which is nice if a little busy.

The problem was there was too much ketchup and mustard to really get a good taste of anything. Combined with the crunchy pickle slices, it was all just very tangy and salty.

The worse part was I could barely taste the bacon! Granted, Burger King's bacon is a little light on flavor but what's there is decent and it was mostly wasted here. Also, the bacon wasn't crunchy or even crispy.

The lettuce and tomatoes were fairly fresh and of good quality but I couldn't really taste much of them. I think there was only one, maybe two, onion slivers.

The cheese was nicely melted and lent a generic creaminess that was mostly covered up with sauce.

The beef patty didn't quite reach the edges but had a nice thickness for a value-price burger. It didn't have the char I wanted for being "fire-grilled."
Overall, I think the Bacon Cheeseburger Deluxe might have been pretty good without the excessive amount of ketchup and mustard (or with mayo instead) as it contains an otherwise familiar combination of ingredients and none of them were lacking. It's the value burger to get if you're torn between a regular Cheeseburger and a Whopper Jr.
