Review: Burger King - Big King XL

Burger King's Big King XL features two flame-grilled Whopper beef patties (a little over a 1/2 lb of beef before cooking), American cheese, sliced onion, pickles, lettuce, and special Stacker sauce on a toasted sesame seed bun.

This hefty burger carried a similarly hefty price at $6.99.

Like the Whopper and the rest of the King burger line, the Big King XL is pretty wide as far as fast food burger goes.

The beef was relatively moist and there was plenty of it. Unfortunately, despite the flame-grilling, there wasn't much of a crust or char to it. The cheese was nicely melted and added the requisite creaminess.

The onion provided a more substantial bite and crunch than you get with a Big Mac. The lettuce added a slight crispness, while the pickles contributed some sweet tanginess and a slightly different crunch. Between the three, there were a fair variance of flavor and texture.

The special Stacker sauce was fairly similar to Big Mac sauce but seemed slightly sweeter and not as creamy.

Taken altogether, Burger King's Big King XL does a pretty good job of presenting a better, bigger version of the Big Mac and the Grand Mac as well. However, it's quite pricey for a fast food burger and Carl's Jr.'s Big Carl still does it better on account of a better charbroiled quality.
