Rating/comment: 3.5 wimpys (out of 5): No matter if it’s Smith & Wollensky or BK, the craving for a burger knows no difference. Most of us hard-working stiffs need a quickie lunch stop, so it’s essential to find the best available stop for the price. BK has been pumping its cheeseburger meals, ranking from the single, double or triple cheeseburger meals at $2.79, $2.89 and $2.99 respectively. Make sure to order by layers and not price. Otherwise there’s a good chance the order will get screwed up. If you’re real hungry, get the triple. We recommend the compromise double, a nice eat for the price. It’s definitely not S&W, but if 30 minutes is all you have it works. Forget all that “fast food is bad for you.” The burgers are fine. We like BK’s burger rolls, beverage variety and decent effort at fries. No fry compares to Fatburger, but the price and volume of BK stops, makes this more than satisfactory in a rush. We do wish for a retro 1976 Whopper, sold for 99 cents at the University of South Carolina.
