    Angry Rant: What is the deal with Burger King?


    Ok, so last Sunday I was feeling 16 again and decided I wanted to get some BK. I remember the framebroiled (sp) taste, dam that was a great burger years ago! I could eat 3 whoppers! I've been doing pretty good eating clean, but I figured I needed a little break, so why not!

    So anyway, I get to BK and it was kind of dirty, but the menu looked almost the same, except for some chicken fries they added, so I figured ok I'm game for this... I put my order in, got my cup for my drink - not a wide variety so went with regular Coke (haven't had one in months) - and sat down waiting on my order.

    And then it hit me! I started looking around and most of the people in BK were obese females, probably size 48+ attempting to look good in size 36 pants, gut sticking out and all. On top of that, they were wearing skimpy little tops with flab sticking out from the sides, both under the arms and around the waist. I just wasn't ready for this, especially with the ones wearing the tiny little tops with the gut sticking out and HUGE navel exposed... I thought "sh!t my whopper better be good!"

    Well, I got my order, not only did they charge me extra for the jalapeno peppers but the whopper was beyond crap. I was dissolutioned (sp). I could not re-live my memories from 20 years ago! I even tried not eating the bun, but the meat was sh!t... I guess it was too much to ask for...

    Haha, the only thing I took with me after not finishing my meal was the bad breath and aftertaste of the onion. Brushing teeth and minty chewing gum were powerless against the BK onion breath.

    I started wondering why people eat BK. There are cheaper places with better food, why BK? Well, I got tired of thinking and I really don't care anymore. Maybe I'll try again in 20 years (if I'm still around) and see what happens.

    By the way, some of those girls were wearning pumps and all, like they were at BK having pre-party dinner or something... haha.

    The fast food joints just continually lower the quality of their food and reduce the size to increase their profit margin.

    I think one of the main reasons that people still eat there is the seductive advertising. I will give you an example.

    Usually twice a month we go to church on Sundays. After church we go with some friends and have a big meal, either someone will cook or we will go to a nice restaurant. Whichever one we do we eat a good bit, usually enough to keep us filled most of the day.

    Several weeks ago (it was during football season) we went to Chili's after church. I had an order of dry rub ribs w/ french fries, and a half of a grilled chicken sandwich. I left that place feeling fat and happy.

    Afterwards we went to my friends house and watched the game. Well, about two hours after being zoned in on the tv I found myself really hungry! Here I was being completely sedentary after eating a fantastic cheat meal, and I was starving to death. Then it hit me, it was all of the fast food commericals. I rarely watch anything on tv, and I am not accustomed to seeing all of the food porn commercials.

    I really think that the fast food industry knows what it is doing and that is why it spends hundreds of millions of dollars on television advertising.

    That and some people are too lazy to cook for themselves and their families.

    I love bk but did have one the other day with a soggy bun and fries.It's usually good though.In Tx they have a Tx double whopper with bacon and jalapenos(it's amazing)If i'm trying to eat healthy to lean up a little,i just look around fast food joints(can't beleive they call them restauraunts)and take note of how everyone is fat,then i walk right back out and eat some cold bland chicken/turkey/fish with some oatmeal,and feel great for it,yet sorry for the others,not really though,it's their own damn fault.

    It really depends which part of town you visit for your BK bro. Some Bks are really great, good service, quality food, others look like the burgers have been put through the washer (soggy and old) and the place looks like a horde of boy scouts came tramping through seconds before.

    Last time I went to Bk, some months ago, they gave me a soggy whopper that was cold (obviously a left over from earlier), and I left and went to the one down the road.

    Got a hot, freshly cooked whopper and great service.

    so yeah, so summarize, location, location ... location.

    Our BK is just a sh!thole haven for overly aggressive, nasty fats.. I refuse to go in there anymore after a security officer (the one they PAY JUST TO SIT IN THERE) kicked me and my friends out for and I quote, "eating far too long" a few years ago.

    You're right, it was probably the location I went to.

    Wow, if I'm paying for food there is no way I'd have some security dude kick me out - I'm a slow eater.

    The more I think about it the angrier I get for not satisfying my BK craving, and at the same time I'm thinking of brown rice to keep me focused on clean food...

    The fear of looking at flab sticking out of the sides will probably keep me away for a while. I have nothing against obese people, but the ones I saw at BK were under a completely different category, and it made me sad.

    fast food

    the meat is nasty.. so they load it up with salty ketchup and crappy pickles... then they load up the bun with high fructose corn syrup to give a cheap flavor that you will enjoy

    the chicken sandwiches arent much better but typically heavily fried in a salty batter to make your mouth water

    id rather eat dogfood. that doesnt mean i dont cheat.. but when i cheat i cook up a big ol steak and load up on other goodies

    Half? Sheeeeit. It takes me the good part of an hour to prepare and cook a steak dinner w/ sides.

    I get my double quarter pounder in (usually) under 2 minutes... with fries and a tasty beverage.

    But, the point stands that IF you are going to cheat AND have some time, doin' the home cooked thing is the way to go. If you don't have time, fast-food is very enticing.

    Depending on a person's diet and the cut of steak, it very well could be (remember, 'cheating' is relative).

    Really, it's all the trimmins (macaroni n cheese, caseroles, etc.) that are the bad part.

    I usually eat rice or oatmeal with mine and maybe some milk.My cheating,and my relatively leaness,would make most jealous,but i have to eat like crazy to grow,and can lose muscle pretty easily.Theirs always a downside.

    Wendy's is best up here, we don't have S & S, Arby's, Sonic, etc. BK has the best fries tho, and yeah, it depends on the location.

    Must agree that Chili's is fantastic for its new burgers!

    Man I don't know what it is with me and BK, but I go crazy for it every now and then. Fortunately, I resolve only to eat it on special cheat day occasions, but that DBL Whopper turns me into a salivating moron!

    It is from my experience however that fast food, despite sounding appealing from previous(younger) times, tastes awful once you really get yourself into a healthy diet/lifestyle. I remember when I came back from a training school this past summer, 6 weeks long, and I felt obligued to dine out with some nasty ol' junk food. Got a big mac from McDonalds, and threw it out after a few bites. Not that it was really nasty or anything, but just not impressive (and I was expecting to be awesome by drawing on previous experiences).
