Burger King's New York Pizza Burger

I have a feeling this will be another BK fail.



New York City Burger King lovers should schedule an appointment with their cardiologist, because the BK Whopper Bar has arrived in Times Square.

The restaurant's been flame broiling burgers for about two weeks, and on Tuesday, members of the press were invited to try some of the King's latest creations.

The most New York-centric of all the recently concocted burgers isn't available for public consumption yet. The New York Pizza Burger is slated to appear next month.

But the folks at Burger King were kind enough to let media get a sneak peak of the massive, meat, cheese and marinara monster.

Four quarter-pound Whopper patties lay on top of a nine-and-a-half inch sesame seed bun. The burgers are then covered in pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, marinara and Tuscan pesto sauce.

The Burger King folks made sure to emphasize that this burger is meant to be shared. My hat's off to the lonely soul who takes this thing on by themselves.

The mozzarella and marinara go perfectly well with the burger, but the pesto sauce has an artificial aftertaste and doesn't fit with the rest of the burger. Diners can always ask for a pizza burger sans pesto if they prefer.

The most enjoyable amalgamation of meat and cheese was the BK Black and Bleu Steakhouse XT. If you can manage to remember its insanely long name, the Black and Bleu will reward you with tangy bleu cheese crumbles, crispy bacon and a blackened Cajun sauce.

The Meat Beast Whopper was exactly that. Coming in at around 1,250 calories, the Beast piles pepperoni and bacon on top of a quarter-pound beef patty. It's probably too much meat, even for an animal flesh fanatic.

The Whopper Bar also boasts a tasty California Whopper, which swaps ketchup for guacamole. It is reportedly the most popular of the new Whopper clan.

The Burger King team excitedly told me that, once the liquor license arrives, beer will be a-flowin'.

So, if you want it "your way" and that way almost invariably involves eating something with parents, stop by the new BK. It's at 561 Fashion Ave in a not-so-obnoxious section of Times Square.

The reason you haven't eaten at Burger King in years is because you knew that one day they would unveil the New York Pizza Burger?

Re: Burger King's New York Pizza Burger

This is also the reason I haven't eaten at a Taco Bell in years.

Re: Burger King's New York Pizza Burger

I like pizza burgers, at least I like the kind you can get at a roadside ice cream stand, but this thing just sounds gross. Of course, BK can't even make french fries right, so I can't expect this to be too much.

If someone can pick one of these up for me, I will gladly paypal for the cost of the burger, shipping, and a little extra for your time and effort. Thanks.

Re: Burger King's New York Pizza Burger

Do some of you not know how to read?

This is only at the BK Burger Bar in New York, just like the Black and Bleu. It's a tourist destination with insane burgers on the menu, nothing more. Even if it does "fail" (Which simply means that they'll take it off the menu and introduce another tourist-trap burger), it means absolutely nothing. And none of this is in any way indicative of the company or any of the normal franchises at all, so saying that it's the reason you don't eat at Burger King anymore is nonsensical to a degree bordering on moronic.

The highlight of any trip I make west is finding a Jack-in-the-Box. Oh how I miss them.
