I had heard that some New York City Burger Kings were going to offer this option, but I didn't realize how ridiculous that sounded until I got a delivery menu not long ago. The full BK menu isn't available, but the favorites are there.
- Whopper combo: $6.99
- Five-piece chicken strip combo: $8.99
- Large fries or large onion rings: $2.49
- 16 oz. tropical mango smoothie: $3.49
- My personal favorite: fresh apple slices for $1.99. I don't even know how many apples I could buy at the bodega across the street for that price.
When I received the menu, I thought about ordering delivery just so I could write a blog post about it. I banished that from my mind in about two seconds.
I'll admit that Burger King is one of my favorite fast-food restaurants (My usual order: a Whopper Jr. and mozzarella sticks. The sticks aren't on the menu, but they still have them if you ask!), but it doesn't even come close to the Chinese, Thai, Polish and Middle Eastern restaurants I can order from in the neighborhood. And those are just the ones I can think of offhand.
And even though I enjoy a Hershey's sundae pie every now and again, I'd much rather spend an extra few bucks and order a slice of Brooklyn Blackout cake from Little Cupcake. Delivery or not, you're going to have to try harder to tempt me, Burger King.
