Sorry, but unless that also comes with a blowjob I'm not getting Burger King delivered.

This is silly. People eat at Burger King because it's right there on the way home from work, and it's fast. If you're gonna sit around and wait for a delivery guy, wouldn't you rather wait for some 'real' food?

I would think the target audience would be people stuck at work who eat lunch at their desks and have already had Jimmy Johns, pizza, Chinese, and Jimmy Johns again that week.

restaurants that offer "real" food generally don't offer delivery. The exception being meal services where they deliver the food and you cook it yourself.

do they bring frozen food?

In related news...the guy I work with who walks in with a bag full of McDonald's food every night has been in the hospital for a week and counting. No one was surprised to hear it.

They need to forget home delivery gimmicks and get better fries. Even though Bk has revamped their fries multiple times over the last 2 decades, they still taste like ass.

Otoh they do have some of the better commercials - the frozen faced king and those blowjob "big sandwiches" still make me smile. Too bad the didn't spend that cash on food development.

Cause the only thing better than Burger King is slightly cold, crumpled Burger King delivered by someone who couldn't get a job at the nearest pizza joint.

Because going through the drive-thru and bringing it to work takes way more time than someone driving it to your work allowing it to cool more.

There is a service in Tulsa called 742-Dine. Yes, they named themselves after their phone number. But its essentially a 3rd party delivery service that will deliver from nearly every restaurant in town.

Does this mean I'm closer to getting a Whataburger with Cheese and Jalapeno, side of fries, and a large Coke dropped at my doorstep???

I hope this chest pain is just joy!!1!

Burger King ensures all its food is pre-cooled straight off the counter, because apparently having short prep time takes precedence over serving you a hot order.

These same fast food restaurants already deliver in many other countries...hardly a new front.

Whether you have to go there or they bring it to you, booger king is still nasty. If you still insist on eating it, pick the one nearest to your local horse racing track. The meat will be fresher.

Forget burger king, I want KFC to start doing delivery around here like they do in other countries. Also someone better than Wing Zone to deliver wings would be a plus too.

Oh, man, KFC. It smells heavenly, but I never feel right after I eat there. Everything is soooooooooo greasy.

The last two times I've ordered Burger King, it's been cold before I can open the dang wrapper, 2 minutes later. Seriously, unless the delivery cars are food trucks parked in your driveway, deep frying fries this this idea is a giant fail.

/ BK is on the "do not purchase" list

We have a few of those services come and go around here, and currently don't have one. When they have run, they were slammed with business so I don't think it was a lack of business. This is Cobb County GA, so if I had to guess, it would be that the corporate chains have bought some law regarding "food safety" or something along those lines that acts as a barrier to entry. Small Govt Republicanism around here means the Govt goes after the small guy on behalf of the big boys.

In Chicago we have a couple of places that list a bunch of restaurant menus and let you order online from any of them. That seems like a much more efficient/sanitary approach.

They closed all the Whataburgers near us. We did get a 5 Guys, but its 3x farther away than Whataburger was.

The McDonalds by me used to deliver in the Upper East Side.

There's nothing better than McDonalds delivery while hungover on a snowy New Years Day.

Every time I see that kid, I wonder what the hell is up with the creases on his upper arms. It looks like his right arm belongs on a GI Joe action figure.

A friend of a friend back in high school did McDonald's delivery during the test run where I lived, back in the mid-90's. It didn't last.

I still miss McPizza, as much as I know I should be ashamed to admit that.

The key to success in this is to start the service in Washington and Colorado.
