The Whopper JR is a mighty fine burger. When I have deal with car food...that's my choice.

Also off menu they'll have a Whooper JR veggie burger. Which has 21 g of protein compared to the 9 g of a normal Whoper Jr. and only 390 calories.  Just ask for it they'll cook it to order on request. A bit heavy on salt and fat...but wadda better than a fast food salad.

get free icewater instead of soda.

I'm very surprised at my local BK...the sandwiches actually look closer to the glamor shots on websites and ad more so than any other place.

Burger King, next to Taco Bell, has always been the perfect fast food restaurant for late night stoners and insomniacs. They had a burger with french fries on it on their dollar menu for a while. I think they have a dollar western burger right now.

Many years ago I worked the night shift at a print shop. I'd get home around the same time my roommates were getting up and having breakfast.

Now, I don't usually get supermarket sushi, because you can never tell how long it's been sitting around. But at my local Vons, the lady who made and packaged their sushi set up her table in the early mornings, so I'd get the stuff fresh off her cutting board.

So while my roommates were eating their cornflakes, I'd be having a beer and fresh sushi.

If I have a hangover I'm just going to get a ham/egg/cheese croissan'wich at BK anyway. It's the only thing that can get rid of it so I can go back into work.

We've got a few fast food restaurants open all night around my work site, but usually just drive through, which sucks when I just want to run across the street for BK, or a block away for A&W or Tims, or 3 blocks total for McDonalds, and AFAIK, all but the McDonalds serve burgers all the time (and TIm's, but they never have burgers, so it's a moot point.)

The BK patties  in California are greyish looking, while the BK patties everywhere else looks normal.
 
2014-05-09 04:12:02 AM  
The best thing for a hangover is a 6 minute steak or blue steak with an egg and to wash it down water with a table spoon of, Worcester sauce, Tabasco, and a dash of salt in the water.

That being said I will always prefer a burger to the breakfast food any fast food restuarant puts out.

Also, a Colorado omelet from IHOP is very tasty.

Screw these wretched take away junk food dumps, and screw the customers too. So, so many fat people screaming for big Macs and big tastes at 4am.when I was young and desperate enough to work at a place where abuse from customers suffering from fat withdrawal at 4am was acceptable.

I don't mean the workmen or drivers or other early morning workers requiring substance for their busy day, I mean the fat families with fat children who couldn't be farked to make some toast or porridge in the morning. /incoherent rant

There's a White Castle near work here.  But their drive thru service isn't particularly fast.  So if I want to stop there on the way to work, I have to get up for work early.

If you really wanted those kind of funny tasting pink slime burgers, you could have gotten them at any hour between opening and closing in Seattle. For decades now, subby. Old news is--slimy. Addictive. With liquid smoke additive.

Really? I'm not a fast food conessier. I rarely eat it. I'll admit the Whopper junior has a nice flavor balance and is about right for my appetite. My pet peeve; why do they serve shredded lettuce instead of just a leaf. Gets all over your car seat and floorboards. Probably causes accidents. Next to tacos it's about the worst car food ever.

I worked third shift in a newborn nursery for over a year when I was in the military.  The dining hall served breakfast at ten at night and then again at the "normal" breakfast time.  Over that year I lost about twenty pounds from that diet.  My buddies and I did a research project and presented to the hospital commander. We documented the weight loss of a bunch of night workers.  Within the month the base instituted a midnight meal that was equivalent to the daytime lunch.

the mcdonalds in my town is open 24 hours, which is great, but they switch to a "late night menu" which for some bizarre reason does not include big macs.  i work third shift and would love to stop over for lunch and get me a big mac.  if they started serving them at breakfast time i would go there way more often, but i doubt that will ever happen.
 
2014-05-09 08:00:21 AM  
Managers to be strung up by their toes 6 months after implementation.

The burgers will be cooked on the same area the eggs etc are cooked on, after all.  That's twice as much cleaning.

I may not have worked in a fast food restaurant since 1997, but by beer and rum I remember the basics.

in 1997 a friend and i who had some classes together would regularly go to bk (at least twice a week) for whoppers and hashbrown rounds for breakfast...so, nothing new there. i haven't been to bk much in years, but the last time i tried a few years ago, i could still get burgers at breakfast

those hashbrown rounds should've been available all the time! pretty much just flat tater tots

You do know that is probably due to the high sodium content and not the burger being not real food, right?

BK Manager here-
1. We've been selling burgers for breakfast for years
2. McD's uses the same equipment for breakfast as they do for lunch, which precludes selling both. Why? because you don't want eggs and burgers cooking on the same grill at the same time - allergies, potential cross contamination, etc...
3. We could cook breakfast all day if BKC would allow it. We have separate cooking equipment for breakfast and lunch - meat on the broiler, eggs on the egg cooker, baked goods in the oven and fried foods in the fryers.

\I like to cook steaks on our broiler

If you combine the cheeseburger with the egg, and add a hash brown, that sounds good and you've still got a sausage muffin leftover.

Yes, it can Children will, for the first few years, mostly eat what their bodies need (as long as you don't offer them sugary food or sugary juices or milk all the time) and no more.

Doesn't hurt a monster to do a "food rut" once in a while. What hurts is if you deny that to the children, so they have food-based problems for the rest of their lives.

Around here, Jack In the Box has a late-nite menu with stoner food, but it's only available after 9:00 pm. I asked the guy at the register one day, and he told me that technically they're not supposed to offer those items until after 9:00, but if they weren't busy they'd make it for me. Still haven't tried any of the late-nite item yet, though.

wait a sec..

So, by doing this I will no longer have to wait? it is a no brainer.. I still will eat BK over McDonalds anytime of the day..
