"Someone f*ck1ng spit on my burger!" ... the Burger King Loaded Steakhouse Burger

Two words about this new burger: STAY and AWAY.
Remember the McDonald's McRib?
Well, this is what the Steakhouse Burger reminded me of, except it also tasted like someone gurgled with a big spoonful of mashed potatoes and spit it out on top of the burger.
I think we've finally "jumped the shark" on over-the-top burgers.
I mean, c'mon, mashed potatoes on a friggin burger that already comes loaded with (dehydrated?) fried onions, bacon, cheese, A1 sauce and, oh yeah, a big fat hamburger patty.
Like I said above ... STAY AWAY.
What ... huh? It tastes like the McRib? Does it have that lovely spongy texture too? Wow a McRiib tasting product with mashed potatoes on top ... yeah ... that's what the McRib was missing ... mashed potatoes. Dang, when they ressurect the McRib next time around, that means a second stop at KFC to get some mashed potatoes on top. Thanks for the tip. I'ms so at Burger King ... you PROMISE it tastes like the McRib?
Ok, you made it sound so irresistably trashy I had to try it.
Yeah, not a lot to love there though I didn't find it as puke-inducing as you. I am ashamed to say I spent $5.23 on this thing (with tax).
Maybe if I had seen this picture on Flickr I wouldn't have done it ... funny comments too.
'you’re paying a rather hefty price for a rather meager burger that consists of dry, chewy beef, a pig’s ass worth of bacon, a gentle wipe of mashed potatoes, and some crushed Funyuns ... The type of burger that you want to tell your mom about, but are too afraid because she would think you were shooting up heroin with the wrong crowd."
Cross section photo which is even worse ... in no way would I have bought it if I saw this ...
The guy thought it was like a Salsbury steak tv dinner on a bun.
Almost didn't buy it. The BK description was "baked potato topping' and I wanted mashed potatoes. I've had burgers from a lot of countries that add French Fries, but never saw mashed potatoes before.
Well, they are mashed as mentioned and not baked. The burger didn't taste like a McRib but it didn't have that phony char-broiled taste that makes me such a fan of the Whopper. Don't remember the onion rings at all and I kind of liked the bun.
Had I eaten the whole thing it would have been 970 calories, 2,190mg of sodium and 55g fat. The dogs next door enjoyed it very much ... but they are not chowhounds. I swear I've never seen a company seem to go out of its way to kill people like Burger King ... they always seem to find ways to stuff more and more fat and calories inbetween two buns.
This blog seems to share your contempt for the burger ..
"It tastes like a baked potato went out for a night on the town. He danced and drank all evening and stumbled home in the wee hours of the morning. With blood-shot eyes, he entered his apartment. His roommate, the steak burger, met him at the door. The sweaty baked potato promptly threw up all over him."
Yep ... avoid this one. Probably one of the worst fast food burgers I've had in my life.
Yeah, really and especially for that price. I mean, I could have gotten a really decent burger for that money.
One saving grace ... sort of ... the guy giving me my order made a mistake with the previous customer and had an extra orange soda and gave it to me for free ... so it technically reduced the price.
It is no McDonald's orange soda. It is a bright toxic orange. I had a few sips and then stared and stared a the orange glow coming from the cup ... and tossed it. The doggies aren't into soda pop.
There was mashed potatoes on that sh*t? I had one the other night because I was late leaving school and the husband wanted burgers from there, so i indulged him. That abomination was my choice. There were so many odd tastes going on I couldn't identify any of them. The burger had a very odd consistiency, and the bacon was non-existient. I couldn't eat more than a quarter of it before it started to make me gag. What a waste of money.
It seems not only is it bad, it's inconsistant. I didn't have "a pig’s ass worth of bacon, a gentle wipe of mashed potatoes". It was mainly mashed potatoes, with some bacon. Until I read the description, I didn't realize there were onion rings or something on it.
And it was soft ... so, so soft. I thought "this must be the type of food you have to eat if you lose all your teeth" ... and I immediately brushed and flossed.
