BK Stuffed Steakhouse Burger

i just had this for lunch, and it is hands down, one of the best, if not the best, fast food burger i have ever had. truly, you could put this on a plate and serve it in a restaurant and no one would guess it was fast food.

the patty is stuffed with little chunks of cheese and jalapeno. and they did not skimp on it. the jalapeno was fresh, green, bright and had a nice heat.

the patty was much thicker than i expected. it was served on a bakery type bun that held together very well. it has lettuce and tomato. now, i know tomatoes are not going to be the same everywhere, but my slices were delightful. not at all mealy (a huge pet peeve of mine.) they put a creamy poblano sauce on, as well.

if i had one teeny tiny complaint, it would be that the patty was touch drier than i would have preferred. but you how these fast food places cook the life out of stuff. if i could have asked for it medium, it would have been perfection.

i hope they keep this around for awhile.

    I know that admitting this will probably remove all my Chowhound credentials, but I saw this advertised at a BK near where I work, and I had to try it. I liked it. I probably would tire of it if I ate it too often, but for every once in a while this is a nice change of pace.

      I used a buy one-get one free coupon last night, so I tried TWO of these. They tasted okay -- surprisingly spicy, but extremely dry to the point of almost being charred on the outside. The way the highly processed patties look isn't terribly appetizing, though. They look a lot like those frozen vegetarian patties due to all the multicolored chunks, and that was a turn-off.

      The poblano cream sauce, lettuce, and tomatoes worked well, and the soft bun held together, but I would have liked them so much more if they weren't hockey-puck dry. That's a complaint I have with Burger King burgers in general, and the main reason I usually opt for McDonald's McDoubles when I'm craving cheap fast food burgers.

        I had the same experience, Dried out and overcooked, the scary thing I noticed is that those chunks of cheese still looked completely solid making me wonder what they are actually made of, because I would have thought that real cheese would have been oozing out to some extent due to the cooking process.

        I tried one of these today... and was pretty satisfied for a $7 value meal. The burger was definitely tasty, and everything was well paired. Not going to eat one every day, but a nice option from BK.

          I tried this a few days ago and found it to be surprisingly good. But I had to overcome quite a bit of trepidation before taking my first bite. No offense, but the raw appearance of these things can't help but bring back my memories of vintage ads for cheese-filled Gaines-burgers.

            And the posters for them make them look as if they're stuffed with particularly insalubrious puke. Has to be the worst food photograph going.

            What's a Juicy Lucy? If the BK burger is dry, maybe they should change the name.
