REVIEW: Burger King Stacker King

Burger King Stacker King

What is the Burger King Stacker King?

The newfangled Burger King Stacker King, as the name implies, is the beefed up (literally) spiritual successor to BK’s fan-favorite Stacker. Indeed, the Stacker King is more or less the same concept as the decade-old mega meat sensation. It’s a combination of flame grilled beef, a deluge of crispy bacon, a hearty helping of American cheese, and a delightful dollop of the proprietary Stacker Sauce. And, depending on your appetite/lack of concern for your wellbeing, it comes in single, double and triple patty-stacked permutations.

How is it?

You know exactly what you’re getting into with this one. The Stacker King (I went with the double-patty offering) is an ultra-satisfying, no frills, no-risks-taken burger that’s about one thing, and one thing only — volume.

You have to give Burger King some props on this one because they did not skimp out on the protein; in fact, my Stacker King came loaded with no less than EIGHT strips of bacon, which is enough to qualify as a breakfast buffet legally. And the Stacker Sauce — something of a lite chipotle mayo medley with a teensy taste of relish and celery — is a plain fantastic condiment, which I’d love to see released as a retail product.

Is there anything else you need to know?

Something like the Stacker King is almost a review-proof fast food item. Right off the bat, you know whether you’d love it or flee from it in terror, so if the photos get your stomach rumbling or churning, I can promise you the actual product would have the same effect on your tummy. Two words of warning before you place your order, though: running the gamut from $5.49 to just shy of $8 (in metro-Atlanta, anyway) these sandwiches aren’t the cheapest burgers on the market, and they have nearly a full day’s worth of sodium.

Conclusion:

Burger King Stacker King Cheese

It may not be a terribly creative item, but the Stacker King is unquestionably a scrumptious and extremely filling fast food L-T-O. Sure, we could complain about the product being a little bit too basic (this thing would’ve been considerably better with Swiss or Havarti), and the lack of virtually any veggies might put a few would-be diners off. But on the whole, this is a yummy, unsophisticated, XXXL burger that does everything it has to and absolutely nothing more; obviously, the more artisanal fast food fans need not apply here.
