To think Burger King ripped me off today

I took the plunge and went through their drive thru today. Now I don't usually use Burger King and I wasn't sure what to order and felt a bit rushed as they where waiting for me to order and there was a car behind me so I quickly glanced over the menu and ordered a Bacon double Cheeseburger priced at Ialhtough in my haste I didn't really see the price.
Well when I took it out of the wrapper I coudnt believe it I thought perhaps they had mistakenly given me a childs burger it was that small.
I could have paid £1.49 at mcdonalds instead and it would have even tasted better.
What a complete utter rip off I feel cheated.
Anybody else had this disappointment at Burgerking.

I don't like BurgerKing. McDonalds all the way/

Yes!!! It's very very expensive. It cost us almost £20 for two adult meals at a service station once. Would have been nearer £8 at McDonalds!

I was there last week and thought it was expensive, the main meals seem to be around £6 compared to around £4 in McDonald's. I was impressed with their fancy drink machine though.

No, they didn't rip you off. You bought something and didn't like it. Don't buy it again.

I actually really like BK burgers, prefer them to McDs. Haven't had one for ages though so not sure of the price.
Are you sure they didn't mishear you and thought that you ordered a child's meal by mistake?

I don't eat at Burger King since they changed their fries

But I used to love the Whopper burger.

3.99 is cheap for BK!

I went into one at the services during Xmas - we were making an epic trek! - and it cost us nearly £15 for two meals. We can cover a pizza express quick dinner on a voucher for that!

Honestly I was astounded lol I thought have I really just paid £3.99 for this.

scribblegirl Tue 16-Feb-16 18:56:11

X-post with Mrs there!

I prefer their burgers, but they are bloody pricy!

The burger buns always taste stale to me.

LilacAndLovely Tue 16-Feb-16 18:59:11

I've made the same mistake op...their bacon double cheeseburger really IS tiny.

There is a decent sized version (which is the one I saw someone eating once, and what I thought i'd be getting) - think it's an XL bacon double cheeseburger? But a lot pricier probably!

Ordered in a rush, werent happy with results, typed in a rush, made mistake.

Maybe you just need to slow down?

RudeElf Tue 16-Feb-16 19:00:24

Oh its a loler. Whoda thunkit.

poocatcherchampion Tue 16-Feb-16 19:01:18

Dh is always reluctant to get bk as it is too expensive. Tightwad. It is delicious!

I really really want one now.

lakia Tue 16-Feb-16 19:01:23

I have been on their website to check the prices but cant find any

Don't be so rude, Rude

HarrysMummy17 Tue 16-Feb-16 19:01:54

It's usually cheaper to buy a meal. Dp and I went to kfc. He has a meal which was £4.49. I had just a burger that was £3.49!!

lakia Tue 16-Feb-16 19:02:42

Yes probably my own fault just went on the op I thought I would be getting the whopper size

MrsTedMosby Tue 16-Feb-16 19:03:29

The bacon double cheeseburger XL is the one you needed. Their prices differ depending on where you are - service stations are an expensive rip off.

I don't go that often, honest!

lakia Tue 16-Feb-16 19:03:37

There is always one isn't there

We stopped going to Burger King when they repeatedly gave us chicken nuggets that were so over cooked the children couldn't physically eat them.
The Ocean Catch they used to do years ago was lovely, though. Think it stopped in about 1998 sad.
