The other week, our office was treated to a sampling of Burger King's BK Stuffed Steakhouse burger, a BK broiler that is packed with nugs of cheese and jalapeno (you've probably seen the ads on TV). When we first saw it, we were skeptical, but when Burger King offered to send some by for us to try, we figured we'd give it a shot. This Burger King creation was actually quite good. It's rare that we indulge in fast food in these parts (there are buger restaurants all over the place near our office), but if you stop into Burger King before this limited edition meal runs out, give it a try. The burger has a smoky hit to it, and the jalapenos keep it popping. Co-signed (on the rills, no shills!).
BK Stuffed Steakhouse: The Pickin' Burgers Index
Price: 4 ($3.99).
Convenience: 5 (Available at participating Burger King restaurants nationwide for a limited time)
Taste: 4 (For a fast food burger, this one did not disappoint. All those cheese and jalapeno pockets give it a nice kick, and our crew left satisfied).
Total: 13 (out of 20).
The Pickin' Burgers Index explained:
Taste is ranked on a 10-point scale, and is entirely subjective, entirely at each individual reviewer's discretion.
Price and Convenience are objective measurements on a 5-point scale. For Price, a "5" is given to burgers costing less than $2.50, a "4" to burgers costing $2.50 to $10, with a point drop for each subsequent $5 price increase (a "3" for $10-$15, a "2" for $15-$20, etc., to a "1" for $20+).
For Convenience, a "5" is awarded to burgers served at over 1000 locations, a "4" to burgers served at 100-1000 locations in more than 30 states, a "3" to burgers served at 10-100 locations in more than one state, a "2" to burgers served at more than one location in a city or region, and a "1" to burgers served at one location.
