Burger King’s Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich


Is the Burger King’s Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich worth a try? Does it taste any good and what about the nutrition facts for this sandwich? How does it compare to the McDonald’s McRib or even to Burger King’s own Rib Sandwich. In addition to answering these questions, I will also answer the question of what is in the pork meat for each of these sandwiches.

To try the Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich I went to the Burger King at 6780 North Durango Drive in Las Vegas, Nevada 89149. I ordered my sandwich in drive thru. I went at lunchtime and the drive thru line was busy but service was fast and the person at the window was friendly. I was served a hot and fresh Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich and fries.

Burger King’s Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich

Let me start by saying that I am pleased to announce that Burger King’s Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich is actually very good. After so many bad reviews for Burger King, I was wondering if I would ever be able to give them a good review. From their overly salty Philly Chicken Sandwich or their poorly put together Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper or even their Rib Sandwich with a rib patty that did not really taste like pork, I was not finding very much to like.

Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich

The Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich uses the same toasted artisan style bun as the Burger King’s Rib Sandwich. I like the bun as it is soft on the inside yet strong enough on the outside to keep all ingredients inside the bun. The pulled pork was tender and actually tasted like pork meat. The pulled pork was combined with their Memphis BBQ Sauce to provide a sweet and smoky flavor that was also very good. This is not the same tangy BBQ Sauce that is used with Burger King’s Rib Sandwich. The crisp sliced onions add some crunch and works well on this sandwich. Instead of cheese, Burger King adds a Sweet Southern Dressing or “Cole Slaw Sauce” to provide the creaminess for this sandwich. Overall, the Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich is very good.

Burger King’s Rib Sandwich

Burger King's Rib SandwichThe first plus for Burger King’s Rib Sandwich is that the toasted artisan style bun is very good. The bun is soft and slightly sweet. The bun for the Rib Sandwich held together well and tasted fresh. The next plus is the tangy BBQ Sauce. The BBQ Sauce was very good and combined the sweet with tangy to provide good flavor to the Rib Sandwich. The crispy bread and butter pickles were also a great addition that added a little crispness to this sandwich. I left the Boneless Rib Patty to last because it was ok, but not great considering the rest of the sandwich. The charring on the patty was a welcome addition and did add some flavor to the patty. The problem I had with the Rib Patty was its taste. As I said, it was ok but it tasted like the processed meat patties you get in those old school TV dinners. It tastes kind of like meat but you are not sure what kind of meat.

McDonald’s McRib

I am a fan of the McDonald’s McRib. Whenever the McRib comes back, I must have one. I like everything about the McRib, from the tart pickles to the slivered onions. I like the hoagie style bun, the BBQ Sauce that McDonald’s uses and of course, I like the Pork Patty. Everything in the McRib comes together to bring sweet, tart, texture and taste to life.

Is it Really Pork Meat?

When I first posted my review of Burger King’s Rib Sandwich the number one question I kept getting was “What kind of meat is in the Rib Sandwich?” Here I am going to provide the list of ingredients for each of the three sandwiches and try to explain what it all means.

Burger King’s Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork

Burger King's Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Ingredients

PULLED PORK- pork, barbeque sauce (water, high fructose corn syrup, tomato paste, distilled vinegar, sugar, salt, modified food starch, mustard (water, vinegar, mustard bran, salt), natural smoke flavor, tamarind extract, sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate (preservatives), caramel color, spices, ground paprika, malic acid, tomato powder, citric acid, garlic powder, onion powder).

The first listed ingredient is pork and really, that is the only ingredient for the meat in this sandwich. The rest of the listed ingredients are for the barbeque sauce that the pulled pork is marinated in. This is good because this means that the meat is all pork, no fillers or preservatives. Even the barbeque sauce is good health wise. There are a few preservatives in the BBQ sauce (sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate and citric acid) but nothing out of the ordinary. The rest of the BBQ ingredients make up the flavors for the sauce.

Burger King’s Rib Patty

Burger King’s Rib Patty Ingredients

PORK RIB PATTY: Pork, Water, Less than 2% of Salt , Sodium Phosphate, Sugar, Flavoring, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Soybean, Palm, Cottonseed), Maltodextrin (Corn & Potato), Grill Flavor from Vegetable Oil, Disodium Guanylate, Disodium Inosinate, Smoke Flavor, Vinegar, Natural Flavor.

Again, we start off with Pork as the first listed ingredient. However, this time all the other listed ingredients are added to the pork to make the patty. Unlike the Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork list of ingredients for flavoring where you know what each item is, here the list is just Flavoring, Grill Flavor, Smoke Flavor and of course Natural Flavor. We have no way of knowing what these are and most likely these are not natural or they would have been listed. Next there are plenty of preservatives and fillers. No wonder the meat that makes up this patty has that processed taste.

McDonald’s McRib Patty

McDonald’s McRib Patty Ingredients

MCRIB PORK PATTY: Pork, Water, Salt, Dextrose, Preservatives (BHA, Propyl Gallate, Citric Acid).

Another good start with Pork being the number one ingredient. The rest of the ingredients are for flavor (water, salt and Dextrose (Sugar)) and preservatives. I like that the list is short and there are no fillers in the McDonald’s Pork patty.

Summary

It is hard to beat the McDonald’s McRib when it comes to taste and even though I like Burger King’s Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich a lot, I can not bring myself to say that it is better. What I will say is that it is very good in its own right. You can avoid Burger King’s Rib Sandwich, as the pork patty just does not taste like pork.

From a nutrition standpoint Burger King’s Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich is the clear winner. It is the healthiest of the three and uses the most natural ingredients. McDonald’s McRib is also made with real pork with no fillers. The pork used in Burger King’s Rib Sandwich uses fillers and many preservatives.

Can Burger King’s Rib Sandwich Dethrone the McRib?


Burger King's Rib SandwichBurger King’s Rib Sandwich is their latest introduction of new sandwiches to help bring new life to their stores. Over the past year, Burger King has done a good job of introducing new sandwiches that look interesting and seem like they would do well for them like the Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper and the Philly Chicken Sandwich. Unfortunately, Burger King falls down when it comes to execution. Many of the stores still look old and tired.  They need to do more to get the quality up at the store level so we can enjoy the great offerings that they have worked so hard to create and promote.

The Burger King Rib Sandwich is trying to follow the McDonald’s success of only offering the McRib for a limited time each year. Burger King is trying the same philosophy to build buzz around its Rib Sandwich by only offering the Rib Sandwich on their Summer Menu. Simply just called “Rib Sandwich” there is very little originality in the name, concept or how it is being promoted.

To try the Rib Sandwich I went to the Burger King at 6780 North Durango Drive in Las Vegas Nevada 89149. I ordered my sandwich in drive thru. I went at lunchtime and the drive thru line was busy but service was fast and the person at the window was friendly. I was served a hot and fresh Rib Sandwich and fries. So far, I am having a very pleasant experience at this Burger King location.

Burger King’s Rib Sandwich

Burger King's Rib SandwichEven though I have had several bad experiences as of late at Burger King, I want this sandwich to be good. First, the sandwich looks smaller than I expected. However, when I check it for size against the McRib they are both about the same size by weight, 7.2 ounces for the Rib Sandwich vs. 7.3 ounces for the McRib. I guess the shape of the McRib must make it look bigger. The first plus for the Rib Sandwich is that the toasted artisan style bun is very good. The bun is soft and slightly sweet. Somewhat similar to the bun used at Arby’s for their new King’s Hawaiian Roast Beef & Swiss. The bun for the Rib Sandwich held together well and tasted fresh. The next plus is the tangy BBQ Sauce. The BBQ Sauce was very good and combined the sweet with tangy to provide good flavor to the Rib Sandwich. The crispy bread and butter pickles were also a great addition that added a little crispiness to this sandwich. I left the Boneless Rib Patty to last because it was ok, but not great considering the rest of the sandwich. The charring on the patty was a welcome addition and did add a good flavor to the patty. The only problem I had with the Rib Patty was its taste. As I said, it was ok but it tasted like the processed meat patties you get in those old school TV dinners. It tastes kind of like meat but you are not sure what kind of meat.

Summary

From a taste perspective, I say that the McDonald’s McRib wins out but only because of the Pork Patty. All the other ingredients on the Burger King Rib Sandwich are better tasting then the McDonald’s McRib. If you like the McRib, go ahead and try Burger King’s version. You may not have the same issue I had with the pork patty. Comparing Nutrition for these two sandwiches the McRib comes out slightly ahead. However, neither Rib Sandwich is very healthy. I would say that the McDonald’s McRib is in no danger of being dethroned by Burger King’s Rib Sandwich any time soon.

Reviews of Burger King’s Original Chicken, Italian Chicken and their New Philly Chicken Sandwiches


Burger King Chicken Sandwich ReviewsI will start by saying that in the past I have liked Burger King’s Italian Chicken sandwich and I also like a good Philly Cheesesteak. So I thought it was at least worth a try to taste Burger King’s new Philly Chicken Sandwich. I mean how bad could it be, right?

In this review I will start with a review of Burger King’s Italian Chicken sandwich and then review their new Philly Chicken sandwich. I will also include information on Burger King’s Original Chicken sandwich for comparison.

For this review I dined in at the Burger King at 9714 Mission Gorge Road in Santee, CA. As I wanted to review both the Italian Chicken and Philly Chicken sandwiches it was good that they had a buy one get one free promotion. So I ordered one of each. The cashier told me that I could take a seat and they would bring it out when my order was ready. After waiting a very long time I went up to the counter to find out what was taking so long. As I got there the manager was about to take my sandwich to fill an order in drive thru. The cashier let her know that the Italian was with extra sauce and she reluctantly gave it to him. I finally got my order.

So, why is it that in almost all fast food restaurants drive thru orders are placed as a higher priority over orders taken at the counter? This is not the first time I have been a victim of this, it happens all the time. I understand that they want to get the cars through as fast as possible but I placed an order as well and waiting a long time in the lobby is just as frustrating for a customer. Anyway, continuing to the review.

So after all this you would think that my food would have been served hot and fresh. But no, my fries and sandwiches where warm at best. The cheese on the Italian Chicken sandwich was not melted at all. The cheese on the Philly Chicken looked to be a little more melted but still was not hot. Let’s look at each sandwich in detail now.

The Burger King Italian Chicken Sandwich

What goes into the Burger King Italian Chicken Sandwich

Burger King's Chicken Sandwich ReviewsAccording to Burger King’s website the Italian Chicken sandwich starts with their original lightly-breaded chicken fillet topped with melted, thick, natural mozzarella cheese and then smothered with sweet tangy marinara sauce and served hot on a toasted sesame seed bun.

To start with my sandwich was not served to me as it was described on their website. The cheese was not “melted”, the sandwich was not “smothered” with sauce and it was not served “hot”. Even after asking for extra sauce there was very little sauce on this sandwich.

How does the Burger King Italian Chicken Sandwich Taste?

As I said at the beginning of this review, in the past I have always liked the Italian Chicken sandwich from Burger King and I look forward to its limited return to their menu whenever they bring it back. However, somehow the quality at Burger King has gone way down. With the sandwich being cold and the cheese not melted at all and only a hint of sauce, this was a very dry sandwich. Also, it seems that they have increased the amount of salt so that is all you really taste. I do not think I will look forward to having an Italian Chicken sandwich from Burger King the next time they bring it back. That is of course unless I forget my bad experience and think it will be made the way I remember it from years past.

Nutrition Facts for the Italian Chicken Sandwich

Burger King's Chicken Sandwich Reviews
Burger King’s Italian Chicken Sandwich Nutrition Facts

From a nutrition standpoint there are only two positive things I can say about Burger King’s Italian Chicken sandwich. It is very high in protein at 32 grams and it is the healthiest of the three sandwiches based on Burger King’s original chicken sandwich. That’s not saying much as it has 520 Calories and 21 grams of fat. Saturated fat is 7 grams and 3 grams of fiber. It has 65 mg of cholesterol. Carbohydrates come in at 54 grams. But the very worst for this sandwich is the sodium level at 1670 mg that’s 70% of your daily allowance in a single sandwich. If you are watching your sodium intake you will need to avoid this sandwich. The following are the known allergens for this sandwich: milk, wheat and soy. Also, if you are allergic to fish you may want to avoid this sandwich as it may have been cooked in the same oil as the fish filet.

The Burger King Philly Chicken Sandwich

What goes into the Burger King Philly Chicken Sandwich

Burger King's Chicken Sandwich ReviewsAccording to Burger King’s website the Philly Chicken sandwich starts with their original lightly-breaded chicken fillet topped traditional Philly-Style toppings – a colorful mix of bell peppers and seasoned grilled onions, served with American cheese and smothered with a creamy cheese sauce and served hot on a toasted sesame seed bun.

At first I thought that the cheese had somehow melted on this sandwich even though it was not hot. But, actually the cheese was not melted from the heat of the chicken but only appeared to be melted because of the creamy cheese sauce. This sandwich did have lots of green and red bell peppers and grilled onions.

How does the Burger King Philly Chicken Sandwich Taste?

So I stated with the premise that I like a good Philly Cheesesteak and how bad could the Burger King Philly Chicken sandwich be, right? Well, pretty bad. The American cheese, cheese sauce, bell peppers and grilled onions pretty much taste like mush on a bed of salt. I finished about half this sandwich as I wanted to make sure I was giving it a fair review. But every bite was a chore and I would not recommend this sandwich to anyone.

If you are watching your sodium intake you will need to avoid this sandwich. The following are the known allergens for this sandwich: milk, wheat and soy. Also, if you are allergic to fish you may want to avoid this sandwich as it may have been cooked in the same oil as the fish filet.

The Burger King Original Chicken Sandwich

The healthiest option for a Burger King Chicken sandwich using the original Chicken Patty is to have the Original Chicken Sandwich without the Mayo.

Carbohydrates are still at 46 grams. The sodium level comes down a little at 1210 mg. At least you are down to half the daily allowance for sodium. The following are the known allergens for this sandwich: milk, wheat, and soy. Also, if you are allergic to fish you may want to avoid this sandwich as it may have been cooked in the same oil as the fish filet.

Summary

First, completely avoid Burger King’s Philly Chicken sandwich. It tastes terrible and is very unhealthy. If you can get the Italian Chicken sandwich made hot and fresh with the cheese melted and plenty of sauce then it is ok if you are ok with the high salty taste. If you want a healthy choice with one of these sandwiches be sure to avoid the Original Chicken sandwich with the mayo (its numbers are the worst overall of the three).

Review of Burger King’s Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper


Burger King's Wisconsin White Cheddar WhopperFor this review I am going to compare the new Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper from Burger King with the Angus CBO from McDonald’s. I have already reviewed the Angus CBO and liked it a lot. Can Burger King beat the Angus CBO from McDonald’s?

Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper from Burger King

The new Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper sandwich is ¼ lb. grilled beef, topped with smoked bacon, Wisconsin white cheddar cheese, lettuce, red onions, tomatoes and pickles on a sesame seed bun.

Burger King's Wisconsin White Cheddar WhopperTo try the Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper I went to the Burger King at 12427 Poway RoadPoway CA 92064. I decided to dine in for this visit. I went in around 5 PM on a weekday. As I went in, there was only one family sitting in the lobby and another couple just finished getting their order for take out. I placed my order and waited. It was taking awhile so I looked to see what was going on. I could see that my food was ready but no one was there to give me my order. Finally someone came up to the front just looking around. It looked like he was lost. After a few more minutes he noticed there was an order ready and placed my order in a bag very slowly. He then noticed on the receipt that this was for dine-in so he very slowly took the items out of the bag and placed them on a tray.  Once I got my order I went to a table and inspected the burger. The burger was cold and the meat looked undercooked. The cheese was missing, no pickles or tomatoes. It did have a few onions, the mayo, the bacon and a single piece of lettuce. The bun was stale and fell apart as I tried to eat this poorly prepared burger. Because this was so bad I decided that before I can give this a proper review I will need to try this burger again from a different Burger King.

Burger King's Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper.Burger King's Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper
A week later I made a second attempt at the Burger King at 6735 Mira Mesa Boulevard, Plaza Sorrento, San Diego, CA 92121. I went inside for this visit. There were only a few people in the restaurant when I went in. Service was slow and again it took awhile to get my food. I went back to my table and inspected my burger. The burger was served cold.  This time the burger was prepared with almost all the proper ingredients that are shown in the photo in the window and the video menu board behind the counter. However, the advertisements shows two sliced of cheese but my burger only had one slice of cheese. I asked the counter person if it should include one or two slices of cheese. She apologized and had the “cook” stuff a second slice of cheese into the cold burger. The Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper may have been a good burger if it was prepared hot so the cheese has a chance to melt into the burger at least a little, but this was just plain terrible. The cheese tastes like wax and that is all you can taste on this burger. I will not give this another try. See the photo from the in store poster for how this burger should have looked. I know that food never looks like the photo, but this is so far off the mark that I just had to share the photo.Burger King's Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper
For nutrition the Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper is 950 calories, has 48 grams of protein, 62 grams of fat, 58 grams of carbohydrates, 62 grams of fat, 135 mg of cholesterol and 1660 mg of sodium.

Angus CBO Sandwich from McDonald’s

Burger King's Wisconsin White Cheddar WhopperThe Angus CBO from McDonald’s is made with the 100% Angus Beef Third Pounder, two slices of White Cheddar Cheese, Bacon, Caramelized Onions and a Creamy Mustard Sauce. The burger is juicy (by fast food standards) and the bun was fresh. If you want a good tasting burger and are not worried about eating healthy for a meal then this is a good choice.

Health wise, at 790 Calories and 41 grams of fat the Angus CBO is the least healthy burger on the McDonald’s menu.  The Angus CBO also has 41 grams of fat, 62 grams of carbohydrates, 150 mg of cholesterol, 1830 mg of sodium and 45 grams of protein.

For the complete review please read my Review of the McDonald’s Angus CBO and Chicken CBO Sandwiches.

Summary

The Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper from Burger King fails on all levels. The Wisconsin White Cheddar cheese will not melt on a cold or even a warm burger. Second, there is no taste other than the cheese on this burger, and most important the nutrition values for this sandwich are off the charts as very unhealthy. At least if I am going to eat unhealthy I want something that tastes great.

For a better choice I recommend the McDonald’s Angus CBO sandwich. It has much more flavor and is worth the indulgence. The Angus CBO is not the healthiest burger out there but is much better, health wise than the Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper. The Angus CBO has 160 fewer calories than the Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper and 21 grams less of fat and 15 mg less of cholesterol. It does fair a little better but very close for carbohydrates with 3 grams less and with sodium of 170 mg less.
