Click pic to view comments Fortnightly face-off: McDonald's vs Burger King
Posted: 15:42 Fri 10-10-2003.
Snackspot reports: Tesco may be the market leader, but our last debate again proved surprisingly even-handed regarding the merits of Sainsbury vs Tesco, with Sainsbury usually considered to have "better quality" products (especially bread), and Tesco generally praised for its cheaper, "wider range" (though obviously this depends on the size of the store). Anyway, with the latest mad Burger King product being advertised on the TV, it's time to consider yet another "clash of the titans": Which do you most prefer - McDonald's or Burger King?

...I don't want to influence anyone, but I've always thought Burger King burgers are better (and more expensive as a result), but I don't buy them as much as I might because I just can't stand their fries. Also, McDonald's breakfast options rock. Alternatively, do you believe that both companies are just as bad as each other, and that a new law should be brought in, like for pubs, where the person behind the counter would have to refuse to serve you if they felt you'd over-indulged, saying something like: I'm afraid it looks like you've had enough already, Sir - let's you call a cab and get you home.

Comment: I couldn't agree more about BK's fries!! Yuck. However, I do like their onion rings and the chunky fries. But when it comes down to the hard line I like McDs better. Nothing beats a Big Mac or Chix Nuggets or a Happy Meal. Also, I have had numerous friends recieve food poisoning from BK's when I lived in Canada. Also I think McD's is a much more innovative company.

Comment: Burger King's chips are furry. I really don't like them. I'm not a huge burger fan so I tend to judge these places on chips and desserts, in which case McDonald's wins hands down, if only because it has McFlurries. The Chocolate Orange and Starwberries & Dream ones were utterly gorgeous.

Comment: I agree with Snackspot BK are better burgers. I've gone off burgers for a while so tend to stick with McD's coz nuggets are both nice and reasonable value (BK's equivalent whilst nice, with a really good barbecue sauce are a total rip-off), also McD's used to do quite nice hotdogs (please don't tell me what was in them ;-) What I thought was strange was when I went to America where the BK I went to was appaling (gross food, bad service etc.), where as McD's was much like here (average all round) only their nuggets were much nicer (different coating?). As for this stupid obesity law thingy given that everything is toxic if you eat enough of it will supermarkets stop you from stocking up on cereal or mineral water ("sorry sir I can't sell you that as you may consume it in one go and kill yourself").

Comment: McDonalds burgers have no flavour!

Plus I sat in a McDs last week. It was like a drop-in centre for the homeless, disabled and unemployed. I felt dirty and cheap. And this was at prime time 7:30pm.

I'd also like to stand up for BK fries, which I find crispier and tastier than the soggier McDs variety.

Oh, and BK's shakes are better too, and you don't feel like you're somehow subsidising the existence of Justin Timberlake either.

Comment: Haven't eaten a McDonald's or BK in years, I now prefer my food to have texture and flavour so I hop along to my nearest Subway.

What I do remember about eating a Big Mac at McDs was not so much the taste of the burger while eating it but the horrible cheese, gerkin and lettuce burp I produced an hour later. I don't remember the burger tasting of much at all.

Comment: My brother told me that one US burger chain once ran a negative ad campaign against (American) branches of Burger King for "being British", and therefore "knowing nothing" (I'm paraphrasing here) about burger-making

Comment: And when Guiness merged with Grand Met they suddenly knew half as much about making Guiness?

Diago sold BK to a consortium of investment bankers in 2002 - those guys *know* how to flame grill.

Since the adverts ran at the height of the "Mad Cow" histeria, I imagine the commercial was attemting to associate BK with disease rather than buger-making ignorance.

Comment: Are you all mad? It doesn't matter how much better Burger King's burgers are, because they never have any of the bloody things. When was the last time you went to burger king and didn't have to wait for your order? Have you ever tried ordering a spicy beanburger - you'll be waiting for a few minutes at least, and it will be frozen in the middle. What about a milkshake? I can't remember the last time I went into a burger king and the milkshake machine wasn't "broken". Busy branches - Charing Cross in London comes to mind, but there are more - seriously water down the soft drinks. The food might be better, but the franchises are disorganised, the staff badly trained, and half the menu unavailable without a long wait.

Comment: And thats doubly damning when you bear in mind how limited the BK menu is these days. The only reason i used to go in there was for the "mushroom double swiss" burger... i havent seen a BK that sells them for ages now.

McD arent exactly the best food in the world - but they beat BK hands down in every department.

Comment: Well surely you know how to get served quickly in a fast food place - just see what burgers they've got waiting in the little metal chutes behind the counter (this sometimes adds to the fun when they've put a different product in the wrong box - "Oh, I don't care what it is, just give me one of those orange ones")

Otherwise - especially in BK - I think they microwave the meat part to heat it up again. Or, if you're in their flagship Piccadilly Cirucs branch, hold it up to one of the ultra-bright fluorescent lighting tubes, which probably has a similar effect (all the better to see the magnificent cartoon sci-fi wall mural by...)

Comment: BK - Foul chips, plasticky cheese, tasty burgers, lovely beanburger, terrible puddings & toys, basic cheeseburger is dry, I tend to order more than I can eat (fat sod!), onion rings are nice, surly staff.

McD - WIDE STRAWS!!! quarter-pounder is very nice, fillet of fish just disappears, Big Mac too dry, chips fine (not as nice as KFCs'), good deserts, very good kids toys and choice, generally good guest items, most importantly - the best breakfast menu.

Winner: McD by a nose.

Comment: It's difficult to beat a Double Whopper with Cheese and Bacon (aka XL Whopper these days I believe), and you actually get some decent lettuce and tomato on a Whopper, which is nice. I always found the Big Mac too dry (Quarter Pounders for me in McDonalds). On the other hand I prefer MaccyD's shakes and fries, and the service and quality control is much much better - it's well known that Burger King hires the people rejected by McDonalds (and that's saying something).

Comment: McDonalds is way better than Burger King.

People moan that the burgers are 'dry'... yes, that's because what makes Burger Kings burgers 'moist' is grease. If it's a bit dry then get a bit of extra cheese. Personally, I like it when the burger is slightly crispy round the edges. As for the fries, McDonalds win that one as well... and Diet Coke over Pepsi Max any day of the week. McNuggets are better than Chicken Bites... Chicken Premier is better than a Chicken Royal etc etc. Burger King have virtually no desert selection now whilst McDonalds continue to expand.

Best way to have a Big Mac is plain with Extra Cheese... what ever happened to the Mega Mac? Just a Big Mac... but four burgers instead of two. Also, my local McDonalds don't Supersize anymore... and what's this salad nonsense? I want to consume at least 5000 calories whilst just ordering 'one' meal... don't want to look greedy :-)

Comment: I think BK by far taste better.

Just eating a chicken club will make you go back wanting more. And for the person who agree that too much mayo is simply pure junk, thats cool, for it is only a McD that you can find all that much.

The fact remains that BK is way better than McDs and theres nothing wrong wid that. And get it clear that McD may be more popular, but not better k.

Comment: BK Food is much better than Mcd !

I enjoy the food at both Burger King and Mcdonalds but if I had to make a choice of a better tasting Burger or Chicken product it would have to be BK. Next time you go to Mcd and get a Big mac see if you can find the beef. Then taste the patty - you will be shocked to see how small and tasteless it is.

Posted: 03:48 Wed 15-Sep-2004 by "Devon" # permalink comment
Comment: Maybe things are different in the UK, but here in America, McDonalds beats Burger King. Polls tend to show BK in the lead by far, but sales (the way to poll honestly without social/psychological interferences) show McD in the lead, and rising almost 30 percent above BK in the past 16 years (Mcd up 20%, BK down 8-9%, or so says MSNBC). Let's be honest with ourselves. The media makes fast food look bad. Mcd is at the head of it all, and so it is the symbol for fast food. Thus all bad things heard of fast food are immediately related to McD. Then we search for them. We find bad things (which we would find many at BK if we looked as hard for them there too) and say "Yuck!", and finish our meal. Then we order the same thing again in a bit, say yuck, and finish our meal (there's bad things in all food; ex: soad has rat droppings, hot dogs have god knows what, burger meat has cartilage, ect). This way, we satisfy our media-oriented hate for fast food by insulting McD, and satisfy our better tastes by eating it again and again. We then look to the second best (though not for long: Wendys is about to get BK knocked down to third), as the media shows, and say, "that must be better" because it is the second most prominent burger shop in our minds. McD stays on top by ding the best they can, and BK stays second by copying McD (if you look through the past a bit you will see that this is true; professoinals say so anyway).

And on a side note, would the rest of you morons who keep telling us to "jesus give a break" at least take the time to make a coherent sentence before calling us stupid?

Anyway, a little long winded, but that last one should make it all worth it.

Comment: Maccy D's and BK are two different beasts. You go to Mcdonalds to deck a few cheap arse cheeseburgers, and you go to burger king when you get one of those tickets out of a pay-and-display machine that gives you a BOGOF deal on any type of whopper.

I saw a massive poster in BK Colchester saying that they stopped salting their chips cos people don't like it, but then they started stocking sachets of salt, pepper, even lo-salt.

I was in burger king the other day, and ordered 2 cheeseburger kids meals (one for me, one for a friend, we were poor that day), however, I got charged £7.04 for 2 cheeseburger meals, and for the priveledge I got more fries (which really AREN'T great) and possibly the worst tasting water i've ever had (it was dark brown, god know's what they put in their water these days..)

My Verdict: Get 2 Mc'd Double Cheeseburgers or a BK whopper meal at night time, when they have to specially cook them for you. Otherwise, the things sit there for hours. Once, my cheeseburgers had set to the paper with the sheer huge amount of grease, and I had to go swap them.

We should campaign for Wendy's in the UK, they rule by FAR.

Oh, and never eat in KFC... a friend of mine had a bad experience with a battered cist one time...

Comment: McDonalds have a more consistant product. I think this is down to their system of restaurant management.

Personally I prefer BK Burgers and Fries. However, McD seem to have more restaurants & better locations. Add to that a wider menu range and a more competitve pricing structure and McD's has to be the winner in my book.

I just wish they would put the sausage biscuit on the breakfast menu over here.

Comment: BK kills McDs before 11 am. You can buy their flagship Whopper. Simple.

Unfortunately after 11 am McDs wins hands down in the side orders. Forget salad cups and silly pitta things. The fries are McDs tour de force. I dunno what they made of but they kill BKs dry attempt at warm Chip Sticks.

Comment: upon working for burger king i know that our products are the best for the following reasons

1. It is impossible to water down any drinks as coca cola make the syrup bags tamper proof

2. The milkshake machine always breaks down because they are crap

3. You are always waiting for a spicy beanburger because no one buys them so there is no reason to hold one and they take 3.45 to cook plus it is impossible for it to be frozen in the middle in 185c cooking oil

4. We always run out of stock because burger king uk ltd tell us to order in a stupid way

5. Burger king have just spent millions of pounds on updating kitchens to the phase 1 platform to improve product quality and speedy service.

6. Are fries are always hot as they are discarded every 10 minutes and we do not salt them

7. Flame grilled is more healthier than fried burgers

8. We may not have a massive range of breakfasts but they taste 100% better than Mc Ds

9. All our orders are givent out in 3 mins or less

Comment: Well seems like Damon put a few people to rights!!!!!!!! Anyways gotta go with BK on this one, bearing in mind I'm a simple man who eats more or less the same thing every time a whopper or bacon double cheese burger (sometimes XL) and a diet coke, dont bother with desserts or milkshakes. BK's chips have been far better since they changed them about 1998ish IMO, although they do loose their taste appeal if not fresh, BK's burgers taste LIKE BURGERS! McD's fall short here, I do like McD's burgers (1/4 £er) but they don't taste like Beef, theyfall into their own food classification. Maccies prices are fairer than Bk's which I think nets them an awful lot of customers, especialy students, thier drive through service is shite in my area, orders always wrong. Read an article in a tabloid yesterday about McD's dropping the golden arch logo and their attempt to appeal to the starbucks generation, sure enough in my local rag this morniing theres coupon for fruit toast and bagals!! I think rupert Spurlocks documenrty really delt them a damaging blow, not before time aswell

Comment: McDonalds are cheaper than BK (and also taste better). Also note the prices of BurgerKing in the service stations, you hardly get change of £10 after purchasing a meal.

Comment: Come on people, McDonalds fries better than BK fries? What have you been smoking?

McDonalds Fries = soggy, tasteless, cold (usually) and over-salted.

BK Fries = hot (usually), cripsy, tasty, salt to own taste and supplied with real Heinz ketchup as opposed to McD's stuff.

Lots of my mates said they prefered McDs fries a while back but I have converted everyone of them to BK fries afer insisting they gave them another try.

Burgers at BK taste like real burgers. Nice falme-grilled, almost done on the barbeque taste.

Burgers at McDonalds taste of literally nothing. Don't get me wrong, they are delicious once you add the sauce, cheese, bun etc, but if you were to ask for a plain McDs burger in a bun with no sauce I promise no one would eat it.

To give them their due though, McDonalds have fantastic Milkshakes and deserts (although i never buy their deserts as the meal is unhealthy enough).

Overall, I really like my fast food and both mcDonalds and Burger Kind are great (and KFC). However, although Burger King are slightly dearer you are getting a quality product in my opinion. At McDonalds you get crap quality products which are covered up with tasty sauces full of sugar. Burger King, when all is said and done, make tastier, higher quality food, but sales are lower because it is dearer, has poorer advertising, has crap toys to attract kids etc. For food alone, BK wins hands down.

Comment: McDonalds is THE best fast food restaurant I've been to in North America (not including Quebec). They have delicious fries and the cheese burgers are so amazing and the service is fast and friendly. I eat there at least once a week. Burger King on the other is slow and the only thing thats even worth eating there are their burgers. Everything else is NASTY!..McDonalds wins this battle HANNDS DOWN!

Comment: right we get everything from our suppliers at 3663 that includes meat too. we put the meat through the broiler which flame grills it then we put the meat on hold on a timer. we then assemble the burger and put it in the microwave for a quick zap of life. the holding times and cleanliness of the kitchen was always a strong point. and going back to what was said early about us being polite. we get special training for that but god help those that piss us off!

Comment: I wonder if any of the people commenting or reading this actually knows how the animals are treated or what's in the meat and how its produced.http://www.kentuckyfriedcruelty.com has some very disturbing videos and I know its based on KFC but its the same prinicple seeing as there are chicken products at McD and BK which will be treated the same. This book (Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal) has loads of information on fast food and should definately be considered to read even if it is American. This is just one part of the book -

"In order to bulk up the cattle, these companies, feed their cows, cats, dogs, other cows, newspapers, chicken by-products, and a variety of other things. By doing this, the cows quickly bulk up, to be turned over much faster. The cats, dogs, and cows that are ground up and fed to the cattle, are generally ones that are mutated, have growth issues, retardation, and genetic disorders. They are generally ground up, fur on, bones and all, and fed to the cattle in a grain, newspaper, and meat mixture that is extremely low cost to the cattle farm as it's almost all product they picked up from recycling plants, leftovers from chicken farms, and from their own horrible breeding programs."

It's all true and it's no joke. Think about this the next time you walk into a McDonalds or Burger King.

I don't like the way they target young children and try to hook them for life with toys in happy meals. I prefer to eat 'real' burgers though. You guys should all try them , even posh restaurants serve them these days. Once you've tried the real thing, you won't want the fast food version!

Comment: Man, you are all going to die young. You know this.

I ate a BK last night, first time in over 2 months, no fries, no drink - and still felt bloated as hell afterwards. But that's it, I quit, forever (it was pretty crap anyway, and tasted burnt and greasy) It just was not worth it.

As I said, if you eat these things on a regular basis you ARE going to die young. Burgers today are like cigarettes of the 1950's. Food like this will be banned within 20-30 years, when we see the long term effects. So, enjoy it while you can ;o)

Comment: The reason I stopped eating McDonald's was in September 2005.

The university collage's cooker had died and it was up to me to save all the hungry, sad (in the literal term) and decaying students from certain insanity.

I ran to Manchesters' nearest Maccy Don's, with a measly £250 in my right pocket and a tube of Smarties, a whistle and a 5 year old train ticket (answers on a postcard please). I ordered some 100- odd Big Macs and after what seemed like 7 minutes, I was given them and, hero like, I rushed out and back into Mancs' grandest university.

While the students snacked on the burgers, I discovered mine still had some frost on it. (Leftover frost from when they were thawing them out).

So that explains quite a lot. Luckily, I never became ill!

Comment: no doubt, mcd's is really nice but bk for me is the nicer, even though more expensive. i much prefer the fries, i think mcd's salt the fries too much, bk's menu is more limited but mcd's food is always a struggle if you want the option of something without a certain addition e.g lettuce or something. although i have to give mcd's for not being tight with the sauces, i hate it in bk when i have to ask for ketchup and stuff, at least in mcd's sauce is on tap. both chains have pro's and con's but when it comes to my personal preference..........bk everytime!

Comment: I ate at Burger King last night. It was utterly foul. The chips tasted like they had been dipped in industrial effluent. The bun was soggy with mayo, limp and squashed flat in several places. The 'lettuce' was the consistency of green pus. I nearly vomited. Threw it all away. Gross, gross, gross. And that 'meal deal' cost me over a fiver at a service station outlet.

MacDonalds is not only better-tasting, but far cheaper too.

Comment: I am a BK Restaurant Manager and I belive Burger King food is much higher quality and, without doubt, more filling. The problem with us is consistency: a big mac always tastes the same - always "ok", never great, rarely bad. A whopper made well is second to none - unfortunately, 1 in every 4 probably isn't to standard which is a big issue. Also, in response to those complaining of there never being any sandwiches ready in a BK restaurant, the reason is this: we will always get complaints for one of 2 reasons; (1) slow service, (2) crap products. We prefer the slow service as at least you should receive decent food. Burger King is currently moving towards "Made To Order" - eventually everything will be freshly prepared to order - currently this applies to all Whopper products and Angus (don't be put off by the price of this - it is a great tasting product) products - eventually all BK sandwiches/burgers (whatever) will be MTO. And fianally, if I was a paying customer, I would eat at BK over McDonalds but I would get pissed at the waiting times that sometimes occur!

Comment: Definitely BK all the way for me - too many inedible meals from McD over the years. Gotta admit McD wins on the sauces, but then they need good sauces to hide the taste of the rest.

Comment: As a savy life-long consumer for both of these notable Fast Food Restaurants I must objectively say that Burger King burgers are more delightable soley because they are flame grilled. Nonetheless, I believe that is the only upper hand they have against McDonalds. McDonalds french fries are known world-wide and thier chicken products, be it thier Premium Sandwiches, Salads, Selects, or Nuggets are phenominal. Burger has changed thier recipe and preparation for thier french fried numerous amounts of times and yet still are inferior to McDonald's. Furthermore, McDonlads customer service and overall food quality overrides that of Burger King. McDonalds also offers a wider range of food products including more healthier chocies than that of it's competitor and a more delightable breakfast menu. McDonalds also prizes itself on giving back to the community [Ronald McDonald Charities] and paying special close attention to our youth, hence the infamous 'Happy Meal Experience'. In conclusion, one may deem evident that McDonalds is truly better than Burger King.

Comment: WTH do BK dip their fries in - it's like having a mouthful of powder afterwards.

And the only decent sandwich there is the Angus - I'm fed up of the "flame grilled 20 mins ago then microwaved to seem fresh" taste of the once-all-conquering-but-now-just-crap Bacon Double Cheese.

Comment: I prefered BK a few ago, there were always more expsensive but you got a serious burger they seem to have got smaller and cheaper to compete with McD's where as if you wanted summet smaller then McD's was a good choice, But i gotta say im a big build lad(not fat) an i prefer a great big flamed grilled double whopper, and the fries are much better at BK's.Besides ive worked (at!) McD's and seen what goes on. im sure BK is the same but i havent seen it or done it.

Comment: bk needs to invest more money, mediocre doesn't reward, if bk spent more money and expanded the menu, cut waiting time and just generally opened up in more places it would beat mcd's hands down.............maybe a price decrease is in order but still...............- .... i live in hungary and there is a mcd's on every corner but there is only 2 bk's in the entire country ...............- .i think i made my point!!!!

Comment: I actually like most things about BK, I always preferred their fries and found their burgers to have more taste of actual meat... weird to think about such things I know.

My main gripe with McDonald's is that their bread, to me, isn't as much bread as a derivative of those packing foam shapes.

So with inferior fries and bread that ruins most meals, (which I for some reason remember as being measily in comarion to BK fillings as well, probably just opinion affecting that bit though.) It's BK all the way for me.

But if, and when I do, have the choice, I always go KFC - best fries of the three and love chicken.

To throw an extra spanner in there, I've been to McDonalds at least twice as much as I have BK in recent times (since I more or less stopped getting fast food anyway)

Comment: Oh and when I did go (was taken to) McD's the weekend before last, I asked for Salad with my Chicken Legend meal and she "typed in" fries.

And then the guy putting the orders together on the trays (it was a busy evening in Meadowhall) obviously got me fries, so I told him I wanted salad, and he said I would have to queue to buy one, and then chuffed off to go and get some more orders.

Yes, I did eat the fries :(

Comment: hey, this might sound silly to most, but in england they just advertised a burger ( mcdonalds) called double quarter pounder with cheese. it is the same as a normal quarter pounder with cheese, just 2 1/8 pounder burgers and an extra slice of cheese. this is more expensive also. now, i'm not fat idiot, but i think this is nothing more than a marketing gimmet, and a piss take!!!

Comment: You guy really should stop eating the junk food. No wonder your all chubby. I passed this website looking for the health implications of eating this crap. Hey i know its addictive ive been there in fact i worked for both burger king and mcdonalds as a child. Mcdonalds being by far the better employer. None of the staff were idiots a few were foreign but they just worked in the kitchen. I never ever saw anyone spit in a burger but BK had a lot that went on that im sure the health borad would be interested in. Always due to the franchising. The 2 idiots above i doubt would ven get a job their. Anyway back to the start. This shit will kill you!!!!. Dont eat it. Except maybe when your wasted and its the only thing open except for a rancid kebab. xxxx love guys

Comment: junk food is fine in moderation, but i'm sick of all these wombles telling me i shouldn't eat junk food, smoke or drive a car...........these idiots are complete f****** prats. i'm sick of these campaigns lauched by governments about this, they say they're trying to save money on the nhs, when smoking, driving cars (tax, congestion charge, alcohol pays for this. just a fucking political joke. we all pay tax, even tax on the tax you already pay, then national insurance, but if i smoke and get cancer, i won't get treatment because of it...........what a load of shit. i'm sorry but the uk is a load of shit. but we can send benefits to polish families living in poland. but if i eat 2 mcdonalds meals i'm labelled as obese, and cannot get treatment for a cold coz i ate mcdonalds and smoked a cigarette, so my tax and national insurance goes to poland and drug addicts and i get fuck all.

Recently I made a valid complaint to McDonalds customer services dept. about McDonalds poor standards at [SPECIFIC LOCATION DELETED]. The complaint concerned slow service, abrasive attitudes, and matters about unacceptable hygeine standards.

The complaint was passed on to the store by customer services, following which the store's manager, [NAME DELETED], promptly banned me from the store. He did not deny that my complaint was valid, but was told that I was banned simply becauseI I had made the complaint in the first place. Their management team consists entirely of immigrants, having come here on dodgy visas and the like, and all of which in favour of my ban, which shows how much we are now under the control of illegal immigrants.

Perhaps this is consistent with McDonalds training practices. It would appear that you have to accept their adverse practices without question or suffer the consequences, as I myself did.

Comment: If any, regardelss of the way they treat their chicken, I'd prefer KFC. However, I MUST rate Burgr King the least among Fast Food Outlets. They're mostly not all the same, but having worked in one, I can say the Health and Safety issues are amazingly high. So, out of the two in discussion, I'd choose McDonalds.

Comment: i love all fast food. amazingly, i am not over weight and i do go to the gym (not claiming olympic physique or fitness but trim enough). i think basically to all these tossers out there, you know who you are environmentalists, people who are vegetarians/vegans and generally from another planet, the type of people who say things like killing animals for food is wrong......please GO TELL THE TIGERS THAT!!! anyway point being fast food is fine provided it isn't taken too far. don't wanna claim to be a martyr, but i will never go out of my way to go to a fast food outlet but if i'm hungry and there is a fast food outlet on my way to where i'm going then i'll stop for a bite. to me this is fine.(providing there isn't one on your way to work).
