Kings versus Clowns

Kings versus Clowns

Angelo ODorisio, Staff Writer

It is time folks for another food review your residential big guy Angelo O’Dorisio. This time we will be going over the best fast food burger between the two giants of the industry, Burger King and McDonalds.

Fast food is the staple of American culture and food.

First up we have McDonald’s. McDonald’s, Micky D’s, Don’s. This fast food titan has been around since it was founded in 1955 in San Bernardino, California by  Ray Kroc, Richard and Maurice McDonald. Ever since then the McDonald’s, headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, has prided themselves in fast, affordable, high quality food that you can get on your way to work or to get a quick meal for the family.

McDonald’s staple food on their menu is got to be the McDonalds Big Mac. The ingredients in this American Classic are the fresh Big Mac Bun topped with sesame seeds, the 100% all beef patty, freshly shredded lettuce, secret ‘Big Mac Sauce’, pasteurized process American cheese, onions, and pickles.

With more than 1.5 million sold each day, the Big Mac is the headlining food for the McDonald’s organization.

For my review of this American classic I give it a 6.7 out of ten. The sauce and cheese were the highlights, the meat was a bit dry and skinny, the bun was very soggy and was falling apart. The pickles and onions in any burger are gross. All in all I would eat again but not over chicken nuggets.

With over 13 thousand locations in the US alone, the McDonalds company has been an Icon of American consumerism. But another fast food burger place soon began to rival McDonalds hold over the fast food burger industry.

Burger King which was opened one year before McDonalds in 1954 in a Miami, Florida by David Edgert and James McLamore. Now in

2022 Burger King has over 7 thousand locations in the US alone.

The burger that Burger King is best known for has got to be the whopper. The whopper is much like the big mac the only difference being no secret sauce.

For the review of the Whopper I have to give it a 7.8 out of ten. Unlike the Big Mac the patty on the Whopper was juicy and a good enough size.

So in a head to head matchup, soley based on burger on burger. No fries. I would say based on taste it would be the Whopper, the superior meat patty gave it the edge. But I will say, McDonalds was faster to get me my food.
