Burger King’s first new menu item of 2019 is the revamped Big King Sandwich – now known as the Big King XL.
Story continues below
The Big King XL features a pair of quarter-pound flame-grilled beef patties, American cheese, thick-cut sliced onions, lettuce, pickles and special Stacker sauce on a lightly toasted sesame seed bun. It’s basically a reimagined version of the now discontinued Big King Sandwich, which featured a three-layer sesame seed bun and a Thousand Island-style dressing. It was basically Burger King’s answer to the Big Mac. The Big King went through a variety of changes during its initial run and was finally discontinued in the US in 2017. Until now.
While the Big King XL is “new” to the US market, it has been available outside of the US in international markets for several years, including the UK, parts of Europe, South Africa, South America, Mexico and more.
YouTube reviewer Ian Keiner (Peep This Out) picked up a Big King XL Sandwich at his local Burger King in Southern California for $6.19.
But does the new Big King XL give the Big Mac a run for the money? You can check out Ian’s complete review below for all the “special” saucy details:
