Burger King Grabs at Straws, Stuffs Its Steakhouse Burger
Burger King has tried all sorts of strategies and gimmicks to compete with its relentlessly successful Golden Arched rival, from sexual innuendo to actually rather edible special menu options to (God help us) brunch. Its latest effort is a cheddar-cheese-and-jalapeño-stuffed burger, pictured at left. Whether those green and yellow chunks folded right into the patty will make you blow yours remains to be seen. For now, Nation's Restaurant News is reporting that the BK Stuffed Steakhouse Burger, part of the chain's premium line of Steakhouse XT burgers, will be priced at $3.99 and available at participating restaurants through mid-February.
