McDonald’s vs. Burger King

McDonald’s and Burger King have been competitors for the longest time now. People never know what place they want to go to because the menu items are very similar. These two fast food places are notoriously known for their burgers and fries. There are other items on the menu as well, and from time to time they will come out with something new to entice their customers with. Let’s explore some of their prices.

McDonald’s Prices

McDonald’s prices might seem a little cheaper than Burger King’s; however, they generally tend to be around the same price. But they have great burgers that will have you coming back for more! You can get their double cheeseburger for $5.95, and they also have the Triple cheeseburger for a dollar extra. If you are a hungry man and want to stuff your face with a juicy burger, then go for the Double Quarter Pounder. This is one of the biggest McDonald’s burgers they have. Here are a few more meals they have:

Burger King Prices

At Burger King, you can have a sandwich, burger, desserts, and plenty of foods filled with chicken or bacon.

They also have healthier alternatives such as the chicken wrap and their salad. You don’t have to eat unhealthy food when you are at a fast food chain, so they always include something that is good for your stomach. Some people prefer salads because they might have a sensitive stomach or want to lose some weight. Luckily, Burger King has a category for this.

Most people have $5 in their pocket and with this, they will head on over to Burger King to grab a bite to eat. This is usually for people who are extremely hungry and have not eaten in a few hours. They don’t feel like cooking because they want to eat something right away. Food preparation could take anywhere from 15 minutes to two hours when cooking at home. The best thing about Burger King is that you get your food in less than 5 minutes and can eat it right away – in your car! This is a wonderful alternative to cooking and since their prices are cheap, you can get anything you want. Here are some value Burger King menu prices:

For morning during the winter, why not go for the hot breakfast burrito? If you have not had anything to eat yet, just chow down on your way to work! All of their food will cost you $1.00 up to $8, which is insanely cheap. From time to time, they will add new items like the Mango smoothie, Molten Fudge Bites Sundae, Avocado & Swiss Whopper, and Stuffed Bacon Cheddar. Beware, though, because these items will only be around for a few months, depending on how well they do.

    1. Burger King and McDonald’s are pretty similar in terms of sodium usage in their foods. Depending on what types of food you buy, either could be healthier. I would recommend their grilled chicken sandwiches.

      I wouldn’t say one restaurant is better than the other as they both have huge menus.

    1. Thanks for commenting. As I wrote above, I think both restaurants have their ups and downs so I wouldn’t dismiss either one if you’ve had a bad experience.

      Just remember to look at healthy meals that both offer such as grilled chicken sandwiches, salads, and fish. Thanks!
