How many ways can one eat a burger? According to Burger King, the customer should have several choices. Their newest burger is in the form of a hoagie. The popular fast food chain announced today that there will be a BBQ cheeseburger, and instead of laying all of that greasy fun on a regular seed bun, everything will be put on an extra long hoagie.
Burger King has announced that they have decided to put out an Extra Long BBQ Cheeseburger just in time for the sweltering summer. The first to push the news was a Miami-based chain, which detailed the hoagie in full.
According to the press release, the new hoagie burger will feature two 100 percent beef burger patties, which are then placed side-by-side, resting on a toasted hoagie bun. Here’s the real kicker; the hoagie is also topped with American cheese, onion rings, and BBQ sauce for an explosion of flavors.
The item is now featured on Burger King’s menu and is available for a very reasonable $3.59. In addition, the tasty item is also on the two for $5 menu, so be sure to bring a friend.
This item is the first new product that Burger King has promoted for the summer season. The last item we heard about was the Rodeo Chicken Sandwich, which was a take off on the Rodeo Cheeseburger. The Rodeo Chicken Sandwich was announced back in January, and according to the official statement, it features, “deliciously crisp chicken, sweet and spicy BBQ sauce and crispy onion rings served on a toasted sesame seed bun.”
Burger King’s Rodeo Chicken Sandwich is a bit cheaper than the Extra Long BBQ Cheeseburger as it’s being offered for just $1.00, but then again, it sounds like the newest item on the menu is twice the fun for a customer’s mouth and well worth the price, just going by the size of the hoagie.
As you might have guessed, some grumpy people aren’t impressed with Burger King’s new announcement:
