Burger King says it will start offering a “French Fry Burger” for a buck, as it looks to fend off McDonald’s aggressive push for its Dollar Menu. …

The burger, which clocks in at 360 calories and 19 grams of fat, is a relatively novel offering but doesn’t require any extra investment from Burger King; it’s basically a standard beef patty topped with four of the chain’s french fries. …

they could have topped it wit an onion ring which would have been a better idea

So they take a simple burger, that costs less than a buck, put some french fries on it and sell it for a buck?

dumb

Indeed! The onion ring is a much better compliment to a burger.

One of the best New Orleans po boys you can get is a French fried potato with debris gravy. Crispy French bread piled with French fries, doused with the gravy roast beef has been cooking in all day( with beef bits in it). Dressed with lettuce, tomato and mayo or plain it is incredible.

Why not just put a lettuce leaf on top and sell it for a buck save a few grams of fat?

Have you tasted the things that Burger King calls onion rings? Their nasty, rubbery, tasteless globs of greasy dough.

The fries, which are also rather poor imitations, would still be better.

When I read the title, I thought maybe they were coming up with their own version of the British chip butty: buttered bread, fries, topped with ketchup or brown sauce (mixture of ketchup and Worcestershire sauce.)

My experience with BK is that they often become very “creative” in sandwich choices. They used to sell a Veggie Burger, a soy bean deal which I would get sometimes on days that I abstain from meat. One day I pulled into the drive-thru and placed my order and the voice said, “You mean a Veggie Whopper?”
“Yes, I guess so.”
I got home to find a bun with lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, and sauce — and no patty.

yeah, now that I think of it

I have not had their rings in 20 years because of that.

they need to eliminate that from their menu and get some REAL onion rings

Out here in Western PA, they put french fries on EVERYTHING... I mean even frikken SALAD has french fries on it to crying out loud. They call it "Pittsburgh Style"... because out here, you know, 3 hours northeast from Pittsburgh, it's still "Steelers Country" and, of course, everything about Pittsburgh and/or the Steelers is just precious beyond precious.

They already had a “western” burger with an onion ring and some barbecue sauce, I think.

360 calories looks like the perfect lunch for someone like me who counts caloric intake*

to stay at my svelte 220(and dropping) 6’5” instead of the 257 I was 3 months ago

low cal burgers are perfect keep going food for someone like me who works all the time

or a bag of jerky

That would taste good but they are pushing the limits of their imagination as it is.
