Last Updated on April 21, 2023 by Shari Mason

Burger King restaurants are known for their delicious burgers and a wide selection of menu items.

The good news is that some of the best Burger King items are healthier than you think. Check out our list of the best Burger King items we’ve tried and ranked.

Let’s get started.

Top 15 Burger King Menu Items To Try (Tried & Ranked)

15. Caramel Sundae

Caramel Sundae on a Cup

Average Price: around $2.59

Why We Like It: The calm, Creamy Caramel sundae is one of the healthier dessert alternatives from the Burger King menu at 240 calories and 5 grams of fat. [1]

The only items with fewer calories and fat grams are essential vanilla ice cream in a cup or cone. Your sweet tooth will also love the sweet blend of caramel and vanilla.

14. Triple Whopper

Hand Holding Burger King Triple Whopper

Average Price: around $10.09

Why We Like It: We also like the three fire-grilled quarter-pound patties of Triple Whopper. It also has an American cheese slice, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, thinly sliced onion, ketchup, mayonnaise, and a sesame seed bun.

However, when three flame-grilled quarter-pound patties are stacked on top of one another, the lettuce, onions, pickles, and tomato are over-shadowed.

13. Big King XL

Average Price: around $5.99

Why We Like It: We like the meaty 1,006 calories and 1/2-pound pork offering of Big King XL.

Adding the Stacker Sauce to Big King XL gives it a standard “secret sauce” cuisine, an excellent, unexpected savory taste of celery and rosemary.

12. Chicken Fries

Burger King Chicken Fries

Average Price: around $5.69

Why We Like It: The breading on the Chicken Fries is excellent, which is great because they have a superb breading-to-chicken ratio.

The long design of chicken fries makes them a joy for the dipping sauce. Let’s not forget how comical that container is, either. It is best to pair it with Burger King’s cheesy tots.

11. Bacon, Sausage, Egg & Cheese Biscuit

Bacon, Sausage, Egg & Cheese Biscuit on a Wooden Board

Average Price: around $4.99

Why We Like It: We like the generous quantity of cheese sandwiched between the ingredients of this biscuit. You can also add black forest ham to the sausage, egg, and buttermilk biscuit for extra joy.

10. Hamburger

Hand Holding Burger

Average Price: around $1.99

Why We Like It: We like the traditional way of cooking the smoky, meaty flavor of the all-beef patty of this Burger King Hamburger. The ketchup, mustard, and a pickle inside the sesame bun make it satisfying to chomp at.

Compared to Burger King’s other sandwiches, this is significantly easier to incorporate into most people’s diets at only 250 calories and 10 grams of fat, unlike the Spicy Chicken Jr with 450 calories.

9. Double Quarter Pounder King

Average Price: around $7.99

Why We Like It: The two flame-grilled patties add flavor to the delicious burger. On bread made of lightly toasted sesame seeds, the sandwich includes two slices of American cheese, onions, ketchup, and pickles.

However, this Burger King menu item has been unavailable for quite a long time, which is a bummer for burger lovers.

8. Chicken Nuggets

Average Price: around $2.29

Why We Like It: The bite-sized Burger King chicken nuggets are lightly breaded and coated in homestyle seasonings, then fried until golden brown and juicy.

Burger King’s chicken nuggets come in four packs, so you can get one order as a 192-calorie snack or buy two to replace a crispy chicken sandwich. It’s also similar to the nuggets of other fast food chains, but not as good.

7. Bacon King

Burger King Bacon King

Average Price: around $10.29

Why We Like It: We enjoy the sesame seed bun topped with two flame-grilled quarter-pound burger patties. The two pieces of melted cheese, thick slices of smoked bacon, mayonnaise, and smoky BBQ sauce made it a tasty bacon cheeseburger similar to the rodeo burger on Burger King’s menu.

Note: Your Bacon King meal will contain over 3,000 calories if you also order a big beverage and a large french fries.

6. Onion Rings

BURGERKING STYLE ONION RINGS

Average Price: around $2.19 to $3.99

Why We Like It: We liked that these deep-fried crunchy rings taste like real onions even though they are not made of sliced onions.

The onion component of the ring is presented in the form of an artificial-tasting paste, with the crunchy breading serving as the main attraction. [2]

5. Whopper

Burger King Whiooper on a Wooden Board

Average Price: around $8.29

Why We Like It: We like the grilled quarter-pound beef patty topped with tomato, lettuce, mayonnaise, pickles, ketchup, and onion slices.

You can order the Whopper without any of those extras and add crispy bacon and cheese for an additional charge.

4. Impossible Whopper

Average Price: around $8.99

Why We Like It: Burger King’s Impossible Whopper is vegetarian. However, vegans must have it without mayonnaise because it contains eggs.

It’s somewhat healthier than other burgers but excellent for meat-free or low-meat eaters.According to Impossible Foods, the only problem is that the burger patties are cooked on the same grill as beef burgers. [3]

3. Double Stacker King 

Hand Holding Burger King Double Stacker King 

Average Price: around $6.89

Why We Like It: The Double Stacker King includes a unique Stacker Sauce. The main flavors are mayonnaise, ketchup, and pickle relish, with undertones of celery and herbs.

This sandwich is made with two quarter-pound patties that have been flame-grilled, melted American cheese, and plenty of sauce.

2. Original Chicken Sandwich

Average Price: around $8.29

Why We Like It: Because of the lengthy sesame seed bun, this original chicken sandwich differs from other fast-food chicken selections.

To let the taste of the lightly breaded white-meat chicken patty stand out, only lettuce and mayonnaise are added to the oblong bun.

1. Double Whopper

Average Price: around $9.49

Why We Like It: We love the soft sesame seed bun, two-quarter-pound all-beef patties, lettuce, tomato, onion slices, ketchup, pickles, and mayonnaise.

“Food is not rational. Food is culture, habit, craving, and identity.”

– Jonathan Safran Foer, American Novelist

The Whoppers are among the best Burger King items, and those with lower appetites may always get one and share it rather than get two.
