Whether you believe that the offerings of both of these companies does not constitute real food or you cannot pass one without drooling, one point that cannot be escaped is that they have outlets all over the place including SL!!

But which one is best? Is it the Flame Grilled Burger King beef or the Dill Pickle of McDonalds that floats your boat?
The fries are very different and for some Burgers the buns are very different. There is the Onion rings, the salad....oh and that VERY weird and seemingly out of place Filet O Fish. The Breakfast menus are very different, and then there is the shakes!! Getting Hungry Yet??
What about the wraps, or the Aberdeen Angus beef?? Well for me, it would have to be The Whopper from Burger King with Fries from Mcdonalds, Onion Rings and drink from Burger King (I can feel the pounds piling on) and lets wrap it up with a cream egg McFlurry!! Oh' and at this moment I am feeling a little hungry so I may have to just Go Large!!!
And just to give an idea of the nutritional value of these Gods of The Fast Food Burger lets compare their Flagship Burger:


Big Mac

  • Calories: 560 Calories from Fat: 270 (48%)
  • Protein: 25 grams
  • Cholesterol: 80 mg
  • Sodium: 1,010 mg
  • Total Carbs: 47 grams
  • Sugar: 25 grams
  • Total Fat: 30 grams
  • Saturated Fat: 10 grams
  • Trans Fat: 1.5 grams


Whopper with Cheese

  • Calories: 760 Calories from Fat: 420 (55%)
  • Protein: 33 grams
  • Cholesterol: 15 mg
  • Sodium: 1,450 mg
  • Total Carbs: 52 grams
  • Sugar: 11 grams
  • Total Fat: 47 grams
  • Saturated Fat: 16 grams
  • Trans Fat: 1.5 grams
The Whopper is the bigger burger by weight but also contains as a % more fat. Both however are not the recommended staple for those seeking to shed the pounds! However I am led to believe that the Restaurants in SL are serving Big Macs and Whoppers with 0% fat!!!
So, are you a fan or would you ban? Let us know who and what is your favourite, if you have one at all!!?

To finish, here are a few interesting facts about these fast food giants.

Burger King was started in 1954 in miami Florida.

In India the "Big Mac" is changed into the "Maharaja Mac", a mutton burger in deference to religious injunctions against the consumption of beef and pork.
