Sandwiches in Review: Burger King’s Steakhouse XT Line

July 6, 2010

Before we get started, I’d like to thank my aunt for her generosity in helping to fund Sandwichtalk.  Thanks Aunt Kathy!!!

Burger King has always favored larger, more expensive burgers and combos, and their latest line is no exception.  The Steakhouse XT (short for “extra thick”)  Burgers feature a huge, 7 oz. patty and a number of “Steakhouse” accoutrements (like the Arby’s Steakhouse Sub, these sandwiches don’t seem to understand that steak is a specific kind of meat, as opposed to a meaningless adjective).  There are several to choose from, but I settled on the Smoky Cheddar, given that it’s a Limited Time Offer.

EXTRA THICK

The sandwich does live up to its “extra thick” moniker.  The patty is enormous, with a seasoning that adds an interesting, almost steak-like flavor.  The cheese and bacon are fine, as is the A1 sauce.  A lot of the sandwich is made up of the lettuce and tomatoes, which are piled high.  It’s tasty, but definitely a mouthful.  Don’t order it without a pretty big appetite.

The combo costs about $6.50, with the other XTs being comparably priced.  It’s actually pretty reasonable given just how much food you’re getting.  I’d recommend this burger, but not to the faint of heart (or stomach).

P.S.  Not entirely sandwich-related, but Burger King is running their 50/50 scratch off contest again, this time with a Twilight theme.  This contest is quite the deal, in terms of getting free drinks, cheeseburgers, and other value menu items.  I’d highly recommend checking it out.
