    You are aware that they have vegetarian options, right? Hell, McDonald's has had vegetarian food ever since I was in primary school.

    Yeah, but you can't really compare McDonalds and Burger King based on a veggie burger and chips! Though if some vegetarians eat there, then of course, the other options are open to them.

    Erm Macdonalds 'veggie burger' was never actually vegetarian. It was made with vegetables but was cooked in meat fat. That is why it was never approved by the vegetarian society but the veggie burger in Burger King was. Also the bean burger in Burger King is also cooked in meat fat so is not approved.

    I voted for neither. I just could not bring myself to eat another morsel of food from either of them, knowing the cuts of meat they use and having visited American McDonalds that tell you about all of the fat and sodium content :mad:

    Last time I ate BK I was sick half an hour later, so if I had to choose, McD. McD provided sustenance on my interrailing trip when there was no other choice.

    I do like them equally. The Big King is nice and the QuarterPounder too.
    BK has the Angus though

    Haha, it's not really what I'd call food. But if I have an urge for rubbish, it's McDonalds. I don't really go to either very often.

    BK gave me chips that taste of bleach. So I don't go to that branch at all.

    I lived next to bk last academic year (just gone). Mcd's was a further 30metres down the road. BK is better, and the fat woman gave me free burgers.
