    Great if this hasn't been done before...? (sure it has at some point but yeah)

    I don't just prefer one over the other completely, I find

    . Burger King generally has the better and more awesome burgers and their hot chips taste heavenly, I like how they're so different from Mcdonalds or KFC chips - BK, BK

    . Pretty equal on drinks :indiff: - MCD/BK

    . but I think Mcdonalds has more range - chicken meals, hamburgers, more breakfast options, apple pies etc - MCD

    . Mcdonalds is also cheaper than Burger King which is again good. (Some BK meals and burgers are so overpriced it's comical) - MCD

    . Appearance - generally Mcdonalds is hit and miss imo, you get the rare, rare meals that look exactly like they're advertised but most times it isn't but Burger King I've found generally always looks like how it's advertised - BK

    . Consistency - How often do you get meals from Mcdonalds that just doesn't taste that nice for some reason and or puts you off from eating there for a while? Could happen at BK too but it never does, Mcdonalds is again hit and miss for that so that goes to Burger King - BK

    So that's like... BK for me, just from that. I don't eat there as much tbh but I'd say I prefer their food

    Mcdonalds - 3

    Burger King - 5

    A lot of stuff is bolded. I know

    almost all of my friends have contracted food poisoning from burger king at some point in their life. Mcdonalds wins over BK anyday. KFC is a lot nicer though.

    Burger King's fries are heavenly in Birmingham but fairly gross in other places. McDs, please!

    There aren't any Burger Kings near me, the closest is probably at Manchester Airport :|
    Their XL Bacon Double super duper duper burger (or something like that) is pretty good though, but so is the Big Tasty, and Mcdonalds apple pies are :drool:

    However I do prefer dead chickens, and like my chips with less salt and more potato (but I have no idea what BK chips taste like) so KFC beats both
    also I prefer pepsi to coke, but that doesn't actually matter

    If I really really had to choose, I would pick Maccy Ds. Burger King burgers are the overpriced low quality **** and their choice of toppings is just foul. Who the **** puts lettuce and mayo on a burger? Seriously :facepalm2:

    I used to prefer Burger King, but I had pretty gross fillet chicken from there yesterday where the texture felt like it wasn't cooked even though it was and the chips aren't as nice as Mcdonalds. Mcdonalds have better chicken fillet burgers, but worse normal burgers than burger king, but better chips.

    I do like BK over McDonalds. As epic as the burgers are at BK, they lack sauce. The staff have not been trained well either. Can do with milkshakes and better deserts too. BK fries are epic though. So is the XL Double Bacon Cheeseburger.

    Absolutely this. I personally think at pinnacle level (ie, the best Burger King and best McDonalds I've ever had) the Burger King meal was far superior/tastier, but in terms of consistency, McDonalds tends to be far more reliable, varying far less. I've had some phenomenal BK burgers and fries, and some abominable ones, but far less variation in quality from McDonalds.

    Swings and Roundabouts.

    BK is expensive for what it is, their burgers are soggy and their chips aren't a patch on McDs!

    It's perfectly acceptable




    In general, I think Maccy Ds is way better. Burger King is so overpriced it unreal--once, I even cancelled an order in favour of the McDonalds next door

    Has anyone noticed McDonalds employ British people but BK/KFC staff are nearly always foreign?
