BURGER OFF – BURGER KING!

Well, burger me, is something fishy going on at the king of fast food?

Burger King, home of the Whopper, is accused of actually serving a tiddler to customers who order fish sandwiches.

Andrea Dylan, from Wolverhampton, was flying out to Lisbon, Portugal, when she decided to have a bite at Birmingham Airport as she waited to board her flight.

“A bite to eat –  that’s exactly what I got! It was more or less gone in a bite…

“And it looked like three small fish fingers on a small sesame bun with a bit of salad and a squirt of sauce … I was shocked, because it had cost me £6.99p.”

The average price of a supermarket fish finger is about 20p, a three-inch bun is about 10p and a bit of salad and sauce another 10p​.

“That’s about 50p, so what happened to the other £6.49p?” Andrea, aged 44, asked.

Burger King describes the Fish King as ‘crispy, golden breaded fish fingers, big King sauce and fresh lettuce all served up on a sesame seed bun. One bite and you’re hooked …”

Well actually, Burger King, Andrea said ‘one bite and it’s gone!’

We contacted the fast food giant for comment and are still waiting for a response.

Burger King came in to being 61 years ago and has been battling for the fast food crown with megalith McDonalds for decades.

  1. I had exactly the same experience at Birmingham airport Burger King. A King Fish as they call it, was expecting a thick piece of fish fillet and got about three fish fingers in a bun. I was disgusted and felt cheated out of 6.99. I complained through their website and got the following response.
