Made with lots of meat and almost too much bacon - if that were possible - the BACON KING™ sandwich is BURGER KING® restaurants' answer to voracious eaters who've worked up a major appetite and have zero interest in skimping out.

"We didn't hold back with the BACON KING™ sandwich," said Alex Macedo, President North America, Burger King Corporation. "Six strips of bacon, four slices of cheese and two big beefy flame-grilled patties. The BACON KING™ sandwich makes meat-lovers' dreams a reality. We know our guests are going to put this burger into heavy rotation."

This new permanent menu item is available at participating BURGER KING® restaurants nationwide at a recommended price of $5.99 for the sandwich and $7.99 as a small meal. For additional information, visit www.bk.com.
