MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BURGER KING® restaurants is flame-grilling the competition with a new sandwich that has 175% more beef than the Big Mac. Introducing the BIG KING XL sandwich, featuring more than 1/2 lb** of flame-grilled 100% beef, topped with melted American cheese, sliced onions, zesty pickles, crisp lettuce and our special savory sauce all on a toasted sesame bun.
Available at restaurants nationwide and starting today, the BIG KING XL sandwich will make guests want to swap their bread for beef—literally.
On January 18, guests can bring their expired MacCoins to select BURGER KING® restaurants in Chicago, IL to exchange them for a free BIG KING XL sandwich***.
