    Dinner today was the new Loaded Steakhouse Burger from Burger King. This loaded version of the Steakhouse Burger consists of 100% Angus beef, crispy onions and bacon, and baked potato toppings.

    The promotional pictures of this burger will make your mouth water. Sadly, the real-life version does not look half as good. The Steakhouse Burger I got was sloppily built, with the meat almost escaping. Despite this, it tasted great. The potatoes and baked potato toppings were sparse, but they did add something to the overall flavor.

    This Burger King has a great location, but it’s a bit tricky to get to if you are not familiar with the area. It has an separate enclosed playground, so the kids can play to their hearts’ content without bothering the rest of the restaurant. The ambiance is nice, with colorful furniture and a well-maintained dining area.

    The service was also pleasant. The counter lady was very friendly and talked very fast, but she knew this and made sure to ask if we got what she said.

    The food took a bit of time to get ready, but I guess that’s the difference between Burger King and McDonald’s.

    Last thoughts: This Burger King will get you great food, great service, and a short waiting time because it’s rarely busy. I would keep this one on my list of places to go for a quick bite.

    Nice location but service is slow – really slow – and that is sometimes just annoying.

    Now they have the King deals again and that means a burger combo for 4.75 and it’s a different combo on special everyday.

    Good food, but man they are slow here!

    And double-check the total of your bill. It took our server 3 times before he got the prices right, and then he asked the staff in the back for 1 dollar bills!
