New Burger King Low Fat Baguette Sandwiches

Dec 15, 2003
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Making less fattening sandwiches and salads available.

Cons:It's still Burger King

The Bottom Line: If you're stuck needing to eat somewhere, BK now has healthier alternatives available. Better than McDonald's, not as good as Subway or Wendy's.


I have successfully lost and am maintaining my goal weight by following the Weight Watchers plan (please see my review "This Really Can Work," Opinion on Weight Watchers Winning Points). This means I usually do not grab a bite at Burger King or McDonald's and look for a Subway instead. On a recent outing, however, my teen daughter had a craving for BK Onion Rings. I had a coupon to try one of BK's new Fire Grilled Chicken Baguette sandwiches, so off we went.

I thought the sandwich was going to be on the small side, but it a nice, generous portion. The lettuce on it, while iceburg, was fresh and crunchy. The chicken had a pleasant, grilled taste and was moist. Having eaten my fill of BK and McD grilled chicken sandwiches that were dry as a shoe sole I found this a most pleasant surprise. The mustard sauce was delicious and flavorful. And the baguette tasted nice and fresh and was soft, with a pleasant texture that worked well in the sandwich as a whole. According to Burger King the sandwich has 5 grams of fat; very reasonable.

I treated myself to an order of fries. I dislike that the smallest available size is "medium" and that the medium is larger than the large was when I was a kid. I tossed half the fries on the way to the table to avoid eating them absent-mindedly. I would have preferred to a choice of a true "small" order of fries.

Daughter enjoyed her onion rings and having had a late breakfast, did not want a full lunch. She also ordered a Diet Coke.

Prices vary in your location, a value meal of the sandwich, fries and Diet Coke, had I not had a coupon, would have been approx. $4.50; a reasonable price for the meal. I think the Onion Rings were about a buck.

The restaurant, located in Burke, Va., looked old and shabby. It was not well-kept and there was considerable paper litter around the seating area. I did not use the restroom.
