Home sick from work and not feeling so fantastic. I am watching TV with one eye open and the BK commercial with the sweet potato fries and Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork sandwich catch my eye. No less that 5 minutes later I am in the BK drive-thru, PJ's and all, excited and hoping this impulsive fat food adventure make me feel a little bit better.
I ordered just what I saw on the telly, along with a Cinnabon because, why not? If I'm going to be a piggy I am going to go all out. (The portion of fries looks skimpy b/c I couldn't resist the whole 2 block drive back to my house. And I caught a red light...)
The Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork sandwich was ridic! Bun was warm, soft, fresh. Pork was tender, saucy and tangy. There was another sauce on there that tasted like a honey mustard of sorts... I didn't care for it and will opt out next time. Yes, there will be a next time. This exceeded my (incredibly low) expectations for a fast food joint sandwich.
The fries were perfection. Pure crispy perfection. Seriously, some of the best sweet potato fries ever, and I know my sweet potato fries.
The Cinnabon was smushed and ugly, so I didn't bother to snap a pic. But I did devour it in about 2 bites, so it was pretty good. A little stale, but not too terrible.
Check out the menu below.
Also on the new summer menu but not on this flyer is their Bacon Sundae, which has a lot to live up to in this girl's book after coming face to face with the ultimate bacon sundae during my trip to NOLA. Nice job BK! Way to live on the edge. You got me to break one of my rules (no fast food joints!) and actually enjoy it.
