Burger King has pulled out the big guns in the continuation of the fast food breakfast wars. In an effort to compete with McDonald’s and Taco Bell, Burger King is now offering a “Burgers at Breakfast” menu which will be available starting at 7 a.m., and will feature a variety of the burger chain’s popular Whoppers and other sandwiches like the Original Chicken Sandwich. Approximately 5,000 Burger King’s across the United States have agreed to the new breakfast menu and will begin rolling out the meaty morning options soon.
“The new menu allows guests to start their day being their way," said a Burger King representative in a statement. "Either with the great flame-broiled taste of our signature burgers and sandwiches or with our delicious suite of breakfast offerings."
The menu is likely to create buzz amongst the new Waffle Taco and AM Crunchwrap offerings on Taco Bell’s menu, just unveiled earlier this spring.
