Testing out Burger King’s delivery service

As a service to humanity, no need to thank me (unless you want to), I decided to test out Burger King's delivery service through their website. What's that? You didn't know that you can have a tasty cheeseburger delivered to your domicile or place of employment?


Go to and enter your zip code in the box. They'll check it against their datin' base to see if you're in their coverage area. For me at the Spokesman (zipcode 99201), I can see that their delivery range covers most of central and north Spokane. I don't know what they have in the Valley or on the S Hill, you'll have to check it yourself.

Once you're in, you can order your food. I decided on an original chicken sammich, because they're good and because I know from prior experience that they're still tasty if lukewarm.

You thought the up sells in the drivethrough were annoying?

Gotta leave it to them, they're extremely thorough.

After you've finished going through the selection process, handing over your credit card info, adding tip, etc, the transaction is complete. Now I have to wait.


Imma have to run over to Dick's and get a burger to tide me over until my Burger King gets here.

Finally, my delivery arrives. The dude was cool, friendly. No issues, no hassles, no problems. The order was all there and the fries were still relatively warm.

Total price for an original chicken sandwich, fries, and a drink? $15.11

Verdict? The website works great and the service works as advertised. But waiting an hour for a burger isn't worth the wait. (actually, it was an hour and ten minutes. But who's counting?) And for $15, I'd rather get a pizza. If you're really craving a burger and can't get out of the house, this might be your ticket. Otherwise, no.


No burgers were harmed in the making of this blog post. Only chickens, who are like the axe murderers of the animal world. He had it coming.
