I’m a foodie. I’m a blogger. I don’t blog about fast food. I’ll make this short.
Going back to my first job out of college when we actually called the local McDonald’s to confirm their McRib actually included pork – former coworker/buddy is Muslim – I’ve been obsessed with all things fast food rib related. So, it was only natural that I document my “experience” with BK’s new Fire Grilled Ribs.
No, I’d never order something off a fast food menu by it’s full name but figured it was worth correcting myself since I was recording me ordering ACTUAL ribs from a fast food restaurant for god’s sake. Yada, yada, yada – point is, it’s pretty tough saying “BK Fire Grilled Ribs” instead of just “ribs.”
The “combo” comes with a drink. Worst combo ever. The cost was $4.23 and all that was received was 3 ribs and a medium coke. 3 ribs aren’t enough to fill my 6 year old niece and/or nephew.
Taste and Review:
The ribs tasted…wait for it…great! Seriously, even without dipping them into the sauce – which I recommend – I’m a huge fan. Will I ever order them again? Absolutely not! Why?
1) Ribs should never be consumed fast in a seedy restaurant. That’s like mixing oil with water. It’s like praying to god in a gross airplane bathroom instead of at St. Patrick’s cathedral. I could make up more analogies that make me chuckle and confuse everybody else…but, I digress.
2) Cost. It’s not that I mind spending money on ribs, but, I mind spending more than $8 at a fast food restaurant for a main food item (ribs, burger, chicken, etc.), fries, and a drink.
Go get your order of BK Fire Grilled Ribs today…after you refi your house.
