No matter your palate or principles, this is your chance to weigh in on why this fast-food behemoth truly deserves the crown.
The Top Ten
1 Better Burgers

The Burger King patties actually taste flame-grilled and delicious, while the McDonald's ones taste like they've been in the fridge and warmed up in the microwave.

McDonald's burgers look like a big hippo sat on them. At least Burger King didn't use pink slime in their patties, and McDonald's burgers barely even have any condiments or pickles. So, for all you moms and dads, please take your kids to Burger King.

The patties at Burger King actually taste grilled and crisp. McDonald's patties taste microwaved. Burger King Whoppers are HUGE. They are easier to consume and enjoy than McDonald's; you can eat a McDonald's cheeseburger in a single bite.

2 Better Fries

McDonald's fries taste soggy when they're cold, and I never really cared for them even when I was younger. Burger King's fries taste better. I even heard they have been voted the best fries in the United States.

Burger King completely changed fries in fast food, and when they're fresh, they taste great! They made them thicker compared to McDonald's fries, which are too slim and are always cold whether I eat in or take out.

Their fries are too soggy and without any taste.

3 Better Tasting Shakes
4 Healthier

Have y'all seen all the comparisons and stuff on YouTube? A lady kept a meal from McDonald's and opened it 24 years later. The burger looked almost the same, just harder, and the fries were almost the same. Chemicals. Parents, take your kids to Burger King instead.

A burger is unhealthy too, but not as much as McDonald's.

5 Slushies

Does McDonald's have slushies? Nope. At Burger King, you can get a cherry or Coke slushie.

A frozen Coke with a Whopper Jr is better than any combo meal from McDonald's.

6 Bigger Fries
7 Chicken Fries

Burger King offers Chicken Fries and limited-time varieties of them. Also, Burger King's Chicken Fries Rings are amazing too. The Chicken Fries taste so good, much better than anything McDonald's sells. McDonald's no longer sells Chicken Fries.

Chicken Fries have always been my favorite! When they brought them back, I was so happy!

8 They Grill Their Burgers
9 Better Tasting Chicken

The Tender Crisp Chicken Sandwich is an actual whole piece of white meat. McDonald's sells compressed chicken parts in the shape of a patty for most of their sandwiches.

Burger King sells real chicken, while McDonald's chicken is clearly shaped to be a patty.

This is just my opinion, but Burger King's chicken just tastes better to me.

The Contenders
11 The Employees Don't Look So Miserable

At McDonald's, the employees look tired and agitated, then they turn around and take their bad mood out on the customers. It must be the work environment. At Burger King, the people are usually laughing, smiling, telling stories, and their good mood gets to rub off on you, the customer. Obviously, the work environment is better, and so are the employees' attitudes at BK when comparing it to McDonald's.

12 Doesn't Have a Creepy Mascot

I hardly ever go to Burger King, but I've never met The King. I did look him up on Bing; he did look a bit creepy but not as much as Ronald McDonald.

Why does the 1950 Ronald McDonald have a cup for a nose and a tray for a hat? And why doesn't the Burger King's face move?

Of everything on the list, this is the only one accurate, only because it is a clown.

13 Super-Sized Coke
14 Onion Rings
15 Limited-Time Promotions / Deals
16 Better Deals
17 Free Sauce

Burger King because they charge nothing. My mom takes a load, and it's awesome!

McDonald's charges 50 cents. Meanwhile, Burger King charges nothing for as many sauces as you want.

18 Faster Service

My Burger King will have me in and out in just a few minutes, compared to my McDonald's where the length of the drive-thru doesn't matter. There could be 13 cars or 3 cars in McDonald's, and it would still take like 20 minutes. Maybe an exaggeration, but it's still an awfully long time. At Burger King, there could be 3 or 4 cars, and I'm still through super quick. Also, they have never managed to completely screw up my order, which my McDonald's has done almost every time I go through the drive. So kudos to Burger King for having workers that can read a slip!

19 Cooler Toys
20 Better Sides

Burger King sides are amazing. For example, when last have you gotten onion rings from McDonald's? Oh right, THEY DON'T HAVE ANY!

Burger King even has sides specifically for babies, for example, applesauce and sometimes even a small apple juice. Even if McDonald's has that, you throw that plastic cup right in the trash, polluting the earth even more! While Burger King uses recyclable materials.

Burger King, unlike McDonald's, found a way to make good food while also decreasing their impact on the environment.

21 Cleaner Restaurant
22 The Workers are Nice and Respectful
23 Larger Burgers

Burger King's burgers are BIG. When you go to McDonald's... I don't even need to say, they look small as a cockroach.

24 Better Smelling Restrooms
25 Amazing Service

I went through at 11 pm one night when I got off of work, and it was quick (6 cars in the drive-thru), and my food was super warm, and the employees were all nice!
