    MacCoin: McDonald’s Introduces Global Big Mac Currency (Video)

    The Big Mac turns 50 this year, and McDonald’s isn’t exactly going for minimal, tasteful vibes in celebrating the iconic sandwich’s birthday. Instead, it’s an all-out marketing bonanza, culminating in the introduction of a “global currency” called MacCoin. No, it’s not a cryptocurrency, even though it’s clearly meant to evoke that concept. As Mickey D’s explains, instead […]

  • Sun Flame-Grilled Whopper at Burger King Kuwait (Video)

    Sun Flame-Grilled Whopper at Burger King Kuwait (Video)

    I’m writing this from my adopted hometown of Austin, Texas, which is currently in the midst of a soul-destroying heatwave, with high temperatures reaching into the 110s. It’s nearly unbearable, but at least I can tell myself that it’s not hot enough to grill a Whopper using the sun’s rays. For that, you have to […]

    Creator: LA Burger Joint Features a Burger-Making Robot

    What if when robots take over the world, it’s not by violent force a la The Terminator, but it’s by appealing to humanity’s irresistible love of quality cheeseburgers? Just a thought that occurred to me as I read up on Creator, a new LA restaurant with cheeseburgers made by caring metal hands. But please, don’t call the […]

    Red Robin Offers Free Food to Teachers Today

    Summer has officially begun, which means it’s one of the only times it’s unambiguously sweet to be a teacher. So it seems like kind of a weird time for burger joint Red Robin to roll out a free food promotion for teachers — wouldn’t it be better to do it during the school year, when they could […]

    ‘A Burger to Believe In: Recipes and Fundamentals’ by Chris Kronner

    It’s easy to take hamburgers and their superior brethren cheeseburgers for granted these days, with fast food burger joints found on practically ever developed corner throughout the world. But author Chris Kronner didn’t let that stop him from devoting years of his life to the art of the burger, and the fruits (meats?) of his […]

  • White Castle Impossible Sliders Coming Soon

    White Castle Impossible Sliders Coming Soon

    If you had asked me to guess which major fast food burger chains would be the first to adopt meatless Impossible Burgers for its menu, I probably would not have said White Castle. But it just goes to show, you never can tell, and now White Castle Impossible Sliders are reported to be coming soon. […]

  • ‘We Beefin?': A Mixtape from Wendy’s (Audio)

    ‘We Beefin?': A Mixtape from Wendy’s (Audio)

    You might be unaware of this, but fast food burger chain Wendy’s has cultivated a certain social media persona based largely on insulting its competitors and even sometimes its own customers. That’s the important but probably not vital context for We Beefin?, a very real hip hop mixtape put out by the restaurant. Wendy’s is not […]

    McDonald’s Signature Garlic White Cheddar Sandwich

    We all know the fast food industry is going through a rough patch right now. People are looking for more from their food than just empty calories, and the big chains have resorted to all manner of promotional stunts in order to get some free viral publicity.
