The four-patty NY Pizza Burger is available only at Burger King’s new Whopper Bar location in New York City, but the chain appears serious about exploring multi-patty burgers as sales builders. In Austria, the chain offers the X-tra Long Chili Cheese (left) with three patties lined up horizontally on a long sesame-seed bun. On top is melted Cheddar cheese, chili sauce, more cheese slices and jalapeños. It weighs in at 750 calories, 48 grams of fat, and resembles the three-patty Touchdown Burger that McDonald’s once tested in Wisconsin. Loved it.
Also dabbling in restrained excess is French Belgian chain Quick. Its new Tentation Hot Pepper burger piles three burger patties vertically, interlaced with pimento cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions and hot pepper sauce. It’s offered in a milder Tentation Cheese model, too.
