(bk.com) – Mechanicsville, Virginia

How I heard of this place: Chris. Our road trip fare continues.

Type of cuisine: The new look of fast food. From times prior, when we only had the option of chicken sandwiches or beef burgers, we have moved into the fast food of the future, sharing breakfast options, salads, low-fat and kids options, as well as customized menus.

Ambiance: Even though the food options have grown since back in the early 1980s, the look and feel of the space has changed very little. Plastic chairs and tables, plastic booths with decorated backs are strategically placed throughout the establishment. Floor to ceiling windows allow for views of the street from three of four sides of the venue, while the fourth leads to the counter and into the kitchen area. Windows are bedecked with posters and new menu items, special late-night hours and promotions, including free wi-fi. Fluorescent lights typically create a yellowed tone throughout and the sounds of radio talk can be heard as the drive-through is occupied by more patrons.  

What I ordered: On this visit, we used two coupons: buy one Whopper, get one free ($3.39), and buy one Original Chicken Sandwich with Cheese ($4.59) to get a second one free.

What I loved: Between the two, the Whopper is my usually my favorite. Chris can never turn down the Original Chicken Sandwich!

Why I loved it: Quick, efficient, you always know what you’re going to get. There are no surprises when it comes to the flavor, general consistency and combination in a BK meal.

Cost: Low ($3-$6 per sandwich)
