Oh shit, Burger King is about to start delivering
True Story: Last night I was at McDonalds picking up some Chicken McNuggets (no Khadijah Baseer), and I saw a fat guy headed to McDonalds on foot. It was about six degrees out.
I could never exert that much effort just to get some fast food in me. No Boutros. Sometimes I drink a few beers, and I get hungry, and I bring myself to go get something to eat. Not because I'm drunk and I wouldn't drive drunk to get some Chicken McNuggets, but because I'm lazy. I need Jesus to go get some fast food for me. Instead I just fill up on beer and go to sleep.
In the future I might be able to have Burger King delivered. #bonus
(Note: It says in this article that Burger King is the #2 burger chain, but I read somewhere else recently that Wendy's recently supplanted Burger King, and I'm thinking that could have something to do with this.)
Burger King, the No. 2 burger chain, has quietly begun testing home delivery of its burgers, fries and other sandwiches since fall at four of its restaurants in the greater Washington, D.C., area, with an eye on expanding beyond that.
There's a $2 delivery fee. And depending on the store (three in Maryland and one in Virginia), minimum orders vary from $8 to $10.
The stores try to deliver within 30 minutes of the time a phone or online order is received. Delivery customers must live within a 10-minute drive of the store. All soft-drink orders are in bottles. And breakfast items are not delivered. Delivery times are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
