In doing so, Burger King chose not to introduce any of the Steakhouse XT burgers already included on the menu at its Whopper Bar concept location in Orlando, Fla. There it serves a Peppercorn Bacon Steakhouse XT, 3-Cheese Steakhouse XT and Mushroom & Swiss Steakhouse XT.
Burger King Chairman-CEO said last week that the Steakhouse XT will carry an introductory price of $3.99, a price promotion that he said franchisees have voted to support. That keeps the Steakhouse XT right at the $4 price ceiling most chains have tried to stay below. However, prices for other burgers in the XT line may be higher (with the A.1. Steakhouse XT value meal priced 50¢ higher than for the Steakhouse XT).
Additionally, with Lent beginning on Feb. 17, Burger King is dressing up its BK Big Fish sandwich with a Cilantro-Lime sauce, available through March. For Whopper fans, a Bacon and Cheese Whopper is being promoted in selected markets, as well.
