I like the recent Burger King commercial advertising the Angus Burger

boss" I upgraded your Angus Burgers because I'm deciding to fire one of you"

worker with soda in hand " how do you plan to that?"

boss" Einy Meiny..."


lol:insane: very funny and clever

like Ames's ads were

this one'll definately be a classic

I like how they show the type of burger their advertising then being wrapped in a wrapper bearing the Burger King logo and the end of the commercial with a annoucer sounding like a singer singing " have it your way" very innovative and cutting edge.

in the old BK ads the logo was against a black background now its against a white background a change for the better

talking about BK commercials anybody remember the one with the joke of the three bears?

aired around 1995-1997

Burger King has fallen on difficult times here of late.  In my part of the country (Southern Indiana) most of the old locations have gone out of business alltogheter and many more are rumored to follow.

Does anyone remember when Burger King gave out free popcorn in the lobbies after 4 pm.  Who would go to Burger King for popcorn?  Wouldnt you buy food if you were there.
It was a bad idea and didnt last long, kinda like those funny tasting taco's.

Here's an abandoned burger king on Main St. in Downtown Buffalo, NY that closed about 7-8 years ago. This place is ROUGH both inside and outside. The awning was very recently taken off. Anybody know when this was built?

here's an older one which has been remodeled. I think the ones with the wood are older (I ate in a BK from 1984 and it had it). Judging by the design id say circa 1980. I absolutely HATE BK's blue roofs. It makes their places look more like a preschool than a restaurant!!. RESTAURANTS SHOULD NEVER HAVE BLUE ROOFS!!! Seeing an 80's burger king with one of those ugly blue roofs just saddens me..lol I love how on 95% of the pre-2000 BK's you can see how they modified the signs to the new crescent logo, but they are still in the shape of the old one. We ate at this one on our class trip on our way to pitsburgh and all my friends were asking me why I was taking a pic of a burger king lol...This restaurant also had playland, which me and my friends played in (Who says 13 year olds cant have fun in a Burger King playland??) This one's PL still had signs fror the Burger King kids Club (A group of very 80's-ish fictional kides who promoted the kids meal. They were recently discontinued.)

Most of the BK's i've been in have the tan and brown tile...do any of the new ones still have those?

Here's a newer BK with a (eww) SILVER roof. This was built 5 years ago when they demolished the old one on the same site:mad:

ohhh not sure..we dont go out to west senaca much..

Heres another old wood Burger King..yaaay!! This one's in hamburg, NY. This looks like a later woodie burcause it doesnt have as much wood versus the older ones, plus it looks a lot like the 80's design. I'd say circa 1985..

yep..The age of Burger kings are pretty easy to identify. I found out one restaurant was built around 1984 by art festival poster paintings inside!! This one I found out becuse my aunt told me.

Most of the "woodies" as I call them are from the early-mid 80's I'm guessing..

The design after that (like the '88 BK above) was late 80's-2000 when they went to the "daycare center" look:( Anybody know for sure?

wow..Hey Caldor, any Burger Kings in your area? You should get pics, new or old. BTW, are there ANY BK's left with the old logo? After 15 years there's still a K-Mart with one, there's gotta be a Burger King with one(s) after 5 years!!

The BK near me just recently changed its signage to the new type...it too is a "Woodie" style building, and I'm guessing it's from the late 70s-early 80s. I know it's been there at least since 1987 because that'swhen a car wash was built next to it, and in all the newspapers (accessed thanks to my library's microfilm collection lol) the location is described as being "next to Burger King." Plus, it just has a really old look inside--my memories of it from the age of 4 and today are the same...

My local Burger King, built in 1994.  It has the most unusual style ever seen!  The owner did not wanted the square brown box and came with that round design.  The entire dining area has window-walls and a high cathedral ceiling.  The play area is located at the right corner in a square addition.  :roll:
