I find this to be one of the stranger corporate decisions in recent years. Burger King has gone through the trouble of entering this item on their touchpads, but have yet to put it on the menu, mention it in ads, etc. The only way this product exists is through word-of-mouth among vegetarians who are always pleased to find a fast-food chain cater to them.
Not to say this is anything I'd expect Burger King to brag about. It's bun with lettuce, tomato, cheese, mayo, and ketchup on it. Even a TV ad featuring 50's rock would not be able to make this sound like an especially exciting menu item. Still, for non-meat eaters (particularly those on the road) having an option other than Subway and Taco Bell is always nice.
Sadly, living in Southern California raises the bar on meat-free burgers. This sandwich doesn't hold a candle to a Wild Thing Grilled Cheese at EZ Take Out or an Animal Style Grilled Cheese with Onions at In-N-Out Burger. But, since the nearest In-N-Out is about 3000 miles away, this will have to do for now.
