“Can you understand me?????”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

The drive thru is a experience of confusion as the speaker is poor and the person on the other end has such a thick accent your not even sure if the order was understood......and after leaving.....of course, it was completely wrong and took 9 minutes to get. Talk about taking the fast out of fast food:( Parking lot a littered mess too.........makes you wonder what the kitchen looks like.

“Always very clean, good service, typical BK food”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Newport has limited selection when it comes to fast food - there is this BK, a McD's, Taco Bell, and the higher priced Arctic Circle.

We are frequently in Newport during the day, and stop in here for a quick lunch on the average of once a week or so. We've been doing that for years, ever since they opened about 12 years ago.

Anyway, this Burger King is always clean. Several times a day an employee goes through the dining area to disinfect the tables and sweep the floor. The trash is *rarely* overflowing, and the drink dispenser is kept clean as well.

As far as the food, well, it's typical BK food. I like their new Turkey Burger (minus the ketchup - who puts ketchup on turkey?). My husband always opts for a flame broiled burger. We usually order fries which are always hot and fresh. Their fries are better than McD's but their grilled chicken salads are not as good, in my opinion anyway. This particular BK does have a tendency to overcook grilled chicken :-(

They just installed a brand new drink dispenser - one of those "Coca Cola Freestyle" machines where we now have a choice of about 100 types of soft drinks, waters, and juice blends! An employee keeps an eye on the machine and is ready to assist customers if they need help.

Employees are friendly and helpful. They do have a high turnover rate and hire inexperienced young folks, but then many fast food places do - it's the nature of this type of business. We've never had mistakes in an order, and often if they aren't busy the clerk will bring our food out.

Recently they installed a large, aluminum appliance that I think is for making fancy coffee drinks and smoothies. I guess they had nowhere else to put it, but it's right up front and it does block the view of the order clerk if they've stepped away for a moment. So sometimes, we get to the counter and nobody is there!

Overall, this is a clean and tidy Burger King with friendly employees and typical food. What more can you ask from a major chain fast food place?

“Better than average BK”
Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

Very clean, very friendly staff. BK is always a good bargain for good burgers. For my money, better tasting than Mickeys.
