What is the price of a Big Mac Menu and a Whopper Menu in Budapest? [Updated in 2024]

I know this might be an offense to many tourists visiting Budapest. It is, however, a reality that many people eat fast food at Burger King and McDonald’s while in Budapest. Why is that? Because it is easy and cheaper than most other restaurants, you don’t have to wait for a long time, and you know what you get.

So, what should you expect if you visit a McDonalds’ or a Burger King in Budapest to buy a Big Mac menu, a Whopper Menu, or maybe a Happy Meal in McDonald’s’? After all, families with children often hate waiting 30 minutes for an order to be served in a restaurant that visits such places. Or maybe students who are on a budget want something quick and cheap.

The price of a Whopper Menu in Budapest (updated in 2024)

If you are a fan of Burger King and their Whopper sandwich, the price of a Whopper menu in Budapest is 2320 HUF. (appx 6 Euro). If you want two pieces of meat in your Whopper menu (making it a Dupla Whopper King Menu), the price is 2620.

Why should you eat a Whopper and not a Big Mac? It feels fresher due to the fresh vegetables, and the meat feels more like meat.

The price of the children’s meal (King Junior Meal) at Burger King is 1490 HUF.

Would you rather go to McDonald’s? I know the taste of a Whopper feels fresher than a Big Mac, but there is something about the Big Mac taste that makes it so easy to eat that you just love eating it. I remember watching Super Size Me once, and do you know what I dreamt of as I left the cinema? A Big Mac! 🙂

If you would like to buy a Big Mac menu in Budapest, the price for a normal size menu is 2380 HUF (appx. 6 Euro). If you want a bigger menu with larger fries and a larger drink, the price is 2540 HUF.

Do you want to eat at McDonald’s while in Budapest?

The price of the happy meal at McDonald’s is 1660 HUF as of January 2024.

Do you find these prices expensive, or is it worth it? It is worth noticing that you can get much better hamburgers for the same price (or lower) in serious hamburger bars in Budapest, so it isn’t necessarily cheaper to eat at Burger King or McDonald’s, compared to other places. But, it is quicker, it often feels safer, and the kids love it.

Fun fact: There are more than 50 McDonald’s restaurants in Budapest. In addition, you can find lots of Burger King restaurants. Besides these giants, you can also find more and more KFC restaurants.

So, what kind of tourist are you? Would you ever eat at Mcdonald’s or Burger King during a trip to Budapest or some other big city worldwide? Or would you rather find something local no matter what?

Best brownie in Budapest

Are you wondering where to eat the best brownie in Budapest? I am… I always enjoy trying out brownies as I go to restaurants and I almost end up disappointed in every place. Long time ago I remember someone telling me that Spoon has the best brownie in town. I tried, but I was not at all impressed! Then I heard that Negro has it… yet another disappointment. Then I tried it at Cream Cafe and Restaurant, and though the brownie portion I was served was extremely big, the taste was not!

I have for sure tried to eat brownies elsewhere as well, but so far I have to admit something that makes me kind of sad. Or I do not know, because in my eyes and in my opinion the best brownie in Budapest currently costs 420 Forints, and you can get it with vanilla ice cream in every single Burger King in town! I am not sure if the problem is with me, or what the problem is, but that is at least my thoughts on this matter.

Another similar case is the subject if onion rings. I read a comment on Pampas Steakhouse last week where someone wrote that their onion rings taste like the ones you get at Burger King (meaning that you almost don’t feel the onion inside). As I go to Pampas Steakhouse I order their onion rings almost every times, because they simply taste very good – exactly as I like them and love them. Maybe I am an anti-gourmet, or I don’t know, but the onion rings do not need to have an extreme onion taste – they just need to taste good!
