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 2023)
If you are a fan of Burger King and their Whopper sandwich, the price of a Whopper menu in Budapest is 2260 HUF. (appx 5,5 Euro). If you want two pieces of meat in your Whopper menu (making it a Dupla Whopper King Menu), the price is 2560.
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 1290 HUF.
The price of a Big Mac menu in Budapest
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 2250 HUF (appx. 5,5 Euro). If you want a bigger menu with larger fries and a larger drink, the price is 2410 HUF.
The price of the happy meal at McDonald’s is 1500 HUF as of January 2023.
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 Mcdonalds’ restaurants in Budapest. In addition, you can find lots of Burger Kings 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?
