Burger King’s Cheeseburger is one of the hamburger chain’s most popular menu items right after the Whopper and the Whopper Jr.

With only 280 calories per sandwich, and also unparalleled taste, there’s really no question as to why this sandwich sells so well.

The Burger King Cheeseburger features a fame-grilled beef patty, melted American cheese, and crunchy pickles topped with ketchup and mustard, all sandwiched between a warm sesame seed bun.

Cheeseburgers are a staple of fast-food cuisine, and no one does them like Burger King. That’s a fact.

And apart from being one of the chain’s most delicious sandwich recipes, it’s also one of the less calorie-and-fat-dense options.

Although not necessarily one of the healthiest sandwiches, it’s definitely on the lower-calorie end of Burger King’s standard offerings.

If you’re looking to cut calories, you should opt for a lettuce-wrapped sandwich. But if you can’t live without the bun, then this option should be first on your list.

A Whopper has 660 calories while the Cheeseburger has 280. It’s even healthier than the Whopper Jr., which clocks in at 350 calories. If you opt for the Cheeseburger instead of the Whopper Jr, you’ll save 70 calories and 8 grams of fat.
