(WMC-TV) - Memphis could soon have a menu item of its own at Burger King.

According to a national food blog, a source revealed that a summertime promotional menu from the fast food chain will feature a Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich.

While most of the country knows, the Mid-South is known for good barbecue. So how will a Burger King BBQ sandwich fit in?

If the rumors are true, Memphians will likely be its biggest critic.

According to, the Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich will feature creamy coleslaw sauce, white onion, and pulled pork smothered in Memphis BBQ sauce.

The blog reports it is unsure whether the new menu items will be available nationwide or in select markets.

Action News 5 reached out to Burger King to confirm the new Memphis-inspired menu item and to learn more about it. Check back with WMCTV.COM to see what they have to say.
