If you thought fast food couldn't get any more convenient, think again. Burger King has just announced plans to test out a delivery option that will bring burgers and more directly to your doorstep.

In an effort to stay ahead of the ever-growing fast food market, Burger King is piloting the delivery program in four Washington, D.C. branches and will expand to 16 by next week. The chain already offers delivery at many locations internationally, but is just now bringing this added convenience to the U.S.

Customers who live within a 10 minute drive of a participating Burger King can order by phone or online from a slightly abridged menu that includes burgers, fries, chicken tenders and combo meals. Although they have special insulated containers to keep food hot, Burger King is not yet including items like shakes and ICEEs for delivery. Breakfast is also not available.

Convenience comes at a price: Orders must be a minimum of $8 to $10 plus there is a $2 delivery fee. While food is supposed to come within 30 minutes, there have been some complaints that it has taken up to an hour. Burger King has yet to announce if they will offer delivery at its locations across the country.
