Is This Really the Best Burger in America?

When I started chronicling my own cheeseburger adventures (193 articles ago!), I began with my all-time favorite, The Double Coronary from The Vortex Bar & Grill in Atlanta. Living in this city has provided me an ideal vantage point from which to sample several others that lay claim to being the best you’ll ever eat. […]

Smashburger Smashing Their Way Toward the Top of the Burgersphere

When I first wrote about Smashburger in November ’09, the Colorado-based chain had “a handful” of locations in 11 states. They also had visions of expansion- aiming for 200 stores by 2014. They’re on track, with current company propaganda boasting 24 states and almost 130 locations… with many more listed as “Coming Soon.” Atlanta’s first […]

Would You Pay $100 for This Burger?

What’s your dollar limit for a burger? Where do you draw the line? As soon as you hit about six bucks, you’re out of fast food territory. Fifteen is usually the upper end of the fanciest burger at most specialty restaurants. Linen-napkin-type steakhouses and such can get away with burgers in the 20s. That’s about […]

Want fries with that Big Mac? How about some original TV programming?

290-Pound Man Sues White Castle Over Seats

Martin Kessman has a beef with his local White Castle restaurant, and he’s not taking it sitting down. The 64-year-old has filed suit in Manhattan’s federal court, suing the chain for unspecified claims. And bigger chairs. See, Kessman weighs in at almost three bills.

McDonald’s Goes Retro with 1955 Burger

Ronald McDonald has been partying across Europe like it’s 1955. That’s the year that Ray Kroc opened the very first McDonald’s location in Des Plaines, Illinois.

Is Hamburger Helper an Acceptable Alternative to the Real Thing?

Boy, that box with its smiling glove mascot brings back memories for lots of us. It’s a pantry staple for poor college students (“I’m too wasted to drive to BK!“), struggling newlyweds (“Yes, mom, we cook!”), and uninspired parents of young children (“If I make this, will you actually eat it?”) everywhere. But if you […]

President Obama Treats Debt Team to Burgers

That’s POTUS (in a pic by Jason Reed of […]

Big Farm Burgers from Bob Evans

I’m an equal opportunity cheeseburger lover. I’ve had burgs from greasy spoon dives, sketchy food trucks, stadium concession stands, even the occasional convenience store freezer in the wee hours after a post-kegger party in college. And as I’ve said before, it’s possible to get a damn good burger from some unlikely places. But there are […]

World’s Largest McDonald’s Coming to London Olympics

The official motto of the Olympic Games is, “Citius, Altius, Fortius.” That’s, “Swifter, Higher, Stronger” for you Latin nerds. Well, the burger barons at McDonald’s have now added “Bigger” to that creed. The longtime Olympic sponsor will have a major presence at the 2012 Summer Games in London by building the world’s largest McDonald’s. There […]

Culver’s ButterBurgers: True Taste of the Midwest

I admit to having an unusual affinity for chain restaurants that I don’t have regular access to. In-N-Out, Jack in the Box, White Castle, Smashburger, and Whataburger: when I see a place I don’t have at home, I automatically assume awesomeness. And during my frequent trips to the Midwest to visit family, I’ve always been […]

Would You Eat a Test-Tube Burger?

For many these days, what comes on your burger isn’t the question; where your burger comes from is all the rage. It isn’t enough to get your hands on a killer burger, it seems.

The King is Dead and Other News from the BK Realm

Kind of a mixed bag of burger news from the folks at BK these days. Call it the good, the bad, and the gross. First, the good. And for fast food burgermeisters, it doesn’t get much better than free Whoppers. That’s the offer that was being made last week for DirecTV customers with lots of […]

Krystal’s Big Angus Burger: What’s the Big Deal?

There are some things that I just don’t get. Lady Gaga, for example. The Lord of the Rings movies. Mufflers specially designed to make your car sound like it has no muffler. Golf. While popular, these things seem silly and pointless to me. Add Krystal’s Big Angus Burger to that list. It’s surprising- given the […]

BK Stacker Math Doesn’t Add Up

By now, we’ve all seen the ads for Burger King’s “new” lineup of BK Stackers. The cheebies are available as single, double, or triple models costing a flat $1, $2, and $3 respectively. The ads even play off that rudimentary pricing structure, suggesting that teams of lab-coated mathematicians have slaved away over quadratic equations during […]

Fast Food Chain Sexes Up Turkey Burgers

A growing segment of the population is turning to beef alternatives as a healthier way to get their burger on. Problem is, ground turkey pressed into a patty isn’t cool. And it sure isn’t sexy. Unless, of course, you outfit it with one of these: That’s Gizem Memic, the reigning Miss Turkey 2010, holding the […]
