RE: Schnack Burger - Schnackies
Re: User Polls
They just that. There is the great debate do you use professional critics or the public (e.g., Zagats, CitiSearch, etc.).
There is value to the critics as they tend to be very even handed, but then they don't pay for their own meals and can afford to visit a wide variety of places.
The value of the "peoples choice" is that they go places that don't fit into the critics lexicon let based on your example, Wendys.
My own burger, the Schnackie, is a mini or slider. We cook it well done and dont' do any other temps (e.g., no rare, etc.). Now some critics (and people as well), perfer a 10 oz burger served rare. Mine is 1.5 oz well done, and for those people I'll never serve a good burger.
Other people, because of diet or other reasons, like a small tasty bit of meat that cooks quick w/ a nice crust and keeps it's "juice" even though it's well done. Those people LOVE my burger.
