That's an old NYC thing. At the typical Greek-run coffee shop, where Cheeseburger Deluxe was the best meal value (outside of breakfast specials) it was nearly impossible to get mustard for a burger. Usually they'd refuse but you could talk them into putting it on the side. I had occasions where servers would bring their co-workers to the table to see my out-of-town friends eating mustard on a burger, and then they'd start talking to them and comment on their crazy accents.

Of course, asking for ketchup on a dog in those days could get you beat up pretty badly.

I was going to wait until the poll was over, but what about relish? Real relish, like Red Pepper relish. Like this: http://www.onlyinrhodeisland.com/sweetpeprel.html or this: http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=16449 Not a Summer cookout in my neck of the woods without some.

Another one I always thought of as regional was Mayo on burgers. Never saw it in N.E. until BK started putting it on Whoppers automatically. Somewhere in the mid-70s it became the new trend, like stuffed potato skins and nacho chips.

I'll take ketchup, mustard, relish, grilled onions, lettuce please.

I'm w/you 100% on that.

Although, in Syracuse, where I grew up, it's very italian dominated - so they put ketchup on hot dogs too. Thankfully, in the suburb of Liverpool, we were blessed with Heid's, which properly taught us that ketchup has no business being on a hot dog.

Scorereader-
Niagara Falls, where I grew up, is also very Italian dominated, so ketchup on a dog is not unknown. We did have Ted's in Buffalo, where the choice was mustard or Ted's hot sauce on your burnt dog.

The only place I ever was uncomfortable ordering ketchup on a burger was when we stopped for lunch at a burger joint somewhere in Arkansas, (I think the town was named Humpyourbrother, AR) and I was asked by the woman at the counter if I wanted "Muhstarrd ohr Mayonnnaaaiiissse on youh burger". When I said I wanted ketchup, she loudly announced to the rest of the Deliverence extras eating there "Cayn yew believe he wants kayetchup own his haymburger??" We were so glad to get to texas that day.

I do respect anyone with a plan.

And, agreed. When I was on the white stuff it went on the top, next to the lettuce (or even, during my "hippie" phase, sprouts).

I am bothered by this poll. The choice of 'None of the above' should and could be "A combination of two or more'. Ketchup and mayonnaise works as a basic building block for a great burger. Cheese (I like Swiss), bacon, onion and lettuce can find their rightful place as included ingredients as long as the bun is sturdy enough to hold all of this without collapsing. I have a variety of mustards, but oddly do they make an appearance on my burger.
At the restaurant where I work we have a good grilled burger. It is there that I will take some 1000 Island dressing and go the 'secret sauce' route as made famous at Jack in the Box. Call me a heathen.

I suspect Mr. Hoffman considers his New Haven roots when he made his statement. I imagine he is using Louis Lunchbox as a reference. If memory serves me correctly, mustard isn't allowed either.

Nope. I never liked the hamburgers at Louis Lunch. I was always a steak sandwich customer.

Ketchup is a must on a burger for me along with a bit of relish. But then, I am from Pittsburgh, so what do you expect? We put ketchup on everything here. Even our football stadium is named Heinz Field.

Billions have eaten hamburgers with ketchup with no regrets.

Billions have'nt eaten cornflakes and applesauce like that, although I probably could whip up something tasty with the cream cheese applesauce mix.

No one has mentioned a hamburger "all the way" in the Carolinas, with chili and cole slaw? Or a burger in Hawaii with a pineapple slice? The a "the works" burger in Australia/New Zealand, with a fried egg and pickled beets?

Are any of them actionable?

Obviously, it's in jest, Mikey. (If you're calling me slaps, I assume that Mikey will work just fine) It's hardly a serious allegation. I don't think that anyone here would reasonably think that you are that way.

Dry your eyes, Mikey.

I've always eaten hamburgers with ketchup, or ketchup and mayonnaise. After hearing about Louis Lunch in Connecticut, and their refusal to provide ketchup; I tried eating burgers without ketchup. If it's a decent burger, it's just as good, if not better without the ketchup. It's hard to break old habits. Where I'm from (N.J.) ketchup on burgers is the norm. But you can really appreciate the taste and quality of a good burger without the ketchup.
