 Me, I want a 1/2 lb. hand pattied 80/20 burger, medium rare on a toasted bun, salt, pepper and granulated garlic if possible. No salad or condiments at all, it should come with hand cut twice fried fries, cost in the $7.49-$8.49 range, for the two.

Medium rare with grilled onions, mayonnaise and dark mustard on a toasted bun. I'll add my own black pepper if it's needed. But, I want my 85-15 meat mixed with some salt, pepper, garlic granules, dry Coleman's mustard and some bread crumbs (to soak up and retain the juices as the meat cooks).
 
Edit: If I grind my own meat -- rare, not medium rare.

Half pound, hand pattied but not overly thick, char grilled just under medium, grilled onion or sesame bun, ketchup, yellow mustard, grilled onion slice, fresh avocado slices or, better yet, guacamole.

Served with onion rings, sauteed mushrooms and a side of either frijoles de la olla or chili and beans.

Not always. Sometimes relish, sometimes mustard and relish, sometimes just mayonnaise, sometimes mustard, relish and mayonnaise.
 
I grew up in Connecticut.

I like an 80/20 burger, well done ( I won't eat anything less than well done when eating out) with bacon, grilled onions, mayo and ketchup.

I like my burger chargrilled but cooked through, I can handle a medium rare steak but like burgers fully cooked.  The burger patty itself I don't like too thick either.

Gotta have raw onions, tomato relish, cheese, a little lettuce, tomato and pickles, bun I like toasted a little.

DLnWPBrown - Did you ever get sick from a medium rare burger?  Anyone?  Just wondering.  I guess I've just always taken a chance.  I aalways order mine medium rare.

80-20 - Fresh, hand pattied Ground chuck meat - Medium rare - sauteed onions, good quality sharp cheddar, good juicy tomato slice, salt n pepper on a good baked roll.  Legitimate fries (fresh Idaho - twice fried) cooked in peanut oil.  Plenty of napkins.  Barrel cured pickles on the side with creamy cole slaw.

I grew up in Cedarhurst in Nassau County, Long Island. We had a diner in town (Central Diner) where they made their own prepared mustard. I loved my .20 cent (mid 1950's) cheeseburgers with this mustard on them.

Never ketchup?


If that's addressed to me the answer is absolutely never. The only thing I like about the hamburgers at Louis Lunch is the fact that there's no catsup allowed.

1/3 LB. 80/20 Medium rare with double cheddar, raw onion, ketchup, tomato, (I lived in California for a while) and pickles on a toasted, soft sesame seeded bun. Mustard is OK, as well.
I love them charbroiled but, cooked on a flat top grill is good, too.
A vanilla shake would be my beverage of choice.

Lately, I've been buying grass fed ground beef at Wholefoods for my burgers at home. It's a totally guilt free burger. At home I like to mix 2/3 ketchup with 1/3 mayo and a teaspoon of sweet pickle relish to make my own "special sauce". Adding a little hickory sauce is good too.

In the rare cases where a burger is good enough, I like it plain on a regular bun. Other times just ketchup and a slice of raw onion. Never cheese.

I come from NY too and never heard of anything other than ketchup or onion or chese on a burger until the first MacDonald's arrived in the mid '60s and they put a pickle directly on the burger which was unheard of until then.

 I must admit that I seldom order a Burger in a 'sit-down' restaurant that has more than Burgers on the Menu. At places like 5 Guys or Culvers I will, but most folks would label those places as FF.

 I look for a Club Sandwich or a good BLT rather than a Burger on a Diner Sandwich menu!

I do like Farmer Boys Farmer Burger which fits Capt Jacks SoCal description up above. A large Double-Patty CheeseBurger (Swiss or Provolone if they are available) , Several slices of Bacon, Tomato, Avocado slices, and Red Onion. Hold the Lettuce and Pickles. I'll shoot some BBQ Sauce on it or Brown Mustard at the table.

A side of Zucchini Spears and/or Onion Rings would be my first choice for a side...Extra-Well-Done FF would be a second choice !

Coke/Pepsi or Sweet tea with Lemon would be the beverage of choice.

I was a bus kid at a WHite Spot rest in Littleton Co back in 69.  The owner had his own special meal.  He called it the "Super Special"  It was pretty simple.  The standard 1/4lb Super Burger one a swsame seed bun.  The bonus was 3 strips of crisp bacon and a slice of raw onion melted undre cheddar cheese.  Myself, I dont like cheese burgers.  The cheese on top of warm beef doesnt do it for me.  I loved that one though.  It reminded me of the Teen Burger A&W use to have.

I like a 1/2 pound burger cooked med rare, not to thick with the works on a toasted or grilled sesame seed roll.

Cheese (anything but bleu) Raw onion, lettuce, tomato (only if in season), ketchup, mustard, mayo, pickles.
 
I like em sloppy...at least a 5 napkin burger. 
 
Add an order of good Onion Rings or properly cooked hand cut fries and an ice cold Straub and I'm a happy man.

I have been grinding my own meat for about a year now ever since I saw one of the workers cough right over the meat he was working on at the local supermarket. I use chuck roasts that I get from Costso and do all the trimming myself..this way I know what is in there & it just tastes better.
 
My burger would be a 1/3 pound patty that has salt, pepper, worc sauce, chopped cherry peppers (very fine chop) and some garlic powder worked into the meat. Cooked to medium-rare then topped with thinly sliced red onion, mayo, lettuce, bacon, pepper jack cheese, and some cheap yellow mustard served on an onion roll.
 
Wash it all down with an ice cold beer.......

I've gotten into the habit of asking for my burger "medium rare, or rarer if you feel comfortable serving it".  Sometimes it comes out medium rare and sometimes it moos, like this patty melt I got last year:


For cheese my current preference is Swiss, Cheddar if that's not available, and if I have to I'll settle for American.  If I'm eating somewhere that offers a more eclectic cheese selection I might try something different.

Bacon?  Yes, please.  Mushrooms if they're available.  If the mushrooms are in a sauce I won't use any condiments; otherwise, a little yellow or brown mustard is a nice touch.

This is quite a question.I guess it depends on what kind of burger I want.Mostly, I order cheese, fried onions and dill picle slices.No need for condiments.But if i order a mushroom swiss burger, its just that but add brown mustard.Years ago we had a local restaurant that had a burger with cheese, bacon and bbq sauce.Excellent. And on occasion, a burger with just cheese and bacon.

What I get on the burger depends on the mood and what "feels" good at the time. I have had some spectacular ones recently, last night I had a sauteed onion, cheddar cheese, and an excellent BBQ sauce.
 
But there are a few things that are pretty standard for me that go into an excellent base for the burger. 8-10 oz. Medium Rare griddled. Put in on a slightly toasted potato roll bun that yields slightly but also will hold up to the onslaught of juice from the burger.
 
Mmmm... beef.

3/4 inch pattie 82/20 fresh ground cooked in a large cast iron skillet. Medium High heat flipped once when a dark char has been reached and pattie has released itself from skillet. Inertior should be medium rare if heat is correct. Topped with dark carmelized onions, diced jalapeno, salt, pepper, good quality thick american cheese completely melted using a hamburger dome. Condiments: Hot Sauce and Ketchup. Extra Carmelized Onions on the side...Russ

If cooking over charcoal a Hibachi is best. You can us a Weber but you will waste alot of charcoal. Same rules apply for Burger Dome. If you dont have a Burger Dome get one. You can get one at Wasserstrom. Once you use one you will wonder why anyone would cook a Burger any other way.

In a LARGE cast iron skillet you can fit 3 domes which is good. Plus on the grill they work great. They are only 6 bucks and last forever. Plus the crowd is impressed by them....LOL. Michael I am working in Columbus now and moving here soon. Have you tried 5 guys?...Russ

Medium rare on a good bun…ground pepper, banana peppers, thick sliced tomato, white onion, lettuce, yellow mustard and a dash of ketchup.

If it has cheese...make it cheddar or blue.

The avocado ship sailed upthread in my first post. There are places that serve "Hawaiian burgers" with pineapple on them, but the thought of that makes me as nauseated as the concept of putting pineapple on pizza.

Avocados, bacon, lettuce, and tomatos, make an excellent burger. Must be done on a Weber. Ground Ribeye works well when mixed 50/50 with 80/20. Coarse salt and Pepper. Topped with a grilled Chared Poblano Chili with the skin removed. As to the Pineapple Burger I have a hot sauce recipe if you want it that uses habenero that works great. The problem with pineapple burgers served at restaurants is the pineapple is too moist. It needs to be grilled down unti it is almost dry.  Bun must be toasted. You can also put a little raw coarse sugar on it at the end and carmelize it. If the pineapple is too moist it destroys the bun and the flavorr. Try peanut butter and bacon on a burger with a dark toasted bun. Cook the peanut butter right on the burger like cheese. The peanut butter must be hot...Russ

I will post it anyway:

Hot Sauce

6 medium jalapenos,roasted seeds ribs and stems removed
2 serano peppers roasted stems ribs and seeds revoved
1 habenero chopped fine not roasted seeds and ribs removed.
4 roasted Poblano
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup white vinegar
Juice from 1 ½ large limes
1 fist full fresh cilantro chopped coarse with stems
2 half inch fresh pineapple rings grilled until you get some good marks on each side then chopped
1 tomato, finely chopped
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon turmeric

It works great as a [ [ like Tabasco, Cholula, or similar.
You can also use it straight with Chips, as a Jerk [, or when making Wings. (Great Wing [)

This really isnt that [ It burns at the back of the mouth not the front. Once you remove the seeds and ribs and roast the peppers alot of the heat is gone.
If you dont trust me dont add the Habenero or just part of it.
I cannot stress enough that you carmelize the fresh pineapple on the bbq until very dark lines are acheived.
Roast the peppers until black then place in a bag to steam let cool and remove skin.
Combine the chiles, onion, garlic, pineapple, and tomato in a blender and puree. Leave mixture in blender. Combine the vinegar and lime juice in a [pan and heat until it reaches a slight boil, then sprinkle in the thyme, basil, nutmeg, mustard, and turmeric. Pour this [, spiced mixture and cilantro over the reserved puree and blend thoroughly until smooth.

It will get [ter the longer it sits. I hope you try this and enjoy...Russ

Wabbit


Burger cooked Med. Carolina Classic style, Chili,Slaw,Onion and Mustard. Twice Fried Fries, topped with Chili and Large Sweet Tea..Tums on the side with a Altoid for the onions.


Wabbit that sounds good as hell right now. I though, am grilling BBQ chicken ( Eastern NC vinegar BBQ sauce ) along with some pork chops this evening. The wife is making potato salad and we have some fresh local corn on the cob to go with it.

I've gotten into the habit of asking for my burger "medium rare, or rarer if you feel comfortable serving it".  Sometimes it comes out medium rare and sometimes it moos, like this patty melt I got last year:


For cheese my current preference is Swiss, Cheddar if that's not available, and if I have to I'll settle for American.  If I'm eating somewhere that offers a more eclectic cheese selection I might try something different.

Bacon?  Yes, please.  Mushrooms if they're available.  If the mushrooms are in a sauce I won't use any condiments; otherwise, a little yellow or brown mustard is a nice touch.

Hey Brad...where did you get that Patty Melt? Looks great albeit a bit rare for me. Have you ever been to the Blue Moon here in Madison? I think they are my favorite....I also like the Village Bar on Mineral Point Rd.

I don't think it looks rare enough.

If cooking over charcoal a Hibachi is best. You can us a Weber but you will waste alot of charcoal. Same rules apply for Burger Dome. If you dont have a Burger Dome get one. You can get one at Wasserstrom. Once you use one you will wonder why anyone would cook a Burger any other way.

Save your money and put an up-turned skillet over the cooking burger.


i was thinking the same thing.
