Nah I have to say McDonald's is much better. I don't get Big Macs though, I get McDoubles.

Harvey's is the best fast food burgers, by far, but I do love Burger King poutine more than almost any other place.

BK is way high for their pricing even worse than Mac, they give no cheese unless significant extra, and the content of beef in the patty is questionable (not that mac is much better here.) If the argument is just about thin patties, they are testing a supermac with larger patties. Many high end burger places are heads above these franchises for quality and taste. I'll rarely buy a Whopper or Big Mac unless it's two for one even then I feel thats just about the normal price they should be. Although there are some bad Red Robins, the Fort Wayne one is good, you can get a deluxe double with cheese for 6.99 with endless steak fries (about the price of a W or Mac with large fries) and then add bottomless lemonaid with real strawberries for 4.49 and they'll even give you one to take home, I routinely drink 4 or 5 . Note: a RR double burger is the size of the proposed supermac and bigger than a whopper, so you get real meat and more of it.

Burger King is disgustings. McDonalds can be hit or miss, but BK is consistently bad. When I actually want a fast food burger, I'd much rather eat at Hardees.

I am starting to question why people rail on McD's so much. I've eaten at all the major fast food places in my area.

McD's, BK, Wendy's, Carl's Jr., In n Out, etc. I honestly don't notice a huge difference in fast food burgers. The ones in sit-down restaurants and breweries are the best if you can't make burgers at home.

McD's is actually pretty good, considering the price and convenience.

Still, a decent burger is SO EASY to make at home. I don't get why people don't do it. All you need for quick burgers is ground beef (around 20% fat is good), and a frying pan and some butter. Fry the unseasoned patties in butter. Make them thin for very fast cooking time. You only need to flip once. Salt and pepper them after they are cooked rather than doing it to the beef before cooking. Since the patties are thin, you still get the flavor pretty much throughout, and you can stack more than one patty with stuff in between. Cooking patties this way takes maybe two minutes. With a large frying pan, you can cook 4 at a time. Alternatively, you could grind or finely mince bacon and mix it into a lean beef (90-95%). You get tender burgers enhanced by the fact you didn't mess with them too much, as the ground beef will actually toughen if you play with it and knead seasonings into it too much.

If you're feeling fancy and more productive, you can smash a garlic clove and microwave it with the butter pat you're about to use to grill the burger with for 45 seconds. This melts the butter and infuses it with garlic flavor and aroma. Remove the garlic from the butter and use the butter as you would normally to fry the patty.

If you're lazy, you can prepare a tomato-and-minced-onion mixture beforehand with Italian seasonings and garlic to add as a burger condiment instead of always slicing and using fresh raw veggies. A can of drained diced tomatoes and one medium onion. Add 1/3 cup of worcestershire sauce, black pepper, and a little red wine, along with herb mix and garlic powder. You can also use the drippings from the burger pan to cook this instead of using regular oil or new butter. Cook until most of the liquid evaporates and the onion and tomato mixture is soft and easily folds together, around 10 minutes. It'll keep in the refrigerator for over a week, and you can just pop it in the microwave to heat it up. Salting it is up to you but I usually don't since I add a mustard and ketchup mix to the burger and it is salty enough when you take into consideration that the patties themselves are also salted.

Checkers > 5 guys > wendy's > burger kingu > mcdonalds. Some may argue the first two, but I prefer the former.

If you want a burger, make your own or find a real burger joint. Screw fast food nonsense.

I remember when a market-image food photographer appeared on the old 80's David Letterman to explain why Whoppers and Big Macs in advertisements always stand up STRAIGHT. (And don't fall in six directions like they do out of the box.)
Usually, burgers for advertisements have support pins inserted, to keep their upright aligned structure.
(Dave: "But, isn't there some kind of truth-in-advertising disclaimer? Y'know, like 'Actual burger may not contain pins'?")

That said, I hadn't been to a McDonald's in literally years (too good a cook, and they're all out on the highway now), and only started going back last month when a new one opened.
If you're going to put just Thousand Island dressing on a hamburger, there MUST be some ketchup there, too. Seriously. Who came up with the idea of "No ketchup"??

Mcdonalds and Hungry Jacks have burgers that look like someone wiped their ass with them. KFC for the win. At least their sauces are made from the tears of children <3
