I'm not into burgers anyway, especially restaurant-made ones, but the worst burger I've ever had was at a Burger King in Washington, D.C., sloppy, floppy, gray like wet asbestos, with not the slightest taste other than salt.

After one bite, I dropped it in a garbage bin around the corner, together with the paper cup of Sprite or 7-Up, which stank like an over-chlorinated indoor swimming pool (obviously concentrate diluted with local water).

Looks like that dive is kept in business because there are way enough Americans who don't really have the taste for a decent burger. Five years later, it's still there.
I can never understand the buying of "instant" burgers. Home-made is MUCH BETTER!... and SO easy....... When you cook instant burgers .. the longer you cook them the more fat runs out till you left with a piece of old leather!

500 gr of beef mince
grated onion and garlic
grated half a tomato
crumbled slice of white bread
one egg mixed in
salt and pepper and other spices to suit taste .....
a bit of flour to bind it


shape them in hand how big you want them .... and fry!..... juicy and delicious!

AND you can make a batch when you got the energy, and freeze them in cling-wrap.

I agree, but how do you make a home-made burger while running around down-town between two flights?
