Favorite fast food burger?

Unread postby 4thQtrGlory » Sat Aug 30, 2008 8:09 pm

What is your favorite fast food burger? Personally, mine is the "stack attack" burger from Wendy's. The burger king "rodeo burger" is runner up.

Plain Jr Bacon Cheeseburger from Wendy's
I get 2 and take the bottom bun off of each and combine them.
Doubles are too greasy and this solves that problem.

Double Cheeseburger from Dairy Queen. Awesome. Burger King very close second.

Great idea, Spoon. I really like Wendy's doubles, but the grease is a bit much.

There is a new burger joint on Euclid Avenue near Target called Burger Nuts that just opened. I am looking to try them out this weekend.

I think you need to clarify sober or drunk.

For me it is a Whopperr, once in a while another burger seems to be great but the Whopper has been the most consistent over the years.

Drunk it is without question the Big Buford, I don't even think you have to chew em they just seem to slide down.

Worst, probably any McD's burger, seriously is there a worse burger, my gosh, and correct me if I am wrong but weren't Big Mac's like 4 times bigger when we were kids.

By far the best in the nation, but not available in these parts...

Nationwide Chain: I have to go with ol' reliable, just a simple Cheese & Ketchup Single from Wendy's

Local Chain: Swensen's Galley Boy...whenever I'm near Pleasant Valley or Akron I must have one of these!!!

Special Mentions: Not sure if Big Boy is considered fast food or not? But I'll take a double Big Boy at midnight anytime....the Rodeo Burgers from Burger King are fine around 2am after a night out also

Big Boy w/extra sauce (and not the french/thousand island shit they try and pass off in Canada and other places). Gotta be the Manner's dressing with the tartar sauce-type stuff.

Can't find Bob's anymore for the most part.

The Tarter Sauce IS the only sauce, I agree

You can still find it in southern Ohio (bought a jar last May in C-Bus)...it's also available all over south Michigan...only 2 Big Boys that I still know of up here in C-Town

Rodeo burger from BK. Watch out for the burps afterwards.

I agree, In & Out, best in the nation.

If I still lived in Ohio I would probably choose the Roman Burger.

Now stuck in PA... There is nothing, the only thing I can think of is the Big Mac. Wish there was a Big Boys or some place good around here. They are buiding a Red Robin by me but I have never eaten at one yet.

Love Red Robin. The Whiskey River BBQ Burger is excellent. Bottomless steak fries too, great with their seasoning salt.

I just hit up the new Burger Nuts in Willoughby and it was a hit. The burgers are made to order, with FREE toppings. Hand cut fries are a bonus. (you get a LOT of them) Free peanuts, who can't pass up free peanuts?!? I will be going back to try one of their old fashioned style milkshakes soon. I highly recommend this one. They are located on Euclid avenue in Willoughby, across from Lake West Hospital. I believe they are in the old Einstein Bros. building.
I tried to look up info on the web, and came up empty. This is the only one in existance. No chains here.

national chains: McDonald's Big Mac. Though it has to be put together properly, and the chances of that are around 40%. It's scientifically proven that one Big Mac per month is good for the soul.

Local chain: Swenson's double cheeseburger or Galley boy. Doesn't get any better.

if you've ever been to "swenson's" down in akron, then you have to know that the "galley boy" is by far the best burger ever made. they are so addicting, it's not even funny. i think they put sugar in their meat to make it taste so sweet. the buns are toasted, the cheese is melted and the 2 special sauces are to die for. someone once told me it was barbecue sauce on the top & tartar sauce on the bottom, but i'm not so sure. all i know is that it is one very awesome burger!!! anyway, if you've never had one before, i suggest you take a trip down to akron sometime and locate one of their drive-ins. they got like 5 or 6 locations in the akron area. the closest one to cleveland would probably be the one on route 18 near i-77. all you do is pull into a parking space, turn your lights on and some guy will come running to take your order right by your carside. too bad they don't employ pretty girls to be their car-hops though. hee-hee!!!

p.s. get the mozzarella sticks or the deep fried zucchini on the side. yum, yum, yum!!!

Isn't it brown sugar or something?

For the uninitiated, there are some gems in the Akron area. Lot's of folklore is the'burger was invetsed in the rubber city.

I don't know WTF combo or grease and juices and sauces do that to the Galley Boy, but he's right. I am biased toward the tater tots on the side.

There's some other funky joins: Skyway Drive In in fairlawn, the sliders at The Burger Station on State Rd in the Falls.

While it isn't fast-food, Menches' Bros claims to have invested the burger. They, too, put this wierd stuff in like brown sugar and even coffee. That with a big ole onion and lettice and tomatoe? Wow.

Yeah, Akron and it's burgers.

Just don't get me started on Barberton and fried chicken, tho.

I've been adding this to my burgers at home for years now. Great touch, but the burgers have to be cooked correctly. Medium, or less. Keeps the middle sweet and juicy. Add some Lea & Perrins and A1 hot and Spicy and look out.

Yep, THE best local fast food burgers around!!! Cost around $2.10 each and you get a speared green olive on top of each wrapper...closest one to Cleveland is on Broadview Rd, just south of Pleasant Valley that I know of...we need one of these on the east side...I agree with needing some eye candy

Amen to that sir! Swenson rules and it is cheap as hell. You can get a galley boy, zucchini and milk shake for around $5. Cant beat it.

For those who arent willing to make the drive down to Akron or Kent, check out the one in Seven Hills. I hit it up after Tribe games on the way home. Its no more than 15 minutes south of downtown.

Almost everyone I know say this about McD's, but the one by me is always fucking packed with people. Makes me sick. I still would eat their b-fast, but the last 2 times I've been there I've gotten the nastiest, sitting under the heat lap for 3 hour sandwiches. Refuse to eat solid food from there again


They are putting a Sonic in Streetsboro.


How does Mentor not have one? They have just about every different kind of food place you can get? I see the commercials so much and it pisses me off we don't have one in northeast ohio

No shit, Mentor does have everything. At one point in time they had 2 Arby's within a mile of each other. I once heard that a Sonic was coming to Northeast Ohio, but I can't remember where or when, if at all.

I hear ya, everytime I see those commercials I want to try one of those milkshakes they are advertising. Drove me nuts there wasnt one in the area. Thankfully, the Streetsboro one is like a 15 minute drive for me.

I imagine if it does well, Mentor would have one soon. Mentor does have freaking everything, its such a massive suburb.

Yet they don't have Sonic, Rally's, Chili's, Carraba's, Panini's, Harry Buffalo's, IHOP, Big Boy, etc....I would love to see 2 of my faves move out to Mentor: Swenson's & Antonio's

(you get a LOT of them) Free peanuts, who can't pass up free peanuts?!? I will be going back to try one of their old fashioned style milkshakes soon. I highly recommend this one. They are located on Euclid avenue in Willoughby, across from Lake West Hospital. I believe they are in the old Einstein Bros. building.
I tried to look up info on the web, and came up empty. This is the only one in existance. No chains here.


My fiance and I hit up Burger Nuts tonight. That place was packed, and for good reason. They make a great burger, and their handcut cajun fries are out of this world. I will def. be going back soon.

With the hospital right across the street, they should be getting a lot of traffic from there. I too will be going back soon.

I know it's not fast food but Stevenson's on Lakeshore in Euclid and Chases in Mentor have awesome burgers

I once heard that Stevenson's was robbed a couple years back. The only things taken were the raw hamburgers, buns, and the toppings to go with it.

Swensen's is very good and the milkshakes add to the burger.

However

A new chain just opened within the last year FIVE GUYS

Big on the east coast, if it ain't the best you ever had send my the receipt and I'll send you the 3 bucks.

Funny thing there though, no shakes. Burgers, dogs, fries, soda, and all the peanuts in the shell you care to eat. Another trademark is they identify the city where the spuds come from on a daily basis.

I just went to Swenson's last week. Had a quarter pounder with bacon. It was good.

The batter for their onion rings is incredible. But the shake machine was down, so that kind of ruined it. I'll go sometime just for a shake.

When in Texas, be sure to stop by Whataburger. They are everywhere in the Lone Star State. I believe there's more of them than even McDonalds. Not sure why they won't take them anywhere else.

It SO depends on where you are!

Akron...Swensons can't be beat in the area. Worth driving from anywhere nearby.

Hampton (VA)...Smitty's Better Burger is awesome. With cheese is my preference.

National chains...Wendy's, whichever toppings/size you like

Regional Chains...Whataburger in Texas, 5 Guys on the East Coast

But the BEST I've ever had, worth waiting over an hour in line for, no joke...a place called Meers outside Lawton, Oklahoma. Nothing even compares, they are absolutely the best in the world!
