This is about every burger joint thatís NOT fast food. I was at Kincaids on Monday, in Arlington. It was not as good as the Ft Worth location always was. It was ok. Meat kinda bland. Just a regular bacon cheeseburger. I will say the bacon was perfect. As I ate it I saw a sign for a firecracker burger and it got me to thinking. What categories make a burger good? Seasoned meat, toppings a mile high, buns that hold their own? Etc.

Tell me what yíall think

All of the above. Even though I havenít been to one in years, I always thought Fuddruckers had a good burger. Large juicy patty, all fresh toppings and good buns.

Medium rare, a patty that goes to the edge of the bun if not slightly larger than the bun., seasoned well, quality cheese, caramelized onions, thick cut bacon, sliced avocado, a good aoli, good fresh bun, not stacked so high that you donít have to smash to bite.

Properly seasoned meat and a toasted bun are a must.

Fresh ground 80/20, season the meat before making into patties, good thick sliced bacon, brioche bun and good cheddar. Cook on a hot flat top to produce a good sear and cook to a medium temp. Add a vidalia onion slice, vine ripened tomatoes, crisp lettuce and good pickles.

Pretty much sums up what makes a good burger for me.

Meat thick enough so that on a medium patty, you still see color.

This, alone, rules most fast food places out.

Rare, well seasoned meat, toasted bun, chewey bacon, raw onion, lettuce, tomatoe, sautťed mushrooms and Swiss cheese, a hell of a lot of mayo, pickles and mustard.

A good burger is like a good taco... once you have everything on it you want you canít pick it up and eat it.

Good seasoned patty cooked rare, I prefer a 70/30 blend. Bacon, cheddar cheese, fried egg over easy. Greasy toasted bun, but a thin bun, Iím not head for the bread, just need it to catch the runny egg and juices from the meat, canít let that go to waste.

Good meat is everything, we like it to be no leaner than 85/15.

I do like 70/30 on one hand, on the other hand the bison burger from fudruckers is dang good.

At Fuddruckers, I get a full cup of pico de Gallo and dump it on top of the patty. Not a big fan of grease dripping but donít like a dry burger either. I do like tons of different themed burgers that include bacon, spice, and as Pig said the fried egg, over medium.

Dam I canít wait till this afternoon! food

Is it lunch time yet... yíall are killing me! To me fat is what makes a good burger... itís gotta be juicy! 80/20 or even 70/30 if they have it. Salt and pepper pretty good and donít over cook it. Buttered bun, toasted of course, fresh tomato and all the fixins. Iíll even throw some fresh guac on it if Iím feeling like an animal! LOL...off to the meat market.

I smoked 12 half pound burgers the other day and they turned out pretty good. I did 225į for about an hour and a half over mesquite and pecan. Topped with aged cheddar and a bakery bun toasted in beef tallow.

All sounds great.

My question is what makes a bad burger. Man I used to even love the ďhamburgersĒ they served in the cafeteria at school, all the way back to elementary. Hamburger is only meat I will eat past medium rare.
