Burgers from The Wright Bar and The Longhorn Cafe [Photographs: Left: Erin Jackson, Right: Damon Gambuto]

This week, we're curious if you like your toppings on top of, or below, your burger patty (and why). Do you find that putting the toppings on the bottom helps the bun from getting soggy? Do you like having everything up top so that the veggies stay nice and crisp? Maybe it's a mix of both, or you haven't noticed a difference whether the toppings are above or below the beef. Either way, we want to know.

Results from Last Week's Poll

Daily Double from McDonald's [Photograph: J. Kenji Lopez-Alt]

Last week, we asked if you'd opt for a healthy side over fries at McDonald's. Here's what a few of you had to say:

No. I only eat at McDonald's 2-3 times a year so I will order fries and not think for a second to have a salad or fruit.


A decent side salad, sure. A feeble mix of browning iceberg, carrot shreds and rock-hard pink tomatoes, no way.


No chance. I already know what I'm doing to myself when I go to McDonald's. That is not my "make myself healthy" time...that is my "destroy the dollar menu" and eat some fries time.


Poll Results

Yeah, you want fries with that. Nearly half (47 percent) of AHT'ers said fries are a must at McDonald's, while only 25 percent said they would opt for a healthier alternative (the least popular answer, after "maybe", with 28 percent of the vote).

Note: the poll remains open, so these numbers may shift slightly in the future.
