As part of their American Vintage campaign, McDonald's Japan released the Diner Double Beef burger, their image of a 1950s diner steak plate in hamburger form: double 100 percent beef patties with a fried egg, a slice of cheese, onions, Chicago-style steak sauce, and a mashed potato sauce on a classic whole wheat bun.
The newest burger from Jack in the Box features a beef patty with bacon mixed right into it, hickory smoked bacon, and creamy bacon mayo sauce on a new "gourmet" brioche bun. Clearly, we had to try it.
While they're fancying up the bookends by going all ciabatta on you, Wendy's has also quietly upped their game with a few new toppings. It all makes for a tasty-as-hell-sounding burger, but the reality is far less impressive.
Thinly-sliced steak? Check. White cheese? Check. Onions and green peppers? Check—with even a slight bit of blackened blistering if you look closely. But I'm convinced that a huge part of my positive Philly experience came from the new bun.
There's something new on Olive Garden's lunch menu: a burger topped with Italian prosciutto, mozzarella, arugula, marinated tomatoes, and aioli. We took it for a test-drive.
The Cheesecake Factory has a low-calorie turkey burger with mushrooms, garlic, and spices blended into the patty, but don't order it unless you want to feel like a parched iguana for the next four hours.
I couldn't even eat half of the Big King, Burger King's clone of the Big Mac.
November's featured burger at The Counter features sliced ham, sweet potato hash, cranberries, spinach, and rosemary cream sauce on a spiced turkey patty.
Steak 'N Shake's three new "Shooters" (mini burgers) are some of the most savory, spicy burgers I've ever tasted from a fast food chain.
This is like doing a shot of straight wing sauce and then chasing it with an otherwise-nondescript-but-still-too-blue-cheesy fast-food burger.
After nearly two years of development, this week TGI Friday's released a trio of new double-patty burgers made with fresh USDA Choice beef and brioche-style buns. Judging from what I ate, they should've spent more time on development.
The burger of the month at Slater's 50/50 features a patty that's half bacon, half kangaroo.
Hey, Burger King, we need to talk. I tried the new fry burger and now I don't know whether to laugh, cry, or just walk away.
For a limited time, McDonald's in Norway offered the New York Beef made with a 100 percent Norwegian beef patty topped with cheese, bacon, shredded lettuce, mayo, slices of tomato, diced onion, and ketchup on a sesame seed bun. As for what makes that New York-themed, I don't know. But being a New Yorker, I had to try it.
McDonald's recently upgraded their Quarter Pounder with three new variations: Bacon Habanero Ranch, Bacon and Cheese, and Deluxe Quarter Pounder. But despite the nice makeup job, that sad, tired beef still shows through.
After product testing earlier this year, Wendy's Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger reportedly scored higher than any other promotional hamburger in recent Wendy's history. How you feel about it will likely boil down to how you feel about Wendy's, period.
I wasn't expecting much from Red Robin's two new Wolverine-inspired burgers, but, to my amazement, these burgers weren't terrible, especially the Berserker burger topped with pickles and onion strings.
I was lucky enough to be in Tokyo as the promotion started, hitting up a Shinjuku location that offers only 100 burgers per day. (Some shops sell only 50.) I was excited to try this. Ramen and burgers are two of my favorite foods. Combine them, and what could go possibly wrong?
I'm not sure six strips of bacon versus two really warrants a Superman comparison, but there's nothing not to like here. Except for the silly name they gave to the invented piece of porcine architecture that graces this movie tie-in burger.
Have you ever had a terrible slice of pizza and thought, "Boy, I wish I could combine this with a mediocre hamburger!" If so, you're in luck! Boston Pizza has read your mind and created a product just for you.
