Back Yard Burgers: Not In My Backyard

Nick Solares 18 comments

There's a drawing of a barn on the wall of the Backyard Burger on Marler Lane in Ozark, Missouri. I doubt very much that any of the beef served at Back Yard burger came from a farm that looked like that, despite it being domestic Black Angus. But then again, it doesn't appear that the burgers there are cooked in a charcoal fired kettle as the companies logo implies. More

Reality Check: Carl's Jr. Philly Cheese Steak Burger

Reality Check Damon Gambuto 22 comments

The notion of dropping the entire contents of another iconic sandwich on top of my burger doesn't seem like the best of ideas. Of course, fast food chains aren't always trying to make something delicious. Rather, they're just trying to tempt us to come in again when they offer up things like Carl's Jr.'s most recent experiment: the Philly Cheese Steak Burger. I took the bait and stopped by to see how this new burger compares to its beauty shots. More

Reality Check: A&W BBQ Bacon Crunch

Reality Check Damon Gambuto 17 comments

It's been a while since I've checked in on a fast food burger, but a recent work trip that took me through Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma inspired me to get back to it. On my way back to Kansas City, Missouri, from Jennings, Oklahoma, along route I found myself overwhelmed with fast food options. I settled on an A&W burger because it had been a long time since I'd had one. More

Celebrating National Cheesecake Day with a Cheeseburger at Cheesecake Factory

Damon Gambuto 10 comments

Today is National Cheesecake Day so I thought it appropriate that I take reader John I. up on his recommendation to stop into The Cheesecake Factory to sample a burger. Menus that expand to the proportions of The Cheesecake Factory can miss the mark when executing the staples, so it's a nice surprise to find their burgers as solid as they are. More

The Burger Lab: The Ins-n-Outs of an In-N-Out Double-Double, Animal-Style

J. Kenji López-Alt 154 comments

Order In-N-Out's Double Double (two patties, two slices of cheese) Animal Style and the Double Double is brought to a whole new level: The onion slice gets replaced with a dollop of a sweet, darkly caramelized chopped onions, an extra stack of pickle chips goes underneath the tomato, and the patties get fried with mustard directly on the griddle. But while I've had my share of regular In-N-Out burgers, I've never had them Animal Style. That's something that needed to change, and stat. More
