    Ketchup, raw onion, pickle. Anybody that puts mustard on a burger is a barbarian, especially if it it is also with ketchup. Putting a fried egg on a burger can be cause for violence.

    I'm counting calories and losing weight these days, so I sincerely appreciate the food porn in this thread. The one burger I've eaten since mid-May was a double ButterBurger from Culver's, a chain based in the state of Wisconsin and mostly found in the Midwest but branching out South and West in recent years. https://www.culvers.com/menu-and-nutrition/butterburgers Somewhat off the regimen, altho the burger had no cheese and no bun, but included everything else they put on a burger. I like em. Kinda remind me of the diner burgers of my yout'.

    I like the idea of the 'everything bagel' bun cheeseburger.

    I'll try making one this weekend!!

    On the $3.99 burger night, the burgers are all pre-made and optional ingredients added later. I mean they do it on the cheap that night to help them cover costs. On other nights when burgers are full price ... around $9 or so ... yeah, the cheese is melted on.

    A really excellent pub, I love the place.

    Logan's ain't that bad. I eat there for lunch, since I use their receipt review to get $3 coupons every visit. $3 off a single meal will get me back to a place.

    Chili's is the same, I get a free soda each visit. That is worth nearly $3.

    Lots of burger places, but most of those meals are going to be nearly $15 out the door. Way too much for me to eat there for lunch. Not to mention some of those burgers are upwards of 1500 calories.

    I enjoy a cheeseburger myself, lotsa different ways. If the meat is real good and the bun nice and soft, a simple one is great, no toppings needed. I like a piled up high one too, but no ketchup and little or no lettuce, never raw onion. I have to admit, I greatly enjoy most of the cheeseburgers I come across.

    I go back and forth on that one, but I really enjoy the burps that follow a grilled burger that had them on it.

    I worked many years as a short order/line cook. In a kitchen where the grill top is only used for cooking meat it is best to just scrape the chunks off and call it good. The 350 degree grill temp destroys any bacteria that may form when the grill is off. In the case of a grill that is used for other things, such as eggs, hash browns, and grilled sandwiches the grill top needs to be cleaned with a grill brick and shined up every night. Otherwise the grill grime transfers to your product and people get eggs with "brown/black stuff" in them. It also discolors the potatoes. I used to counter act this by only cooking meats in one area of the grill and other items in the upper left corner.
