Mlive.com – In honor of National Cheeseburger Day (which is Sept. 18), we thought we would order up a mess of burgers from popular Fast Food chains, put them in a pile and see who came out on top.
Amy Sherman and I took one for the team, all in the name of “research,” of course, and subjecting our stomachs to repeated doses of burger, cheese and a number of toppings that were somewhat edible, but not very enjoyable.
You see, the two of us make up the Michigan’s Best team at MLive, and we’re more accustomed to incredible meals made by chefs and short order cooks who take a lot of care and pride in sourcing local and making homemade meals every day.
But we know many of you are on the run, and you don’t have 45 minutes to an hour to place an order and sit down and eat.
We also know that Fast Food offers value meals and cheaper fare, which is ideal when you’re on a budget and can’t afford to splurge.
I’ll list the rankings below for anyone that wants to quickly take a glance but I have no problem with numero uno. I disagree with a couple of the places and where they ranked them but mmm mmmm mmmm 5 Guys is fucking delicious.
- 5 Guys
- Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers
- Sonic Drive-In
- Steak & Shake
- Burger King
