If I could eat any food without the fear of gaining weight, I'd say that the majority of my diet would consist of cheeseburgers. Something about melted cheese and meat and mayo and ketchup and tomatoes and all other sorts of fixins carefully assembled on a warm and shiny bun just sexually awakens my stomach, if that makes any sense.
And when it comes to anything that anyone's passionate about, people hold strong opinions. Now, I definitely have my preferred burger spots , depending on what kind of burger I'm in the mood for. If I want something big and pickly, I'd say Tops Diner's Jimmy Lee Burger is tough to beat. But if we're talking about burger chain burgers, then it's really hard to go wrong with Jake's Wayback.
But when you're talking about the quintessential, hands down, everyone will probably love it, "best burger" you've got to start throwing around the big names in the conversation.
