As far as fast food burgers go, I think Carls Jr. is definately the best. Western Bacon Cheeseburgers are amazing (they're huge, and there is a Double Western Bacon Cheeseburger!). If it's down to Big Mac vs. Whopper though, it's Big Mac all the way.
Nothing compares to home made though. I use a mix of 2/3 lean ground beef and 1/3 breakfast sausage in my patties, top them with sharp cheddar, diced white onion and light bbq sauce (mostly to get the onions to stick) and served on a sliced sourdough roll with shallot butter. They're incredible.
I prefer the meat on the Whopper, but Big Macs are overall better tasting I think. Burger King's burgers are just too dry to fully enjoy.
The only thing that has any distinct taste in McDonalds burgers is the sauce so I have no idea what your talking about. Dry? I've had a couple (one just last week) dry burgers at McDonalds (not to mention them being grey slabs of 'unspecified animal product') While BK has really flavorful grilled pieces of meat with a surface that looks like it has actually been introduced to heat, good sauces and a surprising amount of fresh salad and big tomato slices something which I find McDonalds lacks.
Was never a fan of the Whooper, I love me a Wendy's Baconator but it's one of those things I only want from time to time and I don't really care for anything on the KFC menu. So I voted Big Mac as I just ate one after work today and can consistently eat them more so then the other choices. But as a if I could only eat one for the rest of my life sort of deal, I would go with the Wendy's Baconator.
Wendy's takes it for me, meat is better, toppings are better and I like the even like the way it comes apart after 2 bites. Big Mac has the edge on sauce, not a huge Whopper fan.
A couple friends and I went to a burger king once around the time the new King Kong movie came out. When we pulled up to order we discovered that Burger King was doing a promotion where they were offering a triple whopper or ' The Kong Burger'.
Kong. Burger. When it finally came time for me to order I was only able get out the words "Hi, I'd like the Kong bu" before the entire car erupted in hysterical laughter. I tried to in vain complete my order but I was laughing so hard I couldn't even utter the words and eventually my buddy who was driving simply had to drive away in embarrassment. We left without even pulling up to pay or get our food.
One of the dumbest and inexplicably funniest moments of my life.
I don't see why I would want either. Both are shit and not even real burgers. The poll is missing an option for real food.
On the subject of dry burgers, you are both right. It just depends on how long the burgers have been sitting in the hot box. Both are equally "juicy" straight out of the "broiler" but the the time they spend in the hot box will eventually cause them to to lose all 24 percents of fat they stuff inside it.
