Just sitting here eating burger king wondering what people eat first

Side dish -> main dish -> drink.

I don't touch the latter until I'm finished with the former.

#2 Posted by Nasar7 (2618 posts) -

I eat both at the same time but usually have some fries left over after finishing the burger.

I'm weirdly against the idea of eating one item and then moving to the next. This is all on one plate because it's meant to be enjoyed together. Goes for most meals. Generally speaking, there will be a few fries leftover after I've finished the burger.

I don't eat burgers.

#5 Edited by SMTDante89 (2564 posts) -

Sitting inside a restaurant, it's usually fries first then the burger. Riding in a vehicle, it's usually burger first.

Edit: While reading a few posts after this one I decided to clarify a bit. At least when I'm inside of a restaurant, I focus on eating the fries first, but usually eat some of the burger while eating the fries, but I typically finish the fries first. However, nothing changes when I'm riding in someone's car though, I typically eat the burger in its entirety before starting on fries.

Now if I'm at my college's cafeteria, I do eat things one at a time though, not sure why.

I'll probably grab a few fries before taking my first bite of the burger, but I'll put that burger down and have some more fries before I finish it. Back and forth, sipping on my drink as well.

I feel the same, generally.

I am not a god damn robot.

If it's feasible, I'll eat a little of both. Though if it's one of those giant restaurant burgers that's impossible to put down and pick up again safely once you've picked it up, I'll eat the burger first.

I take bites of the burger and then also eat a few fries at the same time to get a combination of the flavors.

#13 Posted by Flappy (2198 posts) -

A little bit of both. Duh.

#14 Posted by falserelic (5412 posts) -

Shit, I think I might buy a burger tomorrow now, but to answer the question it depends on my mood.

#15 Posted by VeggiesBro (121 posts) -

Both.

#16 Posted by Clonedzero (4200 posts) -

You know who eats them one at a time? Serial killers.

#17 Posted by Ben_H (3342 posts) -

Both. My dad is a militant fries first person though. It is usually his downfall at sitdown restaurants though.

#18 Posted by davidwitten22 (1708 posts) -

Mostly I will eat my fries first, but I'll take a bite of my burger or chicken sandwich or wahtever once I'm done with half the fries.

It's because I hate cold fries.

#19 Edited by dungbootle (2457 posts) -

I try to eat them concurrently but it usually ends up with me finishing the fries last

Fries then burger like a normal person. Unless I get like a plain ol cheeseburger, in which case I put the fries on the burger and eat the leftover fries after. It always feels weird to have fries left after the burger though.

#22 Edited by Mechanical_Ape (251 posts) -

I don't like fries and I don't eat them even if they come with whatever I ordered. So I guess my answer would be hamburger. When I do eat a meal with multiple things, I always finish one before moving onto the next. I like to taste each thing individually and not have a bunch of different tastes all mixed together.

#23 Posted by SteadyingMeat (1153 posts) -

A little bit of both. I also stuff fries inside the burger sometimes.

#24 Posted by MightyDuck (1521 posts) -

A little of both here and there.

#25 Posted by StudsMcKewl (68 posts) -

Fries first, otherwise they get cold.

#26 Edited by ThatFrood (3375 posts) -

The instant I pick up a hamburger, I don't put it down until I finish it, generally.

In addition, I could care less about the fries. They're there to distract me from enjoying my burger. I'll get to them after I'm finished.

Unless they're cheese fries, in which case I'm torn, but I'll usually eat them first.

#27 Posted by Gnubberen (765 posts) -

Burger first since that's what I came for. I'd rather have left over fries than a half eaten burger.

#28 Posted by TruthTellah (8801 posts) -

What am I, a beast? Of course I'd eat a little bit of both.

Usually, fries are finished last since the burger is the main point of the meal, but that back and forth is important. Waiting would mean eating one of them once they had gotten colder. It's optimal to eat a bit of both while at their freshest.

Clearly OP is not from Pittsburgh. Simultaneous should be an option for our Rust Belt friends.

#30 Posted by insane_shadowblade85 (1421 posts) -

Whenever I find myself eating a burger I usually eat a few fries first before I take a bite of my burger.

#31 Edited by BombcastGoldthwait (250 posts) -

Fries first. Always. And if I had my way, I would have whoever eats the burger first be put in jail for at least 25 years.

#33 Edited by Karkarov (3071 posts) -

First I take a nibble of my burger and savor it's juicy flavor and texture. Then after washing it down with a swig from a fine beverage I begin to sample my fries. I will then take another bite of my delicious burger. At this point I tend to then finish the fries so that I may take a good swallow of my chosen drought and then proceed in earnest to my hamburger delicacy.

Yeah, that's about right.

#34 Posted by believer258 (11802 posts) -

Is this like socks vs barefoot in house or gifs vs jifs? Cause it's burgers, socks, gifs, and you're crazy if you don't have at least two outta three.

#35 Posted by ArtisanBreads (3802 posts) -

A little bit of both but you gotta go fries first more. Don't let em get cold!

Also fries on your burger is great.

#36 Edited by mjk0104 (201 posts) -

Fries first, I always find I end up finishing the burger and the drink otherwise and getting really thirsty after the fries. Plus, I'd rather have the taste of burger left over than the taste of overly salted fries.

#37 Posted by pygmy7 (22 posts) -

Depends. If I'm driving, I'll eat the fries first. If I'm eating at the place, I eat a little of both.

#38 Posted by CrazyBagMan (841 posts) -

I feel like it's super weird if people break down their meals into such rigid stages. Eat all of it at once.

#39 Edited by BIGJEFFREY (4955 posts) -

add fries to burgers.

#40 Posted by donfonzie (206 posts) -

Its always fries first.

#41 Edited by TheManWithNoPlan (5430 posts) -

I usually eat all of my meals, that include multiple items, at once.

#43 Edited by Vuud (1959 posts) -

I blend them up and DRINK MY FUCKING BURGER AND FRIES. That's how I derive MAXIMUM POWER from every possible minute of life.

#44 Posted by steveurkel (135 posts) -

I just went to McDonalds and got a BBQ Ranch Burger. This burger is a lie and has frito things on it it does not have BBQ nor ranch.

To answer your question - does it really fucking matter? Let someone shove food into their dumb face however they want and don't ask me why they do it that way. The correct answer is to have a palate and enjoy eating each item at the same time not eating one thing then another like a dumb baby.

#45 Posted by ajamafalous (11959 posts) -

Depends on where it's from, honestly.

#46 Posted by Hunter5024 (5617 posts) -

I don't even understand why you would wait. The point is the variety. I don't really like fries though.

#47 Posted by overnow (150 posts) -

Burger->Fries->Drink

Sometimes I may sip some of the drink before I'm done eating, but this is rare. I do fries second because if it's fast food then they go into the box the burger was in and ketchup goes in the other side unoccupied by fries, if it's at sit down and eat restaurant I go burger first because they are generally more filling and I'd rather leave some fries than leave some burger.

#48 Posted by UngratefulDead (68 posts) -

If I'm in the car, I eat the french fries first since it's easier to just dip my hand into the bag and grab some of those. Otherwise, I eat the burger first then the french fries.

You know, it's odd. Fast food is pretty much the only kind of food where I have a set order. Normally I just eat everything at once.

#49 Edited by Lyisa (343 posts) -

Fries taste terrible if you have to reheat them.

Burgers can be reheated fine.

I eat the fries first. If I don't they're going straight into the trash.

#50 Posted by tsutohiro (364 posts) -

It depends. If I get it from the drive-thru then I'm shoving fries in my face before I even pull out, but otherwise, like if I'm sitting down with the whole meal, I take a serious bite of the burger first.

...after that totally I mix it up, so I voted "little of both".
