The Hamburges they sell are just plastic with some plastic in the middle when compared to real Hamburgers.
Is anyone with me? I hate those fast food burgers.
The ones you make yourself or get at Telemarkssvingen Norway are the real ones......

Well tell that to the Hamburglar... he'll think otherwise.

I personally could go for mcdonalds hamburgers, depending on what Hamburger eating mood im in.

I love McDonald's Hamburgers - the plastic like cheese is more than outdone by the delicious taste.

[Im not an advertiser btw, I just like Mcdonalds]

I only like Burger King's burgers, and sometimes Wendy's.

I like McDonalds burgers, but in my opinion BK's are better.

#7 Posted by Logan (53 posts) -

I only eat burgers from restaurants and my own grill.

However if I am going to eat a fast food burger In n' Out is the way to go.

#8 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8061 posts) -

I still like them.

i concur with TC

#10 Posted by Jolly_Lolly (3537 posts) -

I agree, but those 2 classic cheeseburgers are the ONLY exception in my book. Everything else on the menu is off-limits for me.

McDonald's is something I typically eat when I'm too drunk to recognize or make real food.  While their ninety-nine cent double-cheeseburger might not compete with other restaurant's offerings, at three a.m. on a wednesday with a belly full of whiskey it could be made out of afterbirth and sawdust for all I care.

Mc donalds Hamburgers are hamburgers, they just nice hamburgers. Of course the nice ones are in real hamburger joints, diners and the such. Fast food hamburgers is what Mcdonalds is. So small, so plastic-ie but when I'm in the mood for trashy food I don't care.

I live in Norway as well and I like the burgers you can get at ESSO (gas stations) and also I think that mcdonalds hamburgers are still real hamburgers

#14 Posted by Wolverine (4281 posts) -

 I think McDonald's hamburgers are all right.

#15 Posted by MattyFTM (14369 posts) -

Yeah, they are horrible. And whats with the buns, they're always soggy.

I have to dissagree macdonalds burgers are hamburgurs, unfortunately they make the promise that each time you get one it will be the "exact" same as the last one so there is no love in the burger making, I know as i work in one here in the UK, still 100% pure beef

#17 Posted by unclejohnny79 (685 posts) -

I have yet to try a hamburger from them

#18 Posted by 1oneWON (87 posts) -

Of the "Big 3" - Mickey D's, BK, and Wendy's - BK and Wendy's aren't bad (I prefer Wendy's, they're really quite good for fast food that's not In N Out) and McDonald's is horse manure. Period. McDonald's is so bad. The only thing I get from there is the coffee. That's it...period.

#19 Posted by microwavedapple (160 posts) -

I think Maccy D's burgers are delicious. But then again, I've never been able to tell the difference between good food and bad food.

Wow. Really?
#21 Posted by zeus_gb (595 posts) -

Agreed McDonalds burgers aren't anywhere near the best and home made ones are so much better.  If i'm out and about then fast food burgers just have to do.

#22 Posted by Moridin (714 posts) -

I despise McDonald's... Wendy's all the way.

#23 Posted by megagene (140 posts) -

The double cheeseburger is one of the greatest things you can buy for under $1.50

#24 Edited by GaspoweR (2960 posts) -

Well, its a lil' exaggerated to say that they are not hamburgers but I have to agree they are pretty generic. I'd rather eat a McDonald's salad...or hash browns...or Popeye's Chicken (wait...they're not burgers...=P)

#25 Posted by MadExponent (305 posts) -

Dude the dollar double cheese burger is probably a gift from god.  It's amazing and only ONE DOLLAR!  What more can you ask for.  It's greasy goodness.  Tip: Ask them to not put on pickles and instead put on big mac sauce, they should do it.   AMAZING.

#26 Posted by MagusMaleficus (1035 posts) -

You folks that like McDonald's hamburgers, here's a suggestion: don't ever work in one. When you see an uncooked patty, it will turn you off of Mickey D's burgers for life.

#27 Posted by evilhomer (429 posts) -

i think of them as burger sustenance.  something to get me by until i get a real burger.  same thing with the crappy pizza my roommate gets which is basically pizza paste spread on cardboard bread.  w/e though Ive eaten worse shit before.

The biggest reason why i like McDonalds double cheese burgers is the price. One dollar is a hell of a good deal.

I think the Angus burger from McDonalds has the most actual real meat in it out of all the burgers there.

#30 Posted by Shotaro (820 posts) -

McDonalds have done a lot to improve recently though they are still far from perfect. If I'm hungry while out and about in town I will generally pick up a bacon cheeseburger for a quid and its good eating

#31 Posted by DarkArmada (132 posts) -

Hell yeah... "Takeaway style" hamburgers > McPlastic with Cheese

Aussie style burger with the LOT
Charming looking Cheeseburger

#32 Posted by Jay4321 (70 posts) -

It really gets one thinking how McDonald's can offer a DOUBLE Cheeseburger for $1...

#33 Posted by Jonage (42 posts) -

McDo's burgers are totally legit hamburgers dude ;)

McDonalds's "hamburgers" are tasty :D

#36 Posted by ZimpanX (420 posts) -

If I go to McDonald's it for the fries and the nice salad. The meat they use in their burgers is a joke.

#37 Posted by WhatistheAmero (33 posts) -

it is 'meat' at mcdonalds isn't it? that stuff's beefness is questionable.

#38 Posted by Falkien (211 posts) -

I actually liked McDonalds for the Chicken Nuggets.. but now I am older... that will not fill me up and the fries taste different...

#39 Posted by pwnmaster3001 (76 posts) -

Quarter Pounder w/ cheese FTW!!!!

other than that Micky D's burgers suck
try the chicken sandwiches or the salads, those are good!!
#40 Posted by SCOMGHCity (30 posts) -

I don't like any fast food restaruant hamburgers- period.

#41 Posted by danielcraig (9 posts) -

 Royal Cheese is the best burger at mcdonalds as ofnow.

#42 Posted by Gizmo (5389 posts) -

I could make a FAR greater home-made ham-burger, but for ease and speed, fast food joints are kk.

#43 Posted by OGCartman (4354 posts) -

Its an insault compared to other burgers

afterbirth? is that what i think it is? that's rough man.
#45 Posted by jtickner1 (116 posts) -

They're not the worst but they are by far not the best. I don't mind one every now 'n' then. Much prefer Hungry Jack's, but then, the good ol' corner store kicks the shit out of both of them.

#46 Posted by AllanIceman (1323 posts) -

McDonald's hamburgers are not the best but that new Angus one they got is not that bad.

#47 Posted by Shadow (4979 posts) -

hamburgers are not things you can be all high and mighty about.

#48 Posted by UnsungHero (49 posts) -

Yeah....Im a BK guy myself

#49 Posted by Albanian_Killa (72 posts) -

Heh, I like Big Macs. I don't eat McDonalds every day though. Probably once every three weeks, although probably not. McDonalds is just something you eat once in a while. It's not healthy, but it tastes great. You just gotta know when to stop. I consider a Big Mac a hamburger though.
