This is the place I always want to go when my family is grabbing some fast food. This exact burger is what I will order every time, with onions, pickles, and mustard.

What's your favorite fast food cheeseburger?

I'm a long-time lover of McDonald's Quarter-Pounder with Cheese and would never turn down a #2 combo with my favorite fast-food fries, and a Diet Coke, but this 'Best Fast Food Cheeseburger' winner just hits different. It's also really hard to explain HOW it hits different.

Is it what they do to that bun?

Is it how they cook the burger?

Is it those red onions?

Could it be that Wisconsin-made cheese?

It's really ALL THOSE THINGS. All of those attributes make it hit different and worth every second of that wait after having to pull forward.

You won't be getting any flaccid lettuce or translucent tomatoes. Every one of these beauties is made-to-order...

This is the ideal fast food burger, one that feels like it came from a mom n’ pop shop, and whose flavor is all the more transcendent with a side of cheese curds and a frozen custard.
