This seems like a misplaced holiday after all the grilling we just did. But today, the day AFTER Memorial Day is National Hamburger Day for some reason.

Here are four stats on our burger-eating habits, according to a survey of 1,000 Americans, see if this matches your burger eating preferences:

  • Our favorite burger topping is cheese. 79% of Americans like it on their burgers.  The rest of the top five are lettuce, 71% tomatoes, 66% onions, 58% and pickles, 54%. They didn't ask about condiments for some reason, but pretty sure ketchup is mandatory.
  • Our favorite type of cheese to use on burgers is American, but just barely. 66% like American cheese 65% like cheddar 43% like Swiss 40% like pepper jack and 31% like provolone.
  • Our five favorite burger chains are McDonald's, Five Guys, Wendy's, Burger King, and Steak 'n Shake. Well, we have three of those here in the Cedar Valley.
  • And according to the survey, the five cities that love burgers the most are Seattle, Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, and Miami. (Really?!)

So, do you agree?
