When I make them at home, it's just a blend of ground sirloin and ground chuck with just enough salt to enhance the flavor of the beef.
Five Guys is okay. If you're ever in the Akron area, Swenson's drive in is a good place to try.
I had Wendy's for the first time about a year ago and it was pretty decent. I think they revamped their menu last year and the quality was better.
If I'm going to go fast food for a burger, I'll stand in line for the Shake Shack.
