Why do fast food burgers taste way better than home made hamburgers?

    I would suggest next time you make burgers do this:

    Add 3 or 4 times as much salt as the recipe says, a spoonful of sugar, and make sure the meat is around 25% fat. Make the burger, press it thin as you can.

    Cook it quickly on a grill. Let it go cold then freeze it. 24 hours will be enough. 

    Defrost it in a combination microwave oven

    Put it on a plain seeded bun with half a slice of tomato, some curly lettuce a slice of pickle and slather it with ketchup and mayo.

    Wrap it tightly in paper while it's still hot so the bread goes flat and soggy

    Wait 5 minutes then unwrap it and eat it.

    Won't taste homemade then.

    that is the authors SUBJECTIVE OPINION , many people may have the OPINION that when they or  others in the household   prepare  " their "  hamburgers , because they may     use  various ground  meats such as  beef , pork , chicken , lamb, turkey  or perhaps a combo , even vegetable or BEAN as well as spices or herbs and is PLEASING to their palette a BEEF patty " HAMburger  has no HAM in it  the word ORIGIN is from GERMAN  the town HAMBURG from the HAMBURG STEAK sandwich   similar to FRANFUTER and the WIENER  names for  MEAT based foods  from certain CITIES  such as VIENNA and VIENNA sausages

    HAMBURGER  is defined  by some as GROUND BEEF  by others ( wikipedia)  of a sandwich consisting of one or more patties of Ground MEAT   placed inside a bun  sliced bread or a roll  the patty MAY be  pan fried  grilled smoked or flame broiled  they  are often served with  cheese lettuce tomato onion pickle bacon or chilies condiments  ketchup mustard  mayo relish or special sauce  "BURGER" can apply to  turkey BISON  or VEGGIE

    perhaps resubmit the question under POLLS and SURVEY  to get DATA  to confirm or contradict  the PROPOSITION  presented : Fast food burgers  taste better

       the term FAST FOOD is very broad lacks any specifics  'FAST FOOD "  is defined as ANY FOOD  that can be prepared QUICKLY and easily and is SOLD in restaurants and snack bars  as a quick meal or be taken out that can be Joe's local deli   to McD   V-J veggie palace  or Ruby Tuesday

    GREAT QUESTION and so true!  I go out and buy perfectly shaped burgers, the mayo, cheese, the soft sesame seed covered buns, seasonings, lettuce, all of it and make home made burgers which are good, but nothing like the flavor you get from a SONIC or FIVE GUYS.  And it gets pricey going to these places after you got a family of 4 wanting double cheeseburgers, fries, onion rings, milkshakes and sodas.  In fact, I was thinking of making burgers tonight, but now you got me craving SONIC!  :)

    They don't.  Why do you think they do?  There is more to making a hamburger than squishing ground beef (and ONLY ground beef) into a vaguely round shape.
