Worst burger topping of all time? Or least favorite, whichever

    Personally, I think pickles and lettuce take away from the overall Cheeseburger experience...

    Pickles tend to be over-powering, while lettuce wilts under the heat. I like to save my burgers until the next day on some occasions and these two toppings just do not stand the test of time.

      I actually like dill pickles on my cheeseburger, but bread and butter pickles taste gross on a burger.

      Well ... for me "the worst" is the actual burger itself smile .... I'm vegetarian. However .... my all-time fav combo is a smoke seasoned veggie burger with portabello mushroom, melted cheese (yes I still have cheese in my vegetarian diet), chopped onions and jalapeno peppers  with LOTS of ketchup ..... mmm .. mmm ... good! smile

    Well I take out the tomato usually, but I like cheese(pepperjack/american/provolone), lettuce and ketchup. Mayonaise and mustard are never a bad idea either. I don't put the pickle in my burger, but I do eat it, thats no question.

    Not exactly a topping, but some U.S. state fairs are now featuring burgers that have buns replaced with glazed donuts.

    fast food pickles are terrible and that "special sauce" at McDonalds is really bad, in fact I hate McDonalds' food - all of it!!

    Slimy onions are pretty gross.

    I did not grow up with the classic "California" burger that comes with tomato, lettuce and the bun slathered in mayo.
    Mayo? On ground beef?

    Just gimme the basics. Ketchup, a little mustard and a little relish and I'm good.

    I hate it when chains try to create some limited-time specialty burger and they want to throw on some hickory barbeque sauce or one fried onion ring.  If I want bbq sauce I'll order bbq.  I don't want it on my hamburger.  If I want onion rings I'll just get a separate order.

    Lol KCC. I take it you are not a fan of the BK rodeo cheeseburger -- which has both of those items. Gag!

    Come to think of it, green peppers are not a natural fit, though they are on a lot of menus.

    Five Guys offers green peppers, but unless they're grilled, forget it!

    Jalapenos are the best.

    Avocados next.

    Worst, lettuce.
