As the nation’s favorite burger chains struggle to gain traction with consumers, diners are beginning to take notice.
It’s a trend that has led to more and more classic burgers becoming increasingly popular.
But what are the best classic burger chains in the country?
A new study from the website Eater found that a burger that was once considered a “treat” could now become a “must-have” at some of the nations best classic-style restaurants.
According to Eater, more than a third of classic-food burger restaurants are now served by chains that cater to a crowd of more than 10,000 people.
While some may see the growth as a positive trend, others may find it to be a detriment.
While some of these chains offer classic burgers for less than $5, some offer them for more than $15.
And the prices may vary from establishment to establishment.
Eater also found that many of the traditional burgers have become “catering staples” in some of America’s most expensive locations.
Eater’s findings, based on a survey of nearly 1,400 classic-restaurant burger-and-chicken restaurants in 20 states, were released last week.
While these are generally considered a great time to eat classic burgers, the restaurant-and/or diner industry is in need of more money, as the food industry is undergoing a downturn and the country’s economy is struggling.
“Classic burgers are a popular meal and a great place to eat,” said Craig Bierman, executive director of the American Restaurant and Lodging Association, which represents many of these classic-friendly chains.
“The American palate is big and varied, and we need the right food for it.”
The American Restaurant Association (ARA) estimates that more than 90 percent of diners eat classic-meat meals at a restaurant.
But with some of its more upscale restaurants offering classics for just $5 and a few more offering more than half-price options, a lot of customers are still hesitant to eat a classic-type meal.
Echoing the concerns of customers, the Restaurant Association says there are “a lot of things to worry about” with this shift, from pricing to ingredients.
While most restaurants still have a “dinner” option, the new menus, which offer an array of classics and a variety of cheeses, meats and salads, may make diners more selective.
The AMA estimates that in 2018, more diners ordered more than 8 million classic-menu items at more than 500 restaurants across the country.
These included some $50 billion in sales at traditional-restoration restaurants alone.
As for the diners themselves, Bierfield said that while he has never personally eaten a classic, the change is a welcome one.
“It’s a little bit of a surprise,” he said.
“There are a lot more people who are looking for classic food.”
While many classic-eating venues will offer more than one classic burger, it’s important to remember that a classic is just a hamburger, a burger with a bun, or a sandwich.
It doesn’t have any of the fancy ingredients like cheeses or toppings that make traditional-style burgers great.
“The American diner is not the same as the classic diner,” Bierma said.
In addition, he added, most diners still prefer the classic hamburger as the “great American sandwich” that they’ve always loved.
