Top Five  Burgers in the DeForest Area

#5 McDonalds Cheeseburger 

First off, if we are talking price wise McDonalds wins automatically. I mean, a dollar you can’t beat that. Also, it’s only 300 calories and that’s not that bad, at least in my book. Wait-time is very minimal and they always have cheeseburgers ready to go so you know you will get one. Taste-wise, I rate the McDonalds cheeseburger a 6/10 because it has pickles and that just adds more flavor which I ́m all about. 

#4 Culver’s ButterBurger 

The Original ButterBurger at Culver’s is a little bit more expensive than McDonald’s at $2.79 for 1. Also, it has more calories than the McDonalds cheeseburger – it has 390 calories. Unlike McDonald’s burger, the beef is completely fresh and you can tell when you taste it. When I’m eating a ButterBurger it tastes like my dad could have made it on the grill a little bit ago, not like a processed slab of meat. And because of that, I rate the Culver’s original ButterBurger a 9/10. 

#3 A&W Bacon Cheeseburger 

The Original Bacon Cheeseburger at A&W is a whopping $6.39 but is kinda justified because of the fact that it’s made from 100% U.S beef. The Bacon Cheeseburger has 442 calories, not that much more than previous burgers, and good considering there is bacon on it as well. I think the burger is good, but not 6 dollars good. If I’m paying 6 dollars for a burger I think it should come with a drink and fries, and that’s not included in this. Overall taste-wise I rate the A&W Bacon Cheeseburger a 7/10. 

#2 Burger King Whopper 

The Burger King Whopper is $5.29 including the meal. At 677 calories, although way more than the previous burgers, it has way more flavor as well. It includes a beef patty, mayonnaise, lettuce, sesame seeds, tomato, sliced onion, and pickles. The thing I like the most about this burger is you can ask to add guacamole and jalapeno peppers and they will do it for you for free. This burger has an overall outstanding flavor that’s why I give it an 8/10. 

#1 Deforest Family Restaurant Cheeseburger 

 The Deforest Family Restaurant cheeseburger not a fast food place but that’s why I think they have the best burger in Deforest. It’s the taste of home like your dad could have made it on the grill, but it comes way faster than waiting for all that which is why I like it so much. Another reason I like this burger because it is coming from a local business and by using my money there I’m putting money into the community, which is the best part. The Deforest Family Restaurant’s cheeseburger is $9.09; Money well-spent in my opinion. I rate this burger 10/10.
