Hamburgers are tiny models of America: midwestern beef sandwiched between two buns, or “coasts,” flanked by fries for the Hawaiian islands and punctuated with a pickle representing Alaska’s ability to get out of pickles.

The hamburger helmsmen at Fuddruckers compile a menu of handcrafted burgers from 100% American beef and house-made buns. Carnivorous connoisseurs choose a burger made from third-pound ($5.29) to a full pound ($8.99) of free-range beef. Seduce experimental taste buds or the ghost of William Cody with a buffalo burger ($7.99+), ostrich burger ($9.99), or veggie burger ($6.49). Once grilled and set on a freshly baked bun, the patty buckles under your selections from the market-fresh produce bar, replete with the usual burger accouterments as well as grilled onions, guacamole, and bacon ($0.75–$1.25). Those who prefer to leave the gustatory designing to the professionals can order a specialty burger ($6.79–$10.49) such as the bacon- and mushroom-bestrewn Works burger. A three-cheese burger, meanwhile, comes layered with cheddar, swiss, and monterey jack cheeses, which patrons can cover with a crisp layer of money to create a burger with four cheeses.
