Much like pizza and ice cream, burgers are pretty darn good even when they’re bad. To ensure every burger you order is the best it can be, though, you must devour it in the right way. Here are a few of the most popular approaches for elevating the culinary experience when it comes to enjoying a mouthwatering burger.
3 Ways to Eat a Burger
1. Upside Down
Eating a burger upside down might sound as crazy as eating a cupcake upside down—also a great idea, by the way—but once you try this novel approach, you’ll never go back. Because the top half of the bun is thicker than the bottom, it absorbs all the juices better, especially if you prefer your meat on the rare side. Chowing down on an inverted burger also allows all the toppings—including melted cheese, crisp lettuce, and crunchy onions—to tickle your tastebuds with every bite.
2. With All the Fixings
If you don’t have to hold it with both hands, is it even worth eating? Some diehard experts are of the opinion that when it comes to devouring burgers, the messier, the better. In other words, throw on all your favorite toppings and then some. (Just make sure you have plenty of napkins before taking that first bite.)
3. In Dainty Halves
If you’re on a date—or you simply want to get the perfect ratio of bun to beef to topping in every bite—slicing the burger in half first. This will allow you to enjoy even the tallest burgers without having to tuck a napkin into your collar.
For burgers, beer, and all the fixings, head to your local Buffalo Wild Wings.

Burgers aren’t all that’s on the menu, though. Whether you’re craving hot wings, fruity cocktails, or street tacos, they've got you covered. To find the location nearest you, visit their website.
