Burger

This may seem like a misplaced holiday after all the grilling we just did. But TODAY is National Hamburger Day for some reason.

Here are four stats on our burger-eating habits, according to a survey of 1,000 Americans . . .

1. Our favorite burger topping is cheese. 79% of Americans like it on their burgers. The rest of the top five are lettuce, 71% . . . tomatoes, 66% . . . onions, 58% . . . and pickles, 54%. They didn't ask about condiments for some reason.

2. Our favorite type of cheese to use on burgers is American, but just barely. 66% like American cheese . . . 65% like cheddar . . . 43% like Swiss . . . 40% like pepper jack . . . and 31% like provolone.

3. Our five favorite burger chains are McDonald's, Five Guys, Wendy's, Burger King, and Steak 'n Shake.

4. And according to the survey, the five cities that love burgers the most are Seattle, Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, and Miami.
