How much are you willing to spend on a burger?
Burger prices have skyrocketed over the years as more and more non-burger-specific eateries have added gourmet patties to their menu. But most folks aren't ready to embrace the pricey burger trend: only 20% said that they were willing to pay $15-$19.99 for a burger, only 5% would pay $20-$24.99 and only 5% would pay $25 or more. The sweet spot for burger prices seems to be $10-$14.99, as 52% of survey participants said this is the most they'd pay. But of course, there are those special occasions. But only 44% said they'd pay over $25 for a mind-blowing burger.
Still, some high-priced burgers did very well in our survey, including the $27 Black Label Burger at NYC's Minetta Tavern, the $23 Bristol Burger at Boston's Bristol Lounge and the $34 Original db Burger at Miami's db Bistro Moderne, the costliest dish out of all of the winners.
On the other end of the spectrum, the cheapest offering among our winners is the No. 5 "Double Meat" Special at Keller's Drive-In in Dallas. It's two patties with cheese and toppings for just $2.69.
