America’s Favorite Burger Toppings

favorite burger toppings

The best burgers come with incredible toppings. It’s not just the type of toppings, it’s the amount. At Doghouse Pizza, we go big or go home! But we know that if we pile on too many toppings, a burger can be challenging to eat. Skimp on toppings, and the burger becomes boring. (We’d never do that.)

The best burger toppings combinations are any of the following groups:

  • Veggie toppings – lettuce, tomatoes, and onions
  • Condiments – ketchup, mayonnaise, and mustard
  • Cheese – any variety, with American, cheddar, and Swiss as the most popular burger toppings

Online polls have revealed the most popular burger toppings in America:

  1. Bacon
  2. Cheddar cheese
  3. Lettuce
  4. Ketchup
  5. Onions
  6. Tomatoes
  7. Mayonnaise
  8. Pickles
  9. Mushrooms
  10. BBQ sauce

At Doghouse Pizza, are burgers are lit! Our six-ounce cheeseburgers are made from scratch and served with our house sawce and lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. You can add bacon too! (Because it’s awesome, not because it’s number one in the poll.)

Bacon in Different Forms and Sizes

Bacon is now almost pretty standard as a topping in many burgers. There are plenty of varieties now available – including honey glazed, hickory, smoked, or applewood.

At Doghouse Pizza, we pile bacon into our B.L.T., Pollo Loco, the C.B.R., Triple-Decker Club, the Gut Buster, the Booya, Maui’s Hook, and we’ll even put in on a pizza if you want.

Best Burger Toppings Combinations

Traditional side dishes are now going on top – another crazy trend in the burger world. Onion rings, guacamole, coleslaw, and potato fries that were once offered as sides are now among the most popular burger toppings in America. One burger chain decided to embrace the sides-as-toppings craze and stacked its burgers with garlic mashed potatoes, crispy onion straws, and gravy. Another created a new burger sandwich on its menu with chili as a topping.

Best Toppings to Spice Up a Burger

Ketchup, mayonnaise, and mustard are old school condiments. While they are still popular today, more and more burger restaurants are slathering their meat with out-of-the-box ideas. Among the best burger topping combinations are creamy horseradish sauce, habanero bacon sauce, creamy black pepper sauce, and honey bacon mayonnaise. Fancy restaurants are topping their thick burgers with aioli, bleu cheese, seasoned butter, caramelized onions, barbecue sauce, chipotle, roasted garlic, and other special herbs.

Where’s the Beef?

In the modern burger world, the beef patty is no longer the star. The core of this meat-heavy dish is now sandwiched in between more proteins. Burger sliders are now loaded with bacon, pastrami, pepperoni, roast beef, steak, chicken fillets, meatballs, beef brisket, pulled pork, and even Spam.

Come to Doghouse to Get Your Perfect Burger

Doghouse Pizza caters to those who love burgers. And for folks with big appetites, we make the Get Right. This is our signature sandwich that’s made with two slices of toast, two burger patties with cheese and fries topped with nacho cheese, bacon, and caramelized onions. It is off the chain! If you’re not quite ready for all that, perhaps the Half Right is more your speed. It’s half the size of the get right with one piece of toast and one burger patty with cheese. We add the bacon, onions, and nacho cheese on top too.
