These days it can be pretty hard to define American food. Being the Land of Immigrants, America is home to a variety of different types of cuisines. The ethnic foods that we are used to are really altered recipes, influenced by American tastes and ingredients. Still, nothing says American like a burger. Ask an American what food is typical to the American diet and they will likely say burgers and fries. Diners all across the United States offer a variety of amazing burgers. They differentiate themselves by the quality of meat they use, the amount of patties they provide, and of course nothing stands out more than the way a restaurant tops their burgers. If you are not a fan of ground beef, many burger restaurants make a variety of burgers these days made from options like chicken, turkey meat, or vegetables. Some places even offer tofu burgers. With so many sauces and styles to choose from, you are sure to find something you like at your local burger joint. The typical way to enjoy a good burger is with either a frosty beer or cold milk shake. Fries are the typical burger side dish, but many restaurants offer other fried treats like onion rings and fried zucchini. There are different types of burger restaurants. Fast food burger joints serve generic burgers. These days you can customize your burger by asking them to leave or add ingredients, but typically your options are limited at a fast food restaurant. Another way to enjoy a burger is at a chain restaurant. These restaurants usually serve a larger variety of juicy burgers and offer a casual atmosphere. You might not think that a burger restaurant is a great place to go on a first date because burgers tend to be so messy; however, if a guy sees you enjoying a burger he might be impressed and it might also make the encounter more relaxed.
