20. Del Taco: Double Del Cheeseburger
> Approximate price: $3.39

Unlike Taco Bell, this chain (which has locations only in the South, the West, and parts of the Midwest) offers burgers as well as Mexican-ish fare. The Double Del combines two patties with tomatoes, lettuce, diced onions, American cheese, and the house burger sauce.

19. Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s: BLT Ranch Angus Thickburger
> Approximate price: $5.99

At these sister chains (Carl’s Jr. in the West, Hardee’s in the East), this specialty burger — slightly thicker than the usual fast-food patty — comes with American cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and dill ranch dressing on a toasted potato bun.

18. Jack in the Box: The Jumbo Jack

Considered this chain’s flagship burger, the Jumbo Jack tops its patty with lettuce, tomato, pickles, chopped onions, ketchup, and Jack in the Box’s own mayo-onion sauce.

17. Smashburger: Classic Smash
> Approximate price: $5.29

American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickles, ketchup, and Smash Sauce (a mustardy mayo with chopped pickles) add up to a “classic” here.
