15. Burger King: The Whopper
> Approximate price: $4.29

The Whopper’s quarter-pound patty is piled high with tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, and sliced white onions and dressed with ketchup and mayo.

14. McDonald’s: Big Mac
> Approximate price: $3.99

This emblematic double-decker combines two patties (with a slice of bun between them), along with pickles, lettuce, chopped onion, and American cheese.

13. Whataburger: Original Whataburger
> Approximate price: $4.71

The signature burger at this beloved Texas-based chain (which has locations only in the South and Southwest) tops the patty with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, diced onions, and ketchup. Customization options include a brioche bun or Texas toast, pico de gallo, and various dressings at no extra charge plus a choice of five different cheeses and such additions as grilled jalapeños, avocado, and fire-roasted mushrooms for 55 cents to a buck.

12. White Castle: Cheese Slider
> Approximate price: $0.72

White Castle began popularizing the mini-burgers called sliders roughly a century ago, and the classic cheese slider is still a customer favorite. It’s a small patty steam-grilled over a bed of onions, then topped with American, jalapeño, or smoked cheddar cheese and served on a particularly fluffy little bun.
