It's never worth returning a hamburger over doneness.

Hamburgers, even "gourmet" ones, are still hamburgers. They're ground meat with a bunch of stuff piled on top, not a choice cut of steak.

I'm willing to bet there's a strong positive correlation between likelihood of calling oneself a "foodie" and taking hamburgers seriously enough to even consider sending one back because it was sightly overcooked.

I'm no foodie: Ethan's post made me crave some McDonalds or Chik-Fil-A. With that being said, I just don't enjoy burgers cooked well done. I have asked for them to remake it before because I ordered it medium rare and it has come out well done. Maybe it makes me a dick, maybe they spit in it, but at least I get to enjoy my burger.

I just had spicy pork bulgogi lunch (Korean nutriment). I don't have a super precise sense of how the pork is supposed to be cooked, so I just ate it up didn't even think twice about it.

Yeah--burgers aren't steak, but if they are using thick patties and fancy beef, they have to be done right.

If it came out super undercooked, I'd be tempted to send it back. I like color in my burger, but I have had a couple of burgers recently that came out what I would just call "rare". It can be hard to judge since one place's medium might be another place's medium-rare...but nobody is going to fault you for not wanting to eat raw meat if you didn't order it that way. I haven't sent one back yet...just remembered to order it one doneness level further if I go back.

On the overcooked side...I dunno. It would take more for me to return it. On one hand, if it was a good place with quality beef and toppings, it should still be good if a bit overdone. Kind of harsh to return something that still tastes pretty good for being a few degrees too hot.
On the other hand if you went to a place known for their fancy burgers specifically to cross that burger off your list, and they came out with a burnt chunk of beef? That sucks and is going to ruin your meal.

I'd probably cut it in half and take a bite from the center...if its really super dry and just not good (and cost $15 or more), I'd probably be willing to send it back. And at that point, you've got the other half, sliced cleanly through the center, showing an obviously overcooked burger.

I don't want to be a douchebag but if they ask me how I like my burger and I say medium rare and I get a burger that's completely grey and mealyl from end to end.. I'm not a douche enough to return a burger for being medium instead of medium rare... It's like what's the point of the question and I also don't see the point of paying for good beef only to have it cooked to shit. Fries come almost black. It's just a shame. The beef was good and fatty enough that it was ok even if completely grey. I could get that shit at Burger King for half the price

I mean have you never had super overcooked meat before that you had to pay for? You would never return it no matter what even if you're paying for the skills of a professional cook?

Also I said refire cuz piob said it... Jesus Christ styleforum. Nitpicking at everything. Can't a guy complain about something once in awhile and receive some love and support

As I said, context dependent. Fancy burger joint with fancy meat and it's way overcooked? I probably will ask for a refire. Five Guys or In/Out? You take the slop they give you because that's the deal.

When ever i order a burger and the waitress is hot, I ask for it Nyotaimori style and they always come back and say "call me later".
