Time Magazine picked their top 17 hamburgers of all time, the most ‘influential’ burgers of all time. They interviewed burger historians and industry experts to find which burgers had the biggest impact on the world at large.

There are a lot on this list I have never heard of but growing up in certain areas these burgers were probably popular. The hamburgers on the list I do know are in the top 5, so here they are.

At number 5 ‘The Whopper’ by Burger King. It was introduced in 1957 and has been a favorite ever since.

Number 4 is ‘The 21 Burger’ introduced in the late 1940’s or early 1950’s at the 21 Club in New York and was a high end burger with a price tag of $2.75, quite high at the time.

Number 3 goes to the ‘In-N-Out Burger’ sold at the In-N-Out Burger restaurants since 1948. There are 294 In-N-Out locations today.

Number 2 is the ‘McDonald’s Burger’. The original hamburger sold at McDonald’s that debut in San Bernardino, California, and is now served in 118 countries around the world.

Number 1 is the ‘White Castle Slider’ which debuted in 1921 in Wichita, Kansas. This was the first hamburger to spawn a fast-food empire.
