Detroit-style pizza.

Meh, there are probably more than a few users on this board who think pizza made outside the NY/NJ/CT tri-state area should be required by law to be called something other than pizza, or just banned from existing entirely

Nah.  This new marketing gimmick of "Detroit-style pizza" is stupid.

Reminds me of when people went gaga over "chai" as if it was some new-fangled hot drink.  In a lot of languages, "chai" just means "tea."

Is it a marketing gimmick of the style of pizza dates back to 1946?

No, that's not enough, it has to be from some very select neighborhood bordered by 5 numbered streets in NYC or it doesn't count. Even if they've never tried to make a pizza in their entire lives.

Also, if the 4th Earl of Sandwich didn't handle the same ingredients, than it's not a sandwich; merely stuff cobbled together on bread.

Steak. I'd rather eat a burger than steak. Steak is still good, but it gets so much hype that I don't think is warranted.

And also, other people tell you how they think you should eat it. This is much less common with burgers. So, burgers win out from the eating-in-peace criterion as well.

I still prefer a chop steak to a real steak anyway.

So basically a burger or hot tartare, yeah?  :)

Yeah, basically a hamburger patty.  Put some gravy on that bad boy, and I think it's just as good as a steakóbut 90% less likely to be stringy/tough/otherwise hard to eat.

Bang for the buck? Sure. But if price were no object.

As I said, I think a burger is just as good as a steak, but far less likely to be turn out bad.

The big thing for me that puts a burger over the top is how easy they are to consume.  Steak requires extensive amounts of cutting and utensil use.

The best steak I've had, yes, was better than the best burger I've had.  But not by a whole lot, honestly.  And I've had plenty of steaks I wished I hadn't orderedóbut very few such burgers.
