Ever wanted to figure out which burger restaurant chain constitutes as the most popular in the U.S. or your home state?
Lettuce tell you all about it.

A new map has documented how many people eat what type of burger and where.


Food, drink and travel website Thrillist went through over 20 million check-ins on Foursquare, a location-based application that people use to register their whereabouts and leave tips for others.


The winner? Hardee's, home of the Mile High Burgers.

DAIRY QUEEN: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014...r_in_one_area_Dairy_Que-110_1416523582266.jpg
Dairy Queen: While not specifically popular in one area. Dairy Queen did fairly well across the board, although surprisingly low in Florida and Texas


http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014...reasing_chain_has_moved-111_1416523587698.jpg
Five Guys Burgers and Fries: This ever-increasing chain has moved out of Washington DC and up into the Eastern Seaboard



http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014..._Krystal_dominated_in_t-113_1416523594839.jpg
Krystal: Although concentrated in one area, Krystal dominated in the southwest, especially Tennessee, where it's from

http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014...eir_triple_meat_hamburg-117_1416523613624.jpg
Whataburger: Texans have a firm hold of their triple meat hamburgers and aren't letting it



http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014...and_St_Louis_and_Harold-118_1416523617249.jpg
White Castle: New Jersey, Kentucky, Chicago and St. Louis - and Harold and Kumar - love White Castle



The restaurant took the most amount of states - especially Montana, North Dakota, the Carolinas and West Virginia - but was also spread fairly well across the country.

Surprisingly the dominant franchises - McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's - registered the lowest in popularity.

McDonald's: As with Burger King and Wendy's, McDonald's did not register well on FourSquare, mostly because people wouldn't likely check-in at the Golden Arches

Lets keep in mind, popular doesn't mean good. Obama was popular that should help keep this point in mind.

To be "fair" several subcategories should be used. A simple start would be price. Burgers for less than $3.00, $3.00-4.99, and $5.00 and over. Of course this still does not deal with quality/taste but it is a start.
