INSIDER compared each chain's most basic burger offerings to one another.
A McDonald's hamburger in 1955 — when the company started — weighed 3.7 ounces, according to BuzzFeed.
The chain's iconic Big Mac — which prompted the Economist to begin publishing its Big Mac Index as an international indicator of comparative individual purchasing power in 1986 — . The Quarter Pounder didn't exist until 1971.
By contrast, Burger King's Whopper has been around since 1957 — and the patty was a 1/4 lb. weight, according to Politico. There are 16 oz. in a pound, so to keep a level playing field, that's 4 oz.
If you've never had one, White Castle burgers are also called sliders for several reasons — not the least of which is that they're tiny.
Weighing in at just 1/8 lb. per patty, they're about half the size of their competitors — but they've been around since 1921, and the chain is arguably the first fast-food chain in the US.
Like anything else, the prices for these competing products have varied by region since the beginning — so all prices below are approximate, and will vary based on your geographic location. And, some burger prices were not readily available.
