I took my wife to a restaurant last year and got myself a $25 burger. It was really good. I probably could've asked them the name of the specific cow, and I wouldn't have been surprised if they would've known the answer. It was a "that kind of a burger" with home made ketchup, sauce and some "luxury" moldy cheese (like brie or camemberrt, I don't remember the specific one but you get the picture) instead of the regular cheddar. Was it $25 good though? Nah, Burger King (in Sweden) is the far better value here. I suppose the law of diminishing returns strikes burgers too.
Of the chain restaurants you guys have, we have McDonalds, Burger King. McDonalds is pretty damned ****ty. Even their fries are bendable and soft and mushy. I hate that. Their cheap cheeseburger is quite okay though and if you're looking for that quick fix, I suppose they'll do the job for a few bucks. If I'm hungry and have a McDonalds nearby they'll do the job and probably won't get poisoned, but it's not enjoyable. Burger King on the other hand is quite good; their bigger burgers are of far better quality, have more meat (both in percentage of the grinded meat and in metric grams of the burger meat), sauces are better and their fries (!!!) are crispy and salty and hot instead of luke warm.
Now, the best burgers I've had in Sweden comes down to two choices: Texas Longhorn Burgers and a food truck called Curbside.
The websites are in Swedish of course, but they're mostly pictures and unlike a lot of burger restaurants, their burgers are actually more or less looking like their ad pictures. So, please do look at their burgers, we've come a long way of having good burgers in Sweden and those two are ahead of the pack, and as said, their burgers really do look like the pics.
IF you're ever to visit Sweden my recommendations would be Those two, with Burger King as a third last option if you're looking for a burger. As for McDonalds et al, just skip them and just go for a real restaurant instead. Of course, if you ever visit Sweden I insist you on contacting me first so I can guide you around the town of Stockholm and show you where and what to eat. Most of our stuff are quite unlike yours (due to ingredients and such) and you're setting yourselves up for disappointment if you go in with wild expectations -- with the exception of hamburgers; I think burgers are pretty much the same wherever you go and unless your burger flipper ("chef") is an total ******, he'll succeed with the most fundamental parts of it: bread buns with grinded meat from a cow.
