"If you can use donuts for buns and call it a Luther burger, if you can use Domino's pizza for buns and call it a pizza burger, if you can use grilled cheese sandwiches for buns and call it a burger, then a patty melt is a burger.
"That being said, it's a burger with a title. You would never call it 'burger on rye.' That would be disrespectful. That would be like calling the President "politician in a white house." It's Mr. President, and it's a Patty Melt." —CptBuck, on "Poll: The Patty Melt — Is It a Burger?"
