Hey everyone! I tried to order a cheeseburger cooked medium and was told the law only allows well done burgers to be served in restaurants. Is this true in Alaska? It's been awhile since I ordered one in this state so I didn't question the server. Thanks!

Not that I know of. Think they'll still cook it any way you like, as it should be.
Traveling across the states, I remember one that didn't allow any burger cooked less than well. I didn't eat it, had something else.

This is the first time I ever heard of such a law. They specified it was a law and not their policy. A dry well done burger tastes horrible LOL

I agree, not much can taste worst then a dried out burger.

I say..."Take a cow through a warm room and slice a piece off."

Some of the restaurants refuse to "undercook" burgers, but most of the diners I know ask how you would like it prepared. This excludes the fast burger joints like Burger King and McDonalds.

So there isn't an actual law that prohibits it?

Most states, chains, do unless you order different, then you make your choice....I don't think fast food will do anything less than done...but at least two years ago, Applebees, Chili's or non-chains would do that way if ordered..I refuse to eat a well-done burger, gross...like Neph said slice off the cow for my steak, but burger done medium if good meat is acceptable...
