A McDonald's customer in Sydney has been questioned by police after failing to return the wrong takeaway order. The customer decided to eat the incorrect order - which exceeded his purchase by approximately $17 - to save himself a trip back to the store. This resulted in police arriving at his house to accuse him of stealing. (Yes, really.) So is it legal to keep takeaway food you receive by accident?

I love a nice, juicy restaurant burger, but man, are they messy. The minute you pick one up to take a bite, half a litre of burger juice pours onto your plate, making it a terrible place to set your burger down unless you've got a thing for soggy buns. Here's my personal workaround.

The burger is a versatile dish, but doing too much with it can make it messy and difficult to eat. And the more flavours you add, the less opportunity the beef has a chance to shine. These tips will help you keep it simple and make the best burger possible.

This morning, multiple news outlets in Australia reported that McDonald's is removing cheeseburgers from the Happy Meal menu in a bid to encourage kids to make healthier choices. Don't believe it. McDonald's has confirmed that the Happy Meals cheeseburger is here to stay. Hurrah!

Dear Lifehacker, I work from home and buy myself a takeaway lunch once or twice a week. Unfortunately, the only options near my house are a burger shop or a bakery that sells hot pies. Neither store has any nutritional information on their menu, so I'm not sure which is worse. Am I better off grabbing the burger or the meat pie?

"Is Macca's open on Christmas and/or Boxing Day?" This is a question more Aussies ask themselves than you might think. The good news is that there will be plenty of McDonald's stores offering piping hot Big Macs on December 25 and 26 - you can find the nearest available outlet to your location here.

The greasy sizzle of delicious meat on a grill is a staple of Aussie summer. But as everyone breaks out the barbecue grill, paper plates, and "Kiss the Cook" aprons, a debate older than charcoal briquettes rages in the minds of grillmasters everywhere, along with their hungry audience: Do you want a burger? Or a hot dog? ("Both" is certainly an option, but not for the purposes of this showdown.)

Vegetarian? I'm so sorry.

You can complain about it all you want, but it's a fact: some fast food is delicious.

But recreating some of the most iconic American fast foods is easier than you'd think and it gets a whole lot better with fresher, tastier ingredients. Here's our seven ten favorite American fast food recipes that you can make at home.

The Cheese And Burger Society is a Wisconsin-based gourmet collective dedicated to US-style cheese burgers. Over the years, the society has hand-crafted 40 burgers that it considers the tastiest ever created: from the "Casanova" (Swiss cheese, beef patty, ham, sautéed mushrooms, Dijon mustard and mayonnaise on a potato roll) to the "Waldorf" (blue cheese, beef patty, toasted walnuts, dried tart cherries, curly endive, sliced red onions and mustard on a rustic Italian roll.)

Be warned -- if you currently have an empty stomach, the accompanying photos might make you homicidally "hangry".

For the past few years, McDonald's Australia has been inviting customers to grill the company about its products on the Our Food Your Questions website. No question is off-limits, including whether Quarter Pounders have shrunk in size (they have) and whether McMuffins use free-range eggs (they don't). While this was obviously a PR stunt designed to engage customers and their wallets, the amount of transparency still surprised us. Here are 15 of the most revealing -- and weirdest -- responses from the campaign so far.

Dear Lifehacker, McDonald's and Hungry Jack's both claim that their premium burgers are made from Angus beef. From my understanding, this is just a breed of cow rather than a special cut of meat. Do different types of cow really have unique tastes or is this just a marketing gimmick used to bump up the price of burgers?

The beer-and-burger combo is beloved by pretty much everyone - which makes it blessedly easy to get your paws on while travelling abroad. This infographic lists 20 of the world's tastiest beer and burger pairings; from the Brazil's Grill Burger with Skol to South Africa's Springbok Burger with Carling Black Label. But be warned: the Australian nomination is awful.

National Burger Day is coming up on May 28, which naturally means that places that specialise in burgers are already gearing up for their very own day of days. In some cases, even places that don't usually make burgers are getting in on the action -- as with Zushi's sushi-and-Japanese-chicken-inspired burger.
