Re: How Solly's makes a butterburger

Although I rank Culver's at the top of the fast food Burger Scale, their use of the term "Butter Burger" is somewhat (thankfully) misleading. They actually brush a small amount of butter on the bun and then toss it on the griddle to toast it a bit. For years, before I actually was allowed (by my overprotective wife) to try one, I thought the same as you; a glob of butter melted on the griddle, then a wad of beef smashed into it to get the proper crispy edged effect. Not the case (again, thankfully), as noted above.
As for Solly's, I, and many others, can vouch for your and JRPfeff's assessment of their burgers: greenish sicky-face emoji. Your description is spot on; "the whole bun...soaked soppy with [butter] and decomposed." That's exactly how they're served, and their legions of fans will love and defend them unto death.
Which, given a steady diet of Solly's Butter Burgers, will come sooner rather than later.
