    No. A hamburger/beefburger is minced beef compressed into a thin, round patty—fried, barbecued, grilled or griddled and usually served in a bread bun, but not necessarily.

    Probably. However, that's not something I'd be likely to say. That's because I usually (99.9% of the time) eat my hamburgers on buns. Thus, I would say:

    I had a hamburger last night.

    Or:

    I had two hamburgers last night.

    (If I have more than two it's probably those small ones we call sliders.)
