I heard "hamburg" and "hamburgs" growing up in greater Lawrence,
MA, but "hamburger(s)" was more common.  I think "hamburg" had
a slightly less standard feel to it than "hamburger" -- it was
something my aunts and uncles would use unselfconsciously, but
that I (being more anxious about "correctness") would have avoided.
