  • @snailplane do we say 90's or 90s' burgers? That's what the question's body contained.

  • It is most likely too brief, containing too few characters. Feb 12 '17 at 16:39

    To overcome the character, and the low quality limit, is not such a difficult task and within everyone's capabilities. See: Please, everyone… details. Please 1. Provide as much context as possible 2. Explain why you are confused. 3. Show your research.

  • You want to know how it is written not how it is said, and therefore you're really asking about the apostrophe, if it is needed or not, and "why". Is the apostrophe denoting plurality or possessiveness? The question has nothing to do with grammar but everything to do with punctuation. It would also be interesting to know "why" you are asking about hamburgers in the 1980s. (I prefer writing decades without the apostrophe)

  • OK, an update would have been nice, telling visitors that you posted the question... I've just seen it. Spartan, but essential. If you included "why" you thought the apostrophe is necessary, you'd generate more interest.
