Such an amusingly debated topic.... Burger Joint is quite good. Shake Shack isn't half bad. Not worth the line though at all. I've never tried the Luger's burger but judging by everything else they cook, I'm sure the_state's rec is worth seriously checking out. I used to like the PJ Clarke's burger but was disappointed last time I was there. BLT Burger didn't do much for me either.

Honestly though, when I want a burger, I'm usually more in the mood for something good and greasy like Paul's on 2nd Ave just off St Marks than any of these fancy spots. I mean, it's not the refined hamburger everybody's on a quest for lately, but it's exactly what a burger is really supposed to be as far as I'm concerned.

JG Melon's is straight up greasy-spoon steez, but i feel where you're coming from. Foie Gras? Truffle butter? Avocado? Fuck that, give me ketchup, pickles and onions.. maybe some lettuce/tomato. Toppings are meant for burgers that can't stand on their own legs.

BLT Burger is whack, I'd rather eat a regular diner burger and save myself the money. PJ's has fallen off a little, but it's still very tasty. Burger Joint is good too, but I always hold it in the same league as Shake Shack, but the shack edges it out. Purple Cows are unfuckwitable. Luger's is def the holy grail, you could eat that shit plain w/ no bun and it'd prob taste better that way. If you've never been, I highly recommend it.

Good to know. Last time I was there must have been in elementary school still. The place is in my memory but not the food. It's clearly time for a revisit.

PAUL'S BABY! Authentic burger joint...quick, easy, good, greasy, and cheaper than your average (even most burgers at Jackson Hole are more than Paul's...way less flavor and soul)

the shake shack burger is insanely overrated - it's like a nostalgia kick version of a mcdlt. go for the shake-ago dog instead. i don't like all these fancy burgers that have come out since the db bistro opened.

corner bistro has got great ground beef but i hate waiting in line with a bunch of yuppie west side meatheads.

most french bistros worth their salt can do an excellent burger, the secret's in the bun. which is why jackson hole burgers are disgusting.

if you come out to jersey city, there's a restaurant called marco and pepe's that sometimes has an awesome steak frites sandwich - the perfect alternative.

White Mana is good but honestly Hamburgao holds the crown for best jersey burger. It's on Lafayette Street in Newark in the Ironbound district. Brazillian owned spot with the biggest, most delicious burger I've ever eaten

I like Landmarc's burger alot

It always has a nice smokey taste to it, almost like smoked bacon was added to it. It comes with a side of great fries,housemade pickles, and pickled onions.

The DB Bistro "burger" is fucking fantastic, but it's barely a burger.

Went to Ippudo last night (soft lauch switched from lunch to dinner last night). I see that they spent good amount of dough on the interior (benefits of that is a different topic).

They had lots of workers probably for training purpose.

Had the Shiro-maru. I thought it was good - but not necessarily a knockout. good soup - bit on the sweet side, good hakata style thin noodles (I am fan of thicker type in general), Cha-shu was very thin and only two slices - disappointing, decent veggie selection but not enough in terms of quantity. Overall pretty good.

13 plus tax and tip came out to 17 - which is kinda dough.

I will go back and try the aka-maru soon. thought other stuff on the menu like salad was totally uncalled for though.

hamburgao is nuts but a different beast. but props to them for putting carrots on a burger and making it work. is parking a problem at the ironbound location? i always just punt and go to kearny. i think they opened a third (also in newark) as well.

btw from my jersey city tribe i always got the impression the white mana is more about the setting from the food. i would never think to compare a steak frites sandwich to a diner burger (much less downtown jersey city to tonnele in terms of proximity to nyc). fwiw they had high marks for white star in roselle but haven't made it out there yet.

i always hated dumont but hit up their burger joint after a bit of a bender a few days back so no complaints here.
