it's very good and every time i go the place is criminally empty. (the meat is from a steakhouse that ages its own beef)

Shake shack is good, custard shakes are bomb you have to get the shack stack with the deep fried cheese stuffed portobelo or theres not much of a point in my eyes, and still, It's not worth an hour standing in line good, more of a novelty but everyone should still check it of his list

I am behind this initiative 110%. I've (very slowly) been trying to eat my way through this burger list:

the Landmarc burger was pretty good, but I'm not big burgers larger than 8 oz.

Stand is hit or miss, sometimes too salty

Prune's burger is good but a bit too greasy from the buttered bun and cheddar.

Smith burger is good, just too big, and the bun is brioche so it gets too soggy.

Fanellis was okay

Blue Smoke's is the exact same blend as Shake Shacks, and you can have them make the burger into two 4 oz burgers on request cus they're not preformed patties.

Back Forty is pretty good.

Wanna try Zaitzeff and Veselka

Agree, Smith has a good burger but if I'm there I'm probably gonna get the pot pie and some chips w/blue cheese instead. Veselka's cheeseburger is so damn pretty, like the romanticized version of an all-night restaurant burger. So good.

Aw man, don't hate me for talking shit on Paul's. Truth is, I like it fine and tbh it sounds like we like the same kinda grimey shit. No hoity toity here, sorry if it came off that way. Trust me, my money's more like Paul's money than Minetta money. Burger truce?

zaitzeff is good, however they charge for toppings like cheese. that always annoys the hell out of me. when you buy a burger it should come with all the fixings plus a large side of fries. i like the jane burger for this reason; really good value.

^yo I got some cleaning to do and bs like that but hit me up a bit after you're out if you're hungry. I just ate 3 Crif dogs last night but I'm still on winter break til Monday so that's my justification and I'm stickin to it

fineeee, burger truce. It wasn't so much the Pauls hate as it was the steak n shake love. Back in Florida it was one of the only 24 hr eat spots but it never did anything for me and the frisco melts I'd always be pressured into sucked so instead I'd just opt for 3am breakfast food at Denny's lol.

Alright so the brindle room burger is legit. You heard it here. Got it with blue cheese and sauteed onions. 12 bucks for that and pretty ill fries. Too much for me to finish (all the fries I mean).

Blue 9 doesn't taste like garbage by any means still. My Roomie just ordered that and the other got lucky burger (anyone?) earlier today. Burger Thursday's!

And I've had a few friends say that about me having a blog but I feel like now that every blowhard and his grammas got a blog nowadays who really cares what the fuck a shmuck like me (and all them) has to say? Essentially... I prolly wouldn't even find the time to read my blog. (but I don't find the time for anyone elses for that matter so maybe I'm reverse biased?)

i would read it dawg. im so uninformed when it comes to nyc street food joints. i mean any jackass can look at some restaurant guide and hit up a fancy, up-scale joint with X number of stars, rave reviews, etc. but i think street food knowledge, if you can call it that, is something much more intimate and experiential i guess? and besides, i love food porn.

brindle room burger is so legit, especially for only $12. the dry aged beef is what's up. i think it's got potential as a regular spot.

try mikeys on ludlow. its pretty decent. i like their fries and they have a peculiar mayo sauce as well.

/\ +90000

i've hit up almost every cheap chinatown joint.

it's time to upgrade.

lol i eat at vanessas just about everyday. never get tired of it, always delicious!

I like where this thread is headed lately.

What, I can't have two burgers in 4 days?!?

I had two burgers in one day yesterday :/

After spoona mentioned trying veselka it peaked my interest just enough to give the place another shot seeing as the bar next door has practically been my second home the past year. So i got the burger and It wasn't BAD I guess but didn't seem to wow me any/have enough flavor for my weathered taste buds. Toppings weren't anything special, plus it was grilled and iunno, guess i have a slight aversion to grilled burger taste from growing up in Florida and eating more bland, dry backyard grilled burgers than I care to count over the years. Come to think of it I don't really prefer any of my meats to be grilled. Steak especially, I won't touch it.

You can buy like 100 frozen dumplings there for 30 bucks or something save yourself the trip already!

Wild, Lando, 169 bar TONIGHT, pork dumplings there to hold you over
