If you are looking for a mouthwatering burger anywhere in the five boroughs of New York City we have got you covered, we have compiled a list of some of the best burgers joints.
1. Bar Sardine – West Village
If you are more of a burger purist, Bar Sardine’s is the place to you. They are famous for the Fedora Burger. This delicious delicacy is equipped with crispy shoestring potatoes, pickled cucumbers, smoked cheddar, and BBQ mayo.
2. Houseman – SoHo
The Houseman’s burger is the weird stepchild if you took a Shake Shack burger and a fancy steakhouse burger. There are two very thin charred patties and a potato bun, plus caramelized onions and cheese, and the result is a thing of very simple beauty. You have plenty of other options at this nice downtown neighborhood restaurant, but not getting the burger would be a crime.
3. The Spotted Pig – Greenwich
The famous chargrilled burger at the Michelin-starred Spotted Pig is a bare-bones kind of burger; you won’t be getting any lettuce, tomato, or onion and trust us it doesn’t need them. Your burger will be delivered in a fresh-baked bun branded with crisscrossed grill marks.
4. BK Jani – Bushwick
You might not think that you need help ordering food but let me tell you something – no questions asked you need to try the signature burger at this little Pakistani burger joint. It might not look all that special, but instead of mayo or mustard, this burger has spicy mint chutney. We could eat several delicious burgers in a single sitting.
5. J.G. Melon
This particular slice of heaven opened its doors in 1972 and is known to have the quintessential pub-style burger in New York. Did you know that this restaurant cooks through at least 300 pounds a day!
6. Brindle Room
The Brindle Room’s menu has all kinds of comfort foods that you need on a chilly day. This burger joint is known for the famous Steakhouse Burger. So, what makes the burger here so special? It is its sheer simplicity, the slightly charred burger and topped solely with American cheese and caramelized onions. There’s no need for extra sauces — in fact, ketchup would probably do more damage than good.
7. Burger Heaven
The lovely Burger Heaven opened its doors in the 1940s under the original name Beefburger, and then the restaurant changed its name in 1974. Burger Heaven is still family-operated to this day, serving the classic diner-style burger specimen that originated in NYC
