This is a STRONG "go to" burger. NYC has a ton of half assery when it comes to cheeseburgers. Everyone gets completely wet over the Corner Bistro crappy burger). Some rave about Big Nicks (crappy burger). There are those that lose it over the truffle/foi gras burger at BLT (crappy, expensive burger). To set the record straight--those people are idiots and don't know a decent burger from a hamper full of diapers.
The Burger Breakdown...
- It was a perfectly griddled, juicy, salty, beefy, cheesy puck of goodness.
- The bun just worked, and was not memorable. GOOD---you should not be aware of the damn bun. That's sort of like remembering the underwear that you peeled off of the last girl that you were with. It's just packaging---focus on what matters. Where was I?
- The crust from the griddle was just right, almost burned, but not quite, so no char--just a perfect sear
Pro Tip----Avoid the Shack Stack--it sounds awesome--a breaded, deep-fried, portabello mushroom inside a cheeseburger. I know, I know---it looks awesome. NO!. It was gritty and greasy, and it just dulled the beef flavor. There, you have been warned.
Burger Review : Good, frigging burger--right up there with Five Guys.
