The Ultimate Guide to Burgers (and Fries) in New York


Burgers can be polarizing. Some people prefer them medium rare, some (who are admittedly wrong) prefer them well done. It seems we all have our opinions and preferences when it comes to smashed or thick patties, shoestring fries or steak-cut, sesame seed buns or brioche. No matter your opinion about this quintessential American delicacy, what we can guarantee is that none of the ones on this list will disappoint. From banh mi burgers and thick tavern-style creations to double patty smashburgers and vegetarian delicacies, we’ve got you covered. Extra napkins all around, please.
