Excellent Burgers, Long Wait!

  • May 14, 2013
I have visted two of this franchises locations (86th Street in Manhattan and Old Country Road in Westbury Long Island). There is an incredibly long line but it moves very fast. The burgers are incredibly tasty with a really nice tasting thick and soft bun. The lettuce and tomatoes are very fresh (unlike McDonalds and the like). The fries are probably the best that I have ever gotten from a fast food restaurant, they are crinkle cuts and very tasty (like a much superior version of Nathan's fries).

Once I have placed my order, it has taken me 10-15 minutes for it to be ready. Both times I have gotten meals for four people and they do a good job of getting everything on a single tray. The sodas come in a smaller but wider cup than most places I have been to.

There are many types of shake options (I have only tried soda) that they will put whatever you want in them from Oreos to Reeses Pieces. I have been told that the hot dogs are very good and one of my companions had a Shroom Burger which is a giant mushroom used in place of a hamburger patty.

Finding a place to sit can be a challenge but there is plenty of outdoor seating if the weather holds up. Pricing is higher than most fast food restaurants, usually running me about $12 per person for our meal.

Definately worth a visit if you happen to be near one!

Everybody here in New York raves about this place and the lines at their locations are usually out the door. I visited their Citifield location but the line was so long that I feared that I might miss up to 2 innings of the baseball game. I look forward to trying what I anticipate being an amazing burger!
