Best burgers in The Heights



Expect a moderate but well-worth it wait for this one room burger joint and bar in upper Manhattan, where the laid-back atmosphere and savory grub will have you licking your fingers in no time. The house Locksmith Burger, in all of its 8oz. glory, will leave red meat lovers salivating for more, while the Turkey Burger's secret flavors may make you believe you just chomped into a slice of sirloin. Non-burger lovers and vegetarians will love the spicy Cajun Chicken Sandwich(add jalapenos!) as well as the house Veggie Burger that's served with avocado on top. Salads and wings are available as well with an array of toppings and dressings. The full bar and decent wine list will have you buzzing in no time off a glass of Malbec, a pint of lager or a mojito mixed for you by the lovely bartender Whitney. Soft lighting and classic hip-hop join forces with a lively, laid-back crowd to make this a perfect date spot or place-to-watch-the-game-with-friends in this diverse and mellow neighborhood. Weekend brunch is from noon-4pm and includes the usual egg and brioche fare as well as unlimited Bloody Marys, Mimosas and Screwdrivers.
