Foursquare Tips

  • Hamburger America filmaker George Motz has called this counter joint one of his favorite NYC newcomers. The star-butcher blend herea 4oz mix of chuck, brisket & short ribis a legitimate draw.
  • Slightly out of the way but these burgers are so so good (on par with Shake Shack and Five Guys). Pairs nicely with a trip to Dutch Kills.
  • Great milkshakes and malts. Burgers are always good. Sweet potato fries yes, cheese fries no... Not worth the price.
  • Awesome burger. Sweet potato fries are a must. Fried pickles were good and the shakes were stellar!!!!
  • Pretty good place, like an authentic burger joint :-) with old rock & roll playing, huge helping of fries, great thick, shakes & even a 10% student discount!
  • Great burgers, great gluten free menu. Doesn't feel like other gluten free menus and doesn't eat like typical gluten free bread. This place is legit
  • Counter staff was helpful and humorous and the wedge salad was awesome and very filling!
  • Try the vanilla milkshake
  • The veggie burger was probably one of the best I've had anywhere, surprisingly. The staff is very nice & fast! I will definitely be back!
  • Tough choice between a Boston Brown Ale or a Gluten-free Coffee & Chocolate flavored shake! The burger with soy-sauce jalapeos, sriracha, and pepper jack cheese will make your taste buds dance!
  • Amazing burgers! And the ice cream shakes are to die for.
  • Simple, thin diner-style burgers here, among the best in Long Island City.
  • Order ahead of time during the lunch time rush. Go for the veggie burger with sriracha & the works.
  • Very greasy. Use caution.
  • Fried onions are a must!
  • Opened by Palm Restaurant owners, this converted industrial garage is now a burger joint.
  • Not a place I would recommend. Could say more but then it would just be mean.
  • Decent but 5 Guys is a lot better & FU for running out of shakes...the sign says 'Burgers Fries Shakes'
  • Cant go wrong with banana or strawberry milkshake.
  • Local joint. Solid burger.
