Restaurant Pounds & Ounces in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood has a reputation for being a trendy burger spot. So naturally, when I headed there for dinner, that’s exactly what I expected. And while the burger list did look beyond appetizing upon arrival, there is much more on the menu than just burgers. —Tyler Sullivan, Assistant Editor

  • Lobster corn dogs!!!!!!
  • Serving frozen supermarket pantry realness at overpriced bougie prices. All T and ALL SHADE hunties
  • As seen on Love & Hip Hop -- What went down: Shocking to no one, especially not Rashidah, Tahirys back from DR and officially not done with Joe. http://on.vh1.com/17Fda6B
  • Window table, cocktails, asparagus fries.
  • Try the Moscow Mule with Karlsson's Gold Vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice!
  • The Crisp Chicken Benedict for brunch is heaven sent!
  • Their dessert was everything. Save room after your duck tacos, lobster corn dogs, mac n' cheese croquettes and tuna pizette!
  • asparagus fries. paula dean was right...everything you already love does taste better tempura battered and deep fried.
  • The Cleaver Margarita is unlike anything I've had before. It has a smoky flavor. Give it a try.
  • the Chelsea spot has a 16-ounce burger with blue cheese, pancetta and crispy shallots; a 12-ounce NY strip with french fry mash and chimichurri; and five sauces available by the ounce.
  • Worst service. We were never waited on even after our waiter walked by several times and made eye contact. We went to Elmos where we were seated quickly and served really quickly.
  • red velvet pancakes
  • The Lobster BLT is amazing! Sub the asparagus fries for $2 extra.
  • The 160 Manhattan is a great variation on the classic drink. The calamari appetizer is flavorful but a small portion. The P&O Burger is good but the bun could use some work.
  • Excellent service. Host and staff are friendly and professional. The P&O burger is sinfully good
  • The Chelsea Breeze is a refreshing and unique cocktail. The tuna bites and asparagus fries are delicious.
  • The chicken confit is delish!
  • Must order the epic Angus Beef Cheeseburger that comes topped with aged cheddar, heirloom tomato, and a wasabi-crusted onion ring, along with truffle fries.
  • Siders were good, but not groundbreaking.
  • Buger was awesome! Wait staff was also very friendly. Great ambience for a small party.
