Trip Advisors Top Burgers List

Quoted from


  • This list does not include Kobe beef burgers or steakhouse burgers or burgers from other boroughs.
  • It's a list of places you can generally get a burger, fries, and drink for $10 or less in Manhattan, which by NYC standards is a bargain meal.
  • The list biases mostly to areas between midtown and the East & West Village.

#1. Burger Joint (Inside Le Parker Meridien Hotel) 
Where: 118 W 56th St, New York, NY 10019

#2. Blue 9 Burger  (Eric's comment - "I really wasn't impressed")
Where: 92 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10003

Where: 331 W. Fourth St., New York, NY 10014

#4. Shake Shack (Eric's comment - "It's a traditional old school dinner style burger you'd eat with a shake. Yummy but a totally different breed then corner bistro.")

Where: Madison Park, 23rd & Madison Ave., New York, NY

#5 Paul's Place (Eric's comment - "Yuck, are you guys serious! I had this burger. No no no!)

Most Underrated

Molly's on 23rd Street - old time Irish pub, hardwood floors with sawdust on them, roaring fireplace in the winter, perfect cheddar cheesebuger and onion rings. Grab a pint with it and it's heaven on earth.

Veselka in the East Village. Maybe one of the best bacon cheeseburgers in the city.
