    It wasn't bad. You can find better in the city, but if you need juicy burger in the neighborhood to fill you up, this is it. Well maybe, this is the first time I ate food in Murray Hill.

    Had the Hole Mole Turkey Burger. Best turkey burger I've had so far in New York.

    Very cute burger joint with good burgers and a creamy vanilla milkshake. However, it didn't sweep me off my feet. Clean, solid, but no wow-effect.

    Perfectly cooked average tasting char broiled 1/4lb burger on a soft bun but the sweet potato fries are the star.

    The plain burger is nothing special but the steakhouse is quite delicious and filling. It always takes longer than I expect to get food, especially fried

    Cajun fries as probably the best fries in the neighborhood. I'd recommend the steakhouse burger.

    If you're a burger connoisseur get the steakhouse burger. Its armed with garlic creamed spinach, horseradish sauce and crispy onions! Its so good!

    The western burger is the way to go. Onion rings, pickles and BBQ sauce along with a perfectly flavored beef patty make one great burger.

    This hidden gem is arguably the best burger joint in the city. The burgers are perfectly sized & have great flavor. The cajun fries are quite delicious, too. A bonus: BSB has a decent beer selection.

    The Black Shack Burger is just enough. Great balance, but the grilled bun with the burnt edges make you feel like anything in life is possible. #littlethings
