Opened in 2005, DuMont Burger is the offshoot of older sister DuMont. Specializing in the sandwich for which it is named and neighborhood staple DuMac & Cheese, DB has won numerous accolades for its eponymous specialty.
Don't go too crazy and opt for a signature burger, medium rare (with cheddar and fries). If it's a nice day and you're sitting outside, the vodka lemonade is delicious (and strong!) as well
Buzzfeed 31 Delicious Things You Need To Eat In NYC This Winter: Mac N Cheese "3 types of cheese; perfectly crispy top;chunks of bacon... if m‘n’c is something u care about, u owe it 2u 2 eat this 1"
Hands-down the best burger in NYC. I order mine with blue cheese and caramelized onions. The mac and cheese with bacon can easily feed a family of four or one very hungry chef. -Jacqueline Lombard, To
The Mac&cheese is worth the ride to wburg bklyn! Burger was tasty and juicy awesome & light onion rings! Not too excited with the service, size/comfort of dining area...
The mini burger (5 oz.), which comes with fries or salad, should be good enough for a normal person. The regular burger (8 oz.) is just too much to handle. Girls, get the mini, unless you have some se
The (excellent) burgers and sandwiches come with A LOT of fries. Both the chickpea burger and the cod sandwich are excellent for vegetarians / pescaterians
Grass-fed beef is only the first ingredient in these incredible, giant burgers - the brioche bun is a perfect complement, as are the rest of the fresh topping choices. Mini burgers are available, too.
The burgers are delicious. I wish they had sliders though. Mac and cheese is some of the best. Parmesan and garlic fries are also to die for. Staff is nice and friendly. Their BBQ sauce is heavenly.
All five of the medium-rare burgers we ordered were medium-well to well done. Among the more mediocre burgers I've had in NYC. Big letdown. Head over to Peter Luger where they know how to do it right.
One of my fave burgers in BK, hands down. Any self-proclaimed burger fanatic MUST visit. Busy on weekends. But beware when ordering home delivery. Unless you like your food lukewarm upon arrival.
Haven't eaten a beef burger in 15 years, had the mini... It was awesome! Mac and cheese is nice & creamy, must try. Can't wait to go back & try more, the fried and onion rings looked great.
Get the fried pickles & co and the DuMont & cheese. And of course the burgers are awesome. Sitting outside can be a wait. Sitting inside is cool at the skinny wood table tops. Fun joint.
Even if you don't eat meat, it's worth breaking veg for the best burgers. Also: huge onion rings, very good fries, distinctive fried pickles, crazy Boozy Shakes, and that famous mac and cheese.
One very nice waitress, the other not that nice... Hamburguers were very good and heavy, and extremelly difficult to handle, but it's worth trying. Amazing fries, as good as my aunt's ;)
The Mac&cheese is amazing but the stools are made for hipsters that weigh under 80lbs and no ass at all. I have never seen such small stools- I thought I was going to fall off multiple times.
Don't question this- order a DuMont burger with gruyere and grilled onions. The Mac & Cheese is banging. Top it off with homemade donuts. Pamela is THE BEST waitress! Ask for her
You'd think because this place is so overhyped it's not actually good and possibly touristy. But the burger and mac and cheese are really, really delicious. Definitely recommended.
OMNIFORMER recommends a Dumont Burger cooked medium with american cheese and onion rings. The onion rings are INCREDIBLE! If you're feeling healthy, opt for the split pea soup.. Mmm...
In my opinion, DuMont has the best burger in NYC. It's not fancy or unique, but the patty is the perfect thickness, and they've always got nice fresh veggies to top it with.
Loving the dumac and cheese? Order a bun (yes, a bun) on the side to sop up all the leftover cheese. It's like a delicious fondue, and totally worth the embarrassment.
Amazing burgers (try with blue cheese and order garlic with your fries), Weihenstephan beer, and super service. Maybe the best burger place I've been to this far.
The burgers are really think and the bun is good but, in my opinion, stands out too much for my taste. If you like your patties thick, then check it out. Otherwise, skip it.
Burgers are good but i rather eat at POPS .. And the dude who waited on us .. Some rico suave wannabe with long hair ... Was a dickhead .. Had a bad attitude which almost earned him a SMACK
Great cocktails (I had the Old Brooklyn) and the Dumac and cheese burger was awesome. Good french fries too.
Good, but better than Burger Joint or even Shake Shack? Crazy talk. Less greasy and better presentation than any other I guess is where the acclaim comes from.
Best burger in the city. Order the regular size, not the mini for the mini gets to dry. Gruyere cheese and bacon for toppings is a must.
The turkey burger is the sleeper hit. It might sound boring compared to its red meat counterparts but it is really special. Best I've ever had.
So I love garlic. I put it on everything, so I friend and I each got their fries with garlic/parmesan. Great the garlic was way too much.
Order the Dumont Burger (obvious choice). They have really great soup specials daily too. Grey Poupon on the burger is a must!
I had the smaller DuMont Burger which was still very large. Add some caramelized onions. I didn’t like the pickle though; tasted like soap.
One day I was walking around Brooklyn, hungry, and I decided to stop at this place. I had never heard of it before - wow, what a good surprise!! Fantastic burger and perfect pickles!
Salted caramel boozy shake was awesome. Solid burger and I like how they offer two different sizes. Get involved!
The burgers here are soooo delicious, cooked to perfection👌 will definitely be back.
Indisputably the BEST cheeseburger around. Brioche and handcrafted pickles set off this masterpiece of beef. Nobody does it better. Nobody.
Of course the Dumont Burger, but never fear, vegetarians - the fried pickles and chickpea burger are perfect too.
They keep the grill too hot, so make sure you order it more cooked than you like it to ensure the center is cooked to order.
The DuMont Burger, obviously. Garlic fries are amazing, but you'll be breathing out garlic for the rest of the night.
Delicious burgers. They also have some surprisingly good wine sometimes. Burger joint recommended by my NYer-coworkers.
The tasty new veggie burger with bulgar and pecans is a major step up from what the chickpea burger had devolved into.
yes the burger is really good, worth it if you're in the area. but I LOVED the buffalo chicken sandwich.
Mini burgers are big enough when you consider the massive amounts of fries, rings etc they serve with them!
If you don't want your colon hating you later, try the mini dumont burger instead of the regular one. Add bacon, though. Always add bacon.
Burgers and fries are really great. DuMac and Cheese burger is so fat! Cocktails are a bit disappointing though
Wow, DuMac n Cheese was spectacular (wonderful with Tabasco)!! The mini order is more than enough for one person.
Assuming Brooklyn already knows about this place, so if you are in Manhattan, Get on the L and get over here and have a burger like I did....It's the best!
best burger and fries in Brooklyn hands down. Order it with the brioche bun, the ciabatta is too tough.
