    One of the best burgers I ate in NY. It's closed now so you have to go to the one in Brooklyn. Quality is the same.

    Klassik halusky 👍

    Great place. Small but you will get a great meal. Don't forget the halusky fries

    Patrick Hayes · October 6, 2014

    deep fried flatbread burgers, try the beet sauce.

    Slav, it's just amazing

    Get the original, fried please.

    One of the more unusual burgers I have ever had, but in no way is it just a gimmick. The fried bread keeps all the ingredients in and it is fantastic.

    Korzo Haus is a burger place, but there is a twist: Burgers can be wrapped and fried inside of their bun. Read more

    I have yet to taste burgers better than the ones at Korzo Haus: fried Hungarian burgers at its best. Still my favourite burger joint in NYC if not the world. Unfortunately it's cash only.

    Clement Chan · August 7, 2014
  • Kendall M.

    Undoubtedly the best burger in the entire world: just get the original medium rare

    Quality burgers. Really, it's hard to find anything wrong with deep frying a patty in the bun. The house beer is delicious too.

    Comfort food like goulash and fried burgers to go along with plenty of beer.

    The Burgers are awesome!!!

    The burgers, it's obviously about the burgers, it's only about the burgers. The original or Otto, med rare and fried, with the sweet potato fries and house ale. Can't go wrong.

    Hidden gem. The ketchup is made from beets. Beet-chup?

    Great burger deep fried in its own bun.

    JUST DO IT... Original Korzo Burger (bacon well done) + Halusky Fries + Organic Draft

    Nik Nadolski · August 15, 2013

    Well worth the trip for one of the most distinctive burgers in town.

    Bill Gilroy · August 12, 2013

    Get the Sweet Potato fries. Do it.

    Awesome burger. The spaetzle is great. Don't be discouraged by the location.

    The glorious patty is wrapped not in a bun but "a fine bread made according to an old Slovak family recipe", and then effing deep fried. It's also got applewood-smoked bacon, and Emmental cheese. Read more

    Thrillist · July 22, 2013
  • Jaro G.

    Wow what a great little spot! Get the organic ale & dumplings to start. BUT, the original Korzo Burger with well done bacon, w/ both their ketchup and Hungarian hot sauce is to die for.

    Jaro G4 · July 6, 2013
  • Brandi F.

    Obviously the burgers are the greatest in lower manhattan (fried!) but if you're in need of a spicy hearty winter treat their goulash isn't to be missed. Filling with the right burn and leftovers!!

    Brandi Frenchfry · June 3, 2013
  • Juyeon L.

    Good low-key joint - very small. Get the Original burger: Meat itself is bland, but fresh. Condiments, fried bun, and sides are what make it so tasty. Aioli mayo is amazing - I don't even like mayo.

    I already know this is a stupid thing to like when there's a fried burger on my plate, but I'll be goddamned if I didn't actually enjoy that slaw instead of tolerate it.

    Chris Dignes · March 7, 2013
  • Ellis H.

    Perhaps the best burger I've had in my life. Pastry dough wraps an ideal ratio of beef, bacon, and cheese. Comes with mayo, pickled cabbage, apple slices. Beet and homemade ketchup on side. Perfect.

    Ellis Hamburger · February 11, 2013
  • Katherine R.

    Ugh, I didn't notice the C rating, which was partially hidden by a decorative shutter door, until I left. Yuck. My Original burger was pretty bland. Service was friendly but slow...

    Katherine Reth · January 3, 2013

    Eat these burgers.

    Erika Kaz · October 20, 2012

    Try the "halusky" fries! Very good type of fries.

    Bernard Pivo: nice beer pitcher

    Alexandre Torti · May 19, 2012

    Try the original Korzo burger...fried bread filled with fresh ground beef patty, apple smoked bacon, allgauer emmentaller cheese, mustard, and dill pickle.

    Michelle C. · May 6, 2012

    Korzo burger is the bomb.

    Tim Ireland · April 26, 2012
  • foodforfel

    The veggie burgers here are surprisingly satisfying and hearty. If you're not vegetarian, add bacon to it for some extra meatiness ;)

    foodforfel · April 21, 2012
  • Patricia T.

    Try the Philly Cheesesteak

    Patricia Tirona · March 11, 2012

    You haven't lived until you've housed a plate of halusky w/ bryndza-Slovak feta & a pint of Korzo organic ale.

    The deep fried burger is not as scary in real life as it is on paper. The fryer is the right temperature so it's not a grease bomb. Basically a good burger wrapped in a savory donut.

    Order the original burger + fries and an organic beer, then sit at the bar and talk to the kitchen staff.

    love the otto, all the burgers wrapped in hungarian fried bread (like a burger inside a donut, but not at all greasy). amazing staff. cash only.
