    Do the burger, the burger, then the burger. Diversify after. Chili is great, so are the fries. Shuffleboard and board games are available but the place gets crazy at night so at your own peril...

    Cool spot. Pool table, dart board, shuffleboard, and some board games in addition to six TVs, plus some outdoor space. Get there early for football to guarantee a good seat.

    The fan-favorite cheeseburger at this South Slope saloon comes with a mountainous side of hand-cut fries and a Scotch kicker. It’s more than a few notches above your average fast-food order. (RC) Read more

    Double Cheeseburger, $12 The house style is a relentlessly drippy double fashioned from two well-browned three-ounce patties fully accessorized with lettuce, tomato, American cheese, pickle, onion.

    Extremely loud but still the best bar burger in town. Take it the way it comes: two square patties, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onion, mustard, mayo, and no ketchup.

    Need a table - standing room is narrow and in the way of everyone else. Food is decent bar food and they play a wide variety of sports which can make it a nice alternative to the usual sports bar.

    If you get a burger, sub the fries with a side salad for $1. It's a no bullshit salad and you'll negate the 7 beers you plan on downing.

    Forget the fact that they have a huge beer selection. Forget the fact that their burger is one of NYC's best (the food in general rocks). The staff kicks ass. 'Nuff said.

    Don't skip the burger here--it's truly amazing. Note though: the default is double patties, so ask for a single if you want to keep your girlish figure.
