    Damn, the Juicy Lucy is a good burger and a must-try for first-timers. Other must-tries are the kale chips (I have no idea what they do, but they are delicious!) and fried pickles (also top-notch).

    Excellent burgers! The bacon egg & cheese burger is probably one of the best breakfast burgers I've ever had. Just remember to brig money - it's cash only.

    This little hole in the wall burger has great, juicy meat blends and toppings that'll satisfy any burger whim (except no Dijon mustard!! - for shame). Def get a side of crispy kale crack with ur burgy

    Do this: Fried local pickles followed by the amaaazing Juicy Lucy followed by the chocolate chip cookies served with milk. They bake the cookies fresh when you order. Warm and gooey. Wow. I'm in love.

    This place was amazing to stumble upon, after a long walk in east village, the burgers were really mouthwatering. Topping options make this place great. Enjoyed the sweet potato fries, atmosphere.

    The sandwiches are amazing! Beautiful craft food in a cozy, agrarian city environment. The Juicy Lucy is a bit messy but marvelously tasty. Great service too.

    Whitmans has a super legit Juicy Lucy made with a short-rib blend, caramelized onion, spicy pickles, and an ooze-happy stuffing of pimento cheese. Read more

    So the winning formula is: Juicy Lucy + Sweet Fries + Kale Salad all with a Brooklyn Pilsner ! Great burger joint with cool character downstairs.

    A legendary burger joint in East Village. Peanut butter and bacon (PB&B) is a kind of local special here. Try anything, you won’t regret.

    Great little spot for a quality burger w/o all the unnecessary hype. Spicy burger was fantastic. Just enough to heat combined w cool avocado. Fried pickles are perfectly crisp. Crack kale subpar.

    For a phenomenal NYC burger, checkout Whitmans in the East Village. Try the Juicy Lucy for a mouth watering burger experience, filled with pimento cheese.

    Bacon Egg and Cheese is unforgettable, one of the best simple burgers of the world for sure. Basic, straightforward, tasty.

    Get the fried pickles. Then punch the guy next to you in the face. Then order 2 Juicy Lucys - give one to the dude who's face you punched in. It's delicious!

    All burgers are cooked to a solid medium-rare. For first timers: Order the Juicy Lucy, but beware the pocket of melted pimento cheese in the center of the patty.

    Unbelievable food (spicy patty, fries, ice cream sandwich!), unbelievable service and the occasional Mikkeller. What a gem. Can’t wait to go back.

    Another vote for the Juicy Lucy. It is absolutely juicy & absolutely delicious! The crispy kale is a fun alternative to fries.

    The Juicy Lucy is near the top of the best NYC hamburger list. Get it medium rare. The cracked kale is a delicious alternative to fries and serves 2

    Cheesesteak - (also try Jucy Lucy burger) - this take on the classic has Pat LaFrieda chipped beef covered in melty cheese and caramelized onions, all on a proper,on a hoagie.

    Here, gooey pimento cheese gives a Southern twang to the Minneapolis-style Juicy Lucy—a burger variant cooked with cheese inside the patty rather than on top. It's a burger worth fantasizing about. Read more

    Some of the best burgers in NYC. The flavor of the meat is outstanding. Only negative is the burgers are a bit on the small side.

    The pb&b is so good. Who knew peanut butter and bacon on a burger could taste like heaven?! The juicy lucy is also a classic.

    By far the best burger in NY! Try the Upstate Burger or Juicy Lucy or why not both 😉

    My first Juicy Lucy. Been chasing the feeling of that first one but can't find it anywhere else. I always come back for my fix. Make sure you have napkins.

    Great burgers: get the Juicy Lucy, made with hearty LaFrieda short rib with a molten interior of pimento cheese.

    The Juicy Lucy literally explodes in your mouth. A patty with a filling get of cheese that oozes it after the first bite!

    Vegetarians: Get the pickle chips to start and the succotash made rite for your main. Save the dipping sauce from the pickle chips and put it on your sandwich. Mmmmmm.

    Best fried pickles I've ever had. Kale crisps are perfectly and deliciously oily and the juicy Lucy is the bomb. One of the best burgers and overall meals I've had in a long time.

    Spicy burger is awesome, as are the Brussel sprouts if they are available. Sit back, enjoy the wait. Your delicious food is coming.

    Truly exceptional burgers and they have a front lawn and love bacon as much as I do. This is an excellent establishment

    Craft burger spit- but I opt for the Philly Cheesesteak, crack kale and blue cheese fries.

    I love the patty melt here. But I would happily eat any burger. There's lots of extra space downstairs too!

    If you're not in the mood for red meat, Whitman's does a solid turkey burger. And obviously don't forget an order of crack kale.

    The kale chips here are awesome. Then again, kale chips never disappoint. The fried pickles--best I've had. They are sliced and fried to create the perfect blend of juicy and crunchy.

    Try the Juicy Lucy before anything else! The Bacon & Egg Burger is also tasty! Chicken soup (with a slightly spicy broth from Jalapenos) and warm salty chocolate chip cookies are ridiculous as well.

    All the burgers are good - more importantly, do NOT skip on the crack kale and fried pickles.

    Peanut butter bacon burger is sweet savory perfection. Also grab the buttery corn & make sure you sit downstairs.

    The Jucy Lucy absolutely surpasses the hype. Incredible crust, great flavor, pink center, cheese. And I love any restaurant with house wine.
