  1. Believe it or not, the Grand Canyon diner on 7th avenue makes a damn good burger!

      I've been avoiding the Grand Canyon for years. Tried their burgers once and that was enough. I forget exactly what was wrong, but have they improved? Can anyone corroborate this?

        I can corroborate this. My wife and I were there last night and the burgers -- both beef and turkey -- were, surprisingly, very good. They are similar in style to hose at Paul's in the East Village and Jackason Hole.

          Can anyone comment on how the Park Slope Grand Canyon's Burgers compare to those at the Brooklyn Heights Grand Canyon?

          I ate a burger during my one and only trip to the Grand Canyon on Montague St. about 3 years ago and it was horrible enough to make me swear off the place permanently.

    2. I'd recommend the burgers at Bonnie's Grill on 5th Ave (near 4th St?). I recently ate at there to sample the wings, which were very good and very spicy. But the burger was the highlight of the meal.

        Heartily seconded -- nothing else in the neighborhood even comes close.

        However, please note that if you're looking for a lunch burger (you mentioned that you can't make it to Luger, which only serves its burger at lunch), Bonnie's does not fit the bill -- they open at 5pm.

        When I need a burger fix in Park Slope I usually head to the 12th Street Bar and Grill. The burgers and fries are both delicious and serve as a good stand-in for the Old Town (where I ordinarily go in Manhattan to satisfy burger cravings).

        I've also heard good things about the burgers at Snooky's on 7th Ave but have never been.

        1. Snooky's all the way !

          1. The best burger in the slope in my opinion is at Bonnie's Grill on Fifth Avenue. Juicy, cooked to order (medium-rare actually means medium-rare) and the beer selection there is quite good also.

              bonnies is my fave. that sauce is killer. a close second is the brooklyn panini burger at bar toto. its a seasoned burger with carmelized onions and cheese panini style. a.mazing.
