  1. do a google search on this, as there have been many many discussions,,
    But to cut to the chase , I think most people, including myself love Bonnie's Grill..
    Secret note,, they did change their french fries recently and I dont like them quite as much,, but they are still decent.

      Okay I might get boo'ed off the CH but I really love the turkey burger at Dizzy's on 8th ave and 9th street. Really, I do. The bread they serve it on is fantastic, lots of seeds and crunch to it. And I love the fries and chipotle mayo they serve. Comes with a little salad of greens. And very cheap, 8.95 or something like that. I get one often when I exit the F there. It's not your decadent red-meat, juicy juicy burger but it's very tasty.

        I'll back you on Dizzy's turkey burger. I'm not a big fan of the "finer diner," but that burger's a winner. Large and juicy. Nice greens and crispy fries. Love the bread. And yes, that chipotle mayo. Yum.

          I know you're all gonna laugh. But.....Santa Fe on 7th and Lincoln (yeah, yeah, yeah -- the cheesy mexican place) makes a great burger. And.....serves it on an english muffin -- which i happen to like.

          Where in Park Slope is Bonnie's Grill?

            if you look at the map on the right side of this page you will see it marked. If a restaurant is highlighted that means its in our restaurant database - it will map and if you click on it on its name, you will go to the Restaurant page with more info about it.

        3. My favorite burger in the slope - and admittedly I haven't sampled all of them (much as I'd like to, in a single day even!) is the Toto burger at Bar Toto. I like how they make the bun in a sandwich press, along with onions and cheese but no lettuce or other vegetarian stuff interceding between you and your burger. I also like the fact that it's right near my house.....6th Ave and 11th Street.

          So there's an assignment for you: eat every burger that gets recommended to you here in a single day and designate a champion. If Frank Bruni of the NYTimes can have dinner at BOTH Wolfgang's AND Lugers in a single night to compare them, it hardly seems like too much to ask...

            i'm so with you on the toto burger -- instant hangover cure.

              "instant hangover cure."

              and a decent place to get started on another.
              :-)

          2. Bonnies is not always what I crave- and I also don't like them with the spices.
            Try the burgers at Blue Ribbon- great fries too.
            If only Park Slope Ale House would come back to the way they used to be- why they were listed in the Times is beyond me...

            1. White Castle, of course (but you'll travel a bot down 4th Avenue to get one)

              1. Rhythm and Booze at 10th ave & prospect ave in windsor terrace is my favorite burger in the vicinity. OK, it's not technically in Park Slope, but it's not far.

                Bonnies is pretty good, too, as is Johnny Mack's (on 12th & 8th) but i still favor R&B for a burger.
