burger-philes - should I bother with J.G. melon?

trying to make the rounds and was wondering if J.G. is the real deal...

  1. JG Melon is definitely the real deal, although Corner Bistro will always be my favorite place for great burgers.

    1. I second that JG Melon is the real deal and very, very worth hitting in your "rounds."

      1. it's solid...but not sure i'd put it on the destination list.. on the smaller side with a nice char...and the cottage fries are a nice side.

        1. I think J.G. is fine but not in the pantheon of truly great burgers. Worth trying if you are on the UES and like a previous poster said, the cottage fries don't hurt.

          1. Melon's was most impressive. See my burger ranking below. I put it up there with Burger Joint and just behind Corner Bistro
