Wolfgang's Burger?

  • 7

Hi Everyone,
I have to fast for a blood test tomorrow and I will be heading out immediately after my appointment to find a great burger. How is Wolfgang's burger? Are there other burgers nearby that are good? Thanks for your help.

  1. Mollys on 22 and 3rd is the best in the hood. Waterfront Ale house on 29 and 2nd is good as well.

    1. The burger at Houston's is also excellent, although it's a little pricey if I recall correctly.

      An even better (albeit crazier option): re-schedule your blood test for March 21st, when the Shake Shack re-opens ...

      1. The burger at Wolfgang's is fantastic. Up there with the best. Try it out and give a report back after you recover from the subsequent food coma.

        1. Count me among those who think highly of Wolfgang's burger, but it's not fair to compare it to Shake Shack or of the "semi fast food" burger places that have sprung up all over town recently. It's very big and very expensive (compared to Shake Shack, BRGR, BLT etc). Remember, it's only served at lunch and only at the bar.

          1. I know this thread is from two years ago but I am curious about their burger as well.

            Is it just like the burger at Peter Luger? And is it only served at lunch? Only at the bar or can you order it in the main dining room also?

              Only served at lunch. I have only had it at the bar, but it may be possible to order it at a table. It's a very, very good burger. Yes, very similar to the burger at Luger.

                Unless they've recently changed, it's only available at the bar and, IIRC, it comes with steakhouse fries, unlike Luger's where everything is a la carte. As others have said it's a very good burger.
