How are Jackson Hole Burgers?

Heard theyre pretty awesome. I am going to the Auto Show next month and Jackson Hole has a location at 35th street near the Jacon Javitz center. Also what is their best burger to get?

  1. There nothing special. very large but don't really care for the quality of the beef. Kind of fatty in my opinion. City is full of much better burger places

    1. I'll add that although it has a 35st location it is on 3rd Ave which is nowhere near the Javitz Center..

        The burgers are large, and a bit fatty, but in that good, satisfying, gut warm-feeling way. They load on the toppings, too. I'm partial to the mushrooms. Fries are a bit sodden, but we've all had worse.

        And with all due respect to the King of Northern Blvd, 35th Street and 3rd is not all that far from JJCC. You can take the 34th St crosstown bus or a quick cab ride. You can even walk if you want to build an appetite. If you walk briskly, it is about 25 mins. Good luck and enjoy!

          Yeah, But I guess I was implying that you can just pop uptown, downtown or acrosstown just as easily for a better burger.

            I too am not a fan of Jackson Hole burgers but I also have to note that the crosstown 34St bus has to be the slowest ride in Manhattan. It could take all day to get to the East Side.

              Yeah, I live WAY uptown and I used to work in the Empire State Building. It would take me 15-20 minutes to travel 150 blocks south (approx 7 miles) on the subway, and then it would take me more than 30 minutes on the bus across 34th Street (less than a mile). And fighting your way through the crowds isn't so pleasant on the days when I would walk it.

        2. I'm not a fan at all. They're unweildily large and outsize the buns they're served on (which become grease-logged little bits of dough). I don't mind a little grease, but they're not particularly flavorful, either. Toppings aren't that interesting and fries are sodden and disgusting. If you want a great, well priced burger, try Corner Bistro or the Burger Joint in the Parker Meridien.

          1. Yes, but what a scenic day it would be! Go from the ridiculous, Macy's and all of the other Herald Square shopping emporiums, to the sublime, the Empire State Building and the old B. Altman's department store. Not a bad trip for out-of-towners and natives alike.

            1. No fan - They stink. If i want a lump of something steaming for a meal I'd haver better luck looking along the curb.
