Anyone been to the new Burger Shoppe in the Financial District? Thinking about meeting some friends there for dinner and was wondering what it's like. Are the burgers big? 4 oz. minis? How are the bar snacks?
Neither of us will have eaten much all day, so appetites will be pretty healthy.
Just ate their today for lunch. The onion rings were pretty good (very crispy!) and I loved the Guiness milk shake (yes, they use real Guiness beer). The burger however, was terrible. While it was well flavored, it was like eating a well flavored hockey puck. They serve up juicier burgers at McDonald's. The burgers are pretty small (4 oz.) and just aren't that good. $4 for an overcooked hockey puck... I don't think so. First time, last time. :-(
Terrible place. Very unremarkable burger and fries and faux vintage decor. I went after work when it was empty, the manager left while I was there and the staff proceeded to turn the place into a parody of a bad dance club. The loudest music I've ever heard and they all sat on the counters, some of them dancing, and stared at me waiting for me to leave while I ate...so uncomfortable.
