Burger Joints near Union Square
Going to be in US doing some shopping tonight. I have my own favorite burger spots (Mollys, Royale...) but would love to try some of the Hounders recommendations.
Any top notch burger spots in walking distance from US?
Can't forget Shake Shack, it's a short short walk from the north end of Union Square to Madison Square. They are open until 9 pm.

SO we ended up going to Stand. I had the burger with the green peppercorn sauce, wife had the classic and friend had the burger with bacon, egg and cheese. The burgers were good and I didnt mind the puffy bun some folks mentioned. All the burgers came cooked perfectly. We ordered both kinds of fries which were pretty run of the mill. The stand out was the Toasted Marshmallow shake. This is reason to return alone. The burgers were good but no where on the level of Mollys IMO. Thanks for the recs, we enjoyed our meal.
