Burger Burger in FIDI
Tried burger burger for the first time today down in the financial district. I have worked here for over a yr and half and find that FIDI is a culinary wasteland. There is really nothing special down here for lunch besides your normal delis and such. Nothing destination worthy so I usually just brown bag it. However, yesterday I ventured out and tried burger burger down on stone street. I gotta say this was one great burger! I got a special which was an Asian Kobe beef burger. I added a fried egg, bacon and cheddar cheese to it. It came with some sweet potato fries and a drink of your choice with it also. All of the burgers come with lettuce, tomato, pickle and they cook them to order. I ordered mine as rare as they can make it and they did just that, which a lot of places won't or can't do these days. So for any down in the financial district looking to indugle in a great burger for lunch hit up Burger Burger.
Two caveats- Very long wait if you do not call in. I waited about 20-30 min because of the line and the cooking time. Also the price can start to get very high since they charge you for extra ingredients. My burger came to $18. It was originally 13.99 (because of the kobe), and they with the 3 added toppings and the substitution of sweet potato fries that jacked up my bill also. Still, I was willing to pay for it. 8 oz of bloody goodness and the sweet potato fries were delicious.
It's on Coenties & Stone, and you'd have trouble finding it from Pearl if you didn't know better.
Their burgers are pretty good, but I hate that they make you get fries with it. If they had a burger-only option, I would go way more often. Even if it only reduced the cost by 25 cents--it's a matter of principle for me.
