Mikey's Burger on Ludlow

  • 9

After a show at the Living Room, I was walking down Ludlow, when I passed by this place, a little pocket of a place on the east side of the street. On an impulse, I stopped in.

The menu is as small as the place:

(I didn't find an official site).

I bought "The Mikey" burger and ate it as I walked to the subway.

And a pretty splendid burger it was, plenty juicy and tasty; I made full use of the napkins I had.

  1. Thanks! Can you compare it to other burgers around town (burger joint, Shake Shack, etc)?

    Mikey's Burger is owned by the same guy who does all the Baoguettes, Bia Garden, O BAO, etc.

        Sorry, I'm a Long Islander who hasn't made it into the city much in the last few years. It was good enough that I wish I could have sat down and better enjoyed it.

      2. Is this is the space that was Rush Hour Burgers, or a competitor?

          it was the place that rush hour was at

          been meaning to try it since its super close to where i live, but its another michael hyunh restaurant, so my expectations are low and ive been lagging

        2. I am by no means a burger connoisseur, but I tried Mikey's tonight and really enjoyed it.

          I ordered the BLT burger with cheese, which is a hamburger with chinese bacon, kewpie mayo, lettuce and tomato. The burger itself was juicy and flavorful on its own. But the bacon and kewpie made it a little different than just your average burger. The flavors all worked together very nicely - and the lettuce and tomato were crisp and bright and fresh.

          The fires are thin cut with the skin on, and in my opinion, salted to perfection. They were a little soggy, but I did take out - so I'm thinking they make have gotten a little soggy on during the walk home.

          1. ordered a "cheeseburger, no mayo"

            received this:

             
            1. Also not a burger connoisseur but I thought the burger was tasty. Fries were good too (ate in the restaurant).

              1. Finally made it back there last month (yes, it's been that long) and had a duck burger, with a sort of plum sauce on it (or so my flaky memory recalls). Not sweet, which (to me) is a GOOD thing; very good, overall. Wish I could get here more often.
