      Seriously, Shake Shack best burgers? I would try Five Napkin Burger. For Mexican I agree on Toloache.

      A bit more Hell's Kitchen (and a bit more downscale), Tulcingo del Valle for Mexican.

          burger joint in the mandarin is an experience. the is a place called margaritas in the theater district, i've never ordered an entree there but the drinks and starters are decent.

          Isnt there a Bills Bar and Burger in Roc center now? That is prob good, or Shake Shack, Burger Joint etc. Roc Center is pretty close to Times Sq though.

            Try Anejo in Hells Kitchen for Mexican!

            For burgers, I agree with the Five Napkin Burger rec. Or if you are willing to walk a little bit, try Rare.
