Amsterdam Burger Co.

The new burger place run by Mike's is open. I got their classic burger tonight and it was great. Homemade thousand island dressing and a perfectly cooked juicy burger. It also had a fresh bun that was much nicer than your basic hamburger bun. Another diner called the burger the best kosher burger he's ever had. I also heard great things about the wings and eggplant rings(rather than onion rings) from other diners. Burger prices ranged from $12 to $16. I believe fries and other sides ranged from 4 to 8, but I can't remember exactly.

  1. Where is this place, and who is Mike? Mike's Bistro?

      It's in the former location of Mike's Pizza, at 654 Amsterdam Avenue (near 92nd St.). It's indeed the same Mike as Mike's Bistro.

      1. Anyone know the hashgacha here?

          1. Fantastic burger with caramelized onion + mushrooms + veal bacon. Juicy burgers like these warrant copious amounts of paper napkins, not the white cloth item. The place could have an acceptable noise level without the loud Led Zeppelin(?)-type background music, is that really neccessary? The chicken nugget pieces were flavorful but over-fried on my husband's sandwich.
            Looking forward to more visits there.
