Steakhouse Burgers

I've yet to try a steakhouse burger since, well, I always order a steak when at a steakhouse :-).

Watching a show and they're talking about the Old Homestead 20oz Kobe burger. Impressed by the size but might opt for the 16oz prime.

Any recs?

  1. I've had the Kobe Burger at The Old's good, but I always get the RibEye and have never been disappointed.

    For the burger....head over to Williamsburg for lunch.

    1. The Peter Luger one lives up to the hype: best steakhouse burger I've had (though I'm not sure when I'd ever stray again from the porterhouse there).

      I have heard that Wolfgang's is also off-the-hook. Can't speak to that one personally, but the one at the Smith & Wollensky Grill was surprisingly satisfying -- undersalted, and I wouldn't call it destination food, but does quite well in a pinch if you're in the area.

        My favorite is Wolfgangs, but the Luger burger is also quite good. 1 and 1A

          Love the Luger, but I can walk to Wolfgang. Do they have it just at lunch, like Luger, or in the evening too?

            Just lunch.

            And you know what I love about the Wolfgang burger? Just that. It's a b-u-r-g-e-r. Notice no adjective in front of it? (read: cheese).

            Thank god for purity.

              Just had the Wolfgang Tribeca Burger. I like the simplicity of it, but it just didn't hit home for me. Actually, I was rather disappointed in the meat quality given that it was from a steakhouse. Given the love for Wolfgang here, I'm willing to give it another shot down the road.

      2. Did you already find the ideal pub burger? Curious as to what you concluded.

          Still like Hurleys/Walkers. Tried Black Market Thursday but not as good imo. Still hunting.
