1- Shake Shack: the best burgers in New York for some

Several Shake Shack restaurants are open in New York. Renowned for its endless queues at the entrance, Shake Shack offers hot dogs, milkshakes and above all hamburgers that some consider the best in New York. The steak is rich in taste, the bread soft and the cheese melting. Shake Shack burgers are therefore delicious and definitely worth tasting!



If you want to discover them, go to the Shake Shack open in Madison Square Park, it is the most famous of the city. Certainly there will be the tail, but you will live there a 100% American experience and you will be sure to feast!

On average, it takes $ 5.50 for a hamburger, which is accessible to all budgets.

2- Burger Joint: a hidden and authentic restaurant

Burger Joint is another burger restaurant where you are sure to eat well. This one is hidden in Le parker meridien, a luxury hotel. Once entered, head to the left of the reception; you will see a narrow corridor there. Follow the red curtain with the burger sign and enter this hidden restaurant. Once inside, you will discover a warm and friendly atmosphere. The burgers are prepared before your eyes and very good. The best is the cheeseburger with “all the works” (“avec tout”). The latter will surprise you for sure!



As you might expect, Burger Joint is a very popular restaurant. You will therefore have to queue (if you want to be quieter, go before noon or between 15 p.m. and 17 p.m.). And to avoid wasting time and queuing again, choose what you want to order before your turn.

Even if it attracts a lot of people, Burger Joint is therefore the place to go if you want to enjoy a good burger in an atypical place.

On average, you have to pay between $ 11 and $ 18 for a burger.
