On a quest to try the best burger in the Empire State? Try the one beloved by celebs that has been named the best in New York.

If you follow my posts, you know food is one of my favorite things to write about. In fact, it is my favorite thing! Because, well I love the research of trying new things or discovering that great restaurant I just HAVE to try! And I am on an endless quest to track down the best burger joints.


24/7 Tempo has helped that quest by naming their best hole-in-the-wall burger joint in every state in the nation. What is their criteria? 24/7 Temp says the definition of a great burger joint is "...modest quarters usually with minimal decoration...with personality and has grown into a local institution as well as just a place for food."

Now the really cool thing about the honoree for New York is it has been known to be a big burger destination for celebrities and foodies like James Gandolfini, Andy Cohen, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Anthony Bourdain, and more!
