Looking for a damn good burger in manhattan?

I tried "5 Napkin" burger. It was pretty good although i expected the burger to be warmer.

Any suggestions on a better burger and some nice fries? I notice "shake shack" is always packed. Are the burgers really worth the wait or do people go there because prices seem reasonable?

Thanks

Wow black label burger at Minettas *drool* maybe ill try that before the bball game in brooklyn. I think its on the way :) looks fancy shmancy.

I hear alot about the meriden as well. Seems they appear to have quite good food overall.

Hmmm,

My husband swears that the burger at Resto is the best burger he's ever had...and he's had lots of burgers in his life! I believe Resto is on 28th or 29th Street kind of near Lexington Avenue. And I don't think it's on their menu, so you just have to ask for it. And the fries that come with it are pretty yummy as well. Of course, it's not as cheap as the Shake Shack!

Shake Shack is certainly worth the wait! I suggest trying the Battery Park location- one of the newer locations. The wait there never seems quite as long as say, the one at Madison Square Park.

Have fun!!

I never liked Shake Shack, thought it was too hyped.

I suggest Corner Bistro. A classic. Making burgers for more than 50 yrs.
