Union Square "Goodburger" Opens, Not Bad!


Well, I guess I should be thankful. Working in Union Square, it has been a long quest for a good, reasonably priced, fast and fresh burger. I have finally found it in Goodburger (http://www.goodburgerny.com/), which has just opened on Broadway between 17th and 18th Streets. Goodburger is the offspring of "Burger Joint", the semi-secret and exceptional burger place hidden in the lobby of Le Parker Meridien hotel. If you haven't been there, make a point of going, it is one of the best burgers in New York. Goodburger was founded by former staffers of "Burger Joint" and it shows. While not quite as good, it's pretty close, and it's much better than waiting in line 45 minutes at Shake Shack. So, if you have a hankering, Goodburger, is, well, pretty good!

For the record, the 3 best 3 burgers in NYC, in no particular order: Melon's, PJ Clarke's, and Burger Joint.

  1. What about Corner Bistro? They made a mean burger back in the day (and might still yet).

    And for dessert, SHake Shack has my favorite ice cream sundae in the City: frozen custard, bittersweet chocolate sauce and REAL whipped cream... MmmmMM.

    You are making me hungry.

  3. Went there last Thursday. Service slow burger tasteless. My friend has a lousy turkey burger as well. Would rather wait in line at Shake Shack then eat this tasteless garbage.

  4. I think Shake Shack is better, but nothing worse than waiting 45 minutes for a burger. If I only had the time. I went back to Goodburger a 2nd time, and it was just as good. I'm not saying knock your socks off great, but pretty good..Darn, now I'm getting hungry!

  5. ok so I went to Melons and yes, that is a fine burger (heh). Something told me though that I could by my own poung of burger meat, waffle fries, lettuce and tomato and achieve a similar result and still have $5 left over!

  7. Hmmm..wondering if that's Barry with the Melon's burger??? Try P.J. Clarke's next.
    And if it is you Barry, I'm gonna drag you out to East hampton next year to see if my own creation competes!

  8. I am sitting and enjoying a turkey burger over mixed greens from good burger. The burger is moist and tasty and the fried unions add a nice texture to the salad. Thanks for the tip!

  9. I'm glad that you are enjoying it! I didn't bring lunch today, so you might see me down there in a little while, if not I'll hit Rainbow Falafel.
