Sorta Good – I walk past this place all the time so i had to give it a try. The food was average and definitely overpriced. I wouldn't give it another try unless they made some serious changes.
Excited to see 'grass-fed', a bit pricey – I was super excited to find this little grass-fed gem in Chelsea during our recent trip to Manhattan. My husband had a beef burger topped with egg, cheese, and some other goodies. I was delighted to find toppings such as 'egg' on the menu. I had the turkey burger. It was very juicy, rare for a turkey burger. The bun was quite greasy, and the burger itself was not very big and cost around $10...without fries or a drink. If it had been a $6.00 burger, I might have given a 4-star review. The food was good, the atmosphere was great....lots of leg room (rare for Manhattan)...but the food was not worth the prices, especially if you're looking to 'pig out'. Overall okay,
DMANBURGER-"BRGR"-Upper East Side – A new addition to the Upper East Side burger scene, BRGR just opened this past Saturday steps away from Bloomingdales, where FLIP burger has been keeping burger fanatics satisfied since it's opening. BRGR hopes to challenge their burger talents by featuring their popular colorfully labeled Grass fed burgers like the "Blue Sky Burger" "The Beautiful Day Burger" and "The Rainforest Burger". Other faved fried accoutrements include sweet fries, regular fries and onion hay. Black and White Milkshakes and Blueberry Pomegranate shakes also appear. Full review from DMANBURGER to come.
Overpriced & average – the burger was decent but definitely not worth the price. It didn't even come with fries. Not much better than fast food places. I would not go back again.
Best burger on 7th Ave – Best burger I've had all year.Being new to the neighborhood, I have been searching for a great burger. Found it at brgr! Not sure what grass-fed means, but it sure is good and melts in your mouth. With bathing suit weather behind us, you have to try the shake. It gets three WOWs. Staff was busy, but kindof friendly. pricey, but worth it.
Nothing Special – One step above McDonald's. There are a lot of burger places in NYC. i would not recommend going to this one. Burger was average, atmosphere was blah.
Greasy, bland, messy, overpriced – And that was just the veggie burger. The fries were like fast food, and the shake wasn't as great as the reviews said it was. I spent almost $20 there. For the only time ever.
not a good idea between the hours of 11am & 11pm – Like so many new lunch places in NYC these days, Brgr takes a really simple food idea and screws it up, royal-y w/ cheese. It took a good twenty minutes for the surly waiter-dude to drop the greasy sac in my hands. Back at work, I opened the cutesey bag to find a crumpled foil ball with a crumpled cheeseburger. I guess my burger was the one the cooks kept pulling apart and reassembling in front of me. All this: (1) chesseburger w/ complementary fixins and (1) fountain soda = $10.02. But the crowd makes it worth it: 30 yr old dufuses from Columbus OH going on about their summer long bender, alongside the usual slog of balding Bruce-Willis-Dads sneering and drooling at unlucky ladies.
I am sorry if I sound like an a-hole, I just really didn't enjoy it, especially b/c of the cost of it. I also take full responsibility for any and all spelling mistakes.
Expensive and Slow, Large Portions – I went in to brgr on a Sunday night and ordered a veggie burger and fries. It was over $10! Additionally, it wasn't air conditioned even though it was well into the 80s after a day in the mid 90s, so I didn't want to stay to eat there, as I had planned.
There were only about 4 other people ordering/waiting for food in the place, with four cooks and it took 16 minutes for me to get my food! They brought it out in a basket so they had to re-wrap it up and then I was on my way.
The food itself was alright. The french fries were kinda skinny and a little too salty, but that's all in my preference. The portion was generous. The veggie burger wasn't bad, wasn't good. It also was on the larger side. Like others said, the toppings were lacking, even though mine were very basic (ketchup, lettuce, onions).
In all, I don't think I will go back because it was so expensive and not amazing on any front.
Overpriced, way below average burgers. Skip it. – Let me start out by saying I love burgers. You'd be hard-pressed to find a bigger fan than I when it comes to this carnivore's staple.
When brgr opened, my coworkers were the first to try it out. I heard it was expensive and figured I'd wait to hear a few opinions before I tried out a brand new location. The initial response I received was that it was ok, but nothing special. A couple months later, I asked another coworker that I saw had gotten it for lunch. Same response.
Finally, this past week I was craving a burger. McDeath is right across the street from work but screw that. I decided to try it out for myself. The staff was friendly enough. I ordered "the brgr" to go, which is said to come with american cheese, brgr sauce, and grilled onions. I couldn't taste the grilled onions, so I decided to search for them. I found about 3 specks of them. This was pretty much the case with all of the toppings. They were there, but in minimal amounts. Luckily I had some BBQ sauce to salvage the extremely average (and frozen) burger.
I also got the onion hay, which was good but not worth $2.50.
Paying almost $11 for this without a drink is a rip off. If you want a better experience and a truly superior burger, I highly recommend 67 Burger in Brooklyn. (and no, I don't work for/own 67 Burger)
I really don't understand the high rating this place currently has on here. It certainly doesn't deserve it.
