What are the 7 best burgers in New York?

As good junkies of the maps, we have also elaborated one for this occasion in which we have included ALL the establishments (because there are some chains) that have for us the best hamburgers of the city.

What I like most about this map is that you can take it on your mobile phone to know exactly where you have the nearest hamburger at all times while visiting the city 😉

But let’s get serious about finding the best hamburger in New York 😉

1. 5Napkin Burger

It’s a shame we couldn’t try 5Napkin Burger burgers, because this site is on ALL the best burger rankings in New York. It will undoubtedly be one of the first places we will visit when we return to New York.

Its name, which in Spanish means ‘the 5 napkin burger’ helps you get an idea of what will happen when you start eating 😉

What’s cool about 5Napkin Burger is that if you go with more people there are other healthier options than the hamburger that they say are also very good: sushi, salads and bowls, various vegetarian dishes, chicken cooked in various ways?

¿Dónde está la mejor hamburguesa de Nueva York? 5Napkin Burger¿Dónde está la mejor hamburguesa de Nueva York? 5Napkin BurgerWhere’s the best burger in New York? 5Napkin Burger.

5Napkin Burger burgers range in price from 13 to 18 USD per person, so keep in mind that it is not one of the cheapest in this ranking. The most famous of them all is the Original Five Napkin Burger, which features gruyere cheese, caramelized onion and rosemary aioli – it makes my mouth water!

They have several locations all over Manhattan, so we’ve left them all marked on the map 😉 They say there’s always a queue, so think about it and plan your visit ahead of time.

2. Corner Bistro

Another classic burger is Corner Bistro, located at 331 West 4th Street. If you’re in the Chelsea area, this may be the perfect location for a good burger, but you’ll probably find plenty of tail.

Don’t expect a huge restaurant, because Corner Bistro is more like a very retro bar with a special atmosphere. No eating the hamburger with delicacy, here we have come to stain our hands 😉

The most famous hamburger on this site is the Bistro Burger, which costs about 13 USD. If you add the drink and the potatoes to this, calculate about 20 USD per person. The good thing about Corner Bistro is that if you’re a beer lover, you have a few to choose from.

3. Burger Joint

Without a doubt, this is one of the most peculiar places we’ve ever been. Located as if it were a clandestine place next to the reception of the Parker hotel (located a few streets south of Central Park) in addition to good hamburgers, it hosts a super special atmosphere. Once you enter the hotel, pass the reception and turn left into the corridor where you can see a curtain in the background.

¿Dónde está la mejor hamburguesa de Nueva York? Burger Joint¿Dónde está la mejor hamburguesa de Nueva York? Burger JointWhere’s the best burger in New York? Burger Joint

A few tables, a small bar and a tiny kitchen make up this peculiar place where you eat some of the best hamburgers in New York. The place is beautifully decorated and has walls full of posters of series and movies from the 80s and 90s and signatures of visitors who come to the Burger Joint to eat what for many is the best hamburger in New York.

Don’t forget that the best way to get money or pay abroad are travel cards, your best allies to save the most on your travels. In this post we review the most important, we tell you their advantages and disadvantages and put at your disposal all the discounts and offers we have achieved for you 😉 For example, if you order your Bnext card through our link and recharge 25 euros, you get another 10. We use it a lot to get money when we arrive at the destination. For its part, the N26 card is the best option to pay when you travel.

What we like most about Burger Joint is that the hamburger is completely customizable. While you wait for the tail, you can take a piece of paper, which is available in several languages, in which you can mark the point of the meat, the type of hamburger and all the extras you can add (lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, bacon …), in addition to potatoes, drink or smoothies. If you feel like it, you can also have brownie for dessert.

We pay 39 USD for dinner for both: two hamburgers, two potato burgers and two soft drinks. So calculate about 18 euros per person with drink and potatoes. If you take the simplest hamburger, it costs only 9 USD.

Get ready to stand in line, because we went in February on a weekday and had to wait about 15-20 minutes to order and because we were very lucky and got a table, but you may not be as lucky as we are.

4. Shake Shack, for me, the best burger in New York.

If there’s a burger paradise for me it’s certainly very close to Shake Shack. Seriously, what rich burgers! With a super simple letter, which stands out for its burgers and shakes that are like drinking a piece of heaven. They also have puppies and other drinks, but what’s cool about Shake Shack are the burgers. And they’re really cool. For me, this is where New York’s best burger is, without a doubt.

And you’re wondering… how’s a chain gonna make the best burgers in New York? Shake Shack originated from a street food cart that started serving hamburgers in Madison Square Park in 2001. And everything that came after that was the fruit of good making and good hamburgers. In fact, the Shake Shack currently in Madison Square Park is one of the most beautiful in the entire city.

¿Dónde está la mejor hamburguesa de Nueva York? Shake Shack¿Dónde está la mejor hamburguesa de Nueva York? Shake ShackWhere’s the best burger in New York? Shake Shack

For me the most classic is a ShackBurger with a cookie shake, but the choice is up to you 😉 That combination of hamburger and shake will cost you between 12 and 15 USD, but… watch out! Because you’re going to want to repeat SAFE 😉

They have a few locations all over Manhattan, so we’ve left them all on the map for you to have them well located 😉 Although there are several, it’s very common to find queues, so it’s best to go to those who are farther from the center.

5. Five Guys, New York’s best burger for Fran

And let’s go with the one that’s New York’s best hamburger for Fran: Five Guys. Without a doubt, this franchise, which has more than 1,000 restaurants around the globe, is not only one of the most famous in New York, but also in the world. They have been preparing hamburgers and potatoes since 86 and have become a great hamburger empire that now offers its food even in Spain (although I will tell you that as the originals are not 😉 ).

Five Guys hamburgers are more forceful than Shake Shack hamburgers, and just like Burger Joint hamburgers, what we like most is that they are super customizable: you can add onions, pickles, mushrooms, jalapeños, various sauces, lettuce, tomato… In addition, on the menu you will find other options such as hot dogs or sandwiches (also vegetarian). But whoever goes to Five Guys has to try his burgers.

Five Guys¿Dónde está la mejor hamburguesa de Nueva York? Five Guys¿Dónde está la mejor hamburguesa de Nueva York? Five GuysWhere’s the best burger in New York? Five Guys

The menu is completed by chips (cooked in peanut oil) and shakes of various flavors, although they are not as rich as those of Shake Shack.

The hamburger, potatoes and a soft drink cost between 13 and 15 USD per person depending on the drink you choose. And it’s true, they’re not the most photogenic burgers in New York, but they are one of the richest.

Just like Shake Shack, Five Guys has a few locations all over Manhattan, so we’ve left them all on the map for you to locate them well 😉 Five Guys is a little less fashionable than Shake Shack so chances are you won’t have trouble finding a place to sit in any of the city’s restaurants.

6. Jackson Hole Burgers

At this point I just want to eat a hamburger, the truth… hahaha. But let’s continue with our ranking, which still leaves us to analyze two of the best hamburgers in New York.

It’s Jackson Hole Burgers’ turn, located at 521 Third Avenue and 232 East 64th Street. Without a doubt, it’s another classic New York hamburger that has been serving food (not just burgers) since ’72. It opened as a family restaurant, and that’s the feeling it still gives today.

¿Dónde está la mejor hamburguesa de Nueva York? Jackson Hole Burgers¿Dónde está la mejor hamburguesa de Nueva York? Jackson Hole BurgersWhere’s the best burger in New York? Jackson Hole Burgers.

They have a lot of hamburger varieties and the menu is completed by a lot of other dishes that are not hamburgers but also look good.

At Jackson Hole Burgers the hamburger, plus the potatoes, plus the drink, come out for about 18-22 USD per person.

7. UPLAND

UPLAND, located at 345 Park Ave S, is not a hamburger restaurant, in fact, they only have one, but they say it’s worth as much as 30. UPLAND is the most fancy restaurant of all those we’ve included in this list, basically because the area you’re in requires it. But don’t be fooled by that elegant appearance, because here we have come to eat hamburger and stain our fingers.

UPLAND has pizzas, fish, meats, lots of vegetables and ONE burger (the UPLAND cheeseburger) that is only served at noon, so keep in mind if you are going to this site.

The UPLAND cheeseburger costs 24 USD, the most expensive of this ranking, but all those who have tried it (we are not among the lucky ones) say that it is VERY top. I just know that it has avocado and I begin to salivate, the truth.

Other very good burgers in New York

If this list is too short for you, we’ll leave you a few other highly recommended burgers in New York:

So what’s the best burger in New York?

I can’t deceive you, I have a very clear favorite: for me the best burger in New York is Shake Shack. However, Fran is very clear that for him the best is Five Guys. It’s VERY difficult! So what you have to do is go to New York and try them all.

If you’ve tried another burger in New York that isn’t on the list, leave it in the comments so we can try it the next time we go to 🙂
