That burger doesn't look all that great.
@8:38 it's annoying to get when it's busy (20-30 min waits) but it's genuinely good, and i like it a lot better than 7th st. happy for their success and looking forward to seeing what else they're planning.
Plus Shake Shack is waiting to open round the corner at Rivington & Norfolk
Should be a nice addition to the playing field. It's a good burger & a notch above 7th St and Smashed. But for me - Shake Shack reigns supreme when it comes to smash burgers. Shake Shack doesn't crisp the edges of the patty as consistently as the others but I like the option of being able to add lettuce, tomato and raw onions to cut the richness which the others don't have. Yea, I know its not the traditional way of just having grilled onion on the smash burger but it works for me. Shake Shack also has chicken sandwiches too which gives them an edge.
Better than empty, which this place has been since the pharmacy (?) moved out.
You nut jobs saying Shake Shack is better are laughable. Nothing beats this burger. Nothing. If Shake Shack is thinking of opening nearby, they will be sorry. It will actually help Gotham Burger to have Shack Shack nearby because it will allow for a more head to head taste off. If anyone reading this thinks Shake Shack is better, you will be happily surprised to support a small business burger that’s putting out a much better burger. Only thing Im bummed about is the inevitable line but it will be so worth it.
