Burger Joint is one of my favorite burger places in New York. The original location, located in The Parker Meridien Hotel is real good, but always packed. So, I was really looking forward to trying their restaurant on West 8th Street.

I found for sure some similarities in the decor between the two locations: the neon in form of burger of course, as well as the graffitis on the wall (yes, I Just Want To Eat was here!).

But it stopped there. Well, the first interesting artifact was the big zebra at the entrance, as well as the piano in the back...

Then, surprisingly, the place is big and operates differently than the other one: you sit wherever you want and they will take your order at the table, the food being prepared in the back.

Menu wise, they propose a bit more choices and, because they have a liquor license, they have a boozy milkshake...

But, this was not for me: I went for the Oreo cookie milkshake that was thick and deliciously tasty.

Then, our burgers came. At that point, we our noses got filled with the fantastic smell of the meat: this definitely opened even more my appetite.

Jodi ordered the cheeseburger with pickles and ketchup:

On my side, I ordered the double cheeseburger with ketchup and mayo. I admit that I did not expect the patties to be that thick and the cheddar was oozing from it, giving to the burger an even more appetizing look.

This was a spectacular burger: the meat was perfectly cooked (I ordered medium), was juicy and had a nice char. And definitely, it had a nice amount of cheese.

With it, we ordered some French fries that were cooked all the way through and crispy outside. My only regret was that they did not have onion rings on the menu.

You would think that we were full after such a delightful meal. Well, it did not end there...We spoke with the manager, Monica, and she offered us a complimentary brownie topped with vanilla ice cream. I think at that point my pants were about to burst with all that food!

Burger Joint is without any doubt one of the best burger places in New York and I am glad that they opened this location in Greenwich Village that is much more pleasant than the flagship restaurant. At least, we did not have anybody breathing down our neck waiting for us to finish our meal and leave so they can takeover the table. If you are craving a good burger or Burger Joint burger, try their location on West 8th Street: it is awesome!

Enjoy (I surely did)!
