Village Voice's Description

Is it the best burger in town, as the sign outside proclaims? That's a serious pronouncement, so let's just say it is absolutely in the top five--especially if you're in the camp that likes its burgers thick and messy, burgers that are serious undertakings, not items to be eaten while driving. This monster weighs in at least a half-pound, gloriously bloody juices soaking into a soft but resilient bun. Ask for it rare, with grilled onions on top. The atmosphere is straight from the old country: wood paneled walls, working fireplaces, no-nonsense waitresses who speak in thick brogues and properly generous pours of Jameson. The corned beef is lusciously fatty, and comes with cabbage and a phallic-looking boiled potato. You can also just hang out at the bar and drink Irish coffee all night long.

Tips from foursquare

  • Dan S. on 01/26/10

    Best pub burger in the city. Seriously.

  • Time Out New York on 08/07/13

    Regulars pack in for the unfussy, charbroiled half-pounders, padded with freshly ground New York strip and topped with lettuce and tomato (cheese, bacon and onion are optional). (Readers' Choice)

  • Serious Eats on 10/01/13

    A classic Irish pub beloved by locals. The well-acclaimed burger has slipped recently but there's plenty to love about the atmosphere here.
