New York City is home to some of the greatest burgers in the world, but wars have been fought over what exactly that entails. Whether you’re looking for simple, sophisticated or a skyscraper piled high with toppings, we’ve got you covered.
Here are some of our favorites — a mix of standards and new options that have proved to be instant classics.
If You’ve Got Eyes Bigger Than Your Stomach
A burger and a beer is a satisfying meal in a bowling alley, and you won’t find a set of lanes quite like Bowlmor Times Square.
If you’ve got a voracious appetite, go for the legendary Behemoth Burger. This five-pound, 14-inch round patty is topped with eight slices of bacon, 10 slices of American cheese, 12 slices of tomato, half a head of iceberg lettuce, pickles and a cup of special sauce. Be sure to bring your whole team for this one — the meaty monster is built to split among eight people.
Burn off the calories while you bowl in one of seven uniquely New York-themed lounges — the Coney Island room is one of our favorites, featuring graffiti murals by SoCal-based street artist Jonas Never.
