J.G. Melon or another better burger?

I don't think you can get American cheese on your burger at Minetta am I wrong?

Also I heard P.J. Clarke's changed their menu and the way that they make the burgers and it is nowhere near as good as it used is this the case?

J.G. Melon or another better burger?

I will be in the city for one day this Wednesday and want a great burger. I moved out of the city 5 years ago so am pretty much completely out of the loop in regards to the burger scene. Before I moved my two favorite burgers in the city were Burger Joint #1 and Peter Luger #2. I'm looking to try a burger that will be just as good or possibly better. I have tried Shake Shack and it didn't really do anything for me. I like to order my burger with just american cheese and ketchup on it. I don't like to get anything else on it the first time I try it.

I was thinking I would try J.G. Melon is this a good choice? Also does anyone have any recs that might be better for the kind of burger I'm looking for? I'm open to anything as long I can order it with American cheese and ketchup. Im really hoping to have a great burger any help would be appreciated.
Thanks all.

LOL Panini Guy you know those pizzas would never make it to Pittsburgh I might even eat them before we get out of CT lol they def make the best pizza in CT. I am from Brooklyn originally and am a pizza guy. What pizza place is your favorite in Pittsburgh? Thanks for all the recs you've been a huge help. Kinda disapointed to hear about Tessaro's I read an article in Playboy (I only read the articles) picking it as one of the top 10 burgers in the U.S. I'll be sure to write back on here to let everyone know how everything was when we get back.

What's up guys,

Never been to PA, I am from CT and I will be in Pittsburgh on Oct 25-27 for the Giants Steelers game, (I'm a diehard Giants fan and my girl is a Steelers fan) and we need some recs for the meals. (2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, and 2 dinners) Not looking for anything fancy just good local places. My only definite so far is Tessaro's I don't wanna miss that burger! Other places I was thinking about after reading other posts were Deluca's, Pamela's, Primanti's, Peppi's (for a "Roethlisburger" are they worth it or no with the limited time we have), and Fatheads. What places should be added or taken away. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give us.
