Burgers in Brooklyn

Haven't been to Juniors in ages. Mostly because there is not too much else nearby . I need to make a stop there soon.

Burgers in Brooklyn

Bonnies can be hit or miss I have had one or two times when I left there underwhelmed. But usually I am happy I went there.Where is the Dram Shop located?

Burgers in Brooklyn

As you said to each his own. I just have had nothing but dry thin and tasteless burgers at most of these new chain or chain type theme places that have opened up in the Park Slope and Cobble Hill areas. The best burgers at least for me come from the small mom and pop type places like Bonnies , Watty and Meg etc.

Save your time and go to Bonnies on 5th ave in Park Slope. Every time I go to one of these new burger places I am disappointed .

more Brooklyn Fairway disappointment

I guess I take Fairway like I do all other places I shop. They have some good sale items and some things I have a hard time finding anyplace else and then there are places that do better than they do on the price of different items. And then there are the small gourmet places. They all have their place as far as I am concerned. Just have fun.

Best burger on Smith or Court Streets?

Wadie and Meg(sp.) on court is good too. But you are so close to 5th ave that you should just go over to Bonnies
