Could be Brooklyn's Best Burger – I've been going to 67 Burger for sometime and I've never had a bad experience or burger there. I've gone when the restaurant was empty except for me, and I've gone on the weekends when it's crazy crowded. It's pretty simple: you order at the counter, pick a table, and they bring your food over. You can also order to go. When it's busy the food will take a while, but I've never waited an absurd amount of time. You get what you pay for at 67- not some wimpy sad patty and a small bun. My burgers have always been juicy and huge, and I've tried some of the toppings to spicy things up a bit. I recommend this place if you want a burger and want it done right.
Terrible Service, burgers aren't good lately – I've been to 67 Burger several times as it is in my neighborhood, and recently, it has been HORRIBLE. My boyfriend and I went for our usual burgers and he ordered his rare and I ordered mine medium, WELL apparently it was National Beef Health Week as they did us the generous favor of overcooking our burgers. My boyfriends was more medium (a little pink and only in the middle) and mine was basically well. When we got the gusto to complain, the guy (in a NY baseball cap-his staple), rudely took it away, cut in in half and brought it back saying "we have to cook it a little bit'' in a very sarcastic tone. What an idiot/jerk. Cooking it until its crumbly doesnt mean rare, no matter how inexperienced you may be. Terrible service. Everyone's "too cool for school".
burgers, burgers, burgers – To my great expectation, 67 burger has opened within blocks of my work place! Forget whatever I have ever said about any other burger place, this place is great. There are different sizes of burgers (mini, medium, large...they have fancy names but I forget what they are), plus turkey burgers and veggie and whole wheat buns (which I agree with another reviewer are kind of wimpy). Mediterranean salad was large, fresh and chock full of beautiful cucumbers and tomato. The fries are chip-like (in that they are sliced potato) and fried to a nice crisp-soft texture. This place features a lot of sauces and toppings but since I am a simple-burger lover, I haven't tried them. The lemonade is pretty weak. The milkshakes are thick and cheap. Definitely worth a trip to a rapidly changing and probably soon to be trendily renamed portion of the neighborhood. My roommate and I are pushing for 24/7.
Popular, over-priced frozen patty. Dont waste your time and money – I walk by this place every day, and its always packed. People seem to enjoy it a lot, so I was very excited when I decided to finally give it a try. Service, options, atmosphere are all great. Curly fries were hot and delicious. A wide variety of toppings makes it possible to customize your burger. BUT.... the burger itself is pretty lousy. They make a big show out of frying it in front of you, and it takes so long to get it, you would think they were making it from scratch. But in reality, its a 50-cent frozen molded patty -- the same one you would get in a hospital cafeteria or from Costco. With so many great burger places in this town -- and since even some "fast food" joints (Five Guys) use fresh ground beef -- don't waste your time and money here.
LOTSA BURGER, LITTLE TASTE!!! – Anytime you go to a burger joint and they ask, "Do you need any help understanding the menu?" RUN FOR YOUR LIVES! I mean, what's there to explain about a burger, cheese or no cheese and fries? A lot if you design a menu that looks like a diagram from biology class explaining meiosis and mitosis. After deciphering how to read the manual-i mean menu, I ordered a sizeable cheeseburger that was about as flavorful as a public school lunch. I asked for salt and pepper and was told i didn't need any because there was already sea salt on my fries. Well, since I'm eating and paying for it, I like to decide how my food tastes. I ate half of it, and left the rest for the pigeons; their palates aren't as discriminating.
There's a fine line between good service and harassment. If I say I don' t need anything, it doesn't mean ask me if I'm sure, or come back two minutes later to re-read other menu items hoping that I might change my mind!
I should've known better. It's been my experience that the best burger joints are always low profile. The fancier the place, the poorer the taste.
Dry grilled chicken, with no flavor! – I don't know where the previous people ate but I had a very bad experience. The bun was over toasted. The grilled chicken was very dry, even with pesto sauce & sauteed onions.Where's the cheese? I was supposed to have shaved parmesan cheese on my chicken- I had a difficult time finding it.
Fun place for Great/Creative Burgers – This is a fun burger place with a laid-back atmosphere, creative menu choices, and a firm grip on making a delicious burger.
I've tried The Ranch with Chicken, The Parisian with Beef, a classic burger, as well as a grilled chicken salad. I've been perfectly satisfied with all!
The fries are big enough to share, so if there's only two of you, don't waste your dollars on each getting an order. I prefer the regular french fries, but my boyfriend loves the sweet potato. I recommend at least giving them a try.
Having an outdoor seating option is lovely in the spring/summer, especially considering how lovely a street Lafayette can be during the warm season.
Service is spotty occasionally. I've had to wait in long lines to order while the employees seemed busy staring off into space. But quality never lacks.
Great Burgers! – I dont know what the last guy was talking about, but their burger selection is amazing!! My girl is a Vegetarian and she really enjoyed her veggie burger. I had their Terayki turkey burger. They cook all their burgers to order FRESH so if its busy you may need to be patient. The owners have all the NY papers to read while you wait or you can chill outside at their outdoor dining area. The turkey burger came out fresh and hot with a lot of swiss cheese, and sauteed onions and peppers....I am getting hungry all over again! Trust me I am a big CS user and only leave reviews when the business deserves it and they do. Its worth the trip to see Forte Greene, and eat at 67 Burger if you are coming in from Manhatten. Enjoy!!!!
bad burgers – Worst veggie burger I've ever had. I know, it's a burger place, but if they are on the menu, they should be edible. Service and fries were good, but for 2 people and $30 (at a burger joint), the experience was disappointing.
Go There Now! – A good med-rare cheese burger is one of the great joys in my life, and I've eaten them everywhere in New York from high-end spots like Dumont or Rare to Paul's on 2nd Ave to the diner around the corner. Hands down, the guys at 67 Burger serve one of the best burgers I've ever had. The burgers are always the perfect temperature, the turkey burgers are never dry (my new favorite), and the fries are always crispy. AND...they make amazing milkshakes. Beer milkshakes. I dream about them. Grab something off their list, or make up a ridiculous concoction of a burger from the vast selection of toppings they have (avocado, roasted peppers, artichokes, mushrooms, and on and on and on). It's all good. And the salads are huge and the perfect thing for when I've just gone to the gym and feel too guilty to stuff myself full of meat (I love the house salad and the thai chicken salad!). The staff is really friendly, and they play some of the best music anywhere! (really, i mean it. anywhere.) As for the prices, it's considerably cheaper than anywhere else you might go for lunch or dinner in New York. I rarely spend more than $10-$15 on a burger, fries, and a beer, which is amazing given how good the food is. If you don't care about the quality of your food and just want something cheap to eat, there are a plethora of fast-food joints scattered all over Brooklyn who will serve you their far-below-mediocre-fare for $7. This place is worth every cent of the money I spend there and I am happy to walk 10 blocks for it even in the dead of winter. And my friends are happy to take the train to meet me there. My recommendation...go there now. In the 2 dozen times I've eaten there in the past few months, I've never had a bad experience with anyone who works there, or been disappointed by the food.
