Watty and Meg Burger
#1. Double Windsor
Excellent beef (from Pat LaFrieda), perfectly seasoned, perfect toppings, and a rich brioche bun. Everything you need in a burger, and nothing out of place.
210 Prospect Park West, Windsor Terrace
#2. Prime Meats
Rich, dry-aged beef, fancy fixins and a side of superior French fries justify dropping 18 bucks. The thick and super-juicy Black Angus patty comes on a house-made sesame roll with impeccably fresh lettuce and tomato, plus a house-fermented pickle.
465 Court St, Carroll Gardens
#3. Dram Shop
When you’re in the mood for an old-school, no-frills pub burger. A double patty of fresh-ground grass-fed beef, shredded lettuce, tomato, diced onion, pickles, mayo, and mustard, sandwiched on a soft bun and served with crisp and salty hand-cut fries.
339 9th St, Park Slope
#4. Watty & Meg
With Prime Meats nearby, W&M’s burger flies under the radar. But the thick and juicy patty—best when topped with sweet onions and gruyere—is every bit as good. On Mondays, $10 gets you said burger, crispy hand-cut fries and a cold can of Miller High Life, the champagne of beers.
248 Court St, Cobble Hill
#5. Downtown Bar and Grill’s Veggie Burger
This house-made patty of carrots, green beans, sweet peas and corn is packed with vegetarian-friendly flavor. Topped with smoked gouda, herb mayo, buttery avocado, lettuce and tomato, it’s simply the best veggie burger in the land—and it comes with a surprisingly zesty little salad or a big old pile of fries.
160 Court St, Cobble Hill
