1. Boilermaker.

Boilermaker lives up to its name, as it’s completely full of men who make boilers for a living. Just kidding! They do beer and shot combos. But in addition to Narragansett and Ancient Age bourbon, it’s also home to a burger from Miguel Trinidad, of nearby Filipino favorite Jeepney. It’s relatively cheap ($11 for a double, $8 for a single, plus an extra dollar for bacon and cheese) and comes topped with Jeepney’s Atchara — traditional pickled vegetables from the Philippines that pair an intriguing sweet & sour taste with the meat

Address: 1st Avenue 13 NY US, (212) 995-5400.

2. Hard Times Sundaes.

“I’ve always had a passion for the old-school American burger,” says Will Horowitz, the chef behind Harry & Ida’s. Andrew Zurica’s truck and its exquisite burgers used to be something of a secret, parked in Mill Basin, Brooklyn. Now, you can find them in UrbanSpace’s midtown food hall, Vanderbilt Market. Horowitz goes for the double cheeseburger, calling it “an unsung hero in a tragic world of overstuffed and overpriced burgers.” ($9.50).

3. Joe Jr. Restaurant.

What makes the burger at Joe Jr. extraordinary? “It’s so good and so simple,” says Bobby Hellen, the chef at GG’s. Hellen first started visiting the scruffy little diner for his usual order of a burger with a slice of American cheese about 8 years ago, when he worked in a kitchen nearby. ($4.90) .

Address: Joe Jr., 167 3rd Avenue; (212) 473-5150.
