1. Butcher Bar–3710 30th Ave., Astoria, NY 11103-4331

Whether you stop in to try Butcher Bar’s infamous burnt-end meat candy or are just in the mood for a perfect burger, you’ll find BBQ that makes you feel like you’re south of the Mason-Dixon line.

Give the Mac & Cheese burger a try—the Butcher’s Burger topped with a hearty helping of the shop’s famous cheesy macaroni.

2. Court Square Diner—530 23rd St., Long Island City, NY 11101-4726

There’s nothing like settling into a cozy diner to enjoy a perfect burger. At Court Square, you’ll get a pound of beef served with classic New York flavor.

Donovan’s serves up a hearty serving of Irish-American culture that is wholly authentic. With 17 mouthwatering burgers to choose from, Donovan’s is a landmark gathering place among the locals.

4. Burger Village—40-17 Broadway, Astoria, NY 11103

The creators of Burger Village had the idea of accommodating healthy eating with busy lifestyles and created a place where everyone can eat healthy organic meals alongside excellent customer service. Serving organic grass-fed beef, cage-free organic turkey and chicken, and exotic meats like bison, elk, lamb, and wild boar. In addition, they have organic veggie, black bean, and mushroom patties, as well as Impossible and Beyond Burgers for the “un-meat lovers.” They also provide gluten-free, peanut-free, vegan, and plant-based choices.

5. Jackson Hole—6935 Astoria Blvd., East Elmhurst, NY 11370

The Time Out New York Eating and Drinking Awards deemed Jackson Hole as having the best burger in New York–and patrons are on the same page. The restaurant’s house-aged burger is their signature item, and the chefs and owners put their hearts and souls into creating a memorable dining experience for customers. For an authentic New York experience, try the East Sider burger, a delicious all-beef (diners also have the option of a turkey or veggie burger) patty loaded with American cheese, ham, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms, and fried onions.
