Chef Cory McPherson calls his patty "the best burger on the block," an assertion that may well be true on this stretch of Greenpoint Avenue. Get past the punny name and the antiseptic, vaguely retro yellow interior, and you'll be treated to a classic, if unremarkable Hereford-beef grind served on a soft sesame bun with a side of fries. Grab some extra napkins and prepare for a messy table—with toppings like caramelized Vidalia onion and blue cheese, or iceberg lettuce, Jersey tomato, and "Government" cheese (good ol’ processed American), these burgers are impressively overstuffed. The brightly lit joint also serves up "Doggies," Mom's Secret Family Recipe coleslaw, and steaming hot pierogi. For those averse to red meat, there's an Asian chicken burger with chile-garlic mayo and a sesame-crusted yellowfin-tuna burger. Cap off the night with a Boylan's Artesian soda or a nostalgic, creamy black-raspberry milk shake.
