7 Top Bargain Burgers


Power Lunch: The Burger Joint has a fancy address and a $4.50 burger.  

Burger Joint
118 W. 57th St.

A stinging slap in the face to the luxury-burger movement: five ounces of juicy char-grilled beef on a supermarket bun ($4.50).

Blue Smoke
116 E. 27th St.

A mix of brisket, shoulder clod, and chuck gives this ten-ounce burger its superior flavor ($10.95).

122 Union St., Brooklyn

Three bites of quality beef on a tasty minibun—only 99 cents.

Corner Bistro
331 W. 4th St.

A great burger served on a tiny paper plate ($4.50).

57-24 Roosevelt Ave., Woodside

A bar burger second only to Corner B., with much-hailed fried onions ($4.95).

Peter Luger
178 Broadway, Brooklyn

Slightly overrated, but at $5.95, irresistible. Lunch only.

Blue 9 Burger
92 Third Ave.

A good, sloppy fast-food burger with service that is the opposite of snappy ($2.55).
