It took me a bit to get out to 67 Burger. I’ve been reading a lot about them and it’s been on my list for some time now. Last weekend, I planned a trip to Brooklyn and having 67 Burger for lunch was perfect since it was walking distance to the NY Transit Museum.
Their menu features several different burger combinations, though you can always customize it with the large selection of toppings. In addition to a beef patty, they offer other protein options such as turkey, chicken, veggie (soy based), and tofu. Certainly a fan of this place offering a tofu option.
Of course, since this was my first burger here, I went for The 67 Burger with beef. Served on a toasted sesame seeded bun, the 67 Burger is made up of a daily ground, grass-fed, all natural beef patty topped with creamy blue cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and pickles. The bacon was plentiful and crisp. The cheese was sharp and served as a nice “sauce” compared to regular crumbled blue. They gave you the right amount of red onions, as some places give you too much that they overwhelm your palate. The toasted bun held up to the large burger. The meat, however, was its downfall. I ordered it medium-rare. It was cooked to about that temperature, though I don’t think the grill was hot enough when the burger hit it. After a few bites, half the burger crumbled apart and fell onto the plate. I don’t discriminate against messy burgers, but the meat should somewhat stay intact during consumption. My friend ordered a 67 Burger, too, except rare. His came out a couple minutes after mine and was cooked to medium. His did not appear to fall apart. Perhaps the plates were switched?
In addition to the burger, a friend and I split an order of fries and onion rings. Both were pretty good, though I was partial to the onion rings. They were done perfectly.
After all that I’ve heard, I really, really wanted to like this burger. That crumbling patty was definitely a let down. I believe that this was purely just an off day. I’ll be back to give it another shot sometime.
