BRGR is a bit overpriced however they tell you exactly where they are getting all of their products. the reason it is so expensive is because the ingredients are from fresh farm products and not some mass produced juiced up cows or turkeys. Getting a BRGR burger is more of a treat. after i eat a burger there as opposed to a diner, i dont actually feel like it weighs me down. the fries are out of control good, as well as the shake. however, mine and my sisters favorite item on the menu is the icecream sandwhich, the perfect way to top off ANY meal (like after going to SPICE on 8th ave, we walk over and have our 3.50 two person icecream sandwhich) p.s.-i love the variety of things you can put on your burger

It's amazing how overpaying can trigger people to write horrible reviews. BRGR actually has a pretty solid burger.... Their problem is the thing isn't spectacular and it's going to cost you over $10 (more like $13) for lunch. I find the turkey burger to be much better than the regular beef burger especially considering turkey burgers usually aren't good. The toppings are solid... And yes, ordering a turkey burger allows you to leverage the saved fat with a slice of brie. Considering the lack of decency in the area, BRGR is better then the numerous hell-hole delis serving 'burgers'. I'd love to hear an alternative within decent walking distance..

Yes, the burgers are overpriced. Yes, Manhattan is full of ridiculous trend restaurants. But the shakes here are the best in the city,the blueberry pomegranate in particular. The fries are only ok.

I work nearby and really looked forward to this place, I wanted it to be good..it isn't. I've been several times, hoping they'd get on track..well I've stopped going. It's not a good burger at all, the Greek diner on 28th & 7th is better, and half the price. Sad.

I agree with T's review below. This place isn't very good, it's not good, it's not even passable. The burgers are tasteless, characterless, and how such a place like this exists and thrives in a foodie town is a mystery. I had a cheddar burger, which I asked cooked medium rare; the cheese was gloppy and could have been American or Swiss, and the patty itself was overcooked and extremely bland. It was WAY overpriced too.

I'm confused as to how this type of place can exist in manhattan. Either A) people just don't care and they'll eat anything or B) people have no idea what good food is and are unable to decide where to eat or what they like without the gentle hand of some trendy marketing to walk them along. I guess a hokey atmosphere helps as well. The burger was decent at best and that's if you can find the paper thin patty which is easily dwarfed by a slice of tomato. After you put on the $10.85 price tag which only includes fries, you have yourself an awful meal. Just off the top of my head, Shake Shack, NY burger, Corner Bistro, and Wild Greens all put his place to shame not to mention the fact that Wild Greens and Corner Bistro are half the price....

boring, bland. No toppings were tasty and nothing was fresh. Greasy and overpriced. the reviews are correct.
