“Smack dab in the heart of manhatten, City Burger satisfies the hungery and weary.”
On to the review:
Black Label Burger
Their signature burger, why even go here if you don’t try it?
The meat is dry aged with a blend of “black label” cow. I got it with the works (minus pickles).
I thought they added too much mustard, too little mayo and ketchup. YOu have to request
to have them cut the burger in half. The burger was very good. I would have liked it
if they toasted the bread. A little on the small side.
Surprisngly, tasty! Toasted, buttered bread, double stacked cheese.
Cookies & Cream Shake
If you really want to try to kill your heart, get this shake with your burger. I could only finish about 25%
before I started to feel my heart clogged with grease, fat and oil.
Do NOT get the fries here. Considering that it’s NYC – very dissapointing, I would place these french
fries in the same category as burger king fries (not a compliment)
Sweet Potato French Fries
If you want to get fries, get the sweet potato fries.
Not bad, a little on the oily side though.
For taste, I would give this place a solid 8.2/10.
Just remember …do..not… get…the…fries
You wouldn’t come here for the ambiance, so kinda irrelevant.
not a server with a waitress place. Sit down benches limited.
For burgers and fries, a little on the pricey side.
If you’re in midtown and are craving either a burger or a shake,
forget Mccy Dies (aka McDonalds) and check out this place.

Bru’s burger bemusing:
City Burger is a no-frills fast food type burger experience with one exception that lets it stand out from other burger joints: their Black Label burger. Concocted of a proprietary blend of premium dry aged beef that is only available at City Burger, this burger takes you on a one-way flight to flavor country.
To get the proper burger expereince, I ordered the standard hamburger cooked medium ($6) with the “works” (LTO, mayo, mustard, ketchup and pickles), the Black Label hamburger ($11) cooked medium (no toppings, just burger and bun), and the onion rings ($4). Let me first say, the burgers were cooked perfectly to order. Medium has plenty of pink inside that is just slightly cooked, as it should be. The two burgers were identical in portion size and buns, and differed only in the patty. But what a huge difference that was. The standard hamburger was tasty with juicy patty and fresh toppings. The buns were nicely toasted on the patty side (a difference one can notice only when eating burger within 5 minutes of it being made) and though the bun itself was a little bland, it maintained the right burger to bun ratio. It was a solid hamburger and by itself would make City Burger a better than your average burger place; unless, that is, you try yourself the Black Label.
Hamburger with the works
Black Label and nothing else
From the first juicy bite, I knew this was no ordinary patty of ground up cow. A rich almost buttery flavor of beef invaded my palate while I savored every dense morsel. Each tender bite was juicer and more flavorful than the next and I flinched twice at my burger to make sure what I was eating: it looked like a hamburger but tasted like a fantastic steak. My only fault with the Black Label, if it can be considered one, is that I wish it were bigger.
Black Label Burger, order it cooked medium or less and with no toppings for the full experience
Onion rings and Sweet Potato Fries
Decor is clean and functional but nothing to write home about
The chocolate shake: thick and sweetness with depth
Not much room for large groups (stool seating)
The french fries, don’t get them.
$11 for a burger does not make burgernomics sense (until you try it)
Getting the worst seat in the place means you’ll have to move every time the restroom door is opened
