Stunt Burgers: Not Just a Burger King Thing!

Clockwise: Crisp, Rockography, M Wells and BK

Incredibly, Slate spills almost 1,000 words reviewing BK’s new Stuffed Steakhouse Burger — if word that it’s a “worthwhile contender for best fast-food stuffed item” doesn’t quite sell you on it, rest assured there are plenty of new stunt burgers on the local scene as well.

A couple of days ago, A Hamburger Today tried the $42, 2.4-pound burger at M. Wells (it can be topped with foie gras for an extra $100) and decided its “tastiness is overshadowed by its unwieldiness.” Now Metromix has a look at Rockography’s F.U. Burger and its sixteen-ounce patty, fried tomatoes, onion rings, Velveeta, maple-glazed bacon, and fried egg. And Midtown Lunch experiences “one messy sandwich” — Crisp’s new Baba-Burger (Babaganoush and goat cheese on a falafel burger). Oh, and perhaps the most famous glamburger of them all, the Minetta Tavern Black Label burger, is named New York’s best in a Food & Wine’s list of their favorite 25 across the nation.
