Is Shake Shack NYC's Best Burger?

By Zagat Staff  |  June 26, 2014

The Danny Meyer chain of burger joints has spread across the five boroughs, but is it the city's best example of art of the hamburger? There's a lot of competition, including the high-end Minetta Tavern Black Label burger and at the other end, the low-brow patties served at J.G. Melon. 

To try and answer this question, we've launched a new survey to find the absolute best burgers in New York. Our editors have picked our top 30 nominees — from big chains to cult local favorites — but if you don't see your favorite spot, there's room for write-in votes.

To make your burger preferences known, check out the survey here. Check back for the results in late July.
