That Vaselka burger looks delightful. But the best burger I've tasted was at Doyle's Pub in Westchester Square in the Bronx. I go there once a month as a special treat to myself; a meal there will keep me going all day, or through half the next day if I eat dinner there.

I maybe NY-biased, but none of the others really appealed to me that much. Maybe they just looked too phony or made up for the camera, but I wouldn't go out of my way for them (including the Shake Shack burger, but that's only because I lack patience for that type of thing.) That last one though, I'll go and check it out. But you gotta try the fare at Doyle's...

On the way home from Doyle's: Bruckner Bar. Get some guac too.

Man, you crazy!

I'd beat a nun to death with Bea Arthur's dick to have that burger from Farm Burger in my hands right now.

Or the one from Gruner.

Luckily for me, I've got an In-n-Out down the street ... might just be time for double double-doubles.

Veselka. Funny. I live around the corner and go there for pierogi all the time but I've never had the burger. I go to Paul's down the street for burgers. According to this I've been getting it wrong.

3) Dude, the Bea Arthur bit is the hardest I've laughed all day. Thanks. Sometimes you just got a let er rip.

The "Bea Arthur's dick" crack is from Jeffrey Ross, in one of the Comedy Central Roasts, he was referencing Sandra Bernhardt, IIRCC ...
