Arriving to the neighborhood early for “Stomp”, we decided to dive in to this dumpy diner to discover a great cheeseburger and decent fries & onion rings. If you’re looking for fancy, keep moving. This is a vintage 1960s with no update ever apparent. You...More

Very nice burger, the meat was flavoury and well cooked! The location is a bit particular, but that's the place to go to eat a good burger at about 10 $

We got this place recommended from a guy on the other side of NYC. It is a small not fancy at all place, but definitely one of the best burgers we ever have been eating!

We were looking for a great hamburger while walking through the East Village. Paul's Da Burger popped up on the list right around the corner from St. Mark's Place. From the front, it's unassuming. But inside it's a trip back in time. It's described as...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighborhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
