I'd go back to this place. Small and cosy. Great burgers. Good craft beer menu. Just burgers. Just beer. Best for a small group.

“A Solid Burger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Big, meaty, juicy, never over-cooked, and always flavorful.
It is right in the middle price wise, but it is by far one of the best burgers in the city.
Great beer selection too!

“Best Burger Ever!”

After 24 hours travel to get to New York, the tasty (and speedy arrival) of such a delicious burger was eagerly welcomed. I will be back before I bid New York farewell.

“Great burger.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

We visited black iron burger on a girls trip to New York. While researching for our trip one of the girls read about this place on a blog and then seen more information on another website so after hearing such good things it was decided it was something we should try on our trip. After getting slightly lost on route a helpful New Yorker pointed us in the right direction instantly knowing where we wanted to be.

A small black shop front from the outside inside was more like a bar, dark and small but had a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

There was a good selection on the menu to choose from two of the group choose a washington and our friend who had heard about this place choose the classic with horseradish cheese as she had heard great thing about this and we were not let down. Asked what sides we wanted and even how we would like our burgers cooking which was done to perfection.

An all round great visit and when we return to New York I am 100% sure we will be heading for black iron burger.
