I am looking for suggestions for the best place to have a burger and fries in Manhatten? I am sure there are a million but which is the best!

NYC baby!

I don't know if it's possible to agree on the best anything in NYC! That said, I highly recommend the hamburger and shoestring fries at The Spotted Pig.

Lots of people say Shake Shack is their favourite but I thought the burgers there were just ok. Corner Bistro and Five Napkin Burger are others I've heard good things about but haven't been myself... next time! To be honest the best burger I've had in New York was unexpectedly from a hockey bar (The Flying Puck) which I don't think is particularly renowned for its food. I guess it's all down to personal preference and the luck of the draw sometimes.

Shake Shack is legendary but here's the thing, the different Shake Shacks are of different quality. The ones in Madison Square and Battery Park are, in my mind, MUCH better than the one in Times Square, for instance.

I don't normally eat burgers but when I do, I go to Island Burgers and Shakes on 9th ave.

Stay hungry my friends.

They really got great burgers, and... you guessed it.. Amazing churrascos. Have fun

Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridien gets great reviews. That's one I plan to check out on my trip.

Five Napkin Burgers! I normally do not order burgers in resturants, but thought I would give the "Original" burger at Five Napkins a try. Wow!!! Now, when I make them at home, I make them like this place...or as close as I can get anyway. Really, really good! Great FF's too.

We met some friends that live in NY City for dinner one night on our recent trip and went to a place called Resto. It is on 29th between Lexington & Park Avenue. The burger there was excellent! My hubby said it was the best burger he's ever eaten. I don't think it's on their menu since it's suppposed to be their specialty. It came with fries that were pretty tasty as well!
