Expert review of Black Iron Burger Shop

A budget-minded burger joint and bar in the East Village.

Getting a great burger doesn't mean you have to go to a fancy restaurant. The Black Iron Burger Shop in the East Village is one of the best burger joints in the city, mainly because of the quality of the food, but also for the price. The eatery doubles as a bar so go for the burgers and stay for the drinks and good music. 

Food and drink: 

You'd think that because this is a restaurant/bar the quality would be poor... au contraire. The meat is 100 per cent USDA certified beef. The bartenders only serve craft beer and wine. 

Recommended dishes: 

Besides the angus burgers, the restaurant serves a vegetarian-friendly falafel burger. For the meat ones, try the Black Jack, which has chili, monterey jack and jalapenos. The Iron Horse has horseradish cheddar and onions on two all-beef patties. 

Ambience: 

The ambience is no-nonsense and no-frills. It's a real hole in the wall, but everyone is welcome and the main crowd is young and hip. But avoid going there on hot days, the restaurant doesn't have air conditioning so you'll sweat. 

Service: 

The servers and bartenders are very friendly. Service can be a bit crazed during peak times but you won't wait long for your food. 

Location: 

In Alphabet City in the East Village. This is a quieter part of the usually bustling East Village.

Price advice: 

Prices are fairly inexpensive, dinner for two runs to about $40.
