Friend of AHT Zach Brooks highlights what he believes to be the best burger cart in Midtown Manhattan. Zach should know—he's the dude who does Midtown Lunch, the ultra-useful blog that directs Midtown desk jockeys to the best hidden spots in what's often thought to be a food wasteland.
He cooks the burger perfectly medium rare, and I have heard more than one person say that if they had fries at this cart, the Burger Joint would be out of business (it’s a very short walk away). The burger does have a great flavor, and I think most of that is due to the fact that John cooks them on the same griddle where he cooks the sausage, and finishes them off on the same griddle where he cooks the steak, chicken and gyro.
The burgers at Carnegie John's are $3.50, $4 for a cheeseburger.
