Pop Burger

Had a chance to check out the new Pop Burger last night , 14 East 58th St. Have never made it to the original in Chelsea, was execited about trying it out.

When we tried to order the counter "help" , with their seemingly put on hipster attitude could not hear what we were trying to order since the music was so loud. So we had to repeat ourselves a couple of times. When we ordered shakes to go with the Pop burgers we were mocked as to who would drink shakes in this weather. It is a good point but keep it to yourselves. They immediately went in to a reach in cooler to grab premade shakes out and put them on the counter.

I can't even think of a worse burger that I have had in years. Altho , they look nice in their little box with their shiny brioche rolls , which were stale , the patties were hard , overcooked and seemed to be reheated and cold at the same time. Lettuce was actually brown and the fries had a fishy essence about them. The best part of the meal was actually
the premade shake.

With the burger joint and five guys with in a stones throw there is no reason to put up with the insolent staff , overcooked cold burgers , premade shakes and music so loud you cant talk to your fellow diners. They should change the name of this place to Poop Burger.
