The turkey burger at Maggie’s Place is so good that italianagambino borrows the restaurant’s not-so-secret formula when she cooks her own at home: It’s black beans and chopped scallion, worked into the patty. At Maggie’s it comes with salsa, baby greens, and fries or potato salad.
What’s outside the patty gets almost as much credit as what’s inside among fans of Westville East, which tucks its turkey burger into a tasty Portuguese muffin. Fries are part of the deal; go with the sweet potato option, sammyw111 advises. Zaitzeff also uses Portuguese bread, and silencespeak ranks its version up there with Westville’s as the best in town.
Others recommend the turkey burgers at Westside Brewing Company, with nicely seasoned meat on an English muffin, amiebd reports. Folks also recommend the otherwise lightly regarded New York Burger Company. It’s hit-or-miss, a_and_w allows, but the burger is pretty decent when topped with bacon and avocado.
