J.G. Melon or another better burger?

persico82 | Dec 12, 2010 06:14 AM

I will be in the city for one day this Wednesday and want a great burger. I moved out of the city 5 years ago so am pretty much completely out of the loop in regards to the burger scene. Before I moved my two favorite burgers in the city were Burger Joint #1 and Peter Luger #2. I'm looking to try a burger that will be just as good or possibly better. I have tried Shake Shack and it didn't really do anything for me. I like to order my burger with just american cheese and ketchup on it. I don't like to get anything else on it the first time I try it.

I was thinking I would try J.G. Melon is this a good choice? Also does anyone have any recs that might be better for the kind of burger I'm looking for? I'm open to anything as long I can order it with American cheese and ketchup. Im really hoping to have a great burger any help would be appreciated.
Thanks all.
