Blue Collar Burger in Williamsburg
Just had their burgers today for lunch. Both a Burger and Cheeseburger with everything on them and a small fries. Total with tax $11.98.
Some people have been comparing this place to In-N-out, but I would have to say it's a closer match to Shake Shack (minus the insane lines).
The beef was good. Flattened and seared in a similar fashion to Shake Shack. And in my opinion, nearly just as flavorful. Both the burger and cheeseburger were topped with lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, and a special sauce which I'm assuming is a thousand island blend. The veggies on the burger were fresh and crisp. No soggy, flavorless toppings here. The cheeseburger had American cheese which was perfectly melted.
The fries were good as well. Skinny, fast food style that were hot out of the fryer. I ate them all before I got to my second burger.
I would definitely go back here to eat. It's nice to have a burger option in the neighborhood that isn't as huge as Dumont or Diner.
