NYC v. Austin #2: Burgers

Come on. Is this even a contest…

NYC
Bonnies – That is all I really need to say, but I’ll say a bit more. Their spiced burgers are the best I have ever had (period)! Swiss cheese, jalepeno peppers, ketchup and chipotle mayonaise. Forget about it! And the fries. (my mouth is watering). Plus they always had a good rotationd of craft beer pouring. The finest hamburger joint. I don’t care what anyone else says, when you go to NYC, friekin go to Brooklyn and get a bloody Bonnie’s burger. And by bloody, I mean medium rare of course.

Austin
It is really not fair. It’s not Austin’s fault. They have great burgers, but how can anything compare when I arrived here with an undying and unending love for another burger. They are bound to lose. I will name off some good spots though:
Hut’s – they say this is Emril’s favorite burger or burger joint, something like that. It is an Austin staple. This was our first burger. They have tons of burger styles, which is cool, but also kind of lame.
Billy’s on Burnet – great burger with buffalo sauce and bleu cheese. Good selection of beer as well.
Dirty Martin’s – great name. This is right near campus. The typical college grease pit. Tasty, but nothing special.
There are others that I have not tried, but seriously, they will never win: P. Terry, Hill's Café, Dan’s, Casino el Camino, BurgerTex

Oh and extra credit goes to Whataburger for yummy fast food burgers.

Winner:
NYC of course.

I've heard that the bulgoki burger at burger tex is good. not exactly sure what it is, some kind of asian spiced burger. also if you go to casino forget the burger, get a chili dog. It will destroy you. Oh, oh and I've heard nothing but good things about the burgers at jackalope which is a bar on sixth street. Look it up. Also theres rad velvet paintings on the walls inside.
