691 8th Avenue (8th Ave & 44th St) New York, NY
Open daily, 11:00 a.m. until midnight, you can grab a tasty Shake Shack burger almost anytime the craving strikes. And, since the Theater District Shake Shack is located in Midtown Manhattan’s West Side, it’s the perfect place to stop off post or pre Broadway show. We suggest you grab a seat near the floor-to-ceiling windows for optimum people watching!
You should know that all of the Shake Shack’s burgers are 100% all-natural Angus beef, no hormones and no antibiotics. Try a Classic Shak burger for less than five bucks, or a scrumptious mushroom burger: a crisp-fried Portobello mushroom overflowing with melted Muenster and cheddar cheeses, then topped with lettuce, tomato and ShackSauce. And don’t even think of leaving the Shake Shack without devouring a shake! Try a classic hand-spun vanilla shake or get nutty with a creamy peanut butter one.
690 3rd Avenue, New York, NY
How does a Five Guys Little Bacon Burger sound? Topped with hot sauce, grilled mushrooms and grilled Jalapenos, it’s one of Five Guys most popular bites. Despite the fact that Five Guys is a major chain, you can expect a decidedly New York vibe at Midtown’s Five Guys. Open daily 11:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.
Bill’s Bar and Burger
Rockefeller Center, 16 West 51st Street at 5th Avenue, New York, NY
If you want a juicy burger paired with a flavorful experience, then Bills Bar and Burger is the place to head to. Of course you’ll find a classic cheeseburger, like the Bill’s Burger- but you’ll also discover out-of-the-box burgers like the Spicy Jalapeño Burger that features pepper Jack Cheese, Pico De Gallo, Jalapeños and more. And if a traditional New York hot dog is what you’re craving, don’t worry. Bill’s hot dogs won’t disappoint you. For the ultimate combo we highly recommend you pair your burger with one of Bill’s famous cupcakes.
