Because May's National Burger Month: 7 Best Burgers in Brooklyn

May is National Burger Month, which means you can eat all the burgers you want, sans calories. 

Okay, so that's not true, but it'd be absolutely wonderful if it was. Regardless, we're still more than willing to accept the fact that we'll never achieve model figure status due to an undying burger obsession. 

So where can you stuff your face with juicy, meaty burgers in Brooklyn? 

These are the absolute best burgers for carnivores in the BK. Trust us, we're experts. 

Check out these incredibly delicious combinations of beef, creativity, and dedication:

Lot 2 (687 6th Avenue)

savortheslope This burger + these duck fat french fries from @lot2restaurant = a perfect start to the weekend. This place is a neighborhood gem. Check it out if you haven't! โœจ #TGIF #burger #fries #pickles #brooklyn #parkslope #savortheslope

The "Creekstone Farms beef burger" from Lot 2 is one of those gems that you constantly crave whenever anyone mentions burgers. It comes topped with cheddar cheese and pickles, and is served with duck fat fries. 


What are duck fat fries? Essentially, they're regular potato french fries, fried in duck fat. Why? Because duck fat is delicious, and duck fat french fries are infinitely better than typical old french fries. 

Two 8 Two (282 Atlantic Avenue)

When you're ordering a burger, your choice of toppings are just as important as the meat itself. So what happens when you combine your meat with your toppings? Then you'd have a delicious "50/50 Burger" from Two 8 Two

It's made with 50% beef and 50% applewood smoked bacon, topped with roasted poblano chiles, cheddar cheese, and two8two sauce. The fat from the bacon complements the beef and takes this burger over the top.

This Smorgasburg favorite is a must for burger fanatic, once you get over the thick-cut, maple-soaked bacon on a stick. 


Their burger is made with creekstone beef, topped with haus sauce, american cheese, lettuce, onion, and tomato. To take it to the next level, add 1h bacon or crispy bacon for only $2 more.  Just be sure to get and order of the fried pickles, or you'll seriously miss out.

When you're at Frites 'n' Meats, you can be assured that your burger is going to be phenominal. Why? Because you create it yourself. 

Their beef is incredible (especially the wagyu beef patties). You have four options of beef, three options of bun, five options of cheese, and a plethora of toppings.
