I managed to score lunch reservations at Peter Luger's to check out the killer cheeseburgers I keep hearing about. I've been the Peter Luger's in Queens for their steak, but decided to check out the Brooklyn location this time. It is the original and I hear it is better. The BK location is bigger and there were already people waiting outside before they opened at 11:45. Strangely enough, 99% of the people having lunch were Asian, I kid you not. I guess Asians love. Anyways, while Peter Luger's has pricey steaks, their burgers are reasonably priced.
Cheeseburger, medium rare please. I slathered on some ketchup, Luger sauce, and raw onions and dove in. It was delicious. A bit crumbly, but that just means no bread crumb fillers were added. I housed that burger down! It was a wonderful meaty flavor. I can see why it's known as the best burger in the 5 boros. Definitely a burger I would recommend. I'll be coming back for more!
I ordered the cheeseburger with their delicious bacon. The bacon was a nice thick slice of awesome. It had a nice snap on the outside and the full bacon flavor takes over your mouth with each bite. Not many know this, but I am actually a bacon connoisseur. The bacon at Peter Luger's definitely makes my top 3 best pieces of bacon I've ever tasted. Second place goes to bacon I picked up on a trip to Amish Country. Mmm... bacon... *drool*.
I ended the afternoon by stopping by Central Park to listen to the guitar man on The Hill. Back to chillin on my fav rock!
More videos from this day in the park can be found on my youtube channel.
I'm mentioned in Guitar Man's blog post about this day, pretty cool.
