as of yesterday’s 90*temp, summer is finally here and the only way to celebrate is with a burger and beer!
i previously discussed my love for breakfast food, but i’m quite the burger connoisseur as well. i’ve had everything from a standard beef to salmon and everything in between. i’ve gone to tons of burger joints in this town, but my heart lies with a little spot in bushwick called ‘burger it up‘. i honestly don’t how i stumbled upon this gem, but i’ve been keeping it a secret for a few months now. it was obviously love at first sight since i was nearly licking the plate.
what makes burger it up so great you ask? first off, customer service! we received a smile as soon as we walked in the door and had pleasant convo throughout our stay. the decor is very vintage burger joint, but not in that cheesy nifty fifties way. good service is great and all, but what about the burgers, right? ok….listen…i’m a big stickler for attention to detail and burger it up is so on the money. it’s very obvious by looking at the toppings on the special burgers, that they really spent time on their menu. the burgers are like an edible editorial spread. they tell a story. i know that this sounds dramatic, but trust meeeeeeee.
i’ve had three burgers (not at the same time. geez guys!) from burger it up, but my fave has to be the chorizo burger. the patty is thick, like maliah thick. they use the same fluffy bread used for tortas and it really makes a difference. all burgers aren’t created equal, so if they have different toppings, they should have different buns also. fries are the obvious burger side, but i suggest ordering the spicy fries. just take my word for it. the best part of this all is that every burger-fries meal on the menu is less than 11 bucks! burger it up has beer to pair with your meal and sangria for anyone trying to keep it classy. for anyone that prefers to melt in their apartment instead of going outside and melting publicly, burger it up is also on all of our fave delivery sites.
if you’ve never spent time in bushwick for whatever odd reason, burger it up is the perfect excuse to stop by. doooo eht! dooooo eht!
