Paul’s Da Burger Joint has over 20 burgers on the menu as well as the option to choose either Beef or Turkey. Their Burgers are 8 oz. which equals 1/2 pound for those of you who aren’t good with measurements. Paul’s is located in the East Village and the look of the place can be best described as “a whole bunch of stuff everywhere”.
My wife Marcela decides to sit out this one but does order some Chili. The Chili was good but not out of this world. It had Beans, Ground Beef and was not served with any other toppings.
While waiting for the Burger I uncover a bowl at our table that is filled with Pickles.
My friends Carlos & Linda order the Blue Cheeseburger (Blue Cheese topped w/ Grilled Onions) and a Cheeseburger (it’s American cheese with Grilled Onions) . After much consideration I order the Alpine Burger which is topped with Swiss and I add Bacon.
The Burgers are cooked on a griddle and they use a steaming method via a metal dome that tops the Burgers. I tried all three Burgers we ordered. The Blue Cheeseburger was the best of the 3 and that was because of the Blue Cheese taste. While they were moist and very fresh (they grind their own Sirloin), I found that the Burger itself didn’t have too much flavor. It’s a shame because I really wanted to love this place.
