The Buffalo Cantina is best known for being the location of the pilot episode of Man v. Food. Adam Richman attempted a Wing challenge in that episode that he could not complete and later of course returned to defeat the challenge.  It’s the reason that brought us here.

Jahn’s Ice Cream Parlour In Jackson Heights, , Queens, New York

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in New York, Visits by Burger Beast

With its wood grain panels and dodgeball sized lights lining the wall, Jahn’s really sets the mood for an old school ice cream shop. I felt as if I were on the set of a Back To The Future film (I mean this in a good way). Jahn’s was once a chain that had locations […]

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in New York, You Know What's Really Good

Right down the street from the IFC Theater in the West Village I came across Papaya Dog. It was late and I was hungry. 2 Hot Dogs later I was satisfied. The Papaya Dog is very reminiscent of a Sabrett dog and it just might be a Sabrett dog. It had a nice pop when […]

McSorley’s Old Ale House opened up way back in 1854. It’s seen its fair share of Presidents and Celebrities but one thing doesn’t appear to have changed and that’s its decor. It’s like being able to step back to a simpler time where there weren’t dozens of choices when it comes to beer. Here you […]

There’s no way to miss the giant banner on the side of Donovan’s Pub proclaiming them to have the #1 Burger in New York.  The layout inside is what you would expect from an Irish pub from 1966 with its dark wood, stained glass windows and low lighting. The food here is standard Irish pub […]

While wandering aimlessly around New York I ran into Burger Heaven (there are 2 more around town). I figured I would give it a shot. After being seated I looked at the paper placemat in front of me. It was all about the Celebrity Apprentice episode featuring Burger Heaven. After having watched the episode and […]
