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 fare like Sheppard’s Pie, Fish & Chips and of course Burgers. The hand cut Steak Fries were delicious but for someone to claim they have the #1 Burger in New York, that’s a bold claim.
It was a great Burger. It was juicy with crispy Bacon and American cheese. It definitely falls into the Pub Burger category. As far as Pub Burgers are concerned it’s probably near the top. Is it the Best Burger in NY? I don’t think so but there’s always plenty of room for a great Pub Burger.
