George Motz’s Hamburger America Restaurant is now open. Oh, it’s true, it’s damn true!
Stepping into HAMBURGER AMERICA is a step back in time. Our 15-stool diner is an authentic piece of living hamburger history, a LOVE LETTER to one of America’s favorite foods.– George Motz
It’s currently in soft open mode, so hours are limited. Make sure to keep checking the Hamburger America restaurant website for the current hours of operation.

This is some exciting burger news: George Motz will open a Hamburger America restaurant in New York. While it was initially slated to open in May 2023, just in time to celebrate National Burger Month, due to typical restaurant delays, it’s looking like mid-October 2023.
In case you’re new to the adventures of George Motz, Hamburger America is the name of his documentary and books highlighting historically significant burger joints. I’ll just let George explain his vision.
Walking into Hamburger America will be a step back in time, but don’t expect kitsch. My love of the American Hamburger is deep and my burger joint knowledge extensive. Expect a beautiful counter with stools, quick service, and of course onion burgs. Also, we plan to have a rotating menu of burgers from around the country with visits from my hamburger heroes.
I’m no fool and refused to open a restaurant without proper support, and that’s where the Schnipper Brothers come in. I plan to be in the restaurant every damn day but the @Schnippers will be managing the day-to-day with their decades of experience.– George Motz
