Paul's "Da Burger Joint"

The next time you're in New York City and are in the mood for a really great burger, head on over to the Lower East Side and stop in at Paul's "Da Burger Joint." Located at 131 2nd Avenue (between 7th & 8th Streets) you'll find some of the biggest and tastiest burgers in the city.

One day this past February, Ro & I took our grandkids into Manhattan for the day. While we were walking about the East Village, I spotted Paul's place around lunchtime, so we decided to give it a try.

Some of the unexpected extras inside were the old-time photos and posters. In addition, the owner must be a big Yankees fan 'cause each table is named for a member of the team (or, in Joe Torre's case, an ex-member).

Somewhere beneath the lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions & cheese is a very large and very tasty burger, surrounded by steak fries. They also serve other fine diner-type fare like sandwiches, soups & salads.

  1. Hey Ken---Great looking burgers---the store looks interesting also. Since moving upstate we seldom come back down---but we're looking into a bus company that does day trips to Manhattan for shows, shopping, sports, etc. The prices are pretty good and it will save me the 7-8 hours of driving down and back. My grandmother had a similar stand up radio on her porch forever. It still worked when my Uncle (her son) threw it out in the 1990's.
