Food in Mouth


67 Burger is a good meal

I used to have this thing about finishing everything on my plate. Not sure when it really started but it goes something like this, "Some people can't find enough food to eat and you're gonna throw it away? You prick. Finish him! (btw, only the first 30 seconds of that video is relevant.. ) But that was before I started Food in Mouth and eating like Britney Spears post-pregnancy. So when Pat and I were at 67 Burger, it pained me to walk away from half a basket of sweet potato fries. We had to choose, finish the burger or finish the fries.

67 Burger came up again on my radar after the Times mentioned it in their $25 and under section. Prior to that, it was featured on A Hamburger Today (AHT). Since it's in the hood, I had to go check it out.

I only look for two different options at burger places: plain cheeseburger or bacon cheeseburger. 67 Burger has a plain for $7 and a bacon cheeseburger for $8.75. I chose the bacon cheese version but the fries came out first and they were delicious.

In the comments section of the AHT post, someone mentioned that the fries were not salted. Either that was an anomaly or the owner saw the post and corrected the salt situation. Both the sweet potato fries and the curly fries came well-seasoned. The sweet potato fries were really good, but I enjoyed the curly fries more. Yes maybe they're frozen fries but they reminded me of fries I used to have as a kid. Rally's. They're the same company as Checkers and they make my favorite fast food fries. They probably season it with some meth or something like that, it's highly addictive. Yea, so these curly fries remind me of meth. I mean, Rally's seasoned fries.


At 67 Burger, they melt the cheese on top of the patty. (You hear that Black Iron Burger? On top of the patty, yo). And the bacon is placed beneath the patty. This was great for a variety of reasons. It let me photograph the cheese and the bacon separately. Weee! (yea so pointless, why even mention this?) The second reason was that it allowed me to eat the burger with bacon or take the bacon off. 67 Burger is generous with their crispy bacon, and I suggest you remove the bacon and eat it with the rabbit food. Look at it this way, it's a naked BLT. You have letters, tomato, and bacon.. just no bread. See, two sandwiches in one!


Once you finish your appetizer of a naked BLT, you can move onto the main event. As a plain cheese burger, I think 67's is hard to beat. The patty is aggressively salted which saves you from tasteless meat. The cooks at 67 Burger also get the temperature correctly. The meat was nice and pink and quite juicy. I ran through quite a few napkins and had to constantly dry my fingers switching between bites and taking pictures.

One last thing I love about 67 Burger is the free refills on the pop. Mmmm.. that's soda or coke to some of you. There's something awesome about all the high fructose corn syrup that I can drink. Since most foodies shun the fake stuff, there's just more for me. Here, they even give me all that I can handle. That's what I call service. Between the fries and the pop and the awesome burger, I was unable to finish all my food. It's ok though because that just means I have to go more often in the future and practice my ability to finish all my food.

Type "dumplings" (minus quotes) in the next box, this is required

  • I have that little voice in my head too. It's called "Mom" or "Typical Asian Mom". "What about the starving kids in Ethiopia, Yvo? They don't get to eat and you're going to waste that last three grains of rice." No wonder I have a complex.

    Coincidentally, I'm writing a burger post, too. Yours looks better...

  • yum, curly fries!

  • I hope it's just my computer monitor, but that burger looks the color of pink cotton candy on the inside. Yet I still want one!

  • ya know, it was good, but I didn't think it was THAT good. The fries and free refills on soda were great (

  • your comment system sucks, it ate the rest of my comment. anyways, I said that I grew up saying pop, but now it sounds weird to me. I'd give the burger a 7 out of 10.

  • Me want cheeseburgers!!! Thanks Danny.

  • Gees that looks delicious! So the buger and fries together is $8.75? or just the burger? Still, it's a decent price for just the burger itself. I loveee sweet potato fries...I'd have to hop on the G one day and try it. But the G is such a hassle now that I don't ride the L..-=(

  • Keep up the good work on instructing these east coasters on the proper name for the carbonated yumminess known as pop!

  • Yvo,
    Yea.. it has to be mom... but that's ok, it just means i will eat more..

    I know!!! right?!

    Mmm.. cotton candy burger...

    Well you are comparing this to the triple whopper so...

    I'm doing my job right then!

    The burger itself is $8.75. Sorry for the confusion! And you can get there by taking the N or Q or 4 or 5 train and then walking there. It's really close to the station.

    Mmmmhmmmm. Just trying to edumacate them..

  • I used to say pop, but now I say soda...
