The Brooklyn Social Review

Burgers, Beers and Cocktails

Burgers are finally getting the respect they deserve. Glad to find another burger joint on the Derby restaurant scene.

The decor here is quirky and cool. The staff are very helpful and went out of their way for my 3 year old son. We went on a busy Saturday night and there were lots of people. Some enjoying the drinks in the bar and others were there for the food.

I went for the Notorious B.I.G - named after my favourite artist. A  beef patty, American cheese, chorizo, pineapple, fried egg, & jalapenos. It also came with tomato, lettuce and pickled cucumber. I took out the pineapple, normally I ask for it not to be put in but my 3 year old distracted me! Great burger.

What better accompaniment to a burger than a beer. They have my favourite beer on draft here, Blue Moon and it comes served with a wedge of orange. I first had this in the states and thought they had run out of lemon and limes, but it is the way it is served.

My wife went for the burger of the month which was Jerk Chicken, tomato, lettuce and pickled cucumber. She is also not a fan of pineapple on food so left out the pineapple salsa. She liked the burger but thought there could have been more of a Jerk flavour to the chicken,

We went for a side of fries which and they were good.  Next time I will go for the Brooklyn Chilli Cheese Fries.

My son went for The Godfather Part I and II Crispy deep fried chicken tomato, lettuce and pickled cucumber, we chose to leave out the other toppings ( a choice of Beetroot Tzatziki or Harissa Mayo. He really enjoyed it and ate it all (minus the one bite I had for research purposes).  I think I will have this next time with the harissa mayo.

Keep up the good work guys!

  1. Loving the review - will definitely give it a try 😀

  2. The pictures for this review say it all , will be trying this very soon

  3. Brooklyn, New York is one of the most densely populated New York boroughs and is somewhat of an undiscovered treasure for many New York tourists. Often overshadowed by the shining lights of Manhattan, Brooklyn actually holds a variety of exciting and excellent sites that hold their own against the usual aspects of a typical Manhattan ceramic cookware reviews

  4. How sad that processed food is cheaper than organic food. Hopefully with organic food being sold at super food stores, everyone will be able to eat healthy at an affordable price! Nutrient Value of Foods
