On saturday, I shot some baby photos for a friend’s Christmas card in Ft. Greene. I hopped on a bus and headed to Brooklyn. I’ve been to Ft. Greene a few times, but mainly just to see my friend Alexis, and have rarely explored the area. I had a camera trade off with my coworker immediately after the shoot so we decided to meet for lunch around 2PM. Not familiar with the area, we called another coworker who lived near by. After deciding we wanted a good ol’ greasy burger for lunch, Rick suggested 67 Burger.
We popped in and the feel was similar to Ray’s Hellburger in Arlington, VA. Starting with a standard burger, you had the option to choose one of their specialty burgers, or create your own. You order at the counter and they give you a number to take to a table, then bring your food. No sitting and being served, no holding tables, but somehow, like at Ray’s, it works.
There were so many choices I was fairly overwhelmed. Rick recommended the Ranch burger, which sounded amazing, but making a game time decision, I chose the Western. A standard burger (rather than turkey chicken or veggie) they added BBQ Onions and cheddar cheese. I added a side of cajun fries as well, because, well, they just sounded amazing! And I was right. The whole meal was delicious. One of the best burgers I’ve had in a while, and perfectly cooked. The cajun fries were coated, not sprinkled, with cajun and were perfectly crispy.
Pretty sure I’m going to be visiting my friends in Ft. Greene a little more often!
