I read couple weeks ago on Carroll Gardens Patch that there is a burger boom in my neighborhood. It does seem weird to have 4-5 new burger joints opening around the same time though only time will tell if any of these places last. Now, I do get asked a lot about what’s my favorite burger. I usually have no answer for them. I simply do not have one or….I don’t really pay attention to what’s the best burger. I know where to get tasty burgers and where not to go. Also I tend to go to places I’ve been before so there are so many burgers I haven’t tried.
Back to the article from Patch. From there I found that there is a new burger place on Court St close to 9th St called Dubuque (Down Under the Brooklyn Queens Expressway). I didn’t think much about the place at first until people started to tell me how awesome the burgers were. So last week I went with Scott and Steph to check the place out.
Anyways, on to the burgers!
I ordered the “Beef Burger Stuffed With Truffled Mushroom Duxelle with grilled marinated portobella mushrooms and brie”. I have nothing to say but it was just fantastic! Juicy and perfectly medium rare. I was tempted to order another one.
But sadly it was a different story for the sides we ordered. For $6 we got a really small plate of mac n cheese, it was good but I wanted more. The fries ($3) were pretty standard stuff. I had also spotted their brussel sprouts and for $6 it looked small also. So…..next time I’ll just stick with the fries.
