What you'll do

We'll start at the beginning and eat our way through the history of the burger. You'll get a chance to try three distinct burgers from three different restaurants. We will kick things off with a classic American cheeseburger, which will set the tone. Then we'll dig into a Minnesotan classic—the "Jucy Lucy." To wrap up, we'll see what all the fuss is about with a top-rated pub-style burger. Once we try each burger, we'll have a chance to rate them like the world-class burger judges we are. Low on filler, this trip is all about giving you the meatiest experience.
Other things to note
Come hungry, because this adventure is guaranteed to fill you up.

Where you'll be

We will focus on the best burgers in Lower Manhattan. We’ll start in the heart of the East Village at the iconic Paul's Da Burger Joint, which embodies a classic '50s style diner. We'll head south from there and end up on Houston and Ludlow Street.

Ammar was a wonderful tour guide. The tour shows how much he knows about burgers and how much he loves. He took us to delicious places that we will certainly go back to. This is the one tour you have to do in NYC.

Really enjoyed the tour with Ammar. I'm from NY and still found that he had new places to show/tell me about which I appreciated. I liked that he adjusted the tour based on what was going on - it was extremely cold and snowing the day he went so he picked another great place that's not on usually on his tour to ensure that we didn't have to be outside for too long.

The Burgerator tour was recommended to me by a friend and it did not disappoint! Ammar is engaging, easy-going but enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about everything burgers. I left the tour feeling like I was a part of the NYC burger-rating club! Totally worth every minute and dollar. Note: go to the tour hungry!
