Cheeburger Cheeburger Gets a Sign


Cheeburger Cheeburger, the burger chain headed for the old Miracle Grill space on Seventh Avenue and Third Street, has installed some signage.

The restaurant has kicked construction into overdrive recently, and the franchise's owners plan to bring their burgers, fries, shakes, and salads to the corner by the end of the month. 

Update: Thanks to a commenter for pointing me to this video, where New York food writer Josh Ozersky slams the JFK Jet Blue Terminal Cheeburger, where his "cold, stiff, scarred, inert, gray, tasteless, dry, banal burger with unmelted cheese you couldn't get at the worst grocery in America" served through a "grossly indifferent, freakishly bad" self-serve process came with the wrong toppings.

The landlord of that building should be shamed for bringing such a terrible, poor quality restaurant to such a prime corner of our neighborhood.

I just do get it, does anyone do any type of demographic study. This neighborhood will not support a burger joint . How about a Udon japanese noodle shop. Like Sobaya in the city. It would score in this area

They may have kicked construction into overdrive, but they did a really poor job of clearing the sidewalk during the last big snowstorm. Not exactly rolling out the red carpet to the neighborhood.

Park Slope has fallen on hard times when the opening of a chain burger joint gets people excited. Really sad.

I don't see anyone here excited.

I'm excited!

I'm just not sure I understand the move. The Slope has a nice little food scene that doesn't really seem to want to support places of this ilk. That said, Five Guys seems to be thriving so what do I know?

What I do know is that when I want a burger, I have like 5-10 very good to excellent options in the area that aren't chains and I've never been to Five Guys despite living two blocks away.

But..given that, I'm also not a parent yet and maybe there's an appeal there for families. Ultimately, I think that space was too large for your average newbie restaurant - the rent must be absurd so it's not all that surprising.

Apparently Chipotle wanted that spot but the landlord was holding out for more rent. Sucks because Chipotle would have been the lesser of 2 evils.

Years and years ago you could get wonderful burgers here, and great bloody mary's too.

I could see a burger chain doing okay if it's close to a subway entrance (impulse purchase) or by a lot of bars (drunken purchase), but this place is near neither. It's only saving grace is that there will be a big salad bar there. I could see Park Slopers using that.
