There’s nothing more comforting than a solid, well-cooked good burger. And when that burger is prepared well with fantastic meat, and delicious toppings, and delivered directly to your door… well it’s pretty magical. So when we heard that NYC’s GO Burger was starting to take orders through Seamless, we knew it would be special. So, we sat down with the folks behind GO Burger to dish on all things between the bread. Check it out:
Seamless: GO Burger is the sibling restaurant to the well-known BLT Burger. What can hungry eaters expect to find that is different at GO Burger?
GO Burger: At GO Burger UES guests can expect a broader variety in menu offerings. Our new menu includes a range of tacos and signature salads such as the Crispy Cod Taco and the Asian Chicken Salad. Not to mention our new specialty sandwiches including the Tuna BLT and Grilled Chicken Club (no membership required). There are also, of course, the innovative burgers we have become well-known for such as the Miso Hungry and Mac & Cheese. The vibe at GO Burger is also different. With 9 large flat screens, guests can come in, grab a burger and relax with the game or their favorite TV show.
S: How do you come up with signature dishes like the “UltiMELT” or the Backyard Burger?
GB: We like to take the comfort foods people already love and think of ways to format them into a burger. The UltiMELT is a perfect example. We took two grilled cheese sandwiches, stuffed bacon, caramelized onion and a beef patty between them, and… voila we have a gourmet take on everyone’s favorite comfort food.
S: GO Burger is more than just burgers. What are some other tasty creations you offer on your menu?
GB: The TURK, Veggie Falafel and Salmon Burgers are delicious options for non red meat eaters. We are also famous for our Waffle Bites, waffle fries topped with cheddar, sour cream, bacon and pickled jalapenos, which just melt in your mouth. For your sweet tooth, our Shakes will knock your socks off — try the Twinkie Boy, made with vanilla ice cream, Twinkies and caramel syrup.
S: Describe your ultimate (and maybe messiest) Go Burger experience?
GB: With such a wide variety on our menu, the ultimate experience would be to come in with a group of family or friends and try a bit of everything. (Our spiked shakes are pretty strong, so be careful, or you might end up feeling a bit messy!) Once you’ve sampled the full menu, building your own burger is another great way to personalize your experience. For example, try adding our GO Burger Special Sauce for that over-the-top decadent flavor. Or for a burger that’s truly your own, be your own chef with possible add-ons including a fried egg, madeira mushrooms, tempura red onion rings and gruyere cheese.
S: You deliver everything from custom built burgers to a “monkey business milkshake.” What are some of your most popular ordered dishes?
GB: Our Kobe beef Pigs in a Blanket are a fun take on the traditional hors d’oeuvre and are always a hit. Also, our Fried Dill Pickles are a definite crowd pleaser. And you can’t go wrong with the simplicity of the Backyard Burger; guarantee you’ll love it!
