A double cheeseburger at The Burger Garage. Still by Alex Lisowski.

Happy Memorial Day, folks. If you’re anything like me, you’re obsessed with grilled meats this time of year. Last week we featured the burgers at The Burger Garage in Long Island City. The brothers running the place are making a very tasty, fast food-style burger with higher-quality meat than you usually find for $6.95– and they’re really nice guys.

The Burger Garage is similar to the Shack in style–although if I had to choose a favorite fast food-style patty the Shack might edge this one out–but this place is in Queens, unlike the Shack, and there’s no line, and if you get a double with onion strings and pickles and sauce on the side and don’t love it, well, then. Hmmph.

Hope you’re having a good weekend, regardless of whether you’re a burger freak. I biked to Coney Island yesterday and it is gonna take that sort of 25-mile roundtrip to keep me in the middleweight fighting category during this summer of bourbon-vanilla ice cream and burgers. Good grief.
