No Love for Midtown Lunch on Burger Wall


Last week, my boss made the trip over to 45th btw. 5+6th to try the newest Goodburger location, and when he returned asked me a pretty good question. 

“Why arent you on Goodburger’s wall of quotes?”. 

Good question wise and all knowing boss.  Why isn’t Midtown Lunch up on that wall?

So I went back and read my original post on Goodburger from a year and a half ago, and realized the problem.  Quotes like “it’s just another fast food place in Midtown- that happens to use quality ingredients” and “once you resign yourself to paying the money it’s a good Midtown Lunch”, aren’t going to get me up on no wall.  I hear you talkin’ Goodburger.  You want something with zazz!

So, in an effort to get up on Goodburger’s quote wall, I realized I needed to come up with something awesome.  A perfect quote, ready made for them to use, and posted on the site.  And after I do that, how could they deny Midtown Lunch burger wall immortality? How’s this…

“Goodburger is the best burger and fries combo meal in the city (if only it was $2 cheaper).”

They can leave out that last part if they want…


  • I am with you, if they had a 20% discount day, I would go line up.

  • Fine marketing. =P

  • How about: ‘So good it can cure a vegan’

  • It hasnt cured me

  • Rudy: For legal purposes, might want to expand a little…

    ‘So good it can cure a vegan*’

    * Angie not included

  • Goodburger sucks. There’s too many better burger places, and better values to ever want to go there again. They can continue to make their tiny, overcooked $10 burger, but I doubt I’ll be back. BTW, what good is being on the quote wall when they think a clever slogan is “Home of the good burger.”

  • How can Goodburger be the *best*? By definition, isn’t “Better Burger” better than Goodburger?

    I’m so confused….

  • Godbooger, Home of the God Booger.

  • zach, don’t become the Pete Hammond of food blogging!

    if you don’t know hammond, here:

  • how about:
    “The best burger on 45th street between 5th and 6th avenues!”

  • ‘The best is the enemy of the good.”–Voltaire

  • Don’t sell out!

  • How about:

    Goodburger – a pretty good burger, but nothing more.

  • good burger is awesome in my opinion

  • ‘GoodBurger,Not quite shakeshack,is it?’

  • Maybe the don’t have the “cult” cache, but their burger is consistently well prepared.

  • Actually, the best burger on 45th between 5th and 6th is right across the street at Ambrosia’s. Bigger burger, half the price.

  • I asked for a Cheeseburger at Good Burger. The only problem was there wasn’t any cheese on it and I had to go back to get another one. Other than that, the burger was mediocre and nothing to write about.

  • You guys must seriously be used to having carrot sticks for lunch if you call a good burger combo a meal. I had the combo, and then left disgusted at how pathetically small everything was at the price I paid. I had to go get streetmeat for lunch after my snack at goodburger.

  • Sorry it took so long but the wall quotes are part of our pre-opening operations. Since Mr. Midtown Lunch has been more than good to us, we will honor you soon on our wall of fame. Thanks for the loyalty!
