2 Bros. Unveils Breakfast Plus New Burger Menu

It looks as if the 2 Bros. Pizza on 46th btw. 5+6th is now extending the $1 philosophy to breakfast, offering 2 eggs on a roll for just a buck from 7-10:30am. More relevant to this particular site though is their revamped, expanded burger counter menu, which now has more items, toppings and condiments.

I was happy enough with the McDonald’s-esque burgers 2 Bros. was already serving, but the menu now features hot dogs, grilled cheese sandwiches, combos, different sizes of burger patties and a bunch of other options. The free toppings are mostly standard stuff, but it’s nice to see grilled onions, grilled mushrooms and jalapenos. And bacon on top of hot dogs and burgers can only be a good thing.

The only downside is that all this new stuff comes at a cost. The cheapest hamburger used to be $1.50, but it certainly wasn’t 4 oz. I’m not sure if those smaller, cheaper burgers are still available, but it looks clear that 2 Bros. has bigger plans than just offering dirt cheap food. A return visit seems inevitable.

    That’s pretty much the exact Five Guys menu for burgers, but at a far more appealing cost. I’ll give it a shot.

  • Hmm, interesting. I go there for pizza once every two weeks or so. Maybe a burger run is in the works…

  • They’ve convinced me to go this week and check out the burgers. What could possibly go wrong?

  • Cool, I saw that burger menu tonight. Def. looks like they want to throwdown with Five Guys with their unlimited toppings. I haven’t tried it yet.

    I do grab a slice from that location at least once-twice a month so maybe I will try it when in the burger-mood and not a must-have SS day…

  • Got it for lunch today. It’s… yeah, it’s sort of Five Guysish.

    Except the fries are bad. Steak fry cut, but on the solid side without any crispness. They do the Five Guys staple of tossing extra ones into the bag, though.

    The burger itself is decent, two four-ounce patties and four slices of American cheese. I asked for jalapenos, which were doled out, four slices on the bottom bun. Hot sauce is similar to Texas Pete’s. Everything is assembled as the burgers cook (medium-well to well-done; next time I’ll ask for medium-rare), and the wretched practive of turning then cutting with the spatula is avoided, though they do use the iron (without smooshing the patties). Standard roll, lightly toasted on the grill, holds everything together adequately.

    I feel bad for the cook, though; he’s at least six-foot-four, and the burger signage behind the counter, just in front of the grill, hangs at about 5 1/2 feet.

    Didn’t like the first outing–the burgers were overcooked and rubbery, reminding me of the “microwaved hamburgers” you can get on an airplane or train. Definitely not Five Guys quality even though the menu is a blatant carbon copy.

    Granted, I did appreciate the quality of service and care they were putting in–it just seems that because they aren’t really selling many of these (I was the only person ordering there at 1PM and it looked like the grill hadn’t been on in hours), they haven’t perfected how to cook these patties on the grill. The patties themselves are different than those at Five Guys and are presumably of a lesser quality, so it’s going to take some practice to get it right.

  • Went today since it’s been a while. No one on the grill. Burger signage gone. WHY WAS I NOT INFORMED OF THIS DEVELOPMENT?
