Is 2 Bros Burger Operation No More?
2 Bros. $1 pizza empire has multiple locations in Midtown that attract long lines during prime lunch hours, but it seems their attempt to add burgers to the pies at the 46th St. location (btw. 5+6th) did not fare as well. I liked them just fine, but they weren’t cheap enough or good enough to attract much attention and I never even got around to trying their 5 Guys-esque new menu. Last week, a commenter tipped me off to the apparent demise of Bros. Burgers, so I headed over to investigate.
Sure enough, all the signage for burgers is gone, the grill where there were once sizzling patties of beef is now barren, and the counter space in the back is once again just a staging area for uncooked pizzas. I haven’t been able to get in touch with the owner to see what is up with the burger operation, but I can’t say I’m surprised by this development. I think I can count on one hand the number of people I saw patronizing that back counter. It seems a waste to not make better use of all that space back there though. Maybe they’ll give the fried chicken they serve at some other locations a shot next!
