Although Pop Burger (58th St. btw. Mad+5th) garnered some attention from Midtown Lunch in its early days, it dropped off our radar after raising prices and ending the 88 cent burger specials. Despite the restaurant’s isolated location, it seems Pop Burger couldn’t stand up to the competition of burger joints like Shake Shack, Steak N Shake, and Five Guys. Grub street noticed Pop Burger was auctioning its beer tower systems and more, and according to Eater NY, it has since closed.

Oh, Well That Explains It: Pop Burger is just raising their prices to pay for the lawyers they'll need to defend themselves against the Campbell's Soup Company. Well that makes me feel better. [via Eater]

As if the Gray’s Papaya news wasn’t bad enough… this hit the inbox yesterday afternoon about Pop Burger (on 58th btw. Park+Madison): ”Not sure when it happened, but the price of the two pop burgers at the 58th street location are up to $7. They also can’t get much more dry. Just not worth it anymore.” With Five Guys Burgers and Fries on 55th btw. 5+6th, I have to say I totally agree. Reminder: When this place opened less than a year ago, two burgers were $5.
You’ve seen the plywood, the facade, the interior, and the crowd on opening day. But what about the food? I have never been to the Chelsea Pop Burger, so this is a new phenomenon for me. I don’t think ‘Midtown Lunch will never be the same’, but it certainly is an exciting addition. Why? Because I love sliders. If for no other reason than they are fun- and in the end, lunch for me is about one hour of fun in an otherwise busy day at work.
On the other hand, I do see the possible complaints that could arise from the slider situation. (“Fat man want big burger!”) Anytime you are asking me to pay more money, for less food, you’ve got to step it up. Some people do it well (Oms/b), some people- not so much (Yushi). Pop Burger finds itself somewhere in the middle.
On to the food porn!!! Read more »
