Heading into the bowels of Manhattan at Times Square / Port Authority is something close to pure hell. Having a burger depot there is the only solace and reason for ever going there, other than to catch a dirty bus out of town.
Schnipper’s is a massive burger factory, yet they still generate some wait time after you order. This joint is a notch above standard fast food, on par with a Shake Shack type of environment.
I got a cheeseburger with crispy onions, lettuce, tomato, pickle and Schnipper’s sauce. Add to that an order of fries, and a vanilla shake. My total was $18.15.
A bit hefty, but I’ll bite. The burger was good; maybe just needed a touch more seasoning/salt. It was nicely cooked to the proper temperature.
The fries were pretty satisfying and on par with a McDonalds-meets-Burger King fry (lightly battered thin, crispy fries).
The shake was good because I didn’t have to dislocate my neck bones to suck the shit up through a single straw. Other joints should take a lesson from Schnipper’s on that angle. Shakes should not be too thick to the point where you need a fucking spoon. They are shakes, after all – not ice cream fucking sundaes.
