Back in 2009, A Hamburger Today (Serious Eats) broke the news of a new burger place opening up in the Chelsea/Meatpacking district, I was delighted. And after reading Adam’s review where he basically said the burgers at Bill’s were on the same level of tastiness as Shake Shack. Damn! Those are some strong words and I gotta try it.
Okkkk so fast forward to March 2011. Yeah took me this long but I finally made it. I got the Classic and a side of disco fries. I was surprised to see how tiny the burger was considering it was $6.50. As for the taste, it did taste like I was eating a shack burger but what also makes a shack burger good is the use of potato buns.
Though the disco fries were fantastic. Cheesy..eehh gravy-y.
