Blue Collar Burgers is everything a burger place should be. It’s a counter service joint with a tight little menu of burgers, dogs, fries, and shakes. The place is tiny, it’s cheap, and it’s pretty damn good. I’m a sucker for burgers like this. The bright yellow American cheese blankets the thin griddled patty, fresh crunchy vegetables all on a soft potato bun. When done right, a burger of this style should be a particular size. A petite burger can be more like a lovely snack than a gut bomb, and this little guys weighs in at only 3.5 oz. It’s compact and the meat to topping to bun ration works like a charm. Wrapped tightly in tin foil, Blue Collar makes the perfect road burger for cruising around Williamsburg with all the yups.
