Gimme a Juicy Burger, Gimme Schnipper’s

Nothing like a good juicy hamburger when you’re hungry and time is short.

Schnipper’s on 8th Avenue in Midtown Manhattan (adjacent to the New York Times office) has earned a well-deserved reputation for its burgers.

I happened to be there recently and can strongly vouch for their great flavor.

I didn’t douse my hamburger with sauce as some schmucks do.

Instead, I just went with the standard L.T.P.O (lettuce, tomato, pickle and onion) and got it cooked medium well.

My hamburger cost $5.50.

The patty was juicy, the bun decent and overall the burger did not give much cause to whine about.

Sitting in the sprawling restaurant, digging into my juicy burger and watching the babes walk past.


Beats ogling at the Bollywood babes Sonakshi Sinha or Ileana.

Of course, there are cheaper burgers to be had in NYC including in midtown.

But I doubt they’re as good as the Schnipper’s.

By the way, the shakes at Schnipper’s are amazing too.

If there’s anything I don’t like about Schnipper’s, it’s their pricing and the mediocre service.

When I went to get a refill of water, the girl cleaning the area was upset to be disturbed. Somebody, please tell the proletariat that customers pay their wages.

Also, charging $6 for a shake is kinda like the Marwadi rate of interest in small Indian villages and towns.

Schnipper’s midtown Manhattan branch is located opposite the Port Authority bus and subway stations.

    Ha ha ha, this post reminds me of a little-known American film, Harold and Kumar at the White Castle. 🙂 Btw, those photos of Burgers make me really hungry 🙂 Responds:

    I haven’t been to White Castle in a long time.

    Will go there soon and post a review with a dedication to you. 😉

    But I remember the White Castle burgers being smaller.

    I remember the Agneepath review. 🙂

    Hey, aswin kini, good to see you back..

    Was your account deleted too earlier? 😉 mine was..!! responds:

    Our records show that your deletion complaint was forwarded to the appropriate authorities for due action on the file.

    A reply was received within the stipulated 14-day period as per policy and appended to your file.

    The response from Old SI blamed deletion of your account and many others on the high alcohol content in Gilbey’s Gin acquired from a neighborhood Patel liquor store. Since Patels hail from Modi’s Gujarat, Hindutva is also a suspect in the matter of your alleged account deletion.

    If this response is not satisfactory, you have 14-days to make a fresh complaint by attaching a fee of $14.95 + $2.95 toward silly complaint disposal fee.

    We have recently introduced a Tatkal scheme where our ‘cloud’ representative will be glad to look at your account deletion complaint within 24-hours for an additional fee of only $39.95. All complaints and payments are final and cannot be refunded or exchanged under any circumstance!

    If you’d like to speak with a Customer Service Representative, press the ‘delete’ key twice on your keyboard followed by the ‘backspace’ key thrice.

    If you’re using a Mac, press the ‘fn’ and ‘delete’ keys simultaneously twice followed by the ‘delete’ key thrice (on a Mac, the ‘delete’ key is actually the ‘backspace’ key).

    All keystrokes may be monitored and recorded for quality and training purposes.

    @BoopalanJ 🙂 Lol and ROFL 🙂

    So, SI deleted your account, is it? 😉 responds:

    Since the matter is under investigation by higher authorities in our ‘cloud’ department, we cannot disclose more details at this time.

    Talking of hamburgers, i remember a funny scene from Michael Douglas starrer Falling down… Responds:

    Nice one. Hilarious!

    We’ll review Falling Down soon.

    Michael Douglas is usually a class act.
