Joy Burger Bar Restaurant Review

: A cheery destination for burger lovers in an increasingly foodie section of upper Lexington Avenue, Joy Burger Bar serves up juicy three-ounce Munch, five-ounce Midi, or eight-ounce Maxi burgers. You can customize the burgers with your choice of homemade sauces and toppings like chimichurri sauce, spicy mango chutney, olive tapenade or portobello mushrooms. No burger is complete without one of Joy Burger’s homemade sides. Try the batatas, sweet potatoes served with maple syrup. The room feels like a vintage soda shop with trays, chairs and tables right out of the film “Grease.” Confirm the notion with a black and white shake.
