Although the original 70s-era Queens diner is closed, Jackson Hole’s Manhattan locations are still slinging this popular burger. The diner was one of the first to specialize in the metal-dome style of burger, in which thick patties are cooked under a metal bowl to ensure even cooking. Both the Murray Hill restaurant at 521 Third Avenue and the Upper East Side outpost at 232 East 64th Street are currently offering delivery and takeout via Seamless, Grubhub, delivery.com, and Postmates. Orders can also be placed via phone at 212-679-3264 for the Murray Hill location, and 212-371-7187 for the UES.
