    ^ The Ghostface Killer Burger. 

    Left Bank Burger Bar is located a few blocks from the Grove Street PATH station for easy access from NYC or Hoboken. There’s outside seating a very casual, burger-y interior with full bar. You should go because this burger rules everything around me C.B.R.E.A.M. {Sorry, had to.} Here’s what’s inside this mama…

    11 dollar burger ya’ll. It’s an espresso rubbed patty {and a good sized, grass fed, hand patted patty at that}, ghost pepper jam {omg}, smoked gouda {also #fave}, sweet potato-bacon tots, red onion, and mustard BBQ sauce. So worth it.

    Pause for a moment on the sweet potato-bacon tot topping. This isn’t like cafeteria tots. This is like one giant sweet potato-bacon tot patty right on top of the beef patty so every single bite has a lil’ crispy sweet magic in it. These people are geniuses.

    As for sides, you must go with the onion rings. As you can see,we tried a mix of rings & sweet potato fries…but the rings {you get about 5 GIANT ones} are really special. Big, juicy onions inside perfectly breaded crispiness. Omg.

    Now, I went on about the “Ghostface Killer”, but these guys have several burger compilations like the veggie “Garden State” {another go-to}, the “Mac Daddy” {mac & cheese make you wanna…}, and the “Cyprus Hill” {toss that lamb patty in the frying pan}. They have an unlimited amount of options, so truly, the sky is the limit. You can also build your own from a delectable selection of toppings, cheeses, and patties. Here’s the full menu to get your wheels turning. Insane in the brain.
