What do you get when you take a good burger place like Dumont Burger and remove the hipsters? A vacuum of mediocrity devoid of atmosphere (and customers for that mater) with decent burgers that cost ½ as much. Ok so the burgers were good, but this place just tries to go too far. Their tag line is “Beefing up hipsters”!!! WTF? I guess it’s so stupid, it’s cool? Yeah I know, Silver is the new gold, chuck Norris is the new Unicorn and empanada is the new Chuck Norris. Confused? See video below…
Anyways, tagline aside I think this place could actually work if they took away the frat house plasma screens, dimmed the lighting a bit and had some decent music. Really, the food is not bad and the prices are decent for this area of town. Alas, WilliamsBurger may never be the new Dumont Burger, but hey someone’s gotta try right?
