Everyone knows how hard it is for a restaurant to survive in New York, and since Primeburger has been around since 1938, I figured it must be indestructible – and totally delicious. Boy was I wrong.
My first burger at Primeburger was pretty good. Good enough that I ordered a second one. (The burgers at Primeburger are quite small, I swear.) However, the meat in the second burger tasted rather fishy, putting me off to the whole experience. As we had to pay extra for fries and supplement our first burger, lunch ended up costing far more than it should have. And a bigger price tag makes everything taste a bit less "prime."
