About

Burger Heights

Established in 2014, Burger Heights has quickly become a New York neighborhood favorite for a classic meal. Burgers, fries and milkshakes are served with a focus on quality in a fast casual setting. There is a touch of fine-dining to Burger Heights - from the top quality 100% beef, handmade toppings to the rustic chic decor of the restaurant.

The Burger Heights menu reflects the neighborhood's ethnic and culinary diversity and geography. American and Latino ingredients are combined with new flavors on burgers named after major New York City avenues. To date, there are 2 Burger Heights locations serving the New York neighborhood of Washington Heights.

Here at Burger Heights, we’ve elevated the fast food experience, bringing together the freshest ingredients in unique combinations for irresistible burgers, dogs, and more. 

These aren’t your basic burgers – we source our beef, turkey and chicken from Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors with daily deliveries to ensure the highest quality. Your burger is always made to order and served on a toasted bun with farm-fresh produce. Our guacamole and signature Burger Heights sauce are all made in house. For something lighter try our veggie burgers. 

All of our shakes are made with Italian gelato for a thicker, creamier shake and come in a variety of flavors including our customer favorite Nutella®. 

Whether you order in person or online, your burger is made exactly the way you want it, arriving hot, fresh, and tasty every time.

Mission

The Burger Heights mission is to bring fast casual dining - with a focus on quality over quantity - to neighborhoods that are underserved by the NYC restaurant trade, starting with our first location in Washington Heights.

We wouldn’t be Burger Heights without an excellent burger, so we turned to Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors as our sole beef, turkey, and lamb supplier, spending months refining our custom beef blend to make the taste and texture that has become our benchmark. We firmly believe that freshness makes a difference in taste, and our 100% Angus beef is delivered daily. In fact, we taste our beef every day before we open for business to ensure that the day’s delivery meets our standard. 

For our shakes, we use Italian gelato for a superior taste and healthier product that we know you’ll love. Gelato has less sugar and a lower fat content than ice cream, which means our shakes are denser, creamier, and healthier for you. 

We want to thank all of our customers for their incredible support in this, our first year of business.
