Perry, the man behind New York Street Food, brings you his latest review on New York City food trucks.
We’ve tried several of the items on the Go Burger truck, but never had a Go2Burger or one of their shakes. Time to rectify that situation.

The Go2Burger is $6 and vanilla and chocolate shakes are $4 (or you can opt for a ‘Shake Shot’ for $1, which is a a nice way to get just a taste, since the full 12 oz. shake is a lot for lunch time. The ‘shots’ appear to be larger than a liquor shot).
The burger is basically a cheeseburger deluxe without the fries. It has a 100% Angus beef patty, lettuce, tomato, red onion, American cheese and Go Burger sauce.
I asked about the Go Burger sauce and was told it was made with mayo, ketchup and capers. The capers give a little umami to the sauce, but it’s still basically a “special sauce” type condiment.
The burger patty wasn’t that big, but it was decent. You can double the meat for $3, which a couple of people on line did.
All the ingredients in the lunch, the lettuce, tomato and red onion, were fresh and good quality. The American cheese was fine, but I’m more of a cheddar guy personally.
The vanilla shake was very cold, thick and refreshing, and you could taste the vanilla. Some shakes can taste way too sweet or syrupy. Not so here.
For a burger truck, they have really good hot dogs, but we completely surprised the new menu item – a falafel sandwich (?!). Hmmm. A falafel sandwich on a burger truck. Gonna have to see what that one’s about.
