Tallgrass serves grass feed burgers and let me tell you, their fire rock burger is one of the best burger i have had! Lamb burger is good if you are a big fan of goat cheese. I would highly recommend this place and would definitely come again.

Looking at it from the outside, was a bit nervous about what was coming, but the fears were completely unfounded. The place itself is modest looking on the inside, but clean and the welcome was friendly and warm. We went as a family and tried the classic burger and the fire rock burger. The quality of the burgers was exceptional,... More

Burgers shouldn't be this healthy but tallgrass does it right. Quality beef and chicken, plus a veggie option. The onion rings are to die for -- I think better than their fries. Always ask for chipotle mayo on side for dipping. Yum!

Had several burgers from here whilst on holiday in the area and they are simple, very well done and taste great. Not the cheapest burgers but well worth it for good quality hand made beef pattys and buns. Would def go back for more.

It looks like a regular eatery but the burgers are excellent, juicy and made as you order. Prices are very reasonable, too.

OK, it's a hole in the wall, but the burgers are made to order, the prices are fantastic, and the guacamole is worth going back for. If you need a quick and delicious bite in the EV, check it out.

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
