Father’s day is this Sunday, and we know it can be tricky to find a gift for your dad. But if there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that dads love a good burger! We’ve rounded up our favorite burgers in Downtown New York, including a vegan one… just in case.

Burger Inc

If your dad loves bacon as much as he loves burgers, this one is for him. The $$$ burger at Burger Inc is served with Angus beef, cheese, house sauce and the biggest slices of applewood smoked bacon. The sweet and smoky bacon and the spicy sauce make this burger unlike any other burger you’ve had before. Your dad will love it.

Ruby’s

Australians sure know how to put together a good burger, and Ruby’s burger won’t weigh you down. The Whaleys burger is served on Panini bread with tomato, lettuce, beet, pineapple and a fried egg. The pineapple and beet make the burger refreshing, and the Panini makes a nice change to your typical brioche bun. This one is perfect if you don’t want something too heavy.

JG Melon

Sometimes all you want is a good old classic burger without all the crazy toppings and sauces. JG Melon brings it back to basics with simple ingredients: a beef patty, pickles, raw onion, pickles, lettuce and tomato. Bacon and cheese are available to add on, but that’s about it. And sometimes, that’s all you need.

Virginia’s

Burgers aren’t limited to lunch or dinner, and what better way to start Father’s day with a burger for brunch? Just so you know, the egg on top makes it perfectly acceptable to eat a burger as breakfast food. Virginia’s burger is served with cabot cheddar, a sweet onion marmalade, bacon and egg — and is most definitely worth getting out of bed for.

By CHLOE.

If your dad is vegan or vegetarian, by CHLOE. has you covered. The guac burger consists of black beans, quinoa and sweet potato, but it tastes just as good as the real deal. The toppings give the burger a little Mexican twist, including a generous amount of guacamole, crunchy tortilla strips and chipotle aioli. Even meat lovers are known to love this one (don’t worry, we won’t tell).
