Carnegie John’s Chicken Kebab Sandwich

May 29, 2008

Carnegie John’s cheeseburger is delicious. It’s griddled, grilled, and griddled again before being adorned with American cheese, lettuce, and tomato and then sandwiched in a fluffy, white bun.  The Chicken Kebab sandwich ($4.50) is equally simple but not nearly as delicious.

Chunks of grilled marinated chicken tasting faintly of lemon are packed loosely into a ordinary griddled pita before being covered with shredded lettuce, two slices of tomato, sliced white onion, and a light and creamy tatziki sauce.  It was filling and cheap, both core Carnegie John values, but it didn’t hit the spot the way the cheeseburger does.

Carnegie John’s $4 Cheeseburger: Grilled & Griddled, It’s the Best of Both Worlds

April 23, 2008

Charcoal broiled Cheeseburgers remind me that summer grilling is on the way. There are few better thoughts.

This is the $4 cheeseburger from Carnegie John’s street cart on 56th near 7th Avenue and it’s delicious. First it’s griddled, then charcoal-grilled, then put back on the griddle before being covered in American cheese, shredded lettuce, and tomato. It’s a two-hand burger and it’s only $4. Go pick one up and eat it outside. Read on for Carnegie John’s other go-to option for a cheap and tasty lunch…

Carnegie John’s Street Cart Burger: Backyard BBQ flavor in Midtown

November 16, 2007

The delicious food porn from the Vendy Awards has melted my skepticism for street food like a Mister Softee cone on an August day. As a result, I decided to test out NY Mag’s claim that “Carnegie John” Antoniou’s $4 cheeseburger is better than that of the Burger Joint.
