West Coasters love to tout the burger-building prowess of California drive-ins, but this Astoria fast-food spot gives them a run for their money. The addictive “double cheese”—a squishy toasted bun sandwiching two juicy patties cloaked in melted American cheese and brightened by raw onion, iceberg lettuce and tomato—is a gloriously greasy retort to Golden State smugness. A Thousand Island–like special sauce, slightly acidic, with a hint of ketchupy sweetness, drips through the whole messy package.

Having been to In & Out whenever I went to LA I was glad to find out a similar burger joint opened up in NY. Shake Shack is still the best we have but Petey's is pretty damn good. The menu is pretty much the same as In & Out. They have In & Out's secret menu items on the regular menu. I don't know if Petey's has a secret "secret" menu but that would be a great idea for them to implement. The prices are much higher then In & Out which is one of the main reasons why I couldn't five star this place. The food is damn good however and I would recommend this place to anyone. 

I got a double cheese burger with fries and a drink. The burger is huge. Much bigger then what you get at Shake Shack. It was delicious. The fries were great. I actually liked them better the In & Out's. You can get them plain or with the cajun seasoning which my friend deemed was too spicy. You can add a bunch of toppings including bacon which I certainly did. They have milkshakes but I didn't try one. Shake Shack is in the lead as far as milkshakes goes with In & Out a close second. 

The staff was really nice and even though we got there 10 minutes before closing they didn't seem to mind us sitting down to eat. Great place to grab a burger if you are missing that In & Out vibe and taste.

I'm tellin u, u have to go to Petey's Burger, u will fall in love, that's how good that burger taste like, with it's melty cheese all over that nicly cooked patty, and that lettuse was so nice tasting, god damn it, all this talk about burger's is making me hungry for Petey's. Toodles.
