Positive Reinforcement, Burgers and Shakes at Blue Collar

There's this newish burger place on the South side of Williamsburg.

Inside, it looks like an old fashioned diner.

It serves deliciously thick milkshakes in chocolate, vanilla, cookies and cream and peanut butter flavors.

The peanut butter version makes me feel like I am having a heart attack while I am drinking it.
(It is so good.)

Stickers remind you of what kind of job you are doing.
It'll make you feel good about yourself.

The burgers mildly resemble Shake Shack (minus the wrinkly, crumpled bun),

with its potato bun and thin, seared patty.

It's not as tasty though (the Shake Shack salt-crust is a differentiator), but this burger can amply hit the spot if you refuse to cross the borough and wait in a queue.

Han's Nonsensical Rating: The burger is passable (as in, I'd pass on it), but I will gladly clog my arteries with their milkshakes.
