Fast Food in Brooklyn: Brooklyn Heights, Downtown Brooklyn & Dumbo

Danny Meyer's feel-good fast-food empire has taken New York (and many other cities) by storm, earning admirers for its tasty 100% Angus beef burgers, perfect french fries and rich, creamy milkshakes (plus beer and wine), all offered at fair prices. Bonus points for paying decent wages to staff and building with sustainable materials, plus recycling efforts and charitable work.

There are several other Brooklyn locations, including one across from Barclays Center.
