Bigger Isn’t Always Better, The Cheeseburger at Jackson Hole- Queens, NY

jackson holeThe Michael W Travels family are big fans of burgers. Whether it be at home or when traveling, we always try to taste the best ones out there.

Living in Brooklyn, NY gives us close proximity to lots of great food and that definitely includes great burgers!

There are tons of classic NYC burgers and one of my favorites is served at Peter Luger’s. Other great classics could be found at the Burger Joint and Corner Bistro as well as at various other places. Continue reading Bigger Isn’t Always Better, The Cheeseburger at Jackson Hole- Queens, NY

Shake Shack South Korea, Just About As Good As Shacks in the US!

The Michael W Travels family loves burgers and our favorite fast-casual style burger is served at Shake Shack.

Shake Shack began as a small cart in Madison Square Park in NYC and slowly grew as a chain to what it is today. The company is now listed on the New York Stock Exchange and has a presence in 18 states and Washington, D.C. There are also international locations in 11 countries.

A Long Junk-Foodie Layover in Los Angeles

On the way to the Pacific, the Michael W Travels family had a long layover in Los Angeles. During our time we had to deal with The Most Expensive Luggage Storage Ever.

I booked our flights from JFK to LAX and LAX to NAN using points on different airlines.  We chose  to have the long layover in Los Angeles since we didn’t want to take a chance on missing our international flight.  We initially figured that it would be a good opportunity to wander around LA.

However, in LA things are really spread out, Uber rides can be pricey and traffic could be a real pain. Continue reading A Long Junk-Foodie Layover in Los Angeles

You NEED To Try The Big Macher Burger at Mile End Deli

Mile End Deli

One of my favorite foods is the hamburger. This should come as no surprise considering how many burger reviews I’ve written here at Michael W Travels.

What I love about burgers is that they can come in so many different varieties. The bun, meat, cheese and other topping all can vary, making for lots of unique kinds of burgers!

You wouldn’t expect to find an amazing burger at a Jewish- style deli, but you can get a really great burger at Mile End Deli in Brooklyn, NY. Continue reading You NEED To Try The Big Macher Burger at Mile End Deli

Pass on the Steak, Head to Peter Luger For Their Amazing Burger

IMG_0379

OK, so if you’re making a special trip to Peter Luger, I know you’ll most likely want to try their famous steak (and I don’t blame you) but hear me out on this one…

Peter Luger is considered by many to be the best steakhouse in New York City. If you want to get in, odds are pretty high that you’ll need a reservation which needs to be made a month in advance.

I’ve had steak at Peter Luger and it is really good but it’s also really pricey. If you ask me, a better option for visiting this historic restaurant is to head over during the day to give their awesome burger (available until 3:45pm) a try. Continue reading Pass on the Steak, Head to Peter Luger For Their Amazing Burger

The Most Interesting Priority Pass Lounge I’ve Visited

The Michael W Travels family recently got back from an awesome little trip to Ireland.

While Dublin is usually a quick flight from NYC, we flew on connecting flights each way. A small inconvenience is worth it to save on the cost of a flight, if you ask me…

During our travels we got to visit a Priority Pass lounge in three airports. Two of the lounges were solid offering food, snacks, drinks and a place to relax.

The other Priority Pass lounge was quite different and possibly the most interesting one that I’ve ever visited. Continue reading The Most Interesting Priority Pass Lounge I’ve Visited

Love Airplanes? Check Out El Avion Restaurant in Costa Rica

el avionOver the winter break, Kim, Lucas, Theo and I headed to Costa Rica. This would be Theo’s first international trip at just under four months old (and third time flying).

Kim and I expected to do some outdoorsy activities like hiking, spotting wildlife, spending a little time on the beach and other things along those lines. However, we never expected to come across such an interesting place as El Avion. Continue reading Love Airplanes? Check Out El Avion Restaurant in Costa Rica
