On Memorial Day we made the unfortunate decision to go to Coney Island to celebrate. As good as it was for our egos (we were better than everyone there) unfortunately the overall taste that it left with us was sour. We decided to cleanse that taste with the offerings of Subsational in Brooklyn.

If you haven’t been here in over a year then you would be in for a surprise as they have done a total renovation on the place. They also made some adjustments to the menu. We assume this was because of the entrance of Carlos and Gabby’s to the market – which has forced most Kosher restaurants to start acting like real restaurants.

My constant at a hamburger shop is the Pastrami burger, so naturally I ordered it.  I also ordered the buffalo wings chicken fingers.

One look at the buffalo wings and we returned them. The chickens must have been starved and anorexic because there was no sign of any kind of hormones – they were little and looked unapetizing.  We went to return these with the manager.    Naturally, he put up a fight “sorry, you should know what you are ordering” but after a few of my “can’t you think outside of the box?” and “don’t you guys know how to do customer service” and a “you are going to lose a customer” he quickly realized it was time to offer us a replacement item.  Enter the chicken fingers.

They were good considering they were made exactly how C&G’s does theirs with corn flakes.  Maybe they all come from the distributor like this?  Does anyone know?

Now it was time for the main event – the pastrami burger.  Although the meat quality was bad the pastrami on top creates the most amazing/juicy flavor.   It was quite messy (it fell apart by the end, see how many napkins I used below), it was tasty and I would def recommend it if you want a good old fashioned not good for you good tasting hamburger.

We got the spicy fries as a side, quite expensive for $4.99 (how does Mcdonalds sell fries for 99 cents??) But they were on par.

We didn’t order anything from the Mexican side of their menu but will definitely have a fiesta the next time we eat there.

If u want a guaranteed fast food meal with a solid taste, I would definitely recommend checking out Subsational.

UPDATED: I had had originally given them 4 stars but meant to give them three, thanks Steven!

    Anorexic buffalo wings and “bad quality” meat for the pastrami burger, and you still give it 4 out of 5 stars? I think you need to raise your standards.

    Thanks for pointing that out to me! I meant to give them a 3!

    Just to let you know – chicken fingers were invented and introduced by Subsational 12 y ago! and somewhat copied by Others newcomers in the recent years. They still have the most delicious recipe.
