Mo’s Burgers started as a street cart selling burgers and hotdogs in front of the eponymous Mo’s barber shop in the ‘90s. Since then, Mo has upgraded to an orange food truck that serves everyone in the neighborhood looking for an affordable lunch. The burgers, which cost $2.50, are thin and otherwise unremarkable, but there’s a generous condiment bar—and everything tastes better when you’re getting this much of a deal anyway. These days, Mo might not always be open when you get there, but if he is at his usual spot at Lenox Avenue between 117th and 118th Streets, stop by for freshly grilled meat and fantastic lemonade.
