You can get a couple cheeseburgers at McDonald's for less than three bucks, but if that option is in play, you probably DNGAF about this list. So let's set some standards (for example, no frozen meat). It's pretty tough to get a legitimate burger for less than $3, but you can get a very good slider at this subterranean spot in the thick of St. Mark's cheap-eats strip. Anyone familiar with the gospel of White Manna will see the Jersey influence—the hand-formed mini patties are smashed on the griddle with a heap of onions, then slipped into a soft, squishy bun with a cloak of American cheese. The only problem is that it's near impossible to eat just one.
