George Motz Opens Hamburger America in New York City

George Motz, the burger guru extraordinaire, has been flipping patties and dishing out deliciousness for years. He has carved out a special place in American food culture and has amassed his own cult following. Hailing from the bustling streets of New York City, Motz’s love affair with food, especially burgers, started early on. Now, decades later, he’s returned to where it all began to open his first restaurant: Hamburger America.
