So good!

For me, this is the best burger and fries in the USA! Tasty and good value for the money! Much better than the Shake Shack.

Amazing burgers, get the cheeseburger. Chips I would take or leave. Really casual venue/fast food. Definitely worth a visit!

We ventured in here as it was right next door to our hotel and were not too impressed. The burgers were literally dripping which made it very difficult to eat. The fries were good though. It can also get busy in here so avoid peak times.

Nice little spot. Good mix of customers from suits to hobo's which says everything. Great burgers - simple as that. For me, the best around and good value.

A little pricey and not a place to impress a business client but you can get some very tasty burgers and fries and leave feeling full and satisfied so Ive come many times.

Burgers are tasty. Fries less. I mean not so bad but not as good. Restaurant looks cheap. You better take away.

In my opinion the best Burguer and French fries that I have already eaten in my life. Absolutely incredible! Enjoy the free peanuts and all delicious flavor of the Burguer

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
