I've eaten hamburgers all over the world. I used to work and cook 'gourmet' hamburgers for several years when I was younger. So I am always on the lookout for a great burger. Without doubt, Island Burgers makes the best burgers I have ever tasted. Pure and simple. All ingredients are fresh, including the meat, they don't use 'filler' and... More

Excellent Burgers, my wife and I love going to burger bars and this one just made it into our top 5. I had the bourbon burger! Small place, really feels like personalized service. The only thing is that I asked for bbq sauce and they wanted to charge $1.50 for it. I think the price of the burger should include... More

Went to Island Burgers in Hells Kitchen. Build a burger worked well and they were cooked to order as specified. Fries came in a little tin bucket and the drinks were cans with glass jars with handles provided with ice for them to be put into. Staff were attentive and the surroundings if a little cramped quite pleasant. Restroom at... More

Friendly service and nice atmosphere. We went for the concept were you put your own burger together. You choose everything from the type of meat to the toppings. My burger turned to be really good, and the chocolate shake I had with it was excellent! The fries were also really good! The only thing a bit dull was my bread.... More

I find this amazing place searching the internet before our first trip to NYC. We went here for dinner me and my friend. It was one of the best burgers in my life. A real genuine feeling about the restaurant and the other customers. Great small place. I will definitely come back on my next visit in town.

Small place with fantastic burgers! Highly recommend. We also ordered the cheese fries and they were good as well. But the cheeseburger is excellent.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
