Great food for a quick bite.

Ended up having the chicken sandwich and the cheese burger. Both were incredible. Staff were friendly, no complaints at all.

We were craving a hamburger after a week of eating New York style. The employees were the nicest this Southern Girl found in all of New York City. Friendly and talkative. Most helpful. Seemed to really enjoy their work and being around people. Such a rarity these days. Ordered a Lucky Cheddarburger and onion rings with a soda. The Meal... More

Choice of beef, turkey, grilled chicken or turkey burger. $6 Add any of six different cheeses for $1. Free lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles & jalapenos. Nice soda selection reasonably priced. Only negatives are the limited seating & the fact that all burgers are cooked medium but they are never anything but good.

Wow, the best burger that I enjoyed in New York City! I had the Lucky famous burger special. It was cooked to the right level of moistness. The flavor was out of this world! Just tangy and spicey enough to make my nose run. The strawberry shake was delicious. A definite must go to when you visit.

Great messy burger with lots of options of toppings. Their famous lucky sauce is amazing. Great to dip fries in. Overall easy place with kids that's not fancy and a good place to sit and rest while eating a good burger.

Yummy! They have so many options for the burgers to be customized, from the bun type to the interesting toppings you don't find at many fast-food joints (like mushrooms, fried egg, grilled onions, etc...), and the staff is cool. Cheap and great...perfect local spot.

After a long day of travelling from Sydney to New York, we were looking for dinner somewhere close by, and with a Vegan option. The guy serving us confirmed that the veggie burger was vegan, and we were hooked. We asked for the guys favourites, and we're given options. All 3 burgers and chips were delicious and fresh. Also they... More

After a night of bar hopping in Hell's Kitchen, this is THE PLACE for a quick bite to stave off the hunger and hangover. The burgers are juicy and the fries are always served hot. Small seating area at this location.

This was a pretty good burger at a fast-food price. It wasn't all that special, but definitely above par for the price, especially in NYC.

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.
