We were looking for good buffalo wings and went to this place after reading the reviews. The wings are nice and juicy and sauce is good too. We had to wait for a while as this place was totally packed, but it was definitely worth the wait !

People mostly come for the burgers and the wings. This is one of my all-time favorite burgers - high quality meat and grilled so it has a nice char. Only order this if you are hungry and like meat because you will get your fill! Basic, diner decor and it can get crowded and boisterous.

The chicken wings tasted fresh, crisp and juicy. Did not appreciate the service at all. Our waiter was disinterested and therefore forgot everything. Brought us a dish we didn't order and forgot the things we did ask for. Attitude and execution was sloppy. I would be ashamed if I owned this business and had staff like that. Such a shame... More

Ordered a hamburger with Swiss, bacon, lettuce and tomato and nothing was missing when I got the burger. Unfortunately they had grilled the burger to death. I usually order well done, but went for medium well for once. The burger tasted of grill and not the good type of grill taste. And the taste that lingered after each bite was... More

I don't get to Brooklyn often but when I do I head to Bonnie's for lunch. It's not a go-to place for dieters... as even the infrequent meat eater can't help but be tempted by their burgers. Large, juicy, outrageously delicious and definitely the star of the show. They offer veggie burgers for non-meat eaters too. And for whichever you... More

My husband and I used to go to Bonnie's regularly when we lived in the neighborhood. Our running joke was that the fries were laced with crack. They're certainly laced or magic-fairy-dusted with something, because they're incredible. The buffalo wings are also the best I've had (I'm not usually a fan). Since the owners are from Buffalo, maybe they know... More

I have never been a fan of wings. Being Australian it is not a big deal here and often seen a cheap way to eat. My wife and I were walking around Brooklyn one evening looking for a feed and just liked the look of Bonnie’s so we went in to dine. We also liked the look of a plate... More

Walked in on random. Just went with the good smell and figured this would be the spot. The place is really small and personally felt a bit shabby. Was seated close to the wall which gave me a good, detailed look into how they clean the place. The burger was big and good, but for some reason did not please... More

This is a great place to grab a consistently good burger, wings or a sandwich. It's a little small and a tight fit so maybe not a great place to go with a big group or with children but otherwise excellent.

Thank theitrain
