Junior's cheesecake is a Brooklyn staple. If you love cheesecake, then know that Junior's servings (including taste and portion size) are absolutely DIVINE!!

I was told they had the best cheesecake in NYC and had high hopes when going in for a bite. But to me, it was just an average cheesecake and there was nothing special about it. However, I thought the place was very family friendly and retro with plenty of helpful staff.

Like any decent NY diner, Junior's has a.menu with great variety, but no.real.specialties (other than the desserts, especially cheesecake). So adjust your expectations an dknow that you are visiting this legend becaus eit is legendary, not because the food is anything special.

If you love a L.E.O (Lox Egg Onion), then Junior's has that among a ton of other very large portioned dishes. They call it a NEO though for Nova (Lox) Egg Onion. Enjoy!

I live in Brooklyn and for many, many years, this used to be the place we would go for New Years' eve. Even though we usually only went once a year, the wait staff were such old-timer/regulars, that they greeted us as old friends when we came. We got free noisemakers and hats, and enjoyed the atmosphere. The crowd resembled... More

Definitely worth a visit if you're in Brooklyn, tried the Black Forest and the Plain cheesecake, both delicious but very filling.

We went to Junior's last year and wanted to try the famous cheese cake, the food generally very good and very large plates. Cheesecake amazing! If we go back to New York I'm sure we go to Junior's.
