“Ask for a bite and grab a beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

They have great burgers and a huge list of beers. You will share the big table with strangers, but it's not a problem. Our table neighbors asked for a Mac'n Cheese that looked delicious! It's always crowded with smiley people.

“Good spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

This restaurant on rivington doesn't seem special, but for some reason, you feel good inside. They offer (not so) simple food, sandwiches, nibblings and a few dishes.
The window facing the street is removed during the day and you can eat and drink enjoying the quiet routine of this very nice LES street.
At night the place becomes a busy bar, to get a beer that they brew themselves.
I love this place!

“Best burger and truffle mac'n cheese in East Village / Lower East Side”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Spitzer's has my favorite burger in the neighborhood and they have my girlfriend's favorite truffle mac'n cheese. They have a huge selection of beers on tap and rarely go on waits. Great neighborhood spot!

“Great corner bar open to the street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

A great place for happy hour to sit and watch the action go by. The food looked spectacular, but we only had a glass of wine 3 out of 4 days we were there. Great service!
