“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Really, really great burgers. We had to wait for about 40 minutes to get a table, but we waited in the bar and drank the best bloody Mary's ever!
The staff is friendly, the waiter did not even write our order down, yet he did not have to ask us who had order what when serving the food. The original burger was great, so was the union rings, and it is not pricey at all. Just be prepared for a rather noisy environment.

“When in New York you have to have a Burger......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

5 Napkins is lively, busy and what I would like to think of as a American Burger restaurant in the traditional style. We happened across it and what a find it was with delicious food, Burger of course, friendly staff and everything we wanted from our meal. Great place to eat in New York I will return again.
