“Staff shows no concern or hospitality.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Staff showed not concern or hospitality. Tried to order take out as a regular and neighbor. Bartender made me wait on him then showed verbal contempt in front of other guests. It is a shame that Mother Burger is in not worth the affordable prices. Just because you offer a value does not mean you should take guests for granted.

“Uhhh YUM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This place is awesome. And tiny. There's most likely going to be a wait for a table. It's worth it. You can sit outside but no booze.

I had a bacon cheeseburger and it was rockin. Hand cut, skin on fries - also yum.

The only problem was that they don't have the frozen pink lemonade with absolute shot on the top anymore. BOO! So, I had a frozen margarita with a shot of tequila on top instead. :D

“Very very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

First night in New York and we wanted a burger, rather than go to a "standard" restaurant we tried here and weren't disappointed.
It's small so expect to wait, but the staff are friendly and burgers were worth the wait - which actually want very long.
Although they were busy we were not rushed.
Good value and worth visiting if you are near by.

“Mother...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Yes, you may find a few uber-trendies sitting about but look closely and you'll note that the local intelligentsia eats elsewhere: In short... please PASS on this one. Under cooked burgers with an over-eager staff. One star for try-zies (my sister was sick the next day). The drinks were nice but didn't make up for the queazy stomachs.

“Pass the Pepto, please!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

We sat outside after deciding the inside was a bit lack-luster with a foul/needs a good scrubbing odor. We should have taken the hint and left but we didn't. Unfortunately, I spent the next 48 hours with a case of food poisoning. Steer clear of the chili-cheese dog! My partner enjoyd his burger very much. Our waiter, Matty, was very attentive.
