5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Best burger we have had in a very long time. If not the best. Very reasonable price, huge portions, quick service, can't go wrong

“Best Burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Best burgers around, just do not order too many fries, one order and they fill the bag full. The burgers are double so if you want a single better get the small order.

“Almost the best hamburguers in NY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I say almost as we loved also Shake Shack and we had family discussions over it. Burgers are great and good price. Chips are different from other places and although good I'd better regular ones. The ambiance is really good and you can see the kitchen. We loved the place

“Fast, loud and great burgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Looks like a cheap place but be surprised at the great food and value. Easy to order menu where "the works" is included in "standard" and "special" - anything you ever thought you'd really want on a burger! Standard order includes two hamburger patties, small "only" one ... Full meal with fries and large dring approx $15 but worth it. Loud place so not for conversation or long stays, probably intended.

“Burger Joint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

There are not many Hamburger restaurants in New York like there are in Texas. Five Guys is the only one we say that wasn't a national chain.

The burgers are huge and service is quick. Burgers New York style with mushroom and toppings like that.
