“More than expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

While many know Junior's of NYC for their world famous cheese cakes, we opted for dinner there, after seeing a show recently!

Nice variety of foods from Reuben sandwiches to the wonderful grilled salmon I selected, which came with fresh veggies and rice. Service was friendly, fast and helpful. Atmosphere, up and energetic into the late evening .

Murals on one wall, comfy , chat- friendly , open environment makes for a pleasant dining experience. Reservations not needed but if traveling in a group might try or expect a bit of a wait! Very enjoyable!

“Five stars for cheesecake, two stars for anything else”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Loved, loved, loved the cheesecake. Had red velvet cheesecake the first visit, and went back on our last night in NYC for the original. Generous slices, fast service, and amazing cheesecake that you will remember with joy!

However, the same cannot be said for anything else we tried on the menu. We dashed in here pre theater for a quick bite to eat - the salad I had was bland and my husband did not eat most of his club sandwiches, and pronounced them the worst he had ever eaten (they are normally his favorite meal of all time!). Generous serves, but really average.

Stick to the cheesecake and you will love it.

“Too crowded, small tables”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Food was just average. Pastrami was fair. Large menu. Very crowded, noisy, tables on top of one another. Pleasant staff.

“Great energy, terrific food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

There is nothing about Junior's but awesome. Food, vibe, selection... be prepared to wait and don't go just before curtains open for the Broadway shows if visiting the Times Sq. Location. Not my favorite potato pancake, but overall absolutely delicious. The pickles are divinity and the cheesecake speaks for itself.
