I was recommended to take one of the new special sandwiches, and I'm glad I followed the server's advice. It was super tasty and I enjoyed my lunch at the bar while watching the general busy-ness in the kitchen. It took a while until I got my food, but there was a lot going on, and I was told it...

We when for a quick lunch with my niece and the wait time to be seated was not a problem. But the server gave the burgers that we order to another table that just arrived then we had to wait again so they can remake our order. The total of waited time was more than 35 minutes honestly what a... More

Went there lunch time. I ordered their classic hamburger and the Banana Strawberry Shake. Hamburger was ok but next time I prefer my hamburger at Burger King. The shake was perfect to me.

I know it is only burgers and fries, but this was one of the tastiest meals we had in New York, and beat Shake Shack hands down. We wanted a quick munch whilst shopping and glad we chose here instead of one of the food places in the food court. The burger was of high quality and very nice indeed.... More

This gives you the Old Fashion diner like the one on Happy Days. Large selection of burgers and the shakes are great. Usually a very long line to sit down and eat

The 60's devoration is beautiful. The dishes looks delicious. I've ordered an original burger with fries. The burger was juicy and the fries were crispy. Delicious. I also recommend theis shake. I think it isnt the cheapest place to eat at the mall but it worths every cent.

My wife and I had lunch here and we both enjoyed it. We loved the decor and our food was served quickly. Found the burgers to be very tasty, one with salad and the other with fries. I had an Oreo shake with Reece's, it was delicious and a large serving. Reasonably priced and no hesitation in recommending.
