Went here looking for a tasty burger. When we walked in the staff were actually ASLEEP. Then ordered coke and got Pepsi, ordered still water and got sparkling water. Would not recommend this place

This place has the best hotdogs. The mango and chili dogs are fantastic and massive. One hotdog is enough for a grown adult man. SOOOO GOOD!

Terrible service when no one in restaurant . Very expensive for what it was , wrong order after repeating it and then being overcharged by someone else’s orders being added to ours - this was then removed but no other compensation . Waitress was quite...rude and deliberately ignoring us when trying to get attention .More

Never ever again. Steak was not a Steak, it was fat with steak flavors. Fries where ok. Ambiente nothing special. Sorry but my personal opinion is never again. But it's up to you ...

Stopped off here before going on a dusk boat tour and we were very glad that we did. Really tasty burgers, the DIY burger option was really great. Would absolutely go here again, really attentive service too!

While in NYC to see an afternoon play at the American Airlines' Roundabout Theater, my friend and I stopped in to eat lunch here. We each had an over sized wagyu burger. She had the Queen's Rule and I had the King of Lux. We...also tried the onion rings and the French fries. Even though we were quite full, we shared the Drunkin Donut Holes for dessert. OMG!!! The sugar covered donut holes were freshly made and served warm with a delicious Kahlua-caramel dipping sauce!! It was absolutely scrumptious!! I never had anything quite like it..so much so that I am still savoring it in my mind! I highly recommend that you leave room for dessert!More

This is a neat place near the circle line. Upscale burgers and dogs with a full bar and a nice happy hour. Service is friendly and prices are reasonable for NYC. Fine for families. Only downside is that it is all the way over to...the river on the west side, otherwise a sure betMore

Had been following on Instagram for a while and we walked a fair bit in the cold to get there but it was absolutely worth it! The burgers are epic, and they are giant too! Service was friendly and super helpful. Our server was attentive...and just overall lovely. And it was reasonably priced too! Absolutely would recommend going out of the way for this place!More

We stopped here after the circle line city lights cruise for something to eat. The service was excellent. The food delicious - loads of topping on burgers and hot dogs, and the fries were amazing. Also very reasonably priced compared to the meals we had...closer to Times Square. Highly recommend.More

Forget about Minetta Tavern, Spotted Pig, Burger Joint, or any other “Shake Shack” american pattie, I’ve tried pretty much +15 burgers spots in Manhattan and can say Kings of Kobe is definitely one of the top 5 if not the best burger in the city....If you like juicy burger and done the way it should be done (medium rare!) with a lot of pickles you should definitely try the Standard Burger. The brioche bun as being one of the most important component in the burger is delicious and provides the perfect structure for the juicy wagyu burger there. I’ve also tried other burgers, even the vegan with GF buns and they are also of high quality, although If you’re not vegetarian/vegan and want to go all-in for your first visit you should definitely try the standard burger!More

Sunday late lunch, delicious half pound burgers great combination of items to put on top. Ice cold draft beer. The winner was the sautéed string beans with bacon ranch Dipping sauce. Truffle fries where very good and the red onion, onion rings where super tasty....The food is great , worth a stop, Hard to hear conversation at the table music is too loud.More
