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

Delish burgers and nice friendly staff. Great little spot for a bite too eat, especially if you've just hopped off the Circle Line ferry tour, which is moments away.

We visited as 2 couples looking for some proper American burgers to chow down on after a hectic day shopping in the Big Apple. After reading reviews on trip advisor we decided on Kings of Kobe, a small but comfortable eatery. Menu was amazing! Build...your own burger or choose from one off the menu or get yourself a hotdog. Myself and my wife went for the 1/2lb build your own burger and a large battered fries between us and it's safe to say we weren't disappointed. Really good quality ingredients and the taste was fantastic. If anyone is looking for maximum taste then they have to visit this place!More

I found this place on trip advisor and knew I had to try it. It was only a few blocks from where we were staying which was a bonus and just off times square. The first thing you notice is the size of the shop....It's so small but they say good things come in small packages and that is definitely true of Kings of Kobe. I did the build a burger so it was exactly how I wanted it. It was the best burger I've had. EVER. Perfectly cooked and huge. We also got the battered fries, which were incredible. The service was great and really friendly. I would definitely recommend.More

Whilst walking up 9th Avenue I fancied a fast burger and so I dropped into 'Kings of Kobe'. This is a small, narrow, place that specialises in Hot Dogs and Kobe Burgers. It has a few tables down one side and a counter with mirrored...wall and high stalls down the other. The menu is not extensive but there are some nice gourmet burger options, along with the usual fries, shakes, etc. I just had the 'Duke of Lux' burger that was both juicy and very tasty, a darn god burger! Prices are a bit on the high side with my burger costing US$17.37 with no drink and no sides. It was tasty though.More

We came across this burger place after being at the piers for the dog show. Being that it is a bit hard to grab a cab, we walked into Hell’s Kitchen and grabbed a bite to eat. I had the Hawaiian burger but I took...off the pineapple. We just got the battered fries and shared them. It was really good and really fresh. We were the only ones in there so I can see when busy it couple be pretty packed. It is a pretty small place, but I do recommend.More

I’ve been searching..without much luck..fir a great burger. Cooked just right. Juicy but not a runny mess. And delicious. And I found my search was over when I got my burger from Kings of Kobe. The place is small, with a friendly staff and a...very comfortable atmosphere to enjoy your burger..and fries..and onion rings.More

If you are in midtown Manhattan and hankering for a good burger, you can’t go wrong at King of Kobe. Many varieties of burgers, and hot dogs, to choose from. Place your order at the counter, let them know how you like it cooked, and...a few minutes later, you have heaven on a plate. Make sure to add some of their delicious fries or onion rings, which are crunchy and delicious. Small neighborhood place and good service.More

It is a nice place with honest burgers. The price is slightly above the average, but you definitely get more. Worth a visit but nothing special.
