This is a hidden gem on Lexington Ave. Had the basic burger with jalapeños added. Outstanding. The chipotle mayo is ridiculous with the sweet potato fries. The server was friendly and the wait time was minimal. I wish I had more time in the city on this trip as I would be back at least once if not more. Be... More

My partner and I stopped by on our first night in New York. We just wanted something quick and fairly cheap. This place really ticked the boxes. Both our burgers were fantastic, really tasty and a good size too (my partner struggled to eat all hers!). We also shared a side of sweet potato fries which came as a huge... More

This was a great small restaurant in mid-town around the corner from my hotel at St.Giles for a quick burger and fries. I love trying the Chocolate soda that they had on their menu. The service was quick and staff was very friendly.

Many of my friends speak very highly of this place and so i decided to check it out. When i went in, I was impressed with the old school menu. I was expecting a really good outcome. I was even more impressed when I saw that they had Bosco chocolate soda at their soda fountain. That's basically soda that is... More

I stopped here with a co worker for lunch. The food came fast and there were different kinds of burgers to choose from. They Smokehouse burger was really good.

Reasonably priced burger joint with very good food and very nice service. I had the steak burger with spinach...delicious! And the cajun fries on the side...spicy! Highly recommended.

Myself and my family ate here twice while visiting New York. Honestly they are the best burgers we have EVER had. Even my son (age 7) who is quite a fussy eater adored them.

We had the two special burgers which were really tasty. The sweet potato fries and regular fries were alright. The onion rings were great! It was empty in here at about 7:30pm and the guy on the counter was rude and unhelpful. Wasn't just a tourist thing either as he treated the local exactly the same whilst we were waiting... More

I don't understand the negative reviews this place gets. I love burgers. When I'm in NYC, which for the last few years has averaged once a year, I go there often -- as in two or three times a week. Fortunately, the place I stay is just around the corner. They have a great burger. I always get the same... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
