Worth the wait. Iconic place - even locals queue up to go. The top line burger gets all the reviews but the French fries are the real attraction as are the servers - great insider view into NYC.

We went here after we saw a TV show in Norway recommended it. One word WOW. I thought in advance “how good can a burger really be?” And we all (both couples)agreed it was by far the best we have ever eaten.

Very nice restaurant. Nice ambience. High quality burgers and, above all, I finally tasted the Roasted Bone Marrow ... a real specialty. Good service. Remember to book. Recommended

Wonderful place to have a drink and come in from the cold! The bar hasn't changed in years; the silhouettes still line the walls. The updated drink menu is wonderful and the bar tenders aren't stingy with their pours. They have an eclectic menu if...More

Many of my friends have told me to come to Minetta Tavern as it is the best burger in NYC. My wife and I each shared the so called famous burger along with a cheeseburger. I could list several other restaurants that have better burgers....More

I had a very enjoyable meal with my family here. The decor of this restaurant is really cool and the wait staff are super competent. The food is above average taste, but nothing super special. The prices are very reasonable. I would recommend this place.

Around 2pm in the afternoon, I was hoping a great burger.. It was a huge disappointment and mistake. The black label.. $33 for a mushy burger. It was flavored by grinding fresh meat with the trimming (the useless dried part) of the dry aged steak....More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.

You need to call. I doubt the buns. And I would think their fries are like everyone else’s.
