We weren’t expecting their great menu and fine cocktail selections but we enjoyed both! The fresh burgers were delicious and microbrewed beer awesome. Can’t wait to go back.

Everything was pretty average. Restaurant was packed. Portions were very large and there is a limited choice on the menu. Despite this the burgers were nice, just nothing special.

We received prompt, friendly service from Ashley at the Hell’s Kitchen location. The bacon cheddar burger was a winner as were the hand cut, crispy, sweet potato fries. Fun to people watch at a window booth!

Took a walk looking for dinner and found 5 Napkin Burger. Who doesn’t like a burger? The burger did not disappoint and the rhubarb cocktail was AMAZING. Fun corner location allows for nice people watching too.

What would happen if we took the burger we loved and built a restaurant around it? Usually, it’s done the other way around: come up with an idea, create the menu, build the restaurant. Well, not this time! We had the burger – the original 5 Napkin Burger – 10oz of 100% all natural Angus chuck from Aspen Ridge, griddled to desired temperature, topped with gruyere cheese, caramelized onions and rosemary aioli on a soft potato roll. This is the burger, Chef Andy’s burger. Then, and now, it remains our guide. We strive to elevate the burger experience to its top shelf – because you & your burger deserve better. While other “burger joints” serve their burgers in wax paper, or in a cardboard box, 5 Napkin Burger holds itself to a higher standard. Burgers this great deserve to be served stacked high on a real plate, at a table with a proper setting, & with a great glass of wine or a craft beer. A 5 Napkin Burger could never be eaten standing up. Knife & fork is optional – 5 Napkins required.
