Nice little spot for a burger and really good fries. Small place with lots of TV's so you can always watch the current games.

The place is small, but nice. We had a delicious cesar salad with grilled chicken and very good hamburguers! We had a very nice dinner!

Fantastic visit to BIB having read reviews on here and visiting NYC for a few days my son and I thought we’d try it. Great place, not the biggest but food, service and atmosphere were great. We had chicken tenderloins to start and then fish...burger and pulled pork sandwich and all were excellent. Would definitely recommend 100%More

The Black Iron Burger was the best burger I ever ate! It was cooked to perfection with double meat and cheese with caramelized beer onions and horseradish mayo. The Truffle fries were good and so was the service. It was wonderful!

A fantastic spot for burger enthusiasts. The burgers are great – juicy, flavorful, and cooked just right. Despite being really busy, the service is fantastic; the staff are quick and friendly. The atmosphere is buzzy and lively, perfect for a fun meal out. Don't worry...about the queues – they move pretty quickly. It's a great place for a casual, satisfying burger experience in the city. Definitely worth a visit.More

Did extensive research on the place on T/A before going there. Thanks to all the reviewers for their views. We walked in hungry and ready to eat. We had no reservations, but the hostess was able to seat us immediately despite the place looking fairly...full, thanks to a number of Rangers fans in the area that evening. Service was prompt and the server excellent. In our group of four, we ordered 2 Masterpiece burgers, 1 Cod Fish Battered burger, and 1 Smoked Pulled Pork sandwich. One of the consumers of the Masterpiece said it was the best burger they had ever eaten while the other consumer (yours truly) found it average at best. I asked for medium rare but felt like there was no pink at all -- felt more like medium well. The burger didn't feel juicy. And there was this annoying overpowering sweet taste from the caramelized onions, which on hindsight, I should have avoided. Frankly, for a place that prides itself on its burgers, it was disappointing for a burger afficionado such as myself. The reviews on the Cod Fish burger pulled pork sandwich were favorable. The ambiance was nice overall with a couple of issues. The tables were packed a little too close together -- conversations from neighboring tables spilled over obtrusively. Secondly, it was difficult even for skinny people to get in and out of their seats without pushing against the neighboring table and risk spilling something. Secondly, it was a little too dark where we were seated. In fact, we had to use our phone flashlight to even read the menu. Borderline 3-star experience upgraded to 4 stars because of excellent staff and quick seating.More

Great dinner for burgers and beer! The burgers were spot on. Doneness of the meat was as requested. Bun to meat to topping ratio was perfect. Quality of all components were great. And the sides were well executed. Nice selection of beer, as well.

My wife and I were looking for a moderately priced, comfortable burger/bar restaurant in the Times Square neighborhood. We found just the spot here. Very bread priced, 5oz Epic burger was delicious and priced right. My wife built a burger which was just what she...wanted. We kept it simple, no fries (there were a few just right onion rings on my burger). Total including tax was $31 very inexpensive for the area). Clean restrooms and quick friendly service.More

The music was great, the service was friendly, even though they were clearly rushed off their feet, and the burger was to die for. Delicious. I could eat it every evening.

As a couple of other people have replied, I don't think reservations are taken. They seat you as table space opens up.
