Ordered a cheeseburger with onions. The oil was just oozing down the burger. I couldn't finish my food. Who ever cooked the burger fried the onions in the deep fat fryer and placed it on my burger.

Staff rarely made eye contact. They never came by to ask how the food was or if we would like anything else. The fries are frozen for sure. I would have ignored all of these shortcomings had the burger been even OK.

Imagine taking a giant meatball and boiling (not broiling or grilling) it until it is grey throughout (I ask for medium) Then place on soggy bun with rubberized mushrooms. Do not add any seasoning at all. I would have sent it back, but our waiter never came back.

This place SUCKS. Save your $20 and go elsewhere (anywhere else – really, it’s that crappy)! Total rubbish

We stumbled across this small place (20 tables?) on a Sunday morning. The wait was short, the crowd eclectic and the food....delicious! I ordered the veggie quesadilla (grilled broccoli, mushrooms, diced tomatoes, onions and cheddar cheese) and it came with sour cream and guacamole. Spencer had the bacon cheese burger that came with lettuce, tomatoes and fries. Beware....the burgers are BIG. Both of us had a water as well. You can watch the cooks work the grill and the tables filled with families and friends or watch the tv's showing sports. Either way, the food is excellent and so is the service. Our bill was ~$34 and we were still full by dinner time!

Sure, it's not the best fried chicken in the world, but it's the best fried chicken I've been able to find in New York City. Plus, I got great fries and a nice big salad with it.

Big menu, and relaxed enough to bring kids.

Enjoyed an excellent, perfectly-cooked, thick burger and generous Greek salad at this restaurant in early June. Service was attentive and quick. Portion size was generous. Sweet potato fries were just right, crispy on the outside but thick enough to maintain the distinctive sweet potato flavor. The exclamation point on the goodness of this place was how reasonable the final tab was. Great value.
