They have indoor and outdoor accomodations. Do not let their sloppy outdoor appearance. The locals never do. If you want take out, they kindly insist that you sit down where you please, to rest while they cook them. They are big, but not grossly BIG. They come with freshly washed lettuce, and tomato, pickles, and if you want, raw or fried onions and fresh french fries without salt so you can prepare as you like it (Deli mustard, regular mustard, ketchup and mayoneisse. They are perfectly cooked. Avoid lunch crowds. They are open late. They are the true New York hamburguers, as you would cook them if you had the time and the experience..

This place was recommended to us by a local and we are glad we made the effort. We had some excellent NYC pizza and it was only a short walk from Central Park and the Natural History Museum.
