Do not let the vaguely dodgy appearance of this place discourage you!
It is a very basic, cheesy place, but the burgers are good! Really!
I tried the one with guacamole and it was absolutely delicious, soft fresh bun, tasty meat cooked to perfection and according to my request, good beer and fair prices. The menu is huge and not at all limited to burgers.

I can recommend it for a quick bite whenever you are on Broadway. And, even if the place looks a little scruffy, I think it has something! Very NYC.

Close to Hotel Belleclaire & the food was great. We had the Pizza. The waitress took the time to have a little conversation with us when she found out we were visiting.

The place is a total dive but it was packed when we were there. The food was great and the service was authentic grumpy New Yorker. It was well priced but a little intimidating for an outsider like me especially if you want to use the washroom, which is past several "employees only" "do not enter" signs.
