So this place has enjoyed quite a reputation, only enhanced by the fact that you have to know to look behind the big red velvet curtains off the lobby of Le Parker Meridien hotel to find it. It's a tiny, order-at-the counter place that gets really packed easily. It is self-consciously grungy, which is part of the idea. However, I do wish they out somebody on clean the tables duty so that you wouldn't have to put up with actual grunginess.
The burgers, in my estimation, are fine, but not spectacular. It was greasy (which isn't by itself a problem) and not that flavorful. I'd much rather have a Shake Shack burger if I wanted to stand in line for one (probably the most fair comparison of type/size/format of a burger) or go to a number of other sit-down places that have service and better food. It's a cute idea, but the experience was a bit lacking.
