Good craft brews on tap ($9), Burgers were fresh and handmade. If you are coming in at Happy Hour and do not mind eating in the bar area, many appetizers on the menu are 50% off, but you have to be sitting in the bar....More

This place is amazing, I’ve visited multiple times. It’s generally quick to get in, but much easier during off times. The burgers, buns, fries, onion rings, shakes are all amazing. My favorites are the bacon burger on pretzel bun with onion rings on the side...More

This was one of the most pleasant sit-by-the-bar dinners I have had. I had a couple of drinks and "Bill's Burger" and was looked after by a very friendly bartender. Everybody knows how awkward solo dinners can be - this was pleasant, both because of...More

Bill's Bar and Burger lives up to (part of) its name--burgers are definitely the dominant feature of their menu! Warning: burgers are all prepared the same (medium to medium-well), there are no special requests. There are a variety of toppings that are included (for the...More

Had two burgers plus fries as a side. The sweet fries were very nice but maybe too sweet for your taste. Definitely give it a try. Reservation is needed for sure, try to avoid rockefeller rush time at around 13.00-14.00.

Food was good and tasty. Thankful for gluten free options. Service was slow even though we ate there for a weekday lunch and arrived early. We arrived at about 11:15 and had no trouble getting a table immediately.

Description
Practice makes perfect...and burgers are no exception. The Bill’s burger evolved from countless tastings, recipes and lots of burger love. The result is a blend of three meats, smashed and cooked on a flattop griddle, served in an all-American seeded bun. It’s your reliable, made-to-order hamburger, plain and simple. While Bill’s flagship location in NYC’s Meatpacking District opened in 2009 as a small neighborhood joint, it quickly turned heads across the city and was followed by a 400-seat space at Rockefeller Center, the biggest standalone burger joint in the country, and a location ‘down the shore’ at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City. Regardless of size or stature, every burger served is made fresh daily. Grab a seat at the bar and select from a long list of craft brews. Bill’s has got some sweet treats, too, from hand-dipped milkshakes to decadent cupcakes.
