Great burgers, fries, and shakes! They know what they are doing here!!! We sat at the counter and enjoyed all the tastes and smells as well as watching all the food come out of the kitchen.

Stopped here for late afternoon lunch while wandering the city. Just ran across it and thought we'd give it a go. The 4 of us sat at the counter and the service there was good. I had a burger and found it to be thick, moist and tasty. The price was on average with what you'd expect in NYC. Fairly... More

I regret so much and wish i had gone anywhere else instead. My boyfriend had the regular burger and also very disappointing. The veggie was the wort... More

Went there because we were starving, and around 5th ave most of the restaurants are tourist traps anyway. We thought we'd get a decent burger, and trust me, the expectations were pretty damn low. These burgers are absolutely useless, no taste, boring, the meat tastes like a sponge. Avoid at all costs, McDonalds is burger heaven compared to this.

We had a meal here one Friday evening before going up the Rockefeller centre. It was ok but we've had a lot better. The service was excellent and the restaurants was nice and clean, and the food came very quickly, but not really our cup of tea!!

This is a welcoming, efficient burger resto that offers a nice, inexpensive , diner-style breakfast featuring great hash browns, eggs, bagels and delicious coffee as well as a complete menu featuring omelettes, pancakes, bacon, etc. I would return for sure as everything had flavour and was good quality

We ate lunch here - nice little diner feel with counter service and small booths. I had a BLT on fresh rye - excellent - lots of fresh tomatoes, bacon and lettuce with good mayo..one of the better BLTs I've had. My husband had a turkey and cheese on rye - simple but fresh and good. The sandwiches came with... More

I loved many things while I was working next-door, but I will definitely love the Caesar Salad and beef burger for life:)

Found this little place by chance walking around where we were staying. It's a lovely styled diner and very kind staff. Food was delicious too, I would definitely recommend this place and we hope to be going back there again sometime this week before we leave!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
