I went to 123 for the first time this week. My friends mentioned that they went by there and i had to experience it for myself. The food was better then expected and service was surprisingly great considering it was crowded. I definitely would recommend it to friends. They have many flat screens to enjoy the games and very good looking staff. Not to mention how could you go wrong with $1 burgers and $3 beers.

I agree the $2 shots are weak, so I stick with the beer, and I'm really happy with that. They have great peanut butter honey wings, fried ravioli and sliders, each under $5.00. At the end of the night I pay between 15-20 bucks and I'm good. They have tables but they fill up early but hanging at the bar is just as good. The bartenders and waitresses are really good.

My friends and I go to 123 after work at least once a week. We always have a cheap fantastic time! I read all these reviews about the shots being watered down and the truth is its a $2 shot with not the best pre-made mixers. There's still definitely enough alcohol for what your paying. The concept is to get a bunch. get 3 for $6 (the price of a shot in almost anywhere in Ny) and you'll be getting the bang for your buck! I'm tired of people taking one shot for a measly two dollars and then complaining. The food is a great deal too, and though the menu is limited i've become quite addicted to the sliders and waffle fries. Beers are about 4 ounces smaller than most bars but at half price, again, a great deal. It's better to know these things before going in but with a little simple math you should get over it and HAVE SOME FUN Without emptying out your wallet or purse!

They have hundred ounce tubes of beer, $1 burgers and $2 shots. What could be better? The service was amazing for how crowded it was (and all the staff wears booty shorts). The plus is that even thought its so cheap, its not a dive at all. They have an incredible beer selection too!

Great place. Very cheap, $3 draft beers all the time. Can get pretty packed on weekends, but the price is right. Good place to watch football on Sunday also.

Went there with a group of 8 and we were told that we couldn't have more than 1 table, 1 table wasn't even big enough to hold all our drinks! When we asked if we could have another table the waitress said ok, but if her manager asked then we had to say that she told us not to. The food was alright, about what you would expect. The beer is good but the shots are extremely weak and really not even worth the $2. The place really seemed like a mix between Hooters and White Castle, but not in a good way. All in all, not great.

I heard about this place when it was brand new and for the price, I just had to stop by. I came by after work midweek and figured it can't be too crowded. When I arrived it was rather packed, but hey this is Manhattan so you deal with it. Then I started more to notice the clientele... I thought I was at a frat party. As I stood at the bar to order a beer I noticed the herd of men making loud and repulsive passes at the staff. "I'd sure love her to sit on my face." etc. Notably the bartenders are scantily clad and all female. I was completely ignored by the bartenders. So after about 10 mins of being ignored I decided to leave. I'm not so much into cat calling. If you're a civilized person, skip this joint.
