3 Guys Restaurant
Posted by PeteDC on 02/27/2014
We went to the Guggenheim, but found it was closed on Thursdays, Oops. Wandering back we needed a refuge from the icy wind and a restroom stop. We saw 3 Guys and stepped inside just a few minutes before 12:00 PM. What a pleasant surprise. I had Potatoes & Corn soup, my wife Split Pea Soup. Both tasty and warming. Bowl of bread rolls, crackers were butter included. Then I had the Lunch Special of Chicken Pot Pie, served fresh out the oven, plenty of chicken breast, good white sauce with carrots & peas, topped with a crispy flaky pastry. Delicious. My wife went for the Broiled Mahi Mahi filet served with Spinach and Mashed Potatoes. Also delicious. A Glass of Merlot for my wife and a Corona beer for me. About $48 without tip. By the time we left at 1:00PM the place was full of regulars

I'm no longer a New Yorker, but when I was, the boyfriend, turned fiancee, turned husband and I used to go there at least a few times a month. When I was pregnant, it was our favorite weekend breakfast spot. The wait staff couldn't have been nicer to me, as soon as they saw us walk in the door they'd put in my order for scrambled eggs, waffles, real maple syrup heated (yes, they would warm the little jars for me!) bacon, toast, berries and a large o.j. The food was always great and I have very happy memories. That was over a decade ago! Now, we stop in for a bite every time we are back to visit, and our kids, now 8 and 11 love the basic but good diner fare; burgers, grilled cheese, black and white shakes, etc.

This old standby is a diamond in the rough for UES. Great broiled fish,chicken,moussaka. Nice soups. O.k. Omelettes and pretty good shrimp and turkey salads. Worth the price for a treat.

The food is delicious. The waiters are nice. We have been going there since my daughter was little and now she is 15.

I dont understand why there are so many bad reviews for this place! I have been going to 3 Guys for so many years and I love it. Yes, some of the meals on the menu I wouldn't order, but if you're looking for a great fun breakfast I would so reccomend it. The wraps are great, and the burgers are delicious, it might be over priced but in the end it is totally worth it. Barely have they gotten my order wrong, except in delivieres they dont tend to listen to me. Whenever I come in its pact and sometimes a bit of a wait. It is a great resturant which they recently re did and now gives it a homey feeling. Stop by!

I live close 3 Guys and have found myself going there occasionally when I'm in the mood for diner food. Honestly, the place isn't that bad, but there are a couple of things that are important to keep in mind about the restaurant. The first is that because they stock so much food for their MASSIVE menu, not all of it is going to be particularly good or well-prepared. I wouldn't, for example, expect too much of dishes like New Zealand Mussels Marinara or their Chopped Turkey Steak, so it's no use complaining when you find that none of it tastes particularly gourmet. Desserts are also the pre-made kind (rarely have I found a city "diner" where this is not the case) so don't get your hopes up there either. Secondly, 3 Guys is a restaurant where you need to be conscious of price. Their regular burger for $6.50 isn't all that bad, but ordering a Ceasar Salad (off the entree portion of the menu) for about $15 just isn't worth it. Essentially, the stuff that's fine to order are the (relatively) cheap diner staples - think burgers, sandwiches, shakes, waffles - and the stuff to stay away from is food that is complicated and overly expensive. In regards to service, I have not found that the staff has been memorably rude, but they are not exactly quick to become buddy-buddy with you and will generally only come over to your table if you make it clear that they are wanted. I have occasionally had to ask my waiter two or three times about my order ("Excuse me, I believe we also had a side of fries with this...") and the service can be slow even on days where there seem to be few customers, so come knowing what to expect. Overall, 3 Guys isn't a standout eatery, but it is far from a day-ruining experience.
