The perfect $15 burger. That is to say: NOT some high-end "reinterpretation" calculated to allow foodies to indulge in the humble hamburger guilt-free by larding it with fancy (and pricy) gourmet frills. And NOT your neighborhood greasy-spoon's fast, cheap and reliably mediocre $6 special. This is simply the classic burger, done in five or six varieties (beef, turkey, veggie, etc.), generously proportioned (10oz.) and executed exceptionally well. Fresh high-quality ingredients are flawlessly prepared, juicy, delicious, and matched with equally mouth-watering sides and desserts (and a daunting bar selection). One could wish the prices were a few dollars lower -- but my waistline is thankful that they're not, or I'd be eating there far too often. As it is, I've visited 5NB perhaps half a dozen times in as many months, and never left feeling less than deliriously satisfied.

I did not eat at this location, but the one in Astoria. This was a big disappointment. If you are on the search for the best burger, you wont find it here. I don't love thick burgers because they almost always are overcooked (if you're not ordering rare). At this place, the burgers are big with only one piece of cheese --- seriously? There was truly nothing special about the burger or fries, btw, the fries are an additional fee. You will find a way better burger at your local diner.

Despite it being a hot spot in midtown, 5 Napkin Burger is a disappointment. The atmosphere is extraordinarily loud, the crowds are out of control, you'll have a long wait, and the fries are ALWAYS soggy and greasy, the burgers are too big to enjoy. I've never had a good meal there. Overrated and overhyped.

Very good burger, juicy (let's face it a burger without grease is pretty boring), wish i had ordered the rings,had fried dill pickle appetizer and with burger there would have been no room for the rings. I will go there again, for sure.

This is a great, go-to place for pre-theater, but we went on Memorial Day Monday, and we had a great meal. Portions are huge, so appetizers aren't exactly a great idea, but my brother wanted to try the artichoke dip, and it was excellent, served with both crostini and endive for dipping. I had the bacon cheddar burger, just as well done as I like it; my brother had his burger rare, and both came at the same time and were perfect. Good French Fries, amazing onion rings. Too full for dessert. Highly recommended.

Lovethis diner-feel restaurant. Try to make reservation or prepare to wait. Servings are huge. Ahi burger is my favorite!
