5 Napkin Burger
Posted by anonymous on 11/14/2012
Cant these places that call themselves estaordinary and that charge enormous prices try a little harder. I had the blue cheese mushroom burger and it was so ordinary and dry. The meat was ok but the presentation and plating of the food was so sloppyand to boot I only found about 3 mushroom slices. The 3 small pieces of bacon thrown on top were cooked yesterday and were so hard to chew and they had the nerve to charge 3 bucks extra more over and above the basic charge which was already exhorbitant How can cole slaw not be delicious. ? It is really such a simple dish and there's was so tasteless and greasy.Of course I have to add that the fries were cold and soggy The onion soup was ok but the gruyere was laid on top and not even melted. Couldnt they even have asked to refill my diet coke on the house since it was 3 dollars and mostly ice. Come on folks you could have made this lunch so much better but apparently someone doesnt care too much about it. Place should be called 10 napkins since 5 are not enough for me to barf in! Next time I am going to one of the fast food burger joints instead and will porbably walk out a lot more satisfied and not spending almost $4o for nothing

I have been here about 3 times - burgers are great.

I can't review the food because we left due to rude service! Mean girl handed us something and told us to wait outside. Not 30 seconds later she sat a couple down who walked in after us. She said it was because they had a child. This is just wrong! You decide.

I visited the 14th st location but the food did not live up to my expectations! I ordered the original burger which has gruyere cheese,rosemary aioli and caramelized onions. The burger itself was bland,the aioli was overpowering and the onions were not that great. The tuscan fries also needed salt. The only two things I found to be worthwhile were the onion rings and the salted caramel milkshake was delicious!

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.
