5 Napkin Burger
Posted by Anonymous on 07/16/2011
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!

We stumbled upon a great find. Everything was delicious. From the Pomegranate martini to the French onion soup and finally the burger. I ordered an inside out burger and it came with no bun, my mistake. I ended up eating my burger with a fork and knife since the lettuce was my bun but it was delicious. They make their own pickles and a special sauce that goes on the burger and i could probably eat an entire jar of those pickles. The burger was cooked a perfect medium rare and it was delicious. I would definitely go back and get a burger with a bun!

Me and my wife (on our honeymoon) went to five napkins last night and let me say they have the best food ever! I had the original burger and as soon as I bit it, I knew I had never had anything like it. I had a bite of her Italian turkey burger and it was juicy and the marinara added to its flavor. Very unique tastes and a great first experience of NYC after spending 2 hours in traffic to get there. The wait time was 45 mins but pro tip! Go find two seats at the bar...you can order there too. We sat down at the bar and got the two most unique looking beers and ended up with a harpoon cider (amazing) and a whale's tale (not to my liking but different). The bartender we dealt with was great and attentive to our needs but while he was gone and the lady-tender was there, she pretended like we didn't exist. We marked down some for value because each drink was 7$ which jacked up our bill. But subtracting out the drinks, 30$ is well worth it for two great burgers and the story.
