5 Napkin Burger

this is my go to place to bring my mother when she comes to town. we both eat low-carb, which makes picking a new place with options difficult, especially when most suggestions tend toward the italian carb-heavy variety. i always order the tuna burger rare and have never been disappointed. she has enjoyed the lamb burger, which she loves. we sub out the fries for salads, accompany dinner with a bottle of wine or beer. we love it. yes, it is very crowded and the wait time can be long. we plan accordingly and drink at the bar catching up. not a place i'd go to for a random meal, but definitely gives a guest a "new yorky" type night without breaking the bank.

Ordered a house special burger medium rare, within in seconds received a well down burger, obviously not prepared to order. Enough grease to lube a car. The waiter did offer to replace it but what was the point. No standards here. Save your money and get a better burger at Carl's

First visit was on a Fri night around 7. Waited 45 minutes for a table for 4. We all ordered burgers. I had the lamb burger which was different and quite tasty. My friends rated theirs good to average. The side of fries was bland and fast-food like. Service was slow and inattentive...not surprising given the crowd. Overall, not worth the money and definitely not worth the wait.

I found nothing at all exciting or special about 5 Napkin in Hells Kitchen. The burger is huge but the taste is pretty plain. The fries were soggy too. The person I dined with ordered chicken tenders and they were also pretty average. You don't get nearly your money's worth at this place.

Overpriced. Check out some of the local pubs in the area for a burger that honors the meat.

Pretty amazing burger... get "the Original." Don't mess around - go for the best. Juicy, interesting and enjoyable flavors, the best burger I've had in a LONG TIME!!

I don't find myself in this part of town very much, but I would be happy to go back to 5 Napkin Burger if the opportunity arose. They have a nice and unusual beer selection, and the Original Burger came as advertised, large and very juicy. Lots of good flavor. It's a nice solid place to eat. Our waitress was a little overly perky, but I think tourists would find that appealing and tip accordingly.
