The place isn't much to behold from the outside, and inside its often bustling with ravenous customers. But in terms of burger quality its unrivaled in the Upper East Side. Furthermore, they boast some of the only authentic tacos worth eating in the UES, with all the traditional variations on hand. They also offer one of the more spectacular breakfast burritos I've had in the neighborhood. The fresh Avocado always hits the spot.

One key word: burrito. Also: Mmmmm. Very typical tiny, lunch counter place. A NY experience, good value, just an all round great place!

I hate to even review this place because I want it to myself. If you blink, you'll walk right by it. The guys who own this tiny place just make really good food. Burgers are great, but the Mexican food here is fantastic. It's cheap, made fresh and quick and really hits the spot! Because it's called Burger One, most people think it's a burger spot, but they do breakfast too. And really, if you want some pretty damn good tacos, jump into this "dive" and toss a couple or five while you watch the guys cook it. Highly recommended!

This may be Manhattan's most lovable restaurant: wonderful guys cooking cheap, excellent food in a tiny, glorious dump. Not a hint of the cuteness, pretense, or overthought nonsense that now plague the borough. I guess it took a bunch of guys from Puebla to re-inject some old-NY-style genuineness around here. Thank God for that. I've seldom if ever had better burgers or tacos. Too crowded at the lunch rush, but that's life. Many may find this overblown, but i'd rate it "Worth a Journey" in Michelin-speak. Thoroughly recommended.

Randomly walked by this place and almost missed it because it was so small. So glad we didn't. I'm from CT where tiny grill places serving proper egg sandwiches and hamburgers abound. This is exactly what I've been missing in NY. Cheap, small, great guys behind the counter and food that hits the spot. We weren't surprised to notice everyone else in there was a regular. Definitely be back again and again for food in a pinch. Keep up the great work guys!!

Run by a terrific bunch of guys, B1 offers great, simple American and Mexican fare, breakfast lunch and dinner. The burgers are juicy, tasty and generally excellent, as are the fries. B1 is very popular with both the local UESers, as well as many service people from across the city who jam the place at lunch hour. Just like the legendary truckers in France, these guys know the best places to eat! Additionally, they have great pancakes, tacos, sandwiches and yes, chocolate egg creams.

I'm a fan of their burger and fries. It's juicy, not dry, and the fries are tasty. I've only done delivery (which comes at a decent time), but I think the burger would be even better if I dined in.
