I enjoyed the burger at JG Melon; however, there were tenement portions for Co-op prices. The burger was tasty and cooked slightly charred though medium rare on the inside (exactly as ordered) but I could have passed on the pricy fries that were so so at best. The service was not the most friendly and I understand why many people are outright offended. Our table was located in a corner and was both cramped and dark. Overall, an excellent burger if you are in the neighborhood but I would venture elsewhere for a good burger experience without unpleasantries (and high price).

When my boyfriend introduced me to JG Melon I thought I'd have to go there with him every once in a while to keep him happy. After my first bite of a Melon cheeseburger I suggested we order another for dessert, and he told me about the amazing apple pie- which rivals the burgers. This place is great- the staff is fun, the wait is no fun, but worth it- and I'm glad it stays busy because if this place ever closes it will really be missed.

This place has the finest bacon cheese burger in the world, tasty, juicy and perfectly proportioned. Its also got one of the best bloody Mary's in NYC and the fries go perfect with everything.The only reason it doesnt have 5's across the board - haters. If you want size instead of quality and a fake smile for $2.99 go to BK. If you want the best of NY, Melon's is the spot.

Melon's has been a preppy staple for years - the pink and green logo, the late hours, and the Bloody Mary's cater to a certain cables and khakis crowd. Don't put your name on the list until your party's there. Burgers are good, people watching in fun, service is New York Rude. If you go for the burgers go at an off hour.

I had heard these burgers were good, but that was an understatement. It was the best burger I have had in NYC. It wasn't too big and wasn't too small. The fries are great too!

Living on the UES for 4 years, I have been to JG Melon countless times and I have to say, they still do the best burgers in NYC! Every time someone comes to visit, I make sure we go there just for the burgers and every time my visitors have loved everything about the burger, the fries... and the service...hey it is New York afterall! To those complaining about the size of the burger, urm, well just get yourself another one and be done with it and stop complaining, as they are by far the tastiest! YUMMM!

Awesome burgers, but the fries are bad, it was a long wait and the place was small and dark. But besides the negatives, the burgers were insane and the service is very good and speedy.
