    Try it once, if you have to

    The food is good, but how hard is it really hard to mess up a burger? Especially if you serve it with nothing except the buns and pickles. The portions are tiny and overpriced and the place is overcrowded. It's all hype...

    Not just burgers

    The chopped steak is the best I've ever had. It's an enormous portion and well worth it at 13 dollars I believe.

    Mmm Good Burger

    Simple, the burger is awesome, the chilli is awesome as well as the wicked awesome cottage fries. Yeah the beers are small, don't order beer then. Order a Bloody Bull like a real man instead. Perfect order, bloody bull, cup of chilli, and a bacon sheese burgrer with a side of cottage fries. Cash only, but it is worth the wait. Great place to spend a hung over Sunday....

    Honey They Shrunk My Beer Mug

    This joint is quite a conundrum. Although the food is very good, it?s as though Rick Moranis busted in and shrunk everything from the food portions to the beer mugs. Eight ounce beer mugs accompany White Castle sized burgers served on bread plates; make you do a double take especially knowing the price is more expensive than any other pub in the city. A B.L.T. runs your wallet $7.95 and the burger about $7.50 ? and yes, Rick got his hands on these sandwiches as well with his shrinking machine. Good food, cost cutting methods that boggle the mind and get your Abdullah oblongata ticking with the price tag that comes with it.

    Melons is the Truth

    People yap about corner bistro, the burger joint etc... but we all know that the burgers at melons are far superior in taste compared to anywhere in nyc.. yea, you wait during prime time, and deal with the overcrowded bar.. but there's a reason.. this place is the truth.. what's better then a seat outside on a nice day at melons?

    Sure, it's a good burger...

    ...But what's up with the sample size beer "mugs?" With the amount of Burger Joints (hint, hint) availble in this city, I really don't think you should need to drop in excess of $30 (incl. tip) for 2 burgers + fries, and what amounted to a Dixie cup (8 oz?) of Bass on tap. Nice to see a place serving the cottage fries, but they're still the best at Roll n Roaster.

    Eat the burger, pass the fries

    Great place and one of the top 3 burgers in nyc.
