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....

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.

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?

...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.

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

As someone who LOVES burgers, I think these were spectacular, it made me question how people could be vegetarians. They were very tastful and hard to resist when the kitchen and the cooked burgers are visible while you wait for your table. Even though I had my name down for a table, the smell and the view of the burgers made me so impatient and hungry we ended up grabbing seats that were opening at the bar. The service at the bar was really great. The bartender was definitely really cool yet very attentive. I would definitely recommend any kind of burger, the chip shaped delicious fries and the spinach salad with mushrooms and bacon. Oops I forgot about the bloody mary's.... Sooooo perfect and yummy. Beware of the large straws. They can defintely get you into trouble!

My dad and I go every Wed and it is just perfect. The burgers are one of the best in the city. Everyone is always very friendly. It can get a little crowded, but it is worth the wait and close quarters. It is NYC's version of cheers! It is not for big groups, 4 is just right.
