    Portion police

    Firstly, JG's food is delicious and a New York gem that has managed to stay open because of it's delicious food and classic vibe. Secondly, (and the main topic of my review) the portions.... are not fat american sized but are remindful of a time when 60% of our society was overweight. So, go JG to sticking to what works. Stupid fat Americans.

    If u don't like it don't go

    My favorite burger place perhaps in the world. Bloody bull, amstel light, salad with blue cheese, chili, cheeseburger and fries well done. Glad to hear some people hate it!

    Best burger place

    I was introduced to JG's by a business partner who is an Upper East sider. Every time I come into NY from London or where ever I have to go to JG. The food is great, I love the atmosphere and the service is great. I wish they took card payments but that's a small compliant really. After a crazy day of travel and meetings it's the perfect place to 'step away'

    Good food but pricey for what you get

    Is it a good burger? YES! Does it cost too much? Especially since everything else is a separate charge? Unfortunately, yes. Plus, it's usually very crowded because people just like to hang out there (which is great unless you're just hungry and want a good burger). Also, the service can really vary (by the server) from nice to "I think I'm cool" which can really taint your experience.

    A nyc institution

    clearly the negative reviewers on here just do not get it. this place is an institution. i'd go here to hang out even if the food was unappetizing, but the burgers are some of the best in the city. everyone knows your name at melons and nothing soaks up a night's worth of booze like a bloody, bacon cheeseburger and cottage fries. c'mon...

    The best burgers

    Best burgers in the city. The naysayers are obviously tourists who are used to Hardee burgers and "My name is Bozo and I'll be your server today"

    Best burgers in the city

    I've been going here for years, and their burgers are the best in the city. Their fries and pecan pie are also great.
