    Don't forget the Chili!

    I found this place late one night by accident and had no idea I was in for one of the best burgers I've ever had. I've been a few times now and have also discovered that the bowl of chili (with cheese and onions) is damn good.

    Best Burger in the City, Worst Tap in the City

    the best burger in the city..juicy and delicious. the problem with the place is the beer tap. the beers are usually warm and gross. The place is always packed also, so, while you wait for your table, you are drinking warm beers. I sent my beer back my first time there...the bartender responded with "our customers drink them so fast, they dont even notice". The other problem with the place is the bartenders are not good.

    Overrated, poor service!

    Not sure what all the hype is about. Food is ok, service is not good!

    Great Burger, small sized beers

    Not sure if I'd classify the burgers as greatest in the city, but if you live in the UES it's def. worth going to end those burger cravings. A bit disappointed about the small draft beer sizes. I think they are 8oz? I honestly don't think the burger is worth the wait, nor the crowds.

    I've been enjoying the city's best hamburgers here since I was a kid and there's a reason this place has been around for years. The burgers are absolutely delicious and literally just melt in your mouth. The cottage fries aren't bad either. YUM

    Might Just Be The BEST Burger in NYC!

    This is my second time enjoying a cheeseburger...medium-well, from JG Melon. It's just as good as the first time, if not better! I think I've found my go to spot for a GREAT cheeseburger.
