Six months ago Joy Burger Bar opened on Sixth Avenue and Washington Place (in the Village). It wasn't until I heard a friend who works at Lifethyme organic grocery saying how good it is that I decided to try it. He was right. Yes, it's kind of fast food, but the burgers are charbroiled, the shakes are thick and the fries are crispy. It's a great $12 meal. I got my food to go, but there's quite a scene going on there, if you're an NYU student or simply dig that kind of vibe. Anyway, while waiting, I got talking to the owner and learned he's Israeli and it made sense. Every Israeli-owned restaurant that has opened nearby in the past few years has turned-out to be fairly cheap and fairly excellent. Nice addition to the neighborhood.

A couple of friends have been talking about Joy Burger so I decided to give it a try. I placed a take out order and was blown away. The girl who answered the phone was so pleasant and patient with my questions which is so unusual for restaurants in New York. When the food arrived the burgers were grilled to perfection. Well done but not overcooked, and the sweet potato fries were so good. Will be ordering again soon.

I ordered for delivery after reading the reviews and knowing someone who has been to the restaurant in person - (that's why my atmosphere rating is low - I don't know) While I placed my order and the person on the phone was great! my order included french fries that came in a soda cup and was not covered. Of course they were cold. The burger was great and I would order from them again and also visit the restaurant but find a way to keep the food warm please. The homemade lemonade was outstanding. This is a great addition to the neighborhood for sure.

I order from Joy Burger all the time. The service is great. The girl who usually takes my order always seems happy. Three choices of burger size are a plus. The delivery is always pretty quick and the burgers and fries are really good. I had a burger at SHake Shack a few weeks back and Joy Burger blows it away.

We tried Joy Burger on the UES for the first time tonight, very excited bc of the great reviews here. Maybe if you're eating in the restaurant it's fine but apparently the good people at JB have never heard of TAKE OUT CONTAINERS!! We ordered two burgers that arrived wrapped in nothing but tissue paper that was soaked through and the fries and onion rings arrived in Paper soda cups WITHOUT LIDS!?! Of course they were so soggy and gross we had to throw them out. BTW we live exactly 10 blocks away so if they can't get it right in that short distance, I feel really bad for people who live farther away.

This place is delicious! The price/quality ratio is great! It seems like the Shake Shack of the west village... but with shorter lines!
