SO GOOD! It's so great to have such a delicious burger place so close by and I feel like it's a little hidden secret! Even tastes good delivery...highly recommend!

First the good... quick lunchtime delvery down to 87th Street, a competent person took my order, decent fries, and tasty homemade iced (sweet mint) tea. Now the rest... I had a hankering for some sliders but my 'round the block place is no longer open for lunch so I trolled the web in desperation and discovered Joy Burger Bar. I (mistakenly) overlooked the "sauce" references in the reviews because, well, real burgers (even sliders) don't need much more than cheese, a pickle, and maybe a little ketchup if they're SEASONED and done right. Not only are the Munch (3oz) burgers ridiculously overpriced at nearly $4 a pop (without cheese) but they are totally bland when one doesn't order them with sauce.

Friendly staff, super fast delivery, under 1/2 hour at 7 pm on a week night!

There are a lot of burger places in the city these days, but Joy Burger Bar just has the best burgers, fries & shakes AND it's right near my apartment, so I'm a happy customer. The employees are friendly, the prices are reasonable, the vibe is relaxed and young, and the sauces are pretty addictive... definitely an asset to the neighborhood.

i love the burgers at this place, but also really like the milkshakes. i called right now asking for delivery, and they said b/c they are busy they are not making any milkshakes. how can you eliminate a big part of your menu just b/c you are busy?! this is ridiculous. the girl on the phone was extremely rude about it as well. if you continue to treat customers like this, you will not be very busy for much longer.

I'm downtown girl and I rarely go above 86th Street. I make an exception anytime I'm craving the BEST burger in the city! I'm super picky and a complete food snob and I have high expectations for food quality anyplace I go. I'm telling you - EVERYTHING on the menu is worth the trip! Fresh, all-natural, healthy and delicious. Quality of the food is fantastic. There are so many varieties of delicious sauces, yummy toppings from portobello mushrooms to many varieties of gourmet cheeses. The service is extremely fast, especially since everything is prepared fresh on the grill right in front of your eyes. They also have amazing veggie burgers and salads for the vegetarians out there and plenty of delicious sides from fresh-sliced sweet potato fries to zucchini sticks to the most incredible home fried potatoes. You must try their homemade mint lemonade and iced tea too. They also feature a full beer and wine menu with many great options. I even threw my brother a birthday party there with about twenty people and the service and food was exceptional. I take all of my friends there whenever they are visiting from out of town. My LA friends have said it beats In and Out Burger ten times over! My NYC foodie friends can't believe there is such a hidden gem uptown. They should open up a bunch more locations!

This is to address the other people's criticism of Joy's delivery/service. The other day I ordered and they took over an hour to deliver - usualy they are fast for me. When I called back after 40 minutes, they said my order was next out the door. HOWEVER they called me back 5 minutes later, apologized, and took 50% off the price. Maybe they have a few kinks - but at least they care and are working them out. Give them a chance.
