    Nice bar, tiny burger

    Why is this place legendary? Must be for the nice bar and cool bartenders. The burger is small, comes with no fries, and is completely ordinary. Obviously not cheap but that was too be expected. Totally overrated.

    Sorry, not outstanding burgers, folks

    Ah, the power of legend! People have been mindlessly ballyhooing P.J. Clarke's burgers for so many decades that who knows when they started being just ordinary -- or if they were ever anything but? The bacon cheeseburger I ordered recently was made with good quality meat, standard cheddar and regular bacon. The bun was standard issue supermarket. The burger was so undercooked (though I ordered it medium) that it was like eating mush. A good grilled burger should have a nice toothsome "crust" as a result of a very hot char, and still be pink -- but not squishy -- on the inside. Disappointing, but now I don't feel so bad having waited so long to try P.J. Clarke's "best in New York!" burger.

    Best Burger In the City?

    I was in the mood for a great burger, and after reading the below commentary, I was wrongly swayed into ordering a burger from P.J. Clarks. They are like butter? Maybe the soggie bun I receceived was drenched in it. It was medicore at best; it was an average little burger that I could find anywhere in the city for half the price, and been spared the soggie bread.

    Best burger in the city, hands down!

    You can't go wrong getting a burger here. They are like butter. They are an institution. I wouldn't eat a burger anywhere else. And if you're crying b/c they don't put anything on it (as mentioned in another review), ask, jack. They are accommodating. Try the smothered onions or Bernaise, quite delightful.

    Delivery doesn't live up

    I've ordered twice. The first time, a burger ordered medium came nearly raw. This time, the order was over an hour after promised, we were sent roasted potatoes instead of fries and a sandwich that was supposed to be on a brioche roll came on two slices of white bread. They were very polite on the phone, but it's still disappointing.

    Great Food and Hidden Celebrity Hangout!

    Not only is the food delicious, the staff is so nice and accomodating. I have been there many times over the past few years and more often than not I have seen a celebrity eating/drinking here! Very impressive to attract celebs on a regular basis. I recommend the Skirt Steak, Turkey Club and fries. MMMMM

    Hands down, this is the best burger in NYC. I dont know what they mix in them, but I could eat them everyday. For a change of pace, try the Cuban sandwich. My husband has yet to have a burger here because he loves the Cuban they make here. The sides are always awesome, especially the fries, the onion strings and the sauted mushrooms....they compliment the burgers so well. The waitresses are great, personable and always give you their full attention if you have a question. Stop in, order a couple of Coronas and sit back and enjoy a really delicious inexpensive meal. Keep your eyes open too, on any given day you'll find a celebrity kicking back and chowing down.
