A word from Bill's Bar and Burger
Practice makes perfect...and burgers are no exception. The Bill’s burger evolved from countless tastings, recipes and lots of burger love. The result is a blend of three meats, smashed and cooked on a flattop griddle, served in an all-American seeded bun. It’s your reliable, made-to-order hamburger, plain and simple.

While Bill’s flagship location in NYC’s Meatpacking District opened in 2009 as a small neighborhood joint, it quickly turned heads across the city and was followed by a 400-seat space at Rockefeller Center, the biggest standalone burger joint in the country, and a location ‘down the shore’ at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City. Regardless of size or stature, every burger served is made fresh daily. Grab a seat at the bar and select from a long list of craft brews. Bill’s has got some sweet treats, too, from hand-dipped milkshakes to decadent cupcakes.

  • "My date and I felt rushed even though the restaurant was empty and there was no one waiting. The food was ok, but not what my date was expecting. She had the shrimp burger before at a different location, but not pleased this time around."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The restaurant was very busy due to USA soccer game being shown on screens but that is not the customer's fault. We were "greeted" by a very rude hostess and the waitress was indifferent. We were having our 1st course when the main meals arrived. We asked if they could be brought back later. One minute later the mains arrived again & we asked, again, if we could finish our starters. 2 minutes later the mains arrived again! We ended up accepting them and our table was filled with 8 dishes. Our waitress did not apologise & said that "food arrives quickly here." Totally unacceptable. There are much better restaurants in NYC."

  • "If you want to have a great shake, this is the place to go! Best in New York! However the burgers were small and not done to order. Buns couldn't hold the meat - ended up a mess on the plate. A dissapointment in the food category."

  • "I have dined here a few times before. The wait staff is very friendly and accommodating and they have a shrimp burger that's fantastic! It can be a bit noisy but not enough to prevent me from going there. The atmosphere is very casual and the prices are quite reasonable. Perfect if you're catching a show at Radio City!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "The restaurant itself was lovely but there were a few concerns: 1. The tables by the window were set close together. Everytime someone wanted to get up, the person behind them would have to move or get up as well. 2. The air conditioning was not working properly. It was extremely warm and uncomfortable. The food was good but nothing extraordinary. The service, however, was excellent. Very friendly and accomodating staff."

  • "We have eaten at bills a couple of times now and it is excellent value. The portions are not the usual gigantic US size but they taste good. The margheritas are especially good. The staff are really friendly and efficient. We left having eaten well and drunk well, and it didn't cost a lot either."

  • "Was so glad to have reservations as it was a busy day at Rockefeller Ctr. We were seated right away and was given a awesome window seat to people watch. I ordered the sliders and they were cooked perfectly with a delicious special sauce. Service was friendly and the server stopped by multiple times to check on us. The bottle beer menu had a eclectic selection - drafts list was above average . Great place of lunch, prompt courteous service and tasty food - great value for your money in a touristy area. "

  • "This was convenient. We had a group of I thought that was petty six. We all ordered burgers. Although the burgers were good, they came in a rather small dish with very little around it. Small piece of lettuce a small piece of onion. When I asked for The service was good extra onion I was charged for a side. I thought that was Petty. The service was good. The fries were extra and we had to order 2 orders they weren't very big. Overall it was a good experience but not as good as a nice big burger platter. "

    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "Given the normally terrible food offerings in tourist-heavy areas, I was pleasantly surprised by this place. Sure, everyone is going to have a favorite spot in NYC that they claim has far superior burgers. But at the end of the day, this was a good burger served by pleasant staff in a good setting. The rest of the menu is good too and the service was quick. All in all, this place is not going to win any awards but it is actually a pretty reliable spot in the middle of the tourist madness of Rockefeller. I will definitely go back."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Atmosphere and service were very good here. They take food allergies seriously so we knew our Peanut/Tree Nut/Dairy allergic child could eat safely. Unfortunately the Dairy-Free side dishes were quite limited."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "The brownie milkshake was delicious except for the pieces of so-called "brownie" thrown in. The pieces were hard, dry, stale, chalky, and tasteless. They were inedible. The milkshake itself was great, but if you're going to call something a "brownie milkshake" the brownie part has to be good! Bill's should either: (1) put in real brownie pieces that taste good; (2) take the so-called "brownie" pieces out and call the milkshake something else; or (3) take the item off the menu. The burger was OK except the bun was very small, which made for a big mess. Thankfully there were wet-naps on the table! Get bigger, better-tasting buns please! The steak fries had an off-taste (not fresh oil perhaps?) and the onion rings were fair at best."

  • "I love how this restaurant can be great for a fun little date night but also a good after-work happy hour spot for all those that work near Rock Center. Plus, I could see it being a fabulous find for tourists."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Came here for a burger last week and was truly disappointed! Soggy buns that barely fit the burger, tasteless meat (if you could call it meat, tasted more like a meatless cardboard burger), and, worst of all, the service was the PITS! Our waitress walked by and asked how our meals were and, before we had a chance to open our mouths to respond, she was already walking away towards the next table with her back to us. Then, while we were still finishing our fries, she came up to our table, took the rest of our fries and THEN asked if we were still working on them. After she had already picked them up! She was the absolute worst and I wish I could give zero stars for this establishment."

  • "Perfect first date place to eat. Ambience great to break any first date ice. Variety of great sandwiches, wraps, burgers. Delicious"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "This place has a menu that you would expect from a Bar/Restaurant except that the food is actually well prepared, fresh, and delicious. The floor plan is spread out capable of holding many people but without stacking everyone on top of each other. This makes it easy to enjoy your meal and have a leisurely drink and conversation. The service is also very good. Attentive but not overwhelming. Best of all the prices are reasonable for New York."
