arrived a little before reservation and got seated promptly. server also came over quickly to take our orders and the food (veggie burgers & waffle fries) was ready pretty fast for how crowded the place was. Waited a little longer than I would’ve liked for the milkshake we ordered at the same time the burgers arrived, but it was pretty darn tasty. Was really pleased they had the beyond burger on the menu as a vegetarian option and they didn’t mind subbing that patty onto any other style of burger-with-condiments. Was there at 7pm on a Saturday and was glad we had a reservation. A bit loud and the downstairs felt sort of crowded, so not the super-nicest ambiance, but fine if you want a place where you can get a hearty burger without much fuss.

MUCH busier, noiseier than I expected for a Thursday night. Food was ok, waiter not too attentive. Drunk 40+ year old men at the bar screaming their drunk faces off the entire time we were there.

We had an issue with handicap accessibility. We arrived and they said it would be 10 minutes for a table that was accessible to open up. We totally understood. When it was free a larger group walked in and they gave the table to them. They said they had another table for us. When we looked at it we said a wheelchair wouldn’t fit in there and she agreed but the other table already sat. The hostess then said there was a booth for us and she’s put wheelchairs there before. Perhaps a manual wheelchair could fit in there but an electric one could not. When we complained she said oh i thought she could get out of the chair and get into the booth. My mother in law is completely wheelchair bound and the hostess never asked if she could. A half hour later the very nice waitress found us a table. I went up to the hostess and explained that i understand business and that the table for the larger group was needed but no one should ever shun a handicap person. We should not have had to squeeze in so the place could accommodate a larger group even though we had a reservation. We would have gone somewhere else but it’s hard to find handicap accessible places on the fly. I had called before to ensure you were handicap accessible and was told you were. You should not consider yourself handicap accessible if you can’t accommodate wheelchairs and where the priority is money and not accessibility.

I like this place because you know what you’re going to get. Very little variability which is what you want during a biz meal

It was a nice experience, not exceptional but good value for the money. Service was good and food above average. Accommodated our request to turn fish tacos into chicken tacos, which were not on the menu.

My family and I ate lunch here. It wasn’t anything special. It was better than fast food, but I was expecting a really sensational burger since it’s in the name. It was just an under-seasoned burger. The fries were really awesome, though!!!

I usually get a Bill's burger on GF bun, but this time I tried The Melt on a GF bun and it was delicious. I will definitely do that again the next time I go.

We always have a meal at Bills Burger when we come to the City. It is always dependably good. Our only complaint is the wrestling the had on the tv while we ate dinner— not the best choice in entertainment.... at least for us.

Prices of food are good, but the restaurant more than makes up for it by high prices on drinks.
Hamburgers were a bit dry and tasteless. Service could be improved as our waiter was not very attentive.

Our waiter was Chris A. One of the finest young men that will serve you. He made a very nice establishment become a wonderful dining experience. He was a brand ambassador. He knew all of Landry's service and experience standards and exemplified them. Tilman, don't let this young man get away.

Terrible service from the moment we walked in. Left waiting for 10 mins to be seated. Then when we went downstairs we were told that we couldn’t sit in a booth as half the floor was shut to customers. Waited 40mins for food to arrive which was bland. I’ve dined here several times before without issue. The hostesses need retaining; more interested in chatting and checking their phones than serving customers.

Make a reservation if possible although we were able to get in a little ahead it filled up quickly for lunch. Excellent service and the Hamburger was delicious! It really tasted fresh and so flavorful. We also had shakes which also were very good! Highly recommend!

Excellent service and dinner! We were near Rockefeller and became hungry. We were seated immediately and greeted warmly. Each member of my family enjoyed their meal. I had a Reuben and it was spectacular! So much corn beef! Ordered a side of onion rings for the table and they were delicious! Now, we saw some people order milkshakes and they looked amazing but we did not have that appetite. Next time!

We went for an early dinner before a show at Radio City. For a place that large, I was surprised that it wasn't very noisy. The food was very good - the sweet potato waffle fries are great. The service was excellent.

The hostess’s seamed very distracted. The server John was great. Order the regular burgers not sliders. Sangria was average at best
