Perfect place to eat with my teenage son before an SNL taping. Our seat was immediately behind the host stand so it was a bit noisy but it was a fun, lively atmosphere overall.

I’d happily keep this place in mind when I’m back in the city with the rest of the family.

Quick service, very reasonably priced and burgers were absolutely delicious.

I made reservations for 4 after spending the morning at MoMA with my best friend and my goddaughters. We decided on Bill’s cause it was the closest restaurant to the museum that was kid-friendly. We were glad to discover that there’s a kids’ menu. It is not featured online, so that was a pleasant surprise. Food was excellent, especially the shakes. Unfortunately, we were told that specialty shakes were not available. So we all got chocolate instead. Kids were very happy with their pretzel bites and chicken fingers. The burgers that the adults ordered were amazing. My only criticism is that the server was not particularly attentive, which didn’t make sense as it wasn’t that busy.

Made reservations for lunch at 12:30pm on Friday afternoon. My party was promptly seated. Our server was friendly, efficient and attentive to my children. Our meals arrived quickly and were very good. Would definitely recommend!

We went to bills specifically for shakes, however they were not doing any of the specialty shakes. Our menu is literally handshakes and they were doing them. It would’ve been very nice to know when advance that shakes are no longer being made.

Very well managed, clean, able to offer gluten free for our needs. A little bit slow service, but the food was good and we understand that there was not a lot of people working at that time.

2 of the 4 meals weren't exactly as ordered - But nothing serious was amiss. Disappointed that their specialty shakes aren't back on the menu yet. Staff is excellent!

Boyfriend and I went here after a hot day in the city. Our server was very responsive to our water glasses, and our food came out very quick. Pretty good value but the sides are extra $$. Milkshake servings are VERY generous.

Great location. Right near Rock Center so it’s filled with business lunches. The burgers are delicious. Sat for a bit before being acknowledged for service. Other than that, things were great! Will be back, for sure.

We went here because of reviews on line. Got a last minute reservation in lieu of an Italian dinner we had planned. Seriously- best burger I have had in AGES. Nothing on Earth could have tasted better to me tonight than a great burger. Our server was also the bartender. She was so dang great - with a memory like none other. We’ll be back!

I'm a big fan of your establishment but I recently came for lunch with friends to find that you completely changed your menu. Your fried fish sandwich is superb and I was shocked to hear you've discontinued all fish items from your menu.

We came here for my daughter’s birthday after treating her on her birthday at the American Girl Store across the street. We specifically came because she loves speciality milkshakes. When we went to order, the server told us that only the basic milkshakes were an option. So that was a bummer because that was the reason we came here. The specialty milkshakes were on the in-store menu and on the online menu, so I don’t know why they weren’t available. Also we put a note on the open table reservation that it was for a birthday and she wore a birthday crown that said “Happy Birthday” but the server did not acknowledge her birthday at all. Pretty disappointing but the food was good at least. I would try it again, but not for a special occasion.
