Food was ok. I ordered the mamooo and it definitely was not brisket. It was a smashed up hamburger that was sent to my table. I know brisket and that was not it. The fact that the burgers do not come with Fries was a disappointment. I would not return.
The utensils were dirty and the water sent to the table was not iced. Overall the experience was not good compared to the reviews I seen of this place.

It was alright. But very touristy. Probably good for kids since it’s all about burgers and fries.

It was a very nice experience, my daughter wanted to go to your establishment for her 13 birthday dinner. We were at the restaurant when she was about 9 and she loved it. She liked the Milkshakes and you had those wax things that she made eye glasses out of, however we didn’t have them this time. Overall we had a nice time. One critique, our waitress waited in a table first that was seated about five minutes after us. I thought you are waited on the order you are seated and I had reservations.

Our lunch was great. There was an issue where a couple of us had cheese on her burger when we didn’t ask for it. But the wait staff was great, apologized, and got us our food correctly and a very short amount of time. Have been here a few times and will continue to go back! The burgers are phenomenal!

The service was so fast and the food was a decent size for the price. The drinks were good also they have a fully stocked bar. Just know they have only burgers and sandwiches there as well as sides which are a decent portion. The only problem I had was that the burgers don’t come with fries and adds are kind of expensive with $2. But overall 4/5 stars. It’s definitely worth a visit

By far the worst burger I’ve had in years. Burger was well done to point of being crunchy. Totally dry. Pattie was thinner than what you’d get at McDonalds. This was true for all in our party not just one. Burger maybe, maybe, was 1/4 pounder which is nuts for a $15 burger. Cheese wasn’t even melted making it look very much like a fast food burger from the 90s. Can’t believe a place with “burger” in its name can make this bad a burger.

Our waitress was terrible. She was very distracted by coworkers that were walking by and talking to them while taking our order. There were 7 people in my party. She never took our drink order, just asked what food we wanted. 4 of us got the buffalo chicken sandwich. It was supposed to be a grilled piece of chicken breast. It was more like canned chicken formed into a patty and warmed up. It was so mushy and gross. 1 person ordered a cheeseburger with an egg on top, she got the same mushy "chicken" patty with egg. Another person ordered a burger with no mayo. It came out dripping with mayo. We had a child that ordered a kids burger with pickels, fries and milk. HIs milk was never brought out, and he didn't get his pickles. Everyone's fries were cold and soggy.
I've been here twice before and it was phenomenal. The chicken sandwich was delicious and juicy and the fries were warm and crisp. That is why we came back, because I raved about the restaurant and the food. This visit was a complete disappointment.

Took about 1 minutes after being seated for anyone to acknowledge me and my guest and even bring us water. When food arrived, was very messy and cold, asked for Chipotle aioli and waitress forgot multiple times so had to ask hostess for help. Would not suggest.

Even though its a total tourist trap on certain days/certain times of the year, the restaurant is huge and its easy to get a reservation and the food is decent and fairly priced for the area. Has been one of my neighborhood go to's since in opened 9 or 10 years ago.

Aside from being out of several beers/drinks that we asked for the experience was a good one. Think they may have been a little under staffed. Service was quite slow. It was very busy though. Beautiful spring day in NYC.

We had 5:00 reservations on a Friday night, we arrived a 1/2 hr early and we were seated immediately. Our waitress was very attentive, the food was delicious and we ate at our leisure and even lingered a while after we were done. We were not rushed out and overall had a wonderful meal and amazing experience.
