"I would eat this all the time" -INSIDER food
Nothing represents the American childhood more than hot dogs and burgers; they are the essence of the American social experience. No matter what your political views or social status, everyone enjoys great burger or hot dog.
Kings of Kobe was created to honor that social experience through an enhanced culinary experience suitable for the NYC lifestyle. We aim to have your culinary journey be substantially more intriguing and diverse by using high quality and all-natural American Wagyu beef and specialty condiments.
Kings of Kobe is now open for breakfast with a selection of egg sandwiches and morning favorites!
We weren’t sure what to expect, but the food was phenomenal! Everyone agreed it was the best burgers we’ve ever had
It's really just a lunch counter, but the burgers are delicious!
GREAT BURGERS BEST FF AND RINGS
GREAT SERVICE WILL GO AGAIN
Food was incredible.
Christmas Day dinner
A shopping trip to NYC for the day and we wanted a good midtown lunch spot that wasn’t touristy or took too much time but was quality... THIS PLACE IS THE BEST! The food was hot and cooked perfectly! The timing was just right, staff was super friendly and the ambiance was cozy but also pleasantly private enough to have a conversation without everyone hearing our business. We reserved a table on this app and it was saved for us when we got there! Don’t be spooked by the size, this place is a gem and we will be back next time we come to NYC!!!! Outstanding!!!!
Great burger just very expensive. $57 for two burgers and a can of wine.
Excellent burgers and hot dogs
Burgers were very good. Fries portions (especially chili fries) are very generous.
Place is quite small so be prepared to wait unless you make reservation and then it will be minimal or if you go before 6pm. Only complaint is restroom is practically in kitchen and very small, so small that there is no sink so you would need to wash hands in sink behind counter or kitchen .
Ottimo hamburger in un posto molto informale, con pochi tavoli e atmosfera da bar di quartiere. Non c’è servizio ai tavoli.
A pleasant surprise. Service is fantastic. There isn’t much seating, but diners move quickly. It’s best to secure a reservation through open table although not necessary. All of it is good. Try everything.
This is not the type of dinner stop for us but I can see how it might be fun for a younger crowd or a quick burger for lunch. The burgers and ingredients and are fresh and very good.
Food was spot on
The burgers were VERY good, some of the tastiest burgers I’ve ever had. Onion rings were also delicious. It’s a small place but we went late and got seats at the open windows. Service was great and we were checked on multiple times. Food was delicious, would go again.
My boyfriend and I went into the city just for a bite to eat and walk around. I made a reservation at Kings of Kobe and had no idea what to expect... it was perfect! The guys behind the counter were so kind and not only was the food affordable, but delicious! We ran late and had to push back our reservation and it was not a problem, we had a table waiting for us! Truly a great experience, we will definitely be back.
Good food and attentive service. Would eat there again.
Amazing burgers and fries with a nice touch!
The best we have eaten in NY so far!
Had the Monarch Hotdog and it was just as delicious as its description with their signature creamy coleslaw and bacon bits. The dog had a great snap to it, juicy and all around tasty! Service was awesome!
I ate here on a trip to NYC and I am super happy that I found this place. I have recommended it to everyone who is going. It's a small place, but the food was awesome. I will definitely go again.
Excellent Burger! I will come back next time I’m in NYC
If you like burrata, order the Better than Caesar burger and for side Sweet Potato Tots with spicy maple aioli , is divine. Make sure to book a table because the place is so, so small...
This is our favorite burger and hot dog restaurant and there are lots of them. Their delivery service is great too.
Great service, great food......just great overall!
Great burgers, the meat was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend it!
Un sitio especial y único para degustar los famosos hot dogs de NYC. Atención impecable y comida deliciosa.
Kings of Kobe is great - super friendly staff. Place your order at the counter and then it's brought out to you, seating is limited so if you make a reservation they will hold a table for you. Everyone loved their meals - good size burgers for the price and cooked to requested temp.
The burgers were amazing! I got the gluten free bun and it just fell apart so if I go again I would just get a bun less burger! The sweet potato tater tots were delicious!
Small place but the food was great, and service friendly. Would happily return!
Muy bien y delicioso!!!
I was expecting a bigger restaurant. Restaurant was very cold and loud--not what we were expecting.
Burgers were good, fresh ingredients. Truffle fries were just OK...need more truffle flavor.
Mac & Cheese balls were really good.
This is not a great sit-down place. No backs to the chairs. Burgers were OK, slightly overcooked. Not worth the >$10 price, which does not include sides.
The lady at the counter was SUPER friendly! The food was truly outstanding and I would highly recommend this place!!
One of the best burger I had for a long time. Really tasty, not greasy at all, well prepared, tastefully presented and served with a smile and passion!! Love the place, it is a gem and I can only highly recommend it! If you want a real tasty quality burger or hotdog - this is the place to go to!!!
