The Zagat Review
"Huge burgers" on "big buns" accessorized with "every topping known to man" are the raisons d'être of these funky West Side joints that "finally sell fries" too; "spoon-licking shakes" sweeten the sour taste left by "sparse seating and service."

If you're in the area and in the mood for a quick burger or chicken sandwich and a beer, this is a good option. Been here a few times and it's pretty consistently decent. Though there are better burgers to be had, in a pinch (and trying to grab a quick bite before a show at the Beacon), this place works. I feel as though the burgers are a tad overpriced for the quality and the burger buns could use some work. Sandwich options are inventive enough and the decent beer selection works. Don't expect amazing and you'll do fine here.

My friend and i were looking for a good burger joint so we googled it and this place came highly recommended through the reviews I read so we decided to try it. They had milkshakes, burgers , fries etc. I had the build your own burger with spicy BBQ sauce, sauteed onions, bacon. The meat was delicious and tender and came how I ordered it. The fries were about 6 bucks but the waiter said it was big enough to share so we did however we found that the amount of fries was not worth 6 bucks. Aside from that, the 2 staff were waiting, bringing the food , seating customers and cleaning tables for a full house. With having to juggle all that they still managed to be attentive. I was really impressed. Would definitely come here again as well as recommend it.

Large portions of perfectly grilled chicken. Came here 5 months ago and it was the first place that I revisited. Just as great as it was back then! I'll be back here first thing when revisiting NYC!
