Only in NYC can there exist an unexpected gem like this. Reasonably priced, made to order and perfectly prepared, gourmet burgers are grilled behind a nondescript curtain in a hotel lobby. It is the ultimate underground "word of mouth" experience . Same as in the movie, "The Wizard of Oz" of burgers delivers their results in the most unusual way. Their simple menu is all about being the best burger and not how it got there. It is small and super crowded but also efficient (and clean) so the line moves quickly. Dorothy, there is no place like home!
Unassuming, excellent burger for reasonable price. Posters, signatures and graffito on the walls class up the joint. Small but good selection of beer. Burger done right, fresh and extremely juicy. Shoestring fries, hot and crispy. I can't not stop here when I travel anywhere nearby, it's like a black hole.
A fun place that not everyone knows about but yet everyone does know about. The burger and fries were good. The line went fast. But we had a group of 8 and it is not a place for large groups. We were lucky to get a spot.
Great food, quick service!
Quick tips: This place gets crowded and runs out of seats quickly, call ahead and pick up OR eat your food and free up a table! (Please)
They serve beer if that’s your thing and also make great milkshakes. You get a ton of fries (enough for 2 to share)
Also, don’t forget to tip the staff, it’s crowded back there and they work as fast as possible.
Went on a Thursday around 6pm and the line moved really quickly. I live in NY but still like to do touristy things every now and then so when I read about Burger joint I thought, lets do it!. 2 cheeseburgers with 1 order of fries and a milkshake was about $35. The burger did not have any taste and a plain vanilla milkshake for 9.50 is not something I want to experience again. The place itself had a nice vibe with because it feels like your little secret after school burger joint but, I would not go again due to the lack of taste in everything we had.
