The website says breakfast until 10:45am. We ran there to be there at 10:30am and we were told by a very rude staff at reception that breakfast is over and they're only serving lunch now. Not good, will not go there again. Looks like they do not rely on any new customers.

My family had such a fun night at Junior's on our first night in NYC. It was really crowded, but that added to the excitement of the diner. The atmosphere and service were excellent. The food was fantastic, especially their corned beef and pastrami. The cheesecake is amazing! We would definitely recommend a stop at Junior's!

This is a typical JR restaurant located in the lower level concourse of Grand Central Station New York City. Be prepared for quick service, and be willing to eat on small tables close to others. If you are all right with this, you will have a good meal. Ask for extra napkins, and you might want to use hand sanitizer... More

We found the wait to get in...non-existant :) The service was fast friendly and excellent...the menu was varied and choices were good and for the centre of Manhattan... More

Kids burgers were really big. I had the bacon cheeseburger which was big and good bit expensive. I had a burger at a local diner that was just as big and good for half the price.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
