I used to come here quite a bit when I lived in NY. It was an off brand place with great food. It was creative and seemed like it would take off as a chain like Shake Shack. Somehow that didn't realize and this is the only store that I can find now. Nonetheless the spot still offers great hamburgers... More

I walked past here on my way to the doll store with my granddaughters, and I immediately planned to go here for lunch the next day. At a place called burger heaven you would expect to find artisan type burgers that are hand formed and juicy. The burgers seemed like they may have been formed there by a mold then... More

This was a great place to have your typical American burger and it didn't disappoint. Other people may have unfortunately just had one bad day sadly. However, the staff were attentive, the portions huge and cooked to one's preference, so pretty fab all round I have to say. Btw, we didn't think it was expensive and would go back again... More

the worst burger restaurant in NY. The quality of the food is not there, the atmosphere neither. The waiter was kind, but ineffective. If you see positive comments they have must be written by the owner!

Great burgers, fries, and shakes! They know what they are doing here!!! We sat at the counter and enjoyed all the tastes and smells as well as watching all the food come out of the kitchen.

Stopped here for late afternoon lunch while wandering the city. Just ran across it and thought we'd give it a go. The 4 of us sat at the counter and the service there was good. I had a burger and found it to be thick, moist and tasty. The price was on average with what you'd expect in NYC. Fairly... More

Veggie burger was awful, 6$ to add fries to a 12$ bad burger ridiculous, food on the floor and on the chairs, paper bills with no computer, sanitary grade B on the window. I regret so much and wish i had gone anywhere else instead. My boyfriend had the regular burger and also very disappointing. The veggie was the wort... More

Went there because we were starving, and around 5th ave most of the restaurants are tourist traps anyway. We thought we'd get a decent burger, and trust me, the expectations were pretty damn low. These burgers are absolutely useless, no taste, boring, the meat tastes like a sponge. Avoid at all costs, McDonalds is burger heaven compared to this.

We had a meal here one Friday evening before going up the Rockefeller centre. It was ok but we've had a lot better. The service was excellent and the restaurants was nice and clean, and the food came very quickly, but not really our cup of tea!!

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.
