This is probably my favorite restaurant in New York. It's fast food, but it's really good fast food and their specialty burgers are surprisingly unique and well-prepared. The workers are super friendly, even when they're completely swamped, and the vaguely 50's nostalgia decor is super cute to sit in while waiting for your food. Sometimes gets a little crowded late...

Small place but both times I have been there has not been busy. Don't know why because the burgers are great. Hand shaped patties and my favorite crinkle fries. Also had the onion rings and they appeared to be homemade and were good and crispy. Like their Lucky sauce as well. Bathroom for diners. Not super clean but I have... More

My son and I was looking for a local burger place. We dropped in and each ordered a cheeseburger. After finishing it we both decided to order another cause it was so awesome. Good prices and great burgers!

A friend of ours recommended this restaurant for good food. We are glad we make the walk. Had the chicken sandwich with fries. All I can say is delicious. The service was fast. The place is clean and well kept. Will get back.

I've heard that this is the place to go in Hell's Kitchen for a late night burger, and that the Turkey Burger is one of the best around. I was in the area on a Sunday afternoon and ended up here at the suggestion of a couple of friends. A pretty small place with only a couple of seats, this... More

My wife and I needed to have an early dinner and did not want to spend an arm and a leg. Did a bit of research and it seems that Lucky's was a good option. Well the burgers are very good for a fast food joint and the onion rings van better!

Not sure what happened but it took 25 minutes to get a burger and a wrap. Both were really yummy but we had to eat fast to get to an appointment. The fries looked good too but apparently when I ordered them I wasn't clear about wanting them. I would go again and hope the staff is either different or... More

All I eat is hamburgers and pizza. I know a good burger when I have one. Lucky's is one of my favorite places to eat at. The burgers are fresh and so tasty by themselves. The fries are great and so are the milkshakes!

AHHHHMAZING. Wow. Im madly in love with this place. Everyone's raving about Shake Shack but their burger patties are dry. Lucky's are succulent. The toppings are more plentiful also including fried eggs. Double cheddar burgers with 3 fried eggs. Soooo good. And open late. This is the best burger chain I've yet to find.

Right next door to the Bow Tie Cinema, great place to stop in and grab a bite before or after a movie, nice menu choices, really enjoyed the juicy and tasty hamburger.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
