    This location is approximately 256% cooler than the one at Times Square. The Pastrami Reuben is really nice. The cheesecake is perfect. Just fcking perfect.

    First time I heard of Junior's during an episode of MTV's Making the Band and Diddy made the contestants walk across the BK bridge to get him a piece of cheesecake. Now I know it's worth it!

    They are well known for their cheese cake but I actually don't even eat it from them. They have great food; shrimp parmesean, tuna melts, and one of the best breakfasts in Brooklyn (best cheese eggs)

    This cheesecake really lives up to the expectations and is soft and creamy as heaven. Its sea food is quite good too. Enjoy a complimentary slice showing your New York Pass card on meals over U$S 10.-

    Great vintage restaurant fare, large portions, in an atmosphere that feels like you stepped back in time. The dessert menu is the gem and the cheesecake here is arguably the best in the city

    Loved the cheesecake filling, but wasn't a huge fan of the sponge cake crust. Chocolate mouse geese cake as amaze balls though!! Definitely rich enough to share!! :)

    Can't go wrong with any cheesecake flavor. If you're adventurous, get the New Yorker Cake Shake, which is a milkshake topped with a full slice of cheesecake.

    Sure, it’s totally touristy, but there’s a reason their creamy, not-too-sweet cheesecake has been an NYC must-have since 1950. Read more

    The "Something Different," a self-proclaimed sandwich of brisket served between 2 perfectly seasoned potato pancakes with jus, sour cream, and applesauce on the side, is spectacular.

    The cheesecake is worth the visit and may, just maybe, change your cheesecake ratings you have used in your life prior.

    The crabbed stuffed shrimp is sooooo good. It's really filling. I had to take 2 home. They give you 4 of them and they are the size of golf balls, plus 2 sides

    The best cheesecakes in all of New York City. My favorites are the Devils Food, the raspberry and the classic.

    When you walk in, you can buy whole cheesecakes (different sizes available) from the bakery on your right OR individual slices of cheesecake from the takeout counter on your left.

    While Juniors is a full service restaurant and bar serving classic American fare, it isn’t the steak or fish you come here for. As the name suggests, you come here for the cheesecake. Read more

    Don’t leave without trying the cheesecake! Juniors is one of the greats in Brooklyn; the melting pot of late night dining and strong drinks at the bar.

    if you are a college student in the area, it's a PERFECT place to go before getting dropped off by parents. Otherwise, make sure to go there during Brooklyn Restaurant Week for a massive feast for $25

    The sandwich was nothing to write home about, but the complimentary beets, pickles and slaw were amazingly good. The topper was the excellent Black & White cookies.

    For the love for all that is good, get the cheesecake. Tom Robbins (not the motivational guy) dedicated a chapter to this cheesecake in one of his novels. Yes, it is that good..

    The classic cheesecake is the best you can get. The portions are very much American though - meaning ludicrously big. Worth your time 100%.

    Tempt your taste buds with a slice of Black Forest, made with Black Forest cherries and Meyer’s rum, or dig into a bowl of chocolate pudding with whipped cream.

    Just come for dessert. My sandwich was barely lukewarm. Same for friend. Took a long time for anyone to ack our party of 7. Had to walk around to get assistance. Apple crumb cheesecake was good.

    Original cheesecake is the best I've ever had. If you order an egg cream, get vanilla as chocolate is too sweet and strawberry has chunks of not so flavorful strawberry in it.

    Even if you're by yourself, post up at the bar, order a slice of cheesecake (obviously) and one of their extremely strong drinks (something with Grenadine maybe?). Strike up a conversation. Repeat.

    My favorite cake is the *chocolate mousse cheesecake* combining a layer of cheesecake on the bottom with a top layer of light creamy chocolate mousse and then covered in a chocolate coating.

    Roasted by White Coffee, Junior's Brooklyn Blend satisfies. It calls to mind La Colombe Corsica coffee & rich Porto Rico roasts. JBB arabica beans are Central & South American. Cups are bottomless.

    Try the soup and half sandwich lunch special. The matzo ball soup and corn beef ssndwich are both good. The original cheesecake may please others, but not me. Heavy, gummy, and flavorless.
