    We suggest the 5-Napkin Burger-the taste is great, the quantity abundant, and the onion rings we got on the side instead of fries are some of the best in town-and NYC is an onion-ring-challenged city!

    First timers must try the 5 Napkin Burger, it lives up to all the hype. Warning - it's huge. So if you're not in the mood for a food coma, you can ask them to make it with an 8oz patty instead of 10.

    Better make it 7 or 8 napkins here, one of the better burgers in the city. We recommend the bacon cheddar burger or the original with aioli suace and gruyere with a side of their crispy onion rings.

    For the best bang for your buck, get Saratoga. $6.50 for 7% beer gets you alcohol for less than $1 per percentage. Better deal than any other beer on the menu.

    I eat red meat, but when I come here I always get the veggie burger because it's so good. Filled with real veggies and grains. Get the special sauce on the side though. They put heeps of it on the bun

    I eat kosher and they completely understood! Personally, I'm a plain person. They understood what I wanted. Amazing taste, great music, relaxing setting, great service!

    An awesome burger. Will have to try the lamb burger next time. Just don't ask for the lemonade with no ice. Since it's fresh squeezed they'll put it in a smaller glass rather than the tall one. Boo..

    Definitely get the Original 5 Napkin Burger. Make sure you ask for EXTRA napkins if you’re wearing anything nice. Also try the Steak Frites and The 5N Kobe Beef Foot Long Dog! This place is ALWAYS

    The Original Five Napkin Burger is so good I've never even tried the other burgers. Everytime I think I will,someone next to me orders the Five Napkin right next to me and I'm right back ordering

    The burgers and french fries are nice. It feels like the place is for tourists. Big open area that is loud. However the food was tasty. Might have to wait for a table if you arrive at prime time.

    The New Five Naps on the UWS has a brunch burger. Sloppy as hell! 10 oz sirloin, 2 0z canadian bacon and a sunny egg on a small brioche! Eat it with your hands and sicken the onlookers!!!

    Best hamburger hands down that I have EVER eaten. Got the original medium. Fries were good as well. 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. Service wasn't the best, but who cares.....I went for the burgers.

    Don't waste your time for crap like sushi, get yourself a lamb burger... Of course make it medium rare and add some extra jalapeno and 5Napkins will deliver you the best result.

  • Tricia T.
    SO WONDERFUL! I always bring my family and friends here when they come to visit. Tuscan fries, onion rings, burger salads, and my spin on the "original" - sub a turkey burger, no onion, multigrain rol

    One of the best burgers I have ever had. And I'm from Texas. As much as I've heard great things about a lot of their items, get their original burger. You won't be disappointed.

    Tuscan fries are to die for!!! Definitely worth the extra dollar for the substitute...Veggie Burger is the best veggie burger i ever had. Get it inside out and really be healthy!!!!

    One of my top burger spots in the city; they always satisfy. Wait staff is attentive despite being busy, and that they feature Maker's Mark is like the icing on my cake.

    We're always looking for a delish burger, and we found it at Five Napkin Burger. Warning: you really will need five napkins, but fortunately, they provide cloth napkins. Delightful!

  • Elvis M.
    This location offers fast service, and great food. Order the steak fries, and the bacon burger. One area that needs improvement , the black bald waiter ( don't know his name ) is slow.
    Elvis Martinez · August 23, 2011
  • Francisco O.
    Aside from the fact that the burgers are excellent: the sides are awesome. Onion rings are great and Mac&Cheese is just incredible.

    Host staff may be the rudest in the neighborhood but I might be that way too considering how it doesn't really cater to the neighborhood locals. The HK outpost of 5Napkin isn't your worst choice.

    I'm not even a vegetarian and I'd recommend the veggie burger here. It's indulgent like a burger, but chock full of veggies. Don't get the deep friend pickles wrapped in pastrami. That shit is nasty.

    Try the Egg Bendict Sliders - …amazing Egg Benedict Sliders! Perfectly poached Egg on 2oz. Beef Slider w/ cheddar on english muffin & topped off with béarnaise sauce!

    The kobe beef foot-long hot dog is the real star of the show, moist and salty and festooned with so many ingredients you lose track around "jalapenos." Read more

    I actually expected the namesake burger to be bigger and messier, but it is big and messy. Very tasty, and the fried prosciutto pickles are AWESOME.

    Great burgers, fabulous fries! We ate at the bar. Great service! If your thinking about the veggie burger ask question, very good, but a bit different.

    Original Burger is a must and needs nothing on it but what it comes with. Get it with 'tater-tots,' which are actually mashed-potato-tots. Love it!
    Lenny Gallo · May 7, 2011
  • Norman E.
    The Ahi Tuna burger is a tasty choice. You can swap out the fries for another side like Mac and Cheese or a side salad at no extra charge.
    Norman Ellis · November 5, 2014

    For the love of all things holy order the original. The gruyere cheese and rosemary aioli ....to die for. I had their 5 nut brew, too. Amazing.

    Get the original 5 napkin burger. The onions and cheese are soooo savory. The bread is perfect and fluffy. Medium rare is the only way to go.

    Great burgers, best milkshakes, outstanding service....you can't go wrong with this place! I highly recommend this place. I am definitely coming back!

    original 5 Napkin Burger: quite possibly the greatest burger i've ever had in my life. it was perfect and anything I've ever wanted a burger to be and more.

    One of our fave NYC sit-down spots for a burger. Going pre-theatre? Make a reservation a day in advance. This joint is popular with locals.

    The Original Burger with sweet potato fries is a filling and satisfying meal. Start with the guacamole if you're feeling extra hungry!

    Waiting too long for a table? Grab a seat at the bar and be treated to a cold IPA and friendly, quick service. You will not be disappointed.

    Burgers are enormous and have a price to match. Split one with a friend and get an appetizer. It will be plenty of food

    Great food. If you made a reservation, you have to have the ENTIRE party present. You will not be seated if one person isn't there yet.

    We had the avocado/cucumber rolls, the veggie burger and the kale salad and everything was good.

    Great outdoor seating when it's nice out. If your looking for a burger go for the Avocado Ranch, you won't be disappointed.

    Worthy of all the buzz! First timers, try the Original 5 Napkin Burger - slathered in caramelized onions, gruyère, and rosemary aioli.
    Club Monaco · May 16, 2011

    It's a chain but food is good. Veggie burger is delish, but the bun is way too big. Opt for indoor seating, outdoor tables are dusty.

    Well. I'm not a huge fan of burgers. I tried this place though. But I cannot say that I was really impressed. But maybe that's just me, you know.

    Ive only heard bad things about service from my friends but I've eaten there over ten times and have not had a bad experience. Incredible burgers!

    They have a great veggie burger, make sure to add Rosemary aioli to it! The sweet potato fries are crisp and tasty!

    If you try the 5 napkin burger and are brave enough to eat it out of your hands: Ask for more napkins, you'll need more than 5

    Not enough time to take the pic. Top 3 in NY for sure. Order the Classic or the Lamb. Don't forget your cheddar tots!!

    Great bacon cheese burger but the fried pickles and pastrami was the highlight of the meal. Sakitini is a great cocktail to match. Read more

    Don't waste your time reviewing the menu. Do yourself a favor and order the 5 Napkin Burger. Garlic Aioli, Caramelized Onions and the highest quality sirloin!
