    Get the biggest: the Original 5 Napkin Burger - 10 oz. fresh ground beef, gruyere cheese, caramelized onions & rosemary aioli on a soft white roll. Don't forget to add bacon. Medium rare as always!

    Great food + excellent service = fun times. They really accommodated my party of 8 and were so attentive. The buffalo chicken burger was very good; couple it with sweet potato fries.

    Appropriately named, you will go through many, many napkins trying to eat these juicy burgers. Order the Original or Bacon Cheddar. Consistently one of the better burgers in NYC.

    The burgers are huge and the cheddar tots; crispy outside and super soft inside. I had the BBLT & Avocado Ranch burger. Love it!

    Everything here is pretty good. Nothing on the menu I crave but a good option when the trendier spots are booked - have never had to wait long for a table despite it always being pretty busy.

    Burgers are always amazing as well as the shakes. Outstanding veggie burger! For sushi, get the California Rainbow Roll. Always get a side of sweet potato fries.

    There are three locations, each of which have a great atmosphere. Get the original burger which comes with carmelized onions and gruyere cheese and a side of the savory tuscan fries.

    Try the Original 5 Napkin Burger W/ Tuscan Fries - Perfect burger. The rosemary aioli did double duty- burger and the fries! (Fries need to be crisper, though.)

    Take a look up when seated and marvel at the MEAT hooks. Then treat yourself to either the Original 5N burger or the Bacon Cheddar burger and pair it with the Tuscan fries. Be warned-THE MEAT IS HUGE!

    Great food! Have had burgers, tuna burger, fish & chips, and lobster roll. All good! Another venue that hasn't claimed ownership on Foursquare. Places with employees as mayors take the fun out of it.

    Watch out for crowds. The place is jammed with people from all over and there's usually a wait for a table. Reservations are limited to 30% of the house. So if you're tight for time, try French Roast.

    Forget the burgers, they're okay but there's WAY better. Instead go for the mac and cheese. Again, there's better, but for a burger joint it's pretty damn surprisingly good.
