    Best damn burger in the EV. Very low key spot, but if Minca is overflowing next door I always come here. The fries with the garlic aioli is also delicious. What a 💎.

    One of the best burgers I've had in the city and such a great price, friendly staff and good vibes. Perfect place to meet good friends for beers and grub. Will definitely frequent this bar.

    The 'Masterpiece' was true to its name. Onion rings are great, fries were forgettable. Great burger joint with rock'n'roll attitude. If in the mood, this place is perfect.

    Order the black iron burguer, garlic fries, onion rings and a Pitcher of Blue Point!

    Sonia Costa · September 7, 2015

    Bartender was curt, but got the job done. Turkey burger wasn't fresh, bun was too dense, and good toppings or sauce cost extra. In the EV, there are enough other options to be picky. I'm unenthused.

    Nate Beatty · September 6, 2015
  • Julius T.

    Wow I've passed here so many times for Minca but the burger is really really good. The fried green tomatoes are insane - just a bit of the tomato juice taste

    Great burger spot!

    Try the masterpiece! Amazeballs!!!

  • Santi A.

    Their turkey burger with avocado is a guilty pleasure. It's big, messy, and everything you want from comfort food. Great for delivery, the actual space is quite dingy but charming

    Santi Amaya · June 7, 2015
  • Dens

    Great spot for burger in the EV but create a custom burger otherwise you'll be drowning in special sauce

    Dens · April 20, 2015

    Veggie burger and garlic fries

    I was really impressed. This place serves one of the best burgers I've had in NYC. Will definitely be going back.

    Don't know why this place has such a mediocre rating on Yelp, but this place has super tasty burgers. Also, great selection of beers on tap. I'll be back

    It's like hanging out in a burger sauna. So tasty, never fails.

    The Black Iron Burger is FLAWLESS. The classic with bacon and blue cheese. Wow. Best burgers in the neighborhood!

    Best burger I've ever had. Best onion rings I've ever had.

    The masterpiece is the way to go. Grab some friends and sit in the back booth; you'll get a free pitcher if you all get them burgers

    Bin Yang · November 15, 2014

    Best in NY

    Wasabi burger ftw!!!

  • Ranu R.

    Can't go wrong but the patty melt is pretty darn good. Make sure you get a side of aioli fries, solid base for a night of drinking.

    Fantastic onion rings. The buffalo wings are unconventional but great (battered, with the buffalo sauce on the side).

    Ben Fishner · August 29, 2014
  • Christopher F.

    The Black Iron is one if the best burgers I've ever had!

    Christopher Freda · August 7, 2014
  • Brian D.

    Take a step out of NYC to this cheap spot. You'll leave smelling like a grill pit, but #priorities.

    Cool little place, and the burgers were so good! Share fries with another person. Very dark inside. Good beer selection

    Loaded fries are a must order!

    Antonio is not only a fantastic server he has immaculate taste in 80's standards and 90's R&B. Oh and they are still slinging tasty burgers after all these years.

    Order online and use the code BIB10 for 10% off every order. Super brilliant.

    Paul Travis Klein · January 21, 2014
  • Carey (The ACE) H.

    Great burgers and sides. If you can't decide between fries or onion rings, get both for just a dollar more!

    Carey (The ACE) Holness · November 12, 2013
  • Paul Travis K.

    Sit at the bar! Service is generally iffy, which is a shame, because everything on the menu is spectacular. Go for the horseradish cheddar. You will not regret it.

    Paul Travis Klein · October 21, 2013
  • Andrew C.

    Avoid the turkey burger. Healthy white meat, but void of flavor.

    Andrew Cerda · August 13, 2013
  • Nav S.

    Turkey burger is just as delish

    Nav Singh · August 2, 2013

    Worth a visit. More than once.

    Anyplace that plays Lennon's "Crippled Inside" is cool with me!
