    Great burger place in one of the most unlikely places. On your left immediately after the front desk of the hotel. Very limited seating, so grab a seat when you can. BURGER NAZI !!

    You really gotta follow your nose to find this awesome hidden spot. Once you're there, rehearse your order in your head. Ordering will be stressful, but well worth not going to the end of the line.

    Peek behind the curtain in the atrium lobby of Le Parker Meridien and an awesome rock-and-roll burger spot is waiting for you. The best place to eat a greasy double cheeseburger is a four-star hotel. Read more

    One of New York's best kept secrets. Your burger? Just call it "The Works", that's the way it should be. So, sit, share your table, make a couple of new friends and enjoy the best burger of your life!

    This burger spot tucked away inside the hotel is great for a cheeseburger, fries, milk shake combo. 90s posters and signatures on the walls make the divebar-esque atmosphere. Worth the trip!

    The Burger Joint is the best place to hang have burgers w/fries in a brown paper bag, brownies even!. You can have a coke, beer, milk shake!.. Very pricy;best place in New York City

    Do what most people recommend and get your burger medium rare with the works. Don't be like me and eat your burger on a park bench unless you're prepared to get ketchup and mayo on your pants.

    NYC's worst kept secret. Great burgers and awesome atmosphere makes this burger joint (no pun intended) a great place to dine at. Make sure you know your order before you get to the cashier!
  • Fernando K.
    Simple and tasteful burger. Version with cheese and bacon is enough (but if you are hungry, ain't got no problem for ask the double one). The place is full of people, but you can eat quickly. Worth it

    Pro-tip: Have your friend grab the first table that opens up, doesn't matter if you're still waiting on the line. Fries are overrated, burgers are as good as you'd hope, shakes are top-notch.

    hands down the best burger i've had in nyc. hidden to the left once you pass the front desk. line's long but it moves quickly. have someone in your party snag a table while you wait to order.

    Get s rare burger with the works. Couple it with fries. Sit outside over to the right of the hotel in a park area. So worth it! One of the best burgers you can get in NYC.

    I don't know if it's a top five burger in NYC. But definitely in the top ten. A must visit if you don't mind sticking out a wait amongst throngs of tourists. Bring a marker to sign the wall.

    Stumbled onto this place via 4Sq and almost bailed when we saw the line. Glad we didn't as it was worth the 30 min wait! It's now my number one burger place worldwide. Delicious!

    Tucked away in the Parker Meridien’s lobby, this is the go-to spot for a burger after you hit up MoMA. To enter, look for the neon burger sign. Sun-Thur: 11am-11:30pm | Fri-Sat: 11am-Midnight

    A great stop if you're looking for authentic, cheap eats near Carnegie Hall. Don't be intimidated by the fact that it's tucked away in the Parker Meridian. A low-key burger joint once you arrive!

    The burger tastes delicious: the fat patty, the melting cheese, the crispy bacon. The restaurant decor is really cool. But overpriced: small burger, little avaliable sitting and too stressed staff...

    A GREAT hole in the wall (you'll need to look hard) for some great burger & fries! A bit $$$ (hey, it's NYC) but it's well worth it. The place is very small so be alert when people leave their tables.

    A little pricey for the size burger you get, but no denying how tasty it is. Plus, who can deny the fun of walking past a curtain and following an unmarked neon burger sign to find this hidden spot.
