    Great burgers on par with Shake Shack...but the sides aren't anything to write home about.

    Burgers and fries. Everything fresh, made to order. Never disappoints and the staff is friendly. Not always guaranteed in fast food places.

    A nice burger joint, looks like old-style revival with a healthier and more interesting twist in terms of burger selection.

    Burger is good, but quite small especially considering the prices are the same as any other midtown lunch joint (if not higher). Sweet potato fries are great.

    Good alternative if you don't want to take out from PJ Clarke's. the staff is lovely. Very accommodating! I chose the Brooklyn au poivre. When I asked for no bun she offered a lettuce wrap! Holler!

    You should definitely add some (sweet potato!) fries to your order - just to take advantage of their unique sauce selection. Root Beer BBQ!

    I don't drink the local haterade. This Miami boy loved everything. Staff were super friendly. Cadillac was amazing & messy--the best burgers always are. Cinnamon donut ice cream was better than words.

    For non-beef options, try the turkey burger, which is reminiscent of its P.J. Clarke's counterpart. Homemade tomato jam makes it extra flavorful. Read more

    FYI-Clarke's charged $4.00 for FIVE tots, but The MELT SHOP directly across the street charges $2.50 for about THIRTY!! No exaggeration.
