    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

    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.

    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.

    About the usual price for a NY burger ($8); but about half the usual size. I'm (still) famished.

    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.

    Food is good but the place is severely understaffed. During lunch time always expect your order to get messed up....

    Not amazing, but not bad. Sweet potato waffle fries and the array of different sauces make it worth a try.

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

    Good burgers - better quality but way over priced. Burger fries and shake shouldn't be $17.00 for take out even in NYC.

    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!
