    I REFUSE to eat anything else today for fear it will ruin the aftertaste! Simply amazing burger & fries, delivered fast and hot. Nothing fancy, handmade, juicy beef burger done RIGHT! I'll be back!

    Among the BEST burgers in Manhattan. Dine in with a loved one or grab it to-go with friends and find a nearby stoop. These juicy burgers were never meant to be eaten with utensils, folks.

    Pubs don't come more oldschool, and some peg Mellon's burger as the best in the city. It's not, but along with Mellon's crispy waffle-cut fries and cold beer, it is a damn good show. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Yes it's the best cheeseburger in the world! The question is; will you order a #bftt (burger for the table)? If you are with a group, do the right thing and get an extra making you the table hero!

    Since 1972, this kitschy Upper East Side burger joint has been sating meatheads. The cheeseburger is a bite of a bygone era, simple griddled on a flattop and medium-rare juicy. (Critics' Pick) Read more

    A rare burger, recommended, came out in 2 minutes during a recent visit, boasting a charred exterior and a silky, crimson interior. Add bacon and American cheese, then season with a lot of salt. Read more

    Serving burgers in its narrow space since '74. A perfect bar burger and highly recommended cottage fries & bowl of chili. Think of it as a living relic, a throwback to cheap eats meets preppy ideals.

    The best nights are Sunday and Thursday nights. Get there at 6:30pm and have a bloody Bull while you wait. Bobby is the gate keeper for seating, make him your best friend and he will take care of you.

    This place is a neighborhood staple. Don't forget to order a side of their French fries and be sure to bring cash because they don't accept credit cards. Sit at the bar and eat if you're in a hurry!

    Very similar to Corner Bistro in terms of overall aesthetic. Very similar burger too. Loved it. Cottage fries are a unique twist. I like the bacon at Corner Bistro more. But other than that, A+.

    Of the places in the city that do a great classic burger (high on quality basics, low on pretentiousness and distracting novelty), this has got to be among the top few. Meaty, cheesy, good.

    The best cheeseburger in New York City. You get pickes and onions on the side, ask for tomatoes and lettuce as well. Get cottage fries and a Sam Adams on tap for $5. Can't get any better than that!

    Free up your drinking hand since you don't need to look at the menu. Cheeseburger (medium) cottage fries, and a Bloody Mary. This is the most repeatable burger in New York. A proud institution.

    This place is classic. Nothing like a griddled burger, and theirs is perfectly crispy with a juicy center. Order the bacon cheeseburger and a side of cottage potatoes.

    The reputation holds true: you must get a Cheeseburger. Don't overdo it with unnecessary toppings. You'll find it to be one of the tastiest bites you'll find around.
  • Nick T.
    The burger is legitimately great, not a fan of the cottage fries. It's like the ugly stepsister of the waffle fry. The vibe is "upper crust slums it on second ave." Lots of ivy leaguers

    O hambúrguer é um espetáculo, super saboroso! Ele não é muito grande, então é possível que um homem com fome não ache suficiente. Peça um acompanham também. Eles não trabalham com cartões.

    Cara, o lanche daqui é sensacional. Se você gosta de BACON (More Bacon) peça Bacon Cheeseburguer. O lanche não é gigante mas o hambúrguer é grande. O picles e cebola vem separado do lanche no prato.
