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!
Bacon cheese burger, cottage chips and a beer make the perfect meal at this UES institution. Remember though, cash only.
A New York classic with antiquated, overpriced food. A great burger, but there are better in New York.
Best burger joint in NYC
The best cheeseburger that I have ever tried in Ny. Atmosphere is also nice.
Best burger ever!!! Really recommanded
Only two orders that are great, cheeseburger and cottage fries. Delicious
Worst service ever
I'm not a burger person, but the cottage potatoes were good
Their burgers taste like ShakeShack burgers except slightly burnt. So go to ShakeShack instead :)
Question? Has jg melon changed it burger meat?
Cheeseburger is legendary!!
Good quality patties.. Served fresh.. Straight forward menu that doesn't make it confusing to choose.
the juiciest and most traditional and perfectly cooked burger in NYC. bacon cheeseburger was great. service was quick. you can wait for a while to get a seat, but the wait is worth it!
Cheeseburger lives up to its reputation. Great place!
Burgers and burgers and more classic burgers (with crispy bacon and a Bloody Mary!)
I ordered the cheeseburger was good a thick layer of meat but its under season needed more salt and pepper.
Home to one of the best burgers in NYC. Great weekend meals as well
Definitely an old timers joint that is an institution in the city. Very similar to Minetta in that you would fully expect patrons to have been coming here every day for thirty years. Burger was just k
What L&B is to a square slice, JG is to the cheeseburger. Absolutely delicious.
The burgers totally live up to their reputation. Really really good
J.G. Melon fries are both cute and delicious
The patty was super thick and juicy. Buns were ok. Overall still worth trying. Cash only.
No frills, yet delicious burgers!
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+.
Best burgers in the city
Choose a burger flipping a coin. A piece of heaven to the Upper East Siders!
One of then best burger meet so far..
best burger in nyc
Unbelievably not worth it
Mediocre, bland small burgers. Don't understand the hype
Cafe is so cute and burger's really really really delicious :)
Great service, burger and cottage fries!
Good burgers, but the manager is a complete asshole... I will never again return to this place
If Bob is behind the bar you'll have a great time!
Best burger I've ever had! Get it rare or medium rare.
amazing cheeseburger and cottage fries! cash only
The burgers live up to the hype but the cottage fries are nothing special, bordering on bland.
The burgers are good and the prices are great!
No frills burgers. Go early or you will eat a while. Cash only.
Cities best bacon cheeseburger.
My favorite restaurant burger in NYC. It gets crowded so go early or be ready to kill time with a few drinks at the bar.
Very fast service...🍔 good patty, super crispy bacon, bun was surprisingly good and kept it all together well. Seating outside in the sunshine was a big plus! 🌞 **recommended**
Great cheeseburger and fries - ask for caramelised onions on the burger! And leave some room for the pecan pie as well
Good no-nonsense burger but cash only and the service isn't that friendly.
A burger and beer are required in this old school NYC institution if you're anywhere in the vicinity.
What's good here? Not the beer selection.
