    It’s true, the cheesecake is famously good…especially when you can take it to go! The food is all-american diner, with a very old-school menu. Huge portions.

    Not a great place for an actual meal, but that's not why people come here in the first place. It's the cheesecake. Rich and delicious, get a slice and you won't be disappointed.

    Try the strawberry cheesecake - the big fresh chunks of strawberries atop possibly the world's best cheesecake is a must-try.

  • Jay T.

    I've been coming here for over 40 years and I don't care what anybody says this is the best cheese cake anywhere

    if you are a college student in the area, it's a PERFECT place to go before getting dropped off by parents. Otherwise, make sure to go there during Brooklyn Restaurant Week for a massive feast for $25

    Go to Junior's. Pass by the cheesecake and through the orange dining room. Pull up a stool at the bar. Greet the bartender warmly and order a chocolate milkshake. Tip generously.

    Even before his days of playing for NY, Carmelo Anthony made a point to stop in at Junior's when in Flatbush. Watch Melo's brother talk about Junior’s role in BK history: http://youtu.be/ffhm8VCVjKs

    After reading all the rave reviews, the cheesecake was a disappointment. No way near enough of a graham cracker base.

    Strawberry shortcake cheesecake is a strawberry cheesecake inserted between two layers of strawberry shortcake. That's a lot of cake!

  • Jake S.

    Even if you're by yourself, post up at the bar, order a slice of cheesecake (obviously) and one of their extremely strong drinks (something with Grenadine maybe?). Strike up a conversation. Repeat.

    This cheesecake really lives up to the expectations and is soft and creamy as heaven. Its sea food is quite good too. Enjoy a complimentary slice showing your New York Pass card on meals over U$S 10.-

    Try the Strawberry Shortcake Cheesecake (via @Foodspotting)

    Mike C. · May 19, 2013
  • Thomas N.

    Original cheesecake is the best I've ever had. If you order an egg cream, get vanilla as chocolate is too sweet and strawberry has chunks of not so flavorful strawberry in it.

    Thomas N. · May 7, 2013

    Do the Raspberry Swirl cheesecake. You'll thank me later *wink

    Yesterday Phillip had lunch at Five Guys in Downtown Brooklyn. Today Phillip returns and is looking forward to lunch and cherry cheese cake at Junior's! The cherry cheese cake is delicious! Yum!

    Roasted by White Coffee, Junior's Brooklyn Blend satisfies. It calls to mind La Colombe Corsica coffee & rich Porto Rico roasts. JBB arabica beans are Central & South American. Cups are bottomless.

    Huge servings! Dieters should avoid! Great food! Service is average.

  • Martin S.

    In a word: CHEESECAKE!!!

    Martin S. · August 20, 2011
  • Bob E.

    Try the soup and half sandwich lunch special. The matzo ball soup and corn beef ssndwich are both good. The original cheesecake may please others, but not me. Heavy, gummy, and flavorless.
