    They are well known for their cheese cake but I actually don't even eat it from them. They have great food; shrimp parmesean, tuna melts, and one of the best breakfasts in Brooklyn (best cheese eggs)

    Just come for dessert. My sandwich was barely lukewarm. Same for friend. Took a long time for anyone to ack our party of 7. Had to walk around to get assistance. Apple crumb cheesecake was good.

    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

    Loved the cheesecake filling, but wasn't a huge fan of the sponge cake crust. Chocolate mouse geese cake as amaze balls though!! Definitely rich enough to share!! :)

    This location is approximately 256% cooler than the one at Times Square. The Pastrami Reuben is really nice. The cheesecake is perfect. Just fcking perfect.

    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.-

    While Juniors is a full service restaurant and bar serving classic American fare, it isn’t the steak or fish you come here for. As the name suggests, you come here for the cheesecake. Read more

    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.

    The "Something Different," a self-proclaimed sandwich of brisket served between 2 perfectly seasoned potato pancakes with jus, sour cream, and applesauce on the side, is spectacular.

    My favorite cake is the *chocolate mousse cheesecake* combining a layer of cheesecake on the bottom with a top layer of light creamy chocolate mousse and then covered in a chocolate coating.

    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.

    The cheesecake, rugelach, danishes, chocolate chocolate cake, chicken parm, chicken salad bacon club, corned beef pastrami sandwich, shrimp, BBQ chicken shrimp or rib combos.

    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.

    Cheesecake was no Cheesecake Factory. My only tip is that our waiter took FOREVER to come and help us to give us the check and never came to see if everything was ok. Better service is recommended.

    For the love for all that is good, get the cheesecake. Tom Robbins (not the motivational guy) dedicated a chapter to this cheesecake in one of his novels. Yes, it is that good..

    The jerk chix was EVERYTHING. ..however, the cheesecake was very heavy / chunky / disappointing. Now seeing that it is significantly better at room temperature. ..but still no Cheesecake Factory

    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.

    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.

    Tempt your taste buds with a slice of Black Forest, made with Black Forest cherries and Meyer’s rum, or dig into a bowl of chocolate pudding with whipped cream.

    The southern fried chicken is huge and mash is morish. I know it's been said before, but try the cheesecake, I had a religious experience eating mine. Simply amazing.

    Huge plates of food. Make sure you head to the Brooklyn location over the Manhattan ones. Chocolate fudge cakes is delish

    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.

    I can't get over the rat that was seen on top of the cheesecakes a couple years ago. Google it please. If that's what their secret crack ingredient is count me out! no matter how good they are.

    The best cheesecakes in all of New York City. My favorites are the Devils Food, the raspberry and the classic.

    Juniors has the best cheesecake EVER... The oreo cookie cheesecake from Sweet Lady Jane in LA might be the only thing that compares to Juniors

    Look at your check before handing over your credit card. They charge an automatic 18% gratuity then ask for tip on the credit card slip without returning your original receipt. Sneaky.

    Junior's is an institution in Brooklyn...great food across the board, excellent service, and be sure to order the strawberry cheese cake.

    Cheesecake is really awesome, but as far as the food goes, it's really just a diner. Nice little addition of mini pastries with breakfast though.

    Come on Wednesday afternoons, or Thursday - Monday nights to the cocktail bar and meet Tim, who is the epitome of old school bartenders

    Fried chicken and yam fries are good. Seating is pretty tight and the waitress had to pass down the food because she couldn't squeeze through.

    For something different try the 'something different' sandwich - sliced brisket between 2 potato latkes served w/apple sauce and au jus

    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.

    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

    You can't come to NYC and not get a slice or a whole cheesecake from Juniors it's just not right. It's like coming to NYC and not having a hot dog on the street. #realnewyorkcity

    French toast and Canadian Bacon was good. Original cheesecake was good too.
  • Gabriel H.
    The pastrami sandwiches on rye are awesome. Some of the best in NYC.

    Juniors is great for comfort food, and this location has a bar so you can have a Bloody Mary or mimosa.

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