    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)

    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.-

    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.

    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!! :)

    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.

    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

    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.

    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..

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

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

    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.

    Sure, it’s totally touristy, but there’s a reason their creamy, not-too-sweet cheesecake has been an NYC must-have since 1950. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

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

    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.
