    Blue cheese lovers need to try the BBQ Blue Cheese Burger, it's even better than the Cadillac. Shoe string onion rings are great as well.

    The cheese burger is brilliant! One of my all time favorites. Medium done, it melts in your mouth, and the partially fried pickles were the best part. The fries were excellent too.

    "The Cadillac" is honestly one of the best burgers I've ever had! Reasonable price for a juicy, delicious burger.

    New management completely ruined this place. Perfect example of don't fix what's not broken. Food has gotten worse, more expensive for less value... Bring Back the old pig...

    Excellent burger. Very similar to other old school burger joints like J.G. Melon. If it's your first time, go for the cadillac.

    The signature "Cadillac Burger"—nicknamed by Nat King Cole in the '50s because he thought it was the Cadillac of…well, you get the idea—is everything you want in an old-school, unfussy bar burger. Read more

    Good cocktails, but on the expensive side ($13 - $15) and nothing too special. Burgers are great, and the fries are some of the best in the area.

  • Gary J.

    Hasn't changed since I was here last time, which was over seven years ago. In my opinion that's no bad thing. Fantastic; a must visit.

    Best burgers in New York by far. Actually I'll go out on a limb and say they're the best burgers I've ever tasted.

    Gary Johnston · July 19, 2014
  • Match T.

    Yeah, the burger, but their Lobster Roll with an order of french fries is the business! Only on Wed. though. Lobster mac-n-cheese is another good item. Only on Fridays though.

    Get the cadillac burger. Medium rare. Take your first bite before defiling it with any condiments. You won't need them.
