    Milkshakes and malted milk both are SO good, consistently. My favorite non-spiked milkshake in the neighborhood.

    It's the restaurant that features in every Seinfeld episode. Take a picture of the place, but don't go in. Some of their waiters can't even speak English. Food is average. It's not worth it.

    I strictly went here for "Seinfeld". The service is incredibly fast and I ordered Tom's "famous" shishkabob which was sub par. Cool diner-like atmosphere but I would say just get your pic and leave.

    When you ask for a double burger, it is not 2 patties as you'd suspect, it's actually 2 glorious whole burgers. So good and worth it.

    Though the facade is only featured on Seinfeld, I felt like I walked right onto set; waitress spent the entire hour+ eating(complete with ice cream @8 AM?) and picking pimples off her face. WWGD?

    They never filmed Seinfeld here, just the exterior. Jerry Seinfeld & Jason Alexander did film an episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee as their famous characters in season 3 "The Over-Cheer" ☺
