A comfy atmosphere attracts a laid-back neighborhood crowd to this cash-only pub famed for burgers.- Google
"Hands down, best burger in NYC. Bacon cheese burger and cottage fries."
"Might have a slight edge over Corner Bistro--but it's sooo close!"

Definitely an old timers joint that is an institution in the city. Very similar to Minetta in that you would fully expect patrons to have been coming here every day for thirty years. Also like Minetta, I found the burger very overhyped. My medium had no pink at all and while the meat was good and it wasn't covered in toppings, I found it a bit plain. The simple raw onion, lettuce, and pickles let the burger speak on its own, but I couldn't help think it could have used a bit more seasoning. Service is very 90s New York still with a bit brusque waiters so don't expect much conversation. The beer menu was heartbreaking with Sam Adams being the most exciting option. Cash only but there is a Chase ATM in the Duane Reade next door. For $12 the burger at Upland, or 2 Shake Shack burgers are a much better deal.

The best burger on the East Coast. True, traditional American burger. Goes great with a classic Budweiser or two. Must get cottage fries on the side-- large enough to share :D

Came and watched three parties that arrive after us be seated before us so we left. Time to re-staff!

My girlfriend and I were snubbed and treated very poorly here. I will never be back. They have no formal host stand, so I waded through the busy bar to the restaurant section in the rear of the establishment. An older, heavy-set man with glasses (wearing a plain navy blue polo) rudely asked, "can I help you?" I wasn't sure if I bumped him so I said, "I'm sorry, yes, do you work here?" He rudely scoffed and retorted, " Why else would I ask if I can help you?" He proceeded to take my name and then made another condescending comment when I spelled my name for him (as a courtesy). This man has zero customer service skills and has lost my business. We decided to eat at Bear Burger down the street instead. MUCH better choice :) Much healthier and MUCH better customer service.

Came here based on other reviews. Had a bacon cheeseburger. Omg. They live up to their reviews. Pricey for a small size burger. But worth it.

Nasty rude waitress, insisted everyone in our party order a full meal which at 1230am was not what all of us wanted. There were empty tables so its not like we were stopping them from maximizing their sales. If your not interested in business at that hour why stay open? Food when it finally arrived was awful, of course she added her tip and as we were not expected to be forced to order more than we intended we were short on cash.... its CASH ONLY.. IRS should look at their books for sure. Total abuse.... Never again. NOT WORTH YOUR TIME AND MONEY.
