This place is my payday treat. The burgers are good and the options are VARIOUS. The onion rings are GOOOOD especially with the spicy mayo :) I especially like the milk shakes. They also sell beer to go with your burger (eat in only).

My two boys found plenty on the menu (not GF) I enjoyed the sweet potato fries and burger on GF bun, the GF beer Gutenberg $7 was nice choice, small place but nice for quick stop on Sunday afternoon.

I walked over from my motel on a whim and really liked it. The burger was good, the fries were great, and they even had good a ice cream I was able to finish it off with.

If you love burgers and fries, then this is a great place to stop for gluten free fare. The staff is well versed in handling celiac customers needs. They cook the french fries in a separate fryer, so they are completely safe. Great selection, multiple toppings offered. Meter parking outside.

Cool themed restaurant with a decent ordering experience, however the burgers were grilled and tasted like McDonald's patties with extra topping/condiment options. My daughters bacon was very rubbery and had to have them re-grill it and my sandwich i realized that they forgot my sautéed mushrooms. The fries were average. They were friendly and made the order right but definitely... More

From the regular to the turkey burgers, to the amazing sweet potato fires, to a shake or a cold brew, it's all good! Owners treat you like family.

Full of local families. Order at the counter and collect food when number is yelled out. Good atmosphere and the burgers were really good and reasonably good value for money.

Been staying at the Hilton Garden Inn down the road and this place is in close proximity. Every time I stay in Long Island City I hit this place up. Burgers are made fresh, the condiments are sliced super thin which I like, and the meat itself is of high quality. In addition, they have a Happy Hour from 4-7... More

Went for lunch after checking in at the Hilton Garden Inn down the road, it's only a burger joint but it's a very good one. We would definitely recommend it for anyone staying in the area.

Had lunch here on our first day in NYC arriving from the airport. This place was amazing. We had the portebello mushroom burger which did not fill us up, so we went with the turkey burger. Oh it did not disappoint. The patty was made fresh and it tasted amazing. Wish I came back here more often.
