Great March Madness Happy Hour. They have an excellent beer selection with many local beers and IPA’s. Beers out of happy hour are $9 which seems steep to me. We tried the nachos and the Chile was amazing, but the chips were just average (think...More

In Manhattan, home of the $25 burger, Bill's Bar and Burger is a good find. Their basic burger is $13 -- french fies extra -- served in a bar setting by fast efficient wait staff in a clean environment. A little noisy, but.... not bad.

For sure the best burgers in whole NYC. A great menu and variety of options. We also had a gluten free burger that was awesome. Like Central Park or the Empire State, this is a must to visit in NYC!

The atmosphere was great and so was the service. They were very quick for feeding a group of 70 teenagers. The burgers tasted like McDonalds burgers though.

Our hotel clerk recommended Bill's when we checked in.. We had been in airports all morning and we're approaching a Snickers moment. This place had some different hamburgers than your average burger joint. Very tasty and the sweet potato fries were good as well. They...More

Excellent food and a casual atmosphere. A little pricey for a burger $11-16 with no sides but you are in NYC. Sides averaged about $5 but we’re shareable. We’d definitely visit again!

Called in after visiting the 9/11 memorial which is around the corner. I have to say, the service and food was excellent. I also had a few drinks and the staff couldn't do enough for you. If I am ever back to the memorial, I...More

Practice makes perfect...and burgers are no exception. The Bill’s burger evolved from countless tastings, recipes and lots of burger love. The result is a blend of three meats, smashed and cooked on a flattop griddle, served in an all-American seeded bun. It’s your reliable, made-to-order hamburger, plain and simple. While Bill’s flagship location in NYC’s Meatpacking District opened in 2009 as a small neighborhood joint, it quickly turned heads across the city and was followed by a 400-seat space at Rockefeller Center, the biggest standalone burger joint in the country, and a location ‘down the shore’ at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City. Regardless of size or stature, every burger served is made fresh daily. Grab a seat at the bar and select from a long list of craft brews. Bill’s has got some sweet treats, too, from hand-dipped milkshakes to decadent cupcakes.
