I have been to Lucky's on 52nd Street many a time. I love their turkey burgers and crinkle fries. Shakes are good, too. My favorite is the black and white. Will definitely return.

The burgers were incredible. Lucky's famous sauce was crazy good. Our other favorites were the black and white shake and the onion rings. Maybe the best onion rings at least in the neighborhood. My son had a hot dog which he said was great. All of us wanted to go back before departing Manhattan but we just never found the... More

Small place, but the food was good (especially given the reasonable price) and is easily accessible from popular location in Midtown such as the Theatre District.

Me and my girlfriend came to this place by accident and what a treat it was. You have alot of different choices in hamburgers, the curly fries taste very good and the price was reasonably cheap. The girl behind the counter was extremy friendly. Our order was quite ready fast and we enjoyed it.

I ordered an "Angus Beef" hamburger with Lucky Sauce, tomatoes, lettuce and onions for $6.00. (I asked for grilled onions but got non-grilled onions.) I added a fries ($3.75) and Diet Coke ($2.25). I also had a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie for $1.00. I really enjoyed all of the food, although I pulled out the onions with my fingers.... More

This is probably my favorite restaurant in New York. It's fast food, but it's really good fast food and their specialty burgers are surprisingly unique and well-prepared. The workers are super friendly, even when they're completely swamped, and the vaguely 50's nostalgia decor is super cute to sit in while waiting for your food. Sometimes gets a little crowded late...

Small place but both times I have been there has not been busy. Don't know why because the burgers are great. Hand shaped patties and my favorite crinkle fries. Also had the onion rings and they appeared to be homemade and were good and crispy. Like their Lucky sauce as well. Bathroom for diners. Not super clean but I have... More

My son and I was looking for a local burger place. We dropped in and each ordered a cheeseburger. After finishing it we both decided to order another cause it was so awesome. Good prices and great burgers!

A friend of ours recommended this restaurant for good food. We are glad we make the walk. Had the chicken sandwich with fries. All I can say is delicious. The service was fast. The place is clean and well kept. Will get back.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
