123, burger shot beer!!
By spunkychick on 8/13/2011
This means exactly what it entails....$1 burgers, $2 shots, and $3 beers. So that means don't go there with high expectations--go there expecting to eat cheap food and have cheap drinks! Overall, it's a great environment--it's a sportsbar not a lounge, so it's nowhere remotely even fancy, just flat screens all around playing games, loud cheering coming from drunk hot guys, and half naked girls going around serving food. But usually, it's a great crowd, at least it's been for me the couple of times I've been there--groups of friends singing along to songs and laughing, people playing ping pong and couples doing there thing--it's VERY PACKED, but it's exciting nonetheless...
Fun place, good food and beer selection
By Hotroxxxair on 3/14/2010
The burgers are tasty and go great with a draft beer, of which there is a nice selection, including Brooklyn Lager and Sam Adams. The yucca and sweet potato fries are good options for vegetarians. The beer tower looks cool and is filled with beer. The crowd is balanced in terms of the male/female ratio.
Don't Trust Other Reviews!

Overall, the place is decent. The drinks are cheap, and the food is OK. The place is called 123 Burger Shot Beer, not Momofuku. Other reviews are idiotic, trashing the burger size. The $1 burgers are sliders, and you have to order 3. Sliders, by definition, are small. All other portions are regular-sized. I recommend the waffle fries, they are delicious. The main con is that on any given day, the place can get very packed, so call ahead to reserve a table in advance. If you want a few cheap drinks after work, I suggest you head to this place. As cheap as it is, you don't need to be best friends with the waitress---just make sure she brings the beers, shots, and burgers!

Went to this place last year with a group of friends who claimed this place was great. It couldnt have been any further from that. The staff was less than helpful in getting us settled, and once we actual gained the bartenders attention, we were served mini sized beers. I understand the concept behind the place. I now understand that its a concept that needs to be expelled from this city. This place was a waste of time. I ended up going next door to Druid's and loved it. SKIP 123, GOTO DRUID'S

This place is a DISASTER!!!!!! Just thinking about this place it getting to me again!!! First of all the when ordering my food the waiter was not pleasant or friendly. I figure I'll order the sliders,can't go wrong with burgers right??? WRONG the sliders I wasn't expecting them to be the size of GULF BALLS!!!! Had to ordered additional food to give myself the impression that I was full. When ordering a drink my waiter had the audacity to tell me that they ran out of martini glasses, which was incomprehensible to me since there was only like 10 people there including my guest & me. Not to mention my drink taste like rubbing alcohol!!! This place was a waist of my time & money. Your better off going somewhere else where you won't have any issues being mistreated & dealing with rude workers!!! This place is the PITTS!!!!!!!!!! I'm sure they won't be in business much longer.
Wouldnt eat or drink here if it were the last bar in NYC

Where do I begin!! I was refused tap water after my table ordered over $100 of food and drinks. My waitress was very rude, the manager at the time even more rude(though there was another manager there earlier who was very pleasant). When my bill came for my party of 5, gratuity was already included, though the menu clearly states parties of 6. When we kindly asked our waitress why gratuity was included, she defensively said a gentleman who paid for 1 drink for my friend was considered our 6th party because he was speaking to us... WTF..HATED THIS PLACE..BTW.. the drinks were WATERED down and the wings reminded me of chinese left overs reheated in a microwave..GROSS
Sucks, don't bother

I figured I had to at least visit this place to see what the story was. Here is the low down: (1). The shots are premixed crap they charge $2 for....I'm not convinced there's any alcohol in these. (2). The dollar burgers are actually sliders--looking pretty flattened and sad too. You have to order them in groups of three, so really....that's $3. (3). The beer. When I saw the tiny mugs they serve the beer in, I was like...."Whatever." But not only are the glasses tiny, the beer itself is watered down! Gross. Who needs that? (4). The servers are girls who wear black hotpants and look at you like you owe them a huge tip for it. No thanks. This might be the worst bar I've ever been to in NYC.
