I went on a Friday night and i could see why this place was crowded. I'm a burger kind of guy and this is my place! Messy but totally worth it!

Five of us were in NYC on vacation recently... ALL went to Five Napkin Burger... and ALL agreed this was the best burger any of us had EVER had. We range in age from 20s to 50s. It's the most juicy, tasty burger you will ever eat. It's an absolute must for any future trips for us to the city. OMG! You won't be disappointed if you choose to dine at Five Napkin Burger.

I love a great burger and when I recently stopped in at Five Napkin Burger I may have relearned love. My burger was an epically delicious piece of juicy tastiness. I'll be back! I blogged on my experience with the burger shoppe over here. Check it! http://glenwoodnyc.com/roller/blog/entry/five_napkin_burger_on_the

DMANBURGER " Five Napkin Burger"

After feeling some mild post Thanksgiving depression, among other things I decided to participate in the quintessential New York pastime enjoyed between urban players, brunch. I ordered the Original 5 Napkin Burger one of numerous burgers on the menu, when the plate came I was enamored with a mountainous soft white bun before me in which the patty itself was beautifully hidden with a cascading flow of velvety comte cheese, caramelized grilled onions, and a robust rosemary garlic aioli. My first bite was heavenly, powered by the caramel flavor of the onions, then the freshness of the aioli, then lastly the woodsy charcoal taste of the patty it-self. www.dmanburger.com

I have never written a review, nor will I ever again, BUT I was so disappointed with the my bacon cheeseburger that I had to say something. THEY ARE A BURGER RESTAURANT AND THEIR BURGERS ARE OVERCOOKED AND RUN OF THE MILL. Definitely not worth your money. Don't bother.

First tip...do not order anything that is not a burger. I tried that once and walked way disappointed I did not order what this place is all about. Great place to grab seat on the street and people watch. The drinks are great too. BTW...the fries are great...you might want to get a second order.

I had a group of friends in town and wanted to take them somewhere hip but unpretentious, with good but affordable food. This was a great choice. We enjoyed the drinks, the burgers and the lively atmosphere. I like the ambiance and found the service excellent.

My boyfriend and I have eaten at this restaurant almost a dozen times since its opening this summer. We rave about it to our friends and always suggest it to visiting friends. All their burgers are amazing (veggie, beef and best of all, turkey). You can not go wrong with anything on their menu.
