Popped into Go Burger on a chilly Saturday afternoon, and were immediately seated in a comfy cozy booth near the bar. Our server was quick to great us, and in a friendly manner pointed out a few of his menu item favorites, like the spinach-artichoke dip starter. My son ordered a burger with VT cheddar, house made smoked ketchup and sautéed mushrooms, which came with a huge "cone" of hot crispy fries (for $10 bucks). I went with a (cod) fish taco that sent me back to Cali in my mind. Fresh crisp cilantro, fine shreds of cool crisp cabbage, sections of creamy avocado atop crunchy perfectly cooked cod in a soft corn tortilla with a smooth spicy chipotle mayo on the side. For $8bucks, two tacos! Yum! I'd go back. Our lunch was on the table in less than 15 minutes, and all the servers and hostess were super friendly. Go there!

45 Minutes for 2 burgers and fries for us to get home and realize they messed up our order. Dont suggest anyone goes here! Food wasn't that good and not worth the wait. Wouldn't suggest anyone goes here- horrible experience.

Have been here twice so far and have been disappointed both the first review someone wrote said..."I hope they are working out the kinks" because it is a cool place inside...but needs work service-wise BAD!! POSITIVE: Very nice bar and dining room...even a great back room with TVS for when games are on. NEGATIVE: Service is horrendous! Both times we were there not a busy time at all. We waited almost TEN minutes for someone even to great us at our table. Then another TEN minutes for 2 bottles of soda! Our food took a very long time...and the topping was so tiny...I had to ask for more it was ridiculous! The first time we were there we had to wait Ten minutes as well for a shake. So we didnt even think about it the second time around. Come on, for a $10-$14 shake...they need to put a little pep in their step. I really am not giving up on this place though...I will give it ONE more shot only because it is new and maybe they hired poor servers the first time around?? That is the only reason I checked if I would go more time. But if you want a decent size burger (Because GO burger is NOT big at all)....Id stick with JG Melons or Doc Watsons.

Swing and a miss

When I lived in Greenwich Village a few years ago I was delighted when BLT Burger opened up around the corner. It offered excellent and thoughtful bar food at reasonable prices. Having moved to the UES I was very excited when I learned that Go Burger would be opening in my neighborhood- and was hoping for more of the same. Sadly, Go Burger leaves a lot to be desired and most of the shortcomings are related to the attitude of the staff and the operation of the restaurant. I've been twice and both have been utterly disappointing. The food is OK, but no better than anything else in the neighborhood. I may give this place another shot but I doubt it- and that's coming from a formerly die hard BLT fan. Shake Shack on 86th is a far superior experience and, of course, JG Mellon blows this place away without any effort at all.
