The menu at this chain's flagship centers on an intensely juicy burger, a custom mixture from Pat LaFrieda served on a soft, simple bun. Other offerings include hot dogs, chicken wings, onion rings, milkshakes and crispy veggie fries. The no-frills space offers refuge to local workers and tourists alike, with a bar area resembling an old-school pub lined with local paintings.

I realize this review should center around the burger quality, but let me begin by praising the shakes. The peanut butter bomb, which no longer appears to be on the menu, is out of control. It’s incredibly rich, and I had to have a friend pull it from my grip before I gulped down the whole thing and got sick.

The burgers and fries are pretty standard, and the wait staff in the midtown location make it a pleasant visit all around. Even during peak lunch hours, the size of the space makes the wait time very manageable. As someone who has worked in midtown, this makes for the perfect guilty pleasure lunch.
