Bill's Bar and Burger

The popular Meatpacking burger joint expands to Rockefeller Center with this cavernous second location, outfitted with gingham-covered tables and colorful graffiti from local artist Barry McGee. Bill's signature smashed LaFrieda burgers are still the highlight, but expanded offerings include a pulled-pork barbecue melt and a chicken BLT.

What this place has going for it is that it's BIG, so at anytime of the day you may find the wait to be minimal which is awesome in the tourist trap we call Midtown. With a large area both upstairs and downstairs, the latest sports on the side screens and the hustle and bustle of good burgers being served up, you can count on this place to be a solid spot to catch up with friends or just hang with co-workers. The menu is extensive and burgers are not the only thing on the menu, however would suggest sticking with the burgers as you feel that is what they pour their soul into. I had the BBQ bacon cheeseburger which was fulling and delicious. Word to the wise, share a side of fries as its a very generous helping indeed.

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.
