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.

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.
