I just wanted to say thanks to Michael and Stephen for going there and getting this up on the site. I had heard great things about it from many people here in the city and I went one day. I got lost, of course, and after the nice man in the hotel answered my plea for directions (once I was in the hotel, mind you), I picked up my burger and fries. I wasn't crazy about it though. Just seemed ordinary and the toppings were okay, but nothing to write home about. The reason I like your review so much is that it has inspired me to give it a second try. Your burger looks much thicker than the one I had!
A quick tip. I had first heard about it from The Travelin' Man and from Lawrence at NYCFoodGuy.com. Lawrence gave me a great tip to call ahead and avoid the lines. I used to work a few blocks from there so on my lunch break, I had their phone number on speed dial in my cell. I walked out of work, placed my order, and 5 minutes later walked to the head of the line, paid my cash and beat a hasty retreat back to the office. The daggers that were stared upon me were classic!
