One of the best burger places in NYC, you definitely have to try at least one. Their menu is very varied, you can choose from a lot of options and the prices totally worth each bite.

The burger is very tasty (the vegetarian choice is too, as my partner choosed that and loved it). Price is good for NY.

If your looking for a fine dining its not but if you're looking for a good solid burger then this is the place. Try the Wills burger and if you don't like burgers then try the chicken fajitas. Good food and nicely priced for NYC.

All ages are welcome, very small place though so highchair might not be an option with really small children.

It's a bit on the pricy side. I think it was a 15-18$USD burger with a half order of fries for $4 and a chocolate malt for $6-8? I believe my bill for one person was $20-25 range.
