  • There is no substitute anywhere in the world for Junior's cheesecake. -Emily Sprissler, Top Chef
  • Its true, the cheesecake is famously goodespecially when you can take it to go! The food is all-american diner, with a very old-school menu. Huge portions.
  • Not a great place for an actual meal, but that's not why people come here in the first place. It's the cheesecake. Rich and delicious, get a slice and you won't be disappointed.
