  • This place is really called "Yo Yunior"
  • Grab a counter seat and get a cheese burger. Fresh chuck, crisp char, and nice soft bun. Get your super juicy burger medium rare or rare and tell them to skip the plancha (aka don't press the burger)
  • They scramble the contents of your omelets with the eggs before they cook the omelet, which is key. The home fries and coffee are awesome too and they make bacon extra crispy!
  • Inexpensive and TASTY breakfast! Very friendly & quick staff
  • Best greasy spoon in the area. soo good.
  • Get here before 11 and breakfast is even cheaper
  • The burger is indeed quite tasty. Great rendition with no frills that rivals the more expensive ones at nearby restaurants going for 2x the price.
  • The cheeseburger is legit great. On par w the ones nearby at more prestigious Upland, Shake Shack and Maialino. Get bacon on top, they deep fry it.
  • Everything is good. A rare, disappearing relic of old NYC... Especially in this neighborhood!
  • Diner dive but amazing breakfast. Breakfast deals before 11 am. Great coffee
  • Best diner I've had in nyc. Cheap, friendly staff and quick service. Come for brunch!
  • Solid Diner. Feel like Seinfeld here.
  • Old school diner with a great classic cheeseburger.
  • This is a true gem of a place. Sit at the counter, speak Spanish and get your delish breakfast on.
  • Love this spot!
  • I've been coming here since I was in high school. Nothing has changed, because it never needed to. It's always been good comfort food. Order a milkshake for old times sake.
  • No free wifi here, but take a look at some of the network names that show up (including 'Wu-tang LAN' and 'pretty fly for a wifi'
  • We all love the cheeseburger but also, you know, the whole diner thing means the breakfast (like this corned beef hash) is great too.
  • Burger is okay.
  • I dont quite agree with Nick Solares that its the single best in NYC, but sitting at the counter after a long day of work and ordering a cheeseburger deluxe is a hell of a way to soothe the soul.
