We went for breakfast. The corned beef hash was little greasy but the eggs and Canadian bacon were good. The toast and coffee were excellent. The late night desert dinner were marginal. The tuna fish sandwich was mostly bread and the I cream Sunday was not as ordered but they comped once complained

Cheesecake is my absolute number 1 dessert choice, so I was nervous about ordering. We ordered the plain cheesecake, which was so light and fluffy with just the right amount of sweetness. Also ordered 2 cups of tea, which came in steaming hot pots. Add half & half milk, and we had a great post theatre treat. Definitely recommend for... More

Food here is excellent - cheese cake is amazing. We had a red devil - each slice is massive- we shared as mains portions were really large too. The waitress was great- they brought my son the wrong dish initially and she was so apologetic and gave the cheesecake free. Would definitely recommend- they also have a take out cheesecake... More

This is Juniors Cafe on Vernon Blvd in Long Island City. it's an authentic old time neighborhood bar that serves reasonably priced Italian food. There is no pretense, just good food served hot. In years past, this was a gritty neighborhood that... More

This was my first time in NYC with family and they insisted that we go to Junior's. I was just happy to be in NYC that I didn't care where we ate. I was so delighted when I ordered a meal and it was better than I expected. The food was fresh, and our waitress was top notch. We had... More

Great place. Clean, family atmosphere. Large portions. You can definitely share. The breakfast is so good. Great way to start the day by having a big breakfast, hitting the streets for the day, and having an early dinner. Busy though at peak eating times but lots of tables. Huge dining area inside and out.

A pizza joint like the old days, lots of red, dim lights, characters at the bar....The real deal. Great pizza, wine, pasta, all of it.... Outstanding pizza.. A great place to hang out and just watch the world go by.

The Cheesecake, Pastrami, Corned Beef, and Salads were terrific. The Burgers are huge. There are many menu choices. Times Square location was bright, vibrant, and friendly. I would make an effort to go back next time in town. Expect to pay $20/person on average.
