Walking distance from our hotel. Great burgers.....loved the bacon BBQ. Very active busy place. Good service, and not too expensive for New York prices.

We ate here twice while we were visiting New York. We enjoyed the food, the service and the atmosphere. The wait staff was always pleasant and the food served in a reasonable time. Two of the dishes we enjoyed were the chili and the New York cheesecake. It is a good place to eat at when you sightseeing around Rockefeller... More

Very good typical NY atmosphere restaurant. Good food and value for the location. Usually very loud and crazy... Suggest reservations when available. Around Xmas holidays extremely crowded but good food.

Daughter and I had two visits here. 18-25 November, 2016. Jalapeño burger & shrimp burger, with sweet potato waffles. Second time starter of buffalo wings too. When second bill came we did not pay for fries, as they were all over cooked and stuck together. All in all, a great place to eat. Would recommend.

This is a very busy burger bar in the Rockefeller Centre. Waiter was extremely helpful as we hadn't eaten there before. I had fish tacos as I was burgered out. Other party members had shrimp burger, BBQ bacon burger and bacon and cheese burger with pretzel bun all of which were high quality meals. Lots of choices for drinks and... More

Looking for burger & salad before Radio City Christmas Spectacular - walked past and thought "They must have salads, too!" We were seated immediately in the downstairs area. Brenda, our waitress, was friendly, attentive, and efficient. Menu is diverse within parameters of a Bar & Burger restaurant. My Dutch friend chose a burger - it was done perfectly medium rare...

Great place to go for dinner before a Broadway Show. Food is good quality and quick service. Our group table ordered a bunch of appetizers. Butternut squash soup was A+. I would not do a quite sit down dinner, but a quick bite is a good idea.

Thank mklono

Practice makes perfect...and burgers are no exception. The Bill’s burger evolved from countless tastings, recipes and lots of burger love. The result is a blend of three meats, smashed and cooked on a flattop griddle, served in an all-American seeded bun. It’s your reliable, made-to-order hamburger, plain and simple. While Bill’s flagship location in NYC’s Meatpacking District opened in 2009 as a small neighborhood joint, it quickly turned heads across the city and was followed by a 400-seat space at Rockefeller Center, the biggest standalone burger joint in the country, and a location ‘down the shore’ at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City. Regardless of size or stature, every burger served is made fresh daily. Grab a seat at the bar and select from a long list of craft brews. Bill’s has got some sweet treats, too, from hand-dipped milkshakes to decadent cupcakes.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
