Bill’s Burger Bar
I found myself in Midtown for lunch one Friday afternoon, so I asked a friend to join me at Bill’s Burger Bar. We started off with the boneless chicken wings – barbecue since I didn’t feel like eating spicy after eating Wu Liang Ye the previous night – which were crunchy, a little oversauced, but tasty in their own right. I definitely prefer eating dark meat, but these sufficed as a nice starter.
My bacon cheddar burger arrived cooked to the requested doneness (medium rare), and was actually pretty tasty. My friend noted that he didn’t think these were particularly large burgers, but I thought they were a fine size (he sometimes eats two for lunch… and yet is not obese, what the heck?!). Was it a phenomenal, life changing burger? No. But it was tasty and satisfied my burger craving nicely, was cooked properly and had a nice flavor to it.
Since neither of us were stuffed and our server really sold us on the cupcakes, we ordered a S’mores cupcake to split. So obscene, that second photo is… In any case, the cupcake surprised me by being moist, not overly sweet, and just the right touch to end a good meal playing catch-up with one of my favorite super tall people in the world.
Yvo says: Bill’s Burger Bar is a perfectly suitable option for those working in midtown (or near the Chelsea location) who want a burger. The location is really big, too, so you can go with a crowd (though make reservations as they can get super busy!) and enjoy yourselves… and I’m sure even the pickiest of your coworkers could find something to eat here
