The hot wings here are fantastic! The other menu itsma are fantastic as well. But the wings are true buffalo style. They're tangy enough and and flavorful! \nThe meals are pretty inexpensive too. \nI highly recommend trying it out.

I heard a lot of great things about this place, but was underwhelmed when I finally experienced it for myself. The burger was good but not as amazing as it had been built up to be or worth what they charged for it. The service was average, but again, nothing special. The counters were also a bit greasy which made me glad I was sitting at a table. At least that looked like it had been wiped down recently.

My mom took me here for the very first time and it was a great, ever since then I was hooked. They make some pretty great burgers and fries. I had brought a few friends and they loved it too!

I have lived in Brooklyn my whole life. Food is my life and this place has the best burgers . . . SERIOUSLY. The toppings are limited which is just further proof that their meat tastes that good. The wings are also awesome. This is an anniversary joint for me and my guy; beer, wings, and burgers is the best way to celebrate LOVE!

Once upon a long time ago, Bonnies was like my favorite place. Their phone number was on speed dial, and I'd get some wings and go to the park. Back in those days they had lovely waitresses who would, you know, ask you if everything was alright and if they could get you something. At some point Bonnies became a dude only institution and now even though there are 6 guys working you will never ever get one to come to your table if you need something. And if you happen to flag one down, he'll tell you that he'll send your waiter over which may or may not happen. Anyway, to get to the real tradegy, I had a burger here last week...and it wasn't half as good as the burger I had the day before at Double Windsor. For a place that is hyped for it's burgers, they have not kept up with Pat LaFrieda and grass fed and whatever else they need to do to stay on the delicious front of the pack. Not worth it. Go to Shake Shack instead.

Pros: good beers and great fries

Cons: the service here gets worse everytime I go

This is hands-down the best burger I've had in NYC, maybe anywhere. Over two dozen visits now and no variation, just consistently excellent. I have family in Ireland who make this place their first stop when they're stateside. The wings are the real deal too. I'm from Buffalo and I have to say, I suspect these guys are too, because the wings are legit. Also there's a Buffalo Bills helmet on top of the surprisingly well-stocked beer cooler. An often overlooked gem is another Buffalo original, the beef on weck. For you down-staters, it's thinly sliced roast beef au jus on a kummelweck roll (a Polish/German-style roll with caraway seeds and kosher salt), served with horseradish. If you've never had it, I highly recommend it. I like the vegetarian chili a lot too.

DMANBURGER Bonnies Grill\r\nFebruary 1, 2010 \r\n\r\nOn Grammy Awards Sunday I thought it was appropriate to catch the final day of the Brooklyn Museums Rock and Roll Photo Exhibit, featuring the worlds rock stars in various collections by famous shutterbugs. I meandered through Park Slope looking for a pre-museum snack, settling on Bonnies Grill a modest little home-style diner located on 5th Ave in Park Slope. With a long counter and a handful of tables, I propped myself at the bar and thumbed through the menu, which included such hits as Buffalo wings, Veggie Chili, and various homestyle dishes.\r\n\r\nThe Black Angus spiced rubbed burger had my name all over it. I watched in amazement as the cook served up dishes for the entire restaurant single handedly grilling burgers, frying wings and sauting crab cakes but with relative ease. As classic tunes of Led Zeppelin, Creedence Clearwater and Rod Stewart blasted out of the speakers, I glanced around and notice rockabilly college types, downing microbrews and devouring wings while watching ESPN on a flat screen over the busy open kitchen. My server offered limited information about the history of Bonnies opting for the 5th amendment approach to answer my question, however ,I did manage to squeeze out of him that they had been slinging out spicy burgers and other tasty treats for over 10 years.\r\n\r\nMy Spicy Black Angus burger was presented in front of me, along with a very tasty looking Veggie burger (pictured above) yes Veggie burger! I figured Id try one for all you non-carnivores out there. My less than healthy ,but more deliciously divine burger ,was served on a plump fresh whole wheat bun, dill pickles, sauted jalapeos and tangy chipotle mayonnaise. The patty was a Black Angus Sirloin dusted in a mysterious spice rub that gave it a serious kick; the overall taste was flavorful, powerful and insanely juicy in texture. I ravaged the burger bite after bite only pausing to taste the fantastic crisp French Fries that accompanied this delighted sandwich. The Veggie burger was great too, not a traditional favorite of mine, but surprised me with its robust flavor yet easy light texture. It was coupled with crunchy spicy coleslaw and topped with a gooey Swiss cheese and a lightly toasted poppy seed bun.\r\n\r\nThis up-scale rockabilly inspired and decorated diner is definitely worth the visit and with the $10.95 price tag for the Black Angus burger and $8.95 for the Veggie burger was in the right neighborhood in the money department. Despite the less than warm staff, I enjoyed sitting at the bar surrounded by rock n roll pictures and classic melodies that made for a pleasant and scrumptious afternoon. In fewer and more appropriate words, it rocked!!\r\n

Pros: burgers and wings

Cons: it's not around the corner from my apartment !!

.

The food here is really delicious, fresh, home-made and a must-try in Brooklyn. All of the sandwiches are good including, the grilled chicken with brie, pulled pork, portobello, turkey burger and all sandwiches/burgers come with your choice of sides: salad, vegetarian chilli, soup, spicy cole slaw, or fries, which i would def recommend. They are fresh, crispy, and perfectly seasoned (The fries also beg for a little squeeze of the special chipotle mayo)...but out of their options their straight up cheese burger (maybe with some bacon too) is the best. Really juicy and very flavorful. I'd def recommend getting the sauteed jalapeos on it too. They also have a really nice selection of beers-specials on draft, and many different bottle choices too. The mention of beer brings me to the headline, which is the best wings ever!!! You must order a really nice beer if only for the fact that it will perfectly compliment your order of wings (10 or 20 pieces) They come in medium, hot and ""hotter."" I'd go with the medium because it has enough kick, but if you're looking for sweat and maybe a few tears you can try the hotter (The waiter usually gives a fair warning before letting anyone get the hotter-that is how much ""hotter"" they truly are). Each order of wings are made fresh and the skin always comes out nicely crisped with juicy meat inside. Yummmmmmmm. \n

Pros: Yummy

There is no better place in the city to get burgers. Soooo delicious, just spicy enough, and really great fries too. Plus a good beer selection. They have chipotle mayo to dip the fries in, too, which is yummy. I highly recommend this place - just go early, it gets crowded!

Cute place with exposed brick and bar seating that makes you feel like you're in an old diner. The burger I had was very good, but the beer wasn't cold enough. I felt that six bucks was a lot for a beer that wasn't even cold. A frosted glass probably would've helped. The bill was close to twenty bucks for a burger and beer.

Not a greatly decorated place, but man, the food is awesome. I highly recommend the burgers, although sometimes not cooked as well done as you'd like, but still delicious. The wings are soooooo good. I don't even like spicey food but it's so worth it. Even the fries are good. Ok it may not be the cleanest looking place on earth , and the wait staff can be a bit rude, but the food makes it all worth while

Best buffalo wings in Park Slope--and maybe much farther around--at this tiny but homey joint that also has a renowned burger. Cozy, sometimes crowded, but well-priced comfort food (also including a range of sandwiches, like the Buffalo specialty beef-on-weck).

went here a few weeks ago and i remembered that i was here 2 years ago with a friend and the food was really good then. sadly, however, tghis time it wasnt. i ordered a cheeseburger very well done and got a hamburger that was hardly medium cooked. When i politely told this to the waiter he seemed highly annoyed and unsympathetic. I am sure he was overworked and the place was in fact busy( had to sit at the counter) I did leave a respectable tip regardless, but the manager should reitterate to the servers that the customers shoukd be treated a little nicer. Also, beer bottles on shelf are greasy and dusty. Not a clean place at all.... Too many good places out there to have to settle for subpar

I just spent an entirely satisfying couple of hours at Bonnie's.\r\n\r\nYou must take into consideration that I went for lunch on a Monday; there were other folks, but it was not crowded.\r\n\r\nIt is one of those narrow spaces. I sat at a table in the very front, and got to see the interesting folks walking on 5th. There is a long counter, and tables in the back. Those back tables were filled with several groups of friends, it seemed to me. It is necessarily darker in the back, but for friends, that would not be an issue.\r\n\r\nAnd in the front, it was possible to see the beautiful summer day, beautiful even though, actually because of, the alternating sun and threatening rain.\r\n\r\nI eat four cheeseburgers a year. One for each season. I want my cheeseburger to be good.\r\n\r\nThis cheeseburger was very good. I got it medium, and it was a perfect balance of charred and juicy. The meat was flavorful. I got all the toppings, and it was especially nice to have the jalapeno strips on it.\r\n\r\nThe single drawback was the roll. The founders of Bonnie's are from Buffalo, and they ought to know better. The roll was not bad; it was just not perfection. Perfection would be a roll like Costanza's or several other bakeries in Buffalo, all of whom (for some odd reason) outclass NYC rolls (pizza is better in Buffalo also, but that is another story).\r\n\r\nThe french fries were good, but not perfect. They were crisp and tasty. But then, no one has good french fries any more. Again oddly, the best ever french fries were made by a chain called Ground Round, which went out of business years ago. The combination of meaty potatoe-y, shattering greasy-crispy, and piquantly but not too much salty is, apparently, like alchemy.\r\n\r\nThe service at Bonnie's was thoughtful, observant, and amiable. I realize service is always a singular experience, and that only so much can be inferred from a particular experience. When I come to NYC, I want to absorb NYC. No better than Bonnie's. \r\n\r\n

Just came here the other day because my teacher kept raving about this place a few months ago . When I first walked in , there was a long line but no worries .. you will get your order quicker than you think . I got a super steak which was okay but kind of on the bland side . I'm sure I've had better . They have a lot of different flavors of grill to choose from which is awesome because some grill places don't even carry that . Basically if you're looking for a cheap filling meal , this is the place to go . Order a steak or whatever and wash it down with meat .. nothing can top that .

Burgers, fries, and everything in between. They are always pleasant, and accomodating even to vegetarians! Get all the free add ons for your salad! Great for late nite munchies.

I'm a fan, what can I say. There are 4 things to eat at Bonnie's - the burger, the wings, the fries and, last but not least, the chipotle mayo. Never stray and never be disappointed. Don't go to a burger place if you're a vegetarian (although the chili cheese fries look pretty good from a distance). Also don't go every night because you'll gain a hundred lbs. See you there.

Our first visit to Bonnie's and certainly not our last. \r\n\r\nWe wanted to try it for the wings. The wings were very good, a step above your typical slathered in hot sauce (think Blondie's, Down the Hatch etc.) buffalo wings. The revelatory menu item proved to be the burger: one of the best I've had in NYC. Not as big as (the late great) McHales but a really wonderful grilled flavor and a perfect juicy medium on a roll up to the task. \r\n\r\nThe service we received was excellent, friendly and attentive too. The food was delivered quickly and additional beers (Magic Hat and Sierra Nevada on tap, all the Brooklyns in bottles) were brought as soon as requested. The bill was very reasonable by New York standards. \r\n\r\nGreat food, great service in casual and comfortable surroundings.

I'd just be repeating myself if I wrote my experience. Read the recent reviews because they're all true. Terrible waitstaff, mediocre food, dirty sticky tables and bits of food all over floor.

Pros: close to better restaurants u can go to instead

Cons: food, service, and atmosphere

.

They used to be pretty good but with their growing popularity, they've seen fit to raise prices while letting things go to terd. On my last visit, it took an hour and 1/2 for mediocre overpriced burger and soggy fries. The back kitchen door was open the whole time where I had the pleasure of watching a gloveless employee cut vegetables into the rustiest bucket I've ever seen and then transfer them to more ""presentable"" plastic bowls before carrying them out to the grill. Did I mention they don't have a sink back there? Nice. Bottles of beers are overpriced and their cans of soda are lukewarm and also, overpriced ($1.50 for a can of Mugs rootbeer!!). Service is the worst I've ever experienced - mean AND slow.

.

Used to be crazy about Bonnie's, and as a former regular, it pains me to say I'm never going back again. The service has devolved from charmingly slow into insultingly neglectful. I had been noticing a steady decline in the quality of the food (and the service, which is probably related) for some time, but would go back anyway since it was at least familiar, but it isn't anymore. The last time I went, a guy led us to a table for two, threw the menus on the table and just kept on walking, not even noticing that there weren't even chairs at the table. Crab cake appetizers came about 45 minutes after we ordered, and instead of the usual size, they were three quarter-sized very thin crab cakes in a soup of tartar sauce. We decided to let it go. Until another 45 minutes passed, a table next to us was seated, ordered and served before I went back up and asked the guy what was going on. He said, ""We're just really busy. I'll check on that."" The burgers we ordered weren't even on the grill. They hadn't even started after an hour and a half. No apology. I told him we were bouncing. He just said ""whatever"".

I'm surprised this place has such a high rating. I went on a recommendation of a friend and wasn't impressed. The service was slow, but friendly. I wasn't happy with the food at all, it was okay at best. I might go back if I had to, but I'm not rushing,

Yeah, so Bonnie's burgers are OK. But the service is ridiculous, even by the slacker trustafarian standards of Park Slope. In the mood for a burger? And even more, in the mood to wait for said burger for ninety minutes while various skateboard kids, NYU film students, Chomsky experts, professors of social justice, drink PBR from a can and dissect oh, how miserable it is to live in the AmeriKKKa of Chimpy McBushitlerburton and his secret cheneybot brain police? Then Bonnies is for you. You can even smug out while waiting your ninety minutes by contemplating the craggy visage of Johnny Cash and various bluesmen hanging on the wall. Then the burger comes. Is it worth the wait? Quite frankly, no. Bonnie's is the sort of place that could only survive in an environment where stupid hippie leftist types equate bad service with authenticity. Me, I'm praying Starbucks buys the space and boots them out. Bad, bad Bonnie. Go serve your time at McDonalds, you pretentious lowlifes.

Pros: The picture of Johnny Cash on the wall

Cons: Everything else, especially the lame and inept service

My boyfriend introduced me to Bonnies as he loves the burgers (same thing everyone's said here). I don't eat a lot of red meat but the grilled chicken sandwiches are just exactly what they should be -- soft, corn-dusted roll, chicken grilled so it's juicy on the inside and crispy, carbon-striped on the outside, and the cheese is melted perfectly (they make sure it's melted all the way before serving it). I have moved to Boston since living in Park Slope and my boyfriend and I make sure we take a trip back to NYC once every few months just for the burgers and chicken sandwiches.

Pros: Chicken Sandwich, also the guys who own the place are really nice

Cons: Not in Boston

I wrote a nice review of Bonnie's a few weeks ago, but I'm afraid I have to revoke it now. Look it up on the DOH website: Bonnie's got a 43 on their last Dept. of Health inspection! EW!!!!!!! Dirty kitchen, dirty food, yuck!

We did a bit of research and agreed to give Bonnie's a try. The people seemed friendly but reserved and the service was slow. Not overly busy on our visit; I couldn't help but notice that the floor was all wet by our table. The beer selection is great if a bit pricey. The wings were a good choice and they were REALLY spicy; plump and juicy (and we ordered the medium!). My little one had the chicken sandwich and she really liked it. My better half had a burger and it was cooked perfect, juicy and tasty. The spicy cole slaw was tasteless, no spice at all. I was the loser of the day as I ordered the highly recommended cajun catfish burger. What I got was a lot of bread crumbs, no spice, and not much in the way of fish as it was a real thin piece. It was also a bit mushy. Perhaps it was just a bad piece but I was highly disappointed and if I ever return, I won't be getting the catfish.

Bonnie's is a very cute cozy place with delicious food! I had the vegetarian chili cheese fries w/ sour cream and they were delicious!!!! I also had a burger w/ jalepenos and it was huge, juicy and great! I will definately be going back, especially after a night of drinking!

I wonder if Splatooey is talking about me. I was graced with an entire glass of water in my lap. Glad I didn't order beer that day. (Coke comes in a can there so, couldn't have been a Coke.) They could have offered me a few more towels though. Water isn't going to k*ll me. And I ate for free that day. \r\n\r\nI still love the fries, garlic mayo on the portabello, tuna salad. Atmosphere...except for one rude back room kitchen dude. Thier WORST waiter though I found out is a friend of the owner so I've never said anything. All the girls have been good.

this place is supposed to be the place for burgers, but i dont think so. the burgers are big, but dry even though i ordered medium rare. Its not cheap, it was $10 for a burger and fries, and when i was there, the waiter had dropped a FULL glass of coke on a patron, soaking her through! she was really cool about it though :)\r\ni didnt think this greasy spoon was anything to brag about. plus this place looks none too clean.

There isn't much to say about Bonnie's that hasn't been said before. Situated right next to Blue Ribbon (whose burger is also worthy of honorable mention) Bonnie's is the perfect place to go for great burgers in a friendly & casual atmosphere. The whole staff is very friendy and remind you of people that you have known forever. Great food by people who actually seem to care about what they do. The jalapenos and the onion rub on the burgers are a great touch.

Whenever we're hungry and don't know where to go, we inevitably wind up at Bonnies. The food is OUTSTANDING! (My personal favorite is the vegetarian (!!) chili cheese fries and their spicy burger) The service is typical diner service -- nothing outstanding, but they try their best to accommodate. Best advice is to go either early or late, especially on weekends -- they're typically slammed between 7 and 9 PM, and may not even pick up the phone during those times, since it gets so hectic. Otherwise, a FANTASTIC meal awaits!

Their wings are great and they make them hot! Plus they have pitchers to wash it down, and the beer is usually something local and decent. Stay away from the Beef on Weck though. Love the fries and the dipping sauce.

Seriously, the best. I was skeptical, but it's true. Nice spice to everything. The spicy Cole Slaw is a must. As are the VEGETARIAN chilli fries. Casual atmosphere with nice, normal service!

Sports on TV, GREAT food, GREAT beer, and a sexy head chef...what else is there to say except get your ass down to Bonnie's and grab some wings and some catfish or burgers or pulled pork or whatever and wash it down with a few pints!!\n\nIf you are from buffalo you might even want to head over and watch the Bills try to play football while you try to stay clean eating some beef on weck - you know what I'm talking about.\n\nThe place is great and it is VERY affordable. They have some veggie stuff for the veggies and some game for the carnivores and a collection of hot sauces that will keep you burning well after your visit if you like that kind of thing.\n\nGood food, good people and good times. What are you waiting for?

if you go there for the service, forget it, not that it's bad for this particular establishment. The burgers/wings are just what you want, some decent beers also. O.K. its litely seasoned, but theres a wide range of condiments to chose, add your own special touch.

I love hamburgers. That said, I am not a foodie. I like my burgers from medium to well-done and I like them without lettuce, tomato or exotic genre-bending sauces, just onion and occasionally cheese. For my bet, Bonnies is the best burger in the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill/Park Slope districtfrom what I've experienced from 4 years living in New York. The beef is high-quality, well-but-lightly seasoned, and the bun and fries (served with plentiful rich chipotle mayonnaise sauce) are top notch. The atmosphere is midwestern-styled very polite indifference, this is not a place to expect pampering, but the staff are efficient, friendly and will remember frequent visitors. The burgers are wide, but thinner than that of Junior's. I love it, I will go again and again. Weekends are crowded, try it out early in the week, they don't hurt for business but are a must for the burger-loving mid-hipster Brooklynite.

My brother and I go to Bonnies often. This place is not only great for burgers but they also make great wings(the best in nyc) even better than Down the Hatch in Greenwich village. Their pulled-pork sandwich is the best you will find at least in the Northeast. In fact I have never had a pulled-pork sandwich that was better and I have traveled to many places down south. The Crabcakes are also awesome as are the chipotle french fries. You cant beat the prices either. Its a great place to go for a cheap yet good quality meal. I hope they stay in business for a while

That's what's really good at Bonnie's. I honestly have never tried anything else besides the fries with chipolte mayo, which is delicious as well. Bonnie's wings are real-deal style Buffalo wings - incredibly thick and delicious. The sauce is incredible. Hands down the best chicken wings I've had in NYC.

Bonnies does certainly have one of the best burgers you may find in Brooklyn. The Chipatole used for the fries are a nice change and the wings are quite good. The beer selection is above average and they change the art on the walls from different artists making it always something different to see.

Bonnie's does a great job with burgers. A little spicy and completely delicious. Two things I appreciate are that a) cheese is included the price... none of this $1.50 extra BS and b) salad is a choice instead of fries. And it's tasty
