Tonight was a Weds night and the place had very few people. I live in the neighborhood and really like the owner and his family which I see all the time in the neighborhood.
Of course most of the time when something is great one doesn't

I'm shocked to see so many bad reviews of POP Burger... I go all the time and have never been dissappointed! The food is great, and the atmosphere is awesome! They've got tons of topping to choose from for the burgers, and their fries

Although after reading some of these horrible ratings, I decided to test the waters and give Pop Burger a chance. All-in-all I had a great time. It was a Saturday night around 8PM a few weeks ago and the back seating area (lounge?) seemed lively and fun so we decided to continue back! Although my friend and I sat ourselves (no hostess?), the waitress was accomodating and friendly. The restaurant looked very clean and I like the "wife beater" uniform look. It's not too underplayed and not too formal. The food came out fast and hot and the french fries are best with their "special pop sauce". The drink menu is larger than the food menu, which for me, is a plus! The bartenders should hold off on some of the juice - I had 2 of the martinis and they were on the weaker side. Keep it up Pop Burger, I will be back!

Made a reservation for 35 people for 8:30pm on Saturday night. They said that it would be no problem, and that they would see us then.

I called the day before to confirm, and they said that everything was in order.

We show up to the restaurant at 8:30 on Saturday, and they say that they cannot accommodate us. The manager said that they do not take reservations for over 8 people. I asked why they took our reservation then, and he said that he did not know.

So we couldn't get seated, so 35 people who came from Long Island, Westchester, NJ, and PA had no place to go on a Saturday night because no place would take us without reservations.

I would not recommend this place to anyone!

this place has to have been the worst place with customer service. Our waistress was gross and nasty her name was Melane . She was rude to my guest as soon as they walked in. They pressure everyone to spend lots of money, especially the manager Jason and davesh . they are about 27 and cannot manage this place. overall avoid this place if your trying to have a birthday celebration , you will be disappointed

We came here on a Saturday Night, where the back end of this place has more of a lounge vibe, as opposed to the front (which is just sit yourself and eat). The DJ was spinning some awesome HipHop Music...We had a cesear salad which was yummy. The Traditional Pop Burgers (4 mini burgers) were also great! and my favorite were the Lobster Roll sandwiches...you get 4 mini Briosch rolls filled with a lobster salad...delish!!
The vibe and atmosphere is great...I would love to go back and stay for the bar scene as well!

I've heard of this place for a while but have never been there. I haven't had so much fun since college. The foods delicious believe it or not the lamb chops are amazing. Service was prompt and courteous and the drink selection is nice (i don't see many bars with blanton's bourbon) the cocktail list has something for everybody. And last but not least the crowd was upbeat and fun i'm pretty sure i'd do all of them. i liked it...I liked it a lot

Pop Burger is the place to be when it comes to a good atmosphere and great food. The food, especially the Fillet and the Steak were in its self amazing. I left there feeling full and satisfied. I say go for it if you're looking for a place to have great food and a great place.

I went to Pop burger with a few friends, and we had a great time. We tried their special cocktails and they were very tasty. We also had the pop burger and some fries, everything was great, obviously this not a 3 stars restaurant but it s a great spot to chill, have a drink and a small bite. I was surprise to see so many negative reviews about the place. Do not forget that this is Manhattan, and everything might seems over priced. If you want to experience great cocktails and don t mind to pay $15 for 3 burgers go for it. Pop is a cool place.

AVOID THIS PLACE: The prices in this place are so overpriced its incredible. 3 white castle burgers for 15 dollars! and it doesn't even come with fries! 5 mozz sticks, 13 dollars! The server was very dude, probably because she was embarrassed that she has to explain to her guests every night that those 3 mirco burgers were 5 dollars each and you get no sides. beers are 8 dollars +. Eating there was an expenisive lesson learned. I will remember to check city search before I got out next time.

$5.00 for two hockey pucks, $2.75 for a coke, rude, slow service. Kinda place I want to spend my money. Do not waste your time. If you want a burger go anywhere else.

The adorable size of these burgers don't do them justice because each one is jam packed with superior flavor. Every bite is delicious and I never wanted it to end. A box of two mini burgers plus fries is filling and left me very happy!

After a late night of drinking, Pop Burger is the ideal place to go! It's addicting and probably bad for your health, but their portions are small so you don't feel too guilty eating it. Everything's good there! If you're a fan of White Castle, you'll love Pop Burger cause it's ten times better! It's just another example of your usual trendy nyc eatery in the Meat Packing District where you'll enjoy the food as much as you'll enjoy people watching.

Cons: Extremely Claustrophobic

the drinks were pricey, more than the food. the menu options are limited, but it's basically fast food. this place was fun. the food was average, but visually pleasing. our server was a hottie, and very attentive. the lounge and pool table areas are great for hanging with friends. a great casual spot with a little splash of interest and no craziness.

The service is rude, the place has bad decoration, and the food is heavy (especially the fries). For the quality of food, variety on the menu and attitude of the service, it is definitely overpriced.

I went to the lounge with some friends and a great time. Our server was gorgeous and great. the drinks are fun and the burgers are fine for a burger. I would go here for perfect service or excellent food, just a good time. Anyone who goes in there and expects amazing everything needs to get their head checked its a fun bar at night come on. Have fun and be cool to your server and they will be cool to you =)

I WOULD NOT EVEN RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO MY WORST ENEMY (if i had any). I was traumatized on how vulgar/foul was the service in this place & how high-priced this disgusting food was. i was celebrating a friends 30th birthday, my friend order a plain pop hamburgers w/ no cheese ( 3 high-priced miniature burgers for $15.00, smaller than white castles burgers) the order was wrong; not once, but twice. The waitress refused to exchange or remove the order from the bill & charged us 18% percent group service fee. We all ordered separately & 1 order included in the bill was from a couple we met @ the venue. We had a new waitress & she refused to separate the bills. We finally spoke W/ a manager, which covered the credit for the hamburger, separated the bill, but divided the 18% service charge to each bill. The couple we met handed the bills total w/out the service fee. The waitress got upset & exchange words w/ the couple & hell broke loose. The waitress bluntly said "if you guys did not want to F*#@ pay a service charge you should had order from Mcdonald" ( no lie! i witness it myself) they were upset & left w/out paying the bill. We ignore the situation paid our bills. to finalized the story, we had a cake for my friend , we asked for a knife to cut the cake (which we never received), but what we did received was a bill of $30.00 for the knife (kid me not! they where charging us for the knife lol).. So, if you want a night of wrong orders, insults & high-priced food w/ terrible service POP BURGER is highly recommended... Enjoy

I was so excited when I heard that Pop Burger was opening on 58th St but I went there once and now will never go back. The burgers are OK (nowhere near the quality of Goodburger), but more importantly I was horrified to see that the person who is handling the burger is also the one picking up the garbage. I saw with my own eyes the server pick up the trash can with all these cruddy food bits hanging over it and with those same hands pick up my burgers to pack them up - no changing his gloves in between! Clearly basic hygiene is not a priority here, go elsewhere unless you want to risk ingesting some bacteria along with your burger.

I went there last Saturday and I asked for a table for 8 people at 11pm in the lounge area. Since one of my friends was late we decide to start ordering food and drinks.
As the place comes to a kind of club late during weekends there were like a 20 people cue to go in when my friend arrived.
I went to the manager and politely made him know that my friend was late and already had his food in the table , and asked him to let him pass before the other people awaiting to go into the club scene.
He was very rude with me, and told me that my friend must wait even he is has his food in the table and was the 8th of my 8 people table. I insisted, and he replied saying that "if I want to fight, it would be worst for him to go in".
Then, I came back to the table, explained the situation to my friends, left food and beverages in the table, paid the bill and went to spotted pig, where food is great and managers are not gangsters.
By the way, food is average.

Too much hype has been surrounding this joint. Today, I tried the food at the midtown location on 58th Street, and am not impressed. First, the burgers, while charred on the outside, are raw on the inside. Not a pleasant experience if you do not like medium rare meat. And nowhere on the menu does it say they are prepared medium-rare. Second, they were not hot. I had barely paid my tab when my order was ready. Finally, the $4 fries tasted stale and like cardboard. When I brought that to, I assume, the manager's attention, they told me that the fries are frozen and that is why they taste like that. Lovely, for a $10, two mini warm/rare burgers and stale fries. Makes me wonder how they stay in business. Ladies and Gentlemen, I am sure you can do better for that price. Especially if you wanted fast food.

I love their little burgers. They might be little but they are tasty. I went there to chill in the lounge and ended up getting hungry after drinking. We ordered the little burgers and the fries. I loved the fries.

My tab came to $200 for two people (That's what you get for drinking alot :). The people are friendly, but the service was on the bad side. If they improve upon the service and lower the music a little, I think this bar would be a really good place to vist.

Also: This isn't really a burger place. It's more of a bar :)

Cons: Bad service

Wow! That's what I said when the $440 bill arrived for the 6 of us. $75 per person is not what I expect at a burger joint.

The service was laughably awful. Had to ask at least twice for every beer, and don't make the mistake of going to the bar if you have a "server". I was told by the oh so rude bartender that I would have to wait for my server to get my beer the next time. Our server seemed to have a difficult time with everything. The food order was messed up, and getting a drink took begging, and much follow up.

The food was ok, the beers were 8 bucks (Amstel Light), and then they automatically put the tip on the bill to make sure the waitress gets here undeserved tip.

Go somewhere else. This place is not worth the money.

I visited this place for the first time on a Thursday. i have to say it was horrible. First, all drinks are overpriced and small. Second, if you order food up front you cant bring it to the back lounge area. In order to eat in the lounge area you need to have wait service. Which obviously is more expensive as well as the food on the menu when you order in the lounge is more expensive. Complete scam. Now to my personnel experience there. I ordered a drink which cost $10. Then I went back for another and the bartender charged me $12. I asked why she charged me differently 45 minutes earlier, and she replied " she made a mistake", ..right. Anyway I paid for my drink and walked away and the bartender then yelled "F****** A*hole" to me! The whole place had an attitiude, was a complete rip-off, and very inexperienced professionally. Wouldnt even recommend this place to try out once. The staff and "rules" make it just another wannabe meatpacking, fake, and unenjoyable atmosphere. Good luck staying in business! STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE!!!!!

I had been to this place a couple of times previously, but just for drinks. Last night my friends and I decided to grab a burger at the counter. The burgers were amazing. A burger order is made up of two mini-burgers which are absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. I have had many burgers at many ?renowned? burger joints in the city and I think that this is my new favorite. Granted, the fries and onion rings are not the best, but it took quite a bit of convincing for my friends to get me to stop ordering more burgers and finally go inside.

I went here with a group of friends and none of us will ever go back!! The staff was not only rude but incompetent. The restaurant was empty so we sat in the front and placed our orders at the register. I ordered 2 drinks and 2 burgers which was repeated back to me and I put $1 and change in the tip jar. When my name was called and I went to pick up my order, there was only 1 drink. When I asked the staff behind the counter (who was not the same person who took my order), he was adamant that I only ordered the one drink although I paid for 2 even though IT WAS REPEATED BACK TO ME!!! Of course I wasn't provided a receipt so I said forget about it and ordered another drink and added an order of fries. I then paid with a $20 and was only given change back for a $10. I immediately went back to the counter and after asking them to check the register was told I paid with a $10 even though I had just gone to an ATM and only had 5 - $20s and a $100 bill. Infuruated because not only did I tip these idiots but they were being so rude, I asked them to count the register and was told, "well, the register is under anyway." WTF??? The $35 I ended up spending for the 2 burgers, water and coke were so not worth it! I am so disgusted with the level of service I received I will never go back and will tell all my friends to avoid this place!

The restaurant was empty so we sat in the front and placed our orders at the register. I ordered 2 drinks and 2 burgers which was repeated back to me and I put $1 and change in the tip jar. When my name was called and I went to pick up my order, there was only 1 drink. When I asked the staff behind the counter (who was not the same person who took my order), he was adamant that I only ordered the one drink although I paid for 2 even though IT WAS REPEATED BACK TO ME!!! Of course I wasn't provided a receipt so I said forget about it and ordered another drink and added an order of fries. I then paid with a $20 and was only given change back for a $10. I immediately went back to the counter and after asking them to check the register was told I paid with a $10 even though I had just gone to an ATM and only had 5 - $20s and a $100 bill. Infuruated because not only did I tip these idiots but they were being so rude, I asked them to count the register and was told, "well, the register is under anyway." WTF??? The $35 I ended up spending for the 2 burgers, water and coke were so not worth it! I am so disgusted with the level of service I received I will never go back and will tell all my friends to avoid this place!

Pros: Fast

Cons: Staff, Staff, Staff

Perhaps I should have gone to POP Burger when it was still an "it" spot, or maybe on any other day but a rainy Sunday. The lounge and counter area were dead, but I was fine with that (no "scene" no competition for seating, etc). Cocktails are pricey $12 but worth it. I ordered the Pink Panty Pull Down, a mix of vanilla vodka, grenandine and something else. Tasted like candy. Was so delish I ordered two, against my better judgement. My boyfriend and I skipped the pricey lounge menu and moved up to the counter area where three employees talked all night about wanting to go home. We ordered the signature POP Burgers - two minis for $5 (cute for the eyes, and good quality meat), two hot dogs for $5 (regular sized beef hot dogs with saurkraut, a real bargain and satisfied my munchie cravingsl), fries, onion rings, and a strawberry shake. All the food was served either room temperature or cold (onion rings were in the "I can taste the fat congealing" phase). The shake was the best thing I had. Creamy, cold but not frozen, and made with fresh fruit. Down side to the burgers is that you end up ordering a second round just so you feel like you ate something! And the hot dogs didn't sit well with me the next day. Must have been an indication that the employees serve food that's been sitting out. Still and all I'd go back just because it's one of the last affordable eateries in the area with a good scene. I'm wary, though of what I'll be ordering the next time I go.

Pros: better than going to McDonald's, prettier too!

Cons: food was room temp or cold, service was shoddy

I went to PopBurger last night for the first time. I met my roomie there around 6:45pm and immediately got a table in the back "lounge" area. The drinks were 1/2 off and the mini burgers were SOOOO good! They were juicy, not greasy and were fantastic. My onion rings were tasty as well...though I still think Burger King has the best onion rings. The waitress though attentive was truly boring, but she was nice. The music and videos were great and we had a good time. 3 rounds of drinks, mini burgers and onions rings and the bill was only $61.00!

I will def go back again!

If you are going to spend $30 for a burger, fries and coke you would expect it to be of good quality, this was not. You could not even suggest to have it cooked a certain way, it tasted like McDonalds but 10X more expensive. After reading the reviews, I notice that I am not the only one who feels this way. A waste of money, REALLY!

It's 11:50pm on New Year's Eve. I arrive at this bar/lounge/burger joint with 10 friends to watch the ball drop and have a few drinks. The bouncer asked us what party we were there for. We said we were not with a party. He looked at us with a blank stare for 20 seconds. The place was far from packed. It actually looked on the empty side. I then asked him if he was going to let us in since we only have 10 minutes to go. I was not rude or confrontational. The bouncer flipped out and said there's no chance of us getting in. We turned right around and spent a good deal of money at the bar next door.

Let me remind you please...it's a bar in the back of a BURGER JOINT. When will NYC bar owners finally learn that hiring the wrong people to work the door costs them revenue and a positive reputation in a very nightlife-competitive city? And considering how empty it was, the word must have gotten out. From reading the other posts on this site...this bar's owners have not listened to their customers (and potential customers) advice. Again...it's a BURGER JOINT. Save yourself the trouble...go somewhere else.

Just went to the counter out front for the sliders and boy, were they adorable. I asked for medium rare, feeling a bit dubious that it would matter how I wanted it cooked. burgers were cute, alright, but the patties were slightly overcooked and the buns were a bit too dense compared to the rest of the sliders. I liked that they held their own but you could hardly enjoy the burger when all you can taste when you bite into it is this thick piece of bread. Music was good. Vibe was very relaxed so ambience was good but burgers were just ok. May be good for the late night bar-hoppers who crave for a snack. Fries were too greasy.

Not a bad spot at all to start your night if you are perusing the "crowded" Meat Packing District. Good spot for a group celebration or casual drinks if you got it like that.

Went there for lunch just before the 1pm rush. Service was ok, onion rings were AWESOME. Burgers were good, but the ones at the original Pop restaurant are better. I think these came sans special sauce and that could be it.

I read a view of the reviews and was surprised at them. The food was great and our waiter was extremely nice. I would definitely go there again. It's a change from going to a regular diner.

Ask the coked-up black bald bouncer whether they have a first-aid kit, and he will likely accuse you of doing the damage yourself and yelling for the cops for disturbance of peace on your behalf (scared white chick in a mini-skirt who cut her finger on the dysfunctional bathroom door). Ask the spikey-haired multiple-pierced white what-was-he-there-for-in-the-first place bouncer for a band-aid, and he'll give you a nasty rant (with plenty of explentatives) about what an incovenience it is for him to go around the block to assist your minor first-aid emergency at this club...okay, but it was POP BURGER's door that caused the *minor* cut that gushed the natural, red liquid all over the lavatories. All that was needed was a simple band-aid, and yet the staff seemed completely incompetent to comprehend and realize this request (which is, after all, the LAW). Although the manager was understanding, the dry food isn't worth the attitude, and neither is the location...get pizza/steak frites/deli food instead of waiting for this piece of disgusting lard which has the life-juice of patrons gushing all over its delivery. seriously.

I've been to White Castle, I've had their sliders while sober, I've had their sliders while drunk--You, Mr. Pop Burger--with your dried out hockey puck burgers slathered with special sauce (mystery mayo), are no White Castle. F-.

You don't know what your talking about. Pop Burger is awful.
Most of time the chef would send bussers to Western beef to buy "ground meat", not ground beef, lol. never buy booze here, the bar marries top shelf (like grey goose) with well (crystal palace).Many of the sauces sit in the basement for hours on end with no cover-ON THE FLOOR....buggies, rodents, yep! The mushroom burger is ok though, lol.

Heard about how great this place was but once I took a bite of my glorified overcooked white castle burger I realized that people aren't going here to get good food, they're going for a created hipster "scene" thats a safe haven for all the late night bridge-and-tunnel drunks coming back from the clubs in the area. These tiny over-priced burgers are served blackened whether you specify or not. It tasted like they cooked up an old tire and put it between two pieces of fancy bread. I guess people are too wasted to tell the difference. Don't be fooled by the people who tell you this place is good. If you were coming back from one of the clubs or you work near the place your opinions are obviously skewed. If you want a fantastic burger make a trip to madison square park to Shake Shack, a better burger.

Dam ok Bite for Bite Pop Burger is def one of my favorite burgers in NYC. For 5 bucks
you get 2 mini burgers with lettuce and a plum tomato slice. I think a lot of people just pass over this place as a novelty Oh you mean the mini burger dance club but if these puppies where full sized I am sure they would be on most peoples favorite list. The Quality of these burgers is top notch. The size is the only thing they have in common with White Castle (well other than hitting the spot after a night of partying or riding a cheetah across the woods of NJ)

While its not as model clad or posh as some of its neighborsthe last time I checked you couldnt get a plate of awesome burgers with your Grey Goose bottle at Hiro.

This place was cracking. It was perfectly crowded with a young and hot crowd. The musice wasn't unorigional and the servers were fine. Drinks werent overpriced and the food was perfect for the moment. No more late night deli stops after the clubs. This place has it all, and its a guaranteed good time.

This is an Amazing restaurant/bar to eat at for the younger & older generation. The service could have been better but overall its a fantastic spot to unwind. After 11 the crowd slowly starts to grow & there Flirtini is a great drink but be careful it will catch up to you. This is def a great recommendation for a date.

It's all about the small burgers and the special sauce! This Pop burger is one of the only ones that has it. I like it better than the one in union Square. I also recommend the onion rings, which remind me of the ones I ate in school. Cafeteria style, but sooo yummy. Oh, and it must have one of the best "scenes" of any burger joint.

PROS: The Scene, the food
CONS: sometimes it can take a while for food.

The mini PoP burgers are just the right size coming two in a box and the other diner classics are just as tasty! The lounge menu is to die for, especially the lobster nachos and calamari! Not only is the food amazing, but the staff is hot and quick and the atmosphere is swanky with a rock and roll vibe! The music is great and the decor is not the only eye candy to enjoy!

This place is ok......extremely trendy, but mostly filled with the bridge and tunnel crowd that seems to be ever-present in the meatpacking district. Drinks are over priced but then again, drinks cost a lot practically everywhere in NYC. Staff is very rude and a kind of odd looking and look out of place in their trendy surroundings.

One of the few restaurants in the Meatpacking District that doesn't try to please absolutely everyone, Pop Burger is an often-packed all-hours burger joint and lounge. There is a dark space in the back for those who want to park themselves…
