Don't be fooled by the "flame broiled burger scam" . Burgers are best fried on a flat grill surface where they stay moist and juicy, just as they do it at Paul's. Unlike other joints, there really is a Paul, he is a great guy who will lead you to burger nirvana. Go once and you will never eat burgers anywhere else!

Pros: friendly, great burger, fun area

Cons: small, tough parking, ordinary fries

.

Paul's is by far the best burger joint in the city. I've since, taken my girlfriend there, friends and family and they all agree. Paul's is the best. The best part is that they will custom make any burger if it's not on the menu. And they know the difference between Medium, Rare and Well-done! Go there on an empty stomach. This stuff is what America is all about.

Pros: Knowledge, Taste, atmosphere

Cons: Bathroom, Space, beerchoices

Burgers are great, good choice of sides. Service is sometimes slow but worth the wait. Four to Five people can eat for the price of 2 in any other place.
And they have Philly Chessesteaks!!!!

this place rocks. there are smaller sized tables so it is best for 1-4 people, really the best for 2 going to eat together. However there is stuff flying back and forth across the ceilings, great smells, and oh the anticipation of your burger. I am not sure how they do it, or why it is so different, but these burgers are unbelievable. cooked so well, but they stay "soft" somehow. just amazing. the only other place even close in nyc is corner bistro.

beef, grease, no-frills bun. What more could one need? Sweet potato fries are a nice addition.

This is the best red meat on the face of the planet, I swear. I grew up in the midwest, and NEVER had a burger this good. If I lived near Pauls I would accept the fact I'm dying of a heart attack before 30.

I recently ate at Paul's burger palace and I must say the burgers were a good as sex! It was juicy, the buns were soft and squishy, the onions and tomotos were sliced thin...OOOO...OOOOOOO....OOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I've tried them all and this is best I've had.

Without a doubt, the Absolute Best and Tastiest Burgers in New York! Go ahead and go to the other places on this list (I have), and you will still wind up coming back to Paul's. The Burgers are just too good to pass up, and it's a fun place to eat.
If you're hungry, and NOT on a diet, then there is no other place to eat a Great Tasting Burger than Paul's. My Favorite is the Very Juicy Bacon Burger smothered with Fried Onions and Cheddar Cheese!
Not only will the burgers blow you away, but the service at Paul's is downright Friendly and Sincere.
Just ask all the Police Officers, Fire Fighters, EMS Techs, Eclectic Locals and Tourists that you will find committing the Sin of Gluttony there.
You simply WILL NOT FIND a better burger, Period!

I used to work across the street from Paul's in 1989 and that's how we discovered the place. We live in Jersey now, but whenever we have a chance, we would go and eat the burgers at Paul's. Very tasty, huge burgers, great atmosphere. NEO...

Juicy burgers bulging out of hearty buns...excellent fries and cold beer. Very reasonable prices. PLUS all those great, whimsical characters buzzing around the place that keep my 2-year-old daughter occupied throughout the meal. This place is paradise!

Man, just reading the reviews about Paul's is making me hungry. I stop in there a couple times a month and gorge myself on the City's biggest and best burgers. Needless to say, I have to crawl home more often than not, but I guess that's the price you pay for eating one of those masterpieces from paul's...

If you are looking for a damn good burger Paul's is the place. They have a wide variety of choices and all toppings are served in abundance. The decor reminds me of a roadside diner along Route 66. This place is for all types, from trendy NYU'ers to sports lovers - games are always on.

Quality of meat is good enough to eat as tartar. Burgers any way you like it. The best toppings with fries to match. Definitely the best burger there is!

It's hard to find burgers where you get what you ask for. Paul's is one of those few places where you get a medium-rare when you ask for medium rare.
Milkshakes are pretty darn good, too.
Waitstaff is awfully friendly.
