“Great burgers”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Location is confusing especially if you're using Google maps! We're Australian and have never heard of Fred Segal...it's a badly advertised department store. Umami burger is at the back of the store. We persevered as it was recommended by local friends.

Definitely worth looking for as the burgers were very tasty. We had the classic and a truffle burger. They're not huge which was great for us. Perfect size really! Add the sweet potato fries and it equals a great lunch.

“Great burgers!”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

Try the tater tots - they're not on the menu. They are seasoned with tangy cheese, and come 6 to an order - they're huge, and tasty.

“Amazing burgers!!”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

I probably only eat 2 hamburgers a year, but this place was so good that we went 2 days in a row!!
I had the classic burger which had a piece of baked parmesan cheese on top and an incredibly soft bun. Others in our group tried burgers with bacon and eggs on top. There were alot to choose from including a turkey and a veggie burger. The sweet potato fries were very popular too. The ketchup must be homemade because even that was delicious!
We sat outside both times, but the indoor seating was nice too.
The perfect place to stop for a quick lunch if you're in the mood for a yummy hamburger!

“Awsome”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

We had 3 burgers here, all three are excuisite: good meat, done to perfection, very good garnishing. Took some Spanish verdejo wine, at 8 usd a glass not cheap but very good wine.
The service is informal and very friendly. Nice laid back vibe.
The only trouble was finding the restaurant - it is not exactly on 500 Broadway but 50 meters aside..
