Description: Practice makes perfect...and burgers are no exception. The Bill’s burger evolved from countless tastings, recipes and lots of burger love. The result is a blend of three meats, smashed and cooked on a flattop griddle, served in an all-American seeded bun. It’s your reliable, made-to-order hamburger, plain and simple. While Bill’s flagship location in NYC’s Meatpacking District opened in 2009 as a small neighborhood joint, it quickly turned heads across the city and was followed by a 400-seat space at Rockefeller Center, the biggest standalone burger joint in the country, and a location ‘down the shore’ at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City. Regardless of size or stature, every burger served is made fresh daily. Grab a seat at the bar and select from a long list of craft brews. Bill’s has got some sweet treats, too, from hand-dipped milkshakes to decadent cupcakes.

“Great Sliders!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

The Bill's Bar & Burger at Rockefeller Center is a hotbed for tourists and corporates but for a reason. Crowded and a bit hectic but good American fare. My personal fave the sliders!

“Best burger in New York”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

I have to write a review on bill's

I think this is the best burger I have had in New York with the best sweet potatoes I have ever had,

My wife and my self where in New York for thanks given and we just happened to walk down by bill's and as we where feeling a little hungry we said why don't we given here a go,
I was the best thing we did, the burger was at good that we wanted to go back for dinner as well,

I had the fat cat burger with stake fries and my wife had the classic burger with sweet potatoes fries,

My wife said her strawberry milkshake was the best she had ever had,

The only down side of the was I got my food order be for my drink order and my drinks order was made 1st, must have been a lot of orders at the bar,


We will be back to bill's on our next trip to New York,

“Great food, atmosphere and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

We stumbled across this place by accident. Great that we did. We dined here on Thanksgiving evening and had such a great time.

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They couldn't do enough for you. Not bad considering they were rushed off their feet and could have been miffed about having to work on a holiday. They were all so cheerful.

Our food was amazing. Far better than we expected. We were not rushed through our meal and had the luxury of ordering as we went.

The bar has such a great atmosphere and definitely a place that you want to hang out in.

“A nice surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

While in line for the 9/11 memorial my son spotted the sign for Bill's and suggested we have dinner there. Being that it was Thanksgiving night we were overjoyed that they were open. We entered about 5pm after our 9/11 visit and we were promptly seated. Our waitress (Brett?) was very quick to greet us and take our order. We LOVED the burgers and fries and even saved room to share some cheesecake. While they did offer a traditional thanksgiving special dinner we are not turkey lovers. Our food arrived quicker than we could imagine and the prices were reasonable. The staff was very organized and professional. Thanks for working on the holiday to serve us on our mini vacation!!

“Great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

Found this great place while strolling around Rockefeller Centre. We were immediatley shown to our table and after a few minutes a very friendly waitress came to take our order. We had the Steak Tacos, a Burger, Cheesy fries and onion rings. Waited about 5minutes and our food came. It was delicious. We were both full but the waitress persuaded us to try a milkshake. We had the peanut butter and it was the best we've ever had. Great food, great atmosphere and at a great price.
