We went here for breakfast and man they were SO busy. Mostly police & construction workers coming in for breakfast. You order your food at the counter then take it to a table and eat when its done. It's reasonably priced and we would go agian. I liked my food and the coffee was good too

My wife and I popped in to grab some drinks on our way to the 9/11 memorial. As they had a minimum spend for card transactions we decided to grab a chicken fajita melt which was very good.

Nothing too fancy, cheek by jowl seating but for burgers, fries, fajitas etc, perfectly acceptable, and these guys were 9/11 heroes too, so they get my patronage just for that!!

We were in New York and in the WTC area and wanted something to eat. We happened to walk right by the place and decided to try it out. We had the Philly Cheese Steak and our friend had the cheesecake and croissant. The cheese steak is out of this world. Really good and the cheesecake is to die for. What was interesting was that after we arrived a large group of people came in with their guide. It turns out that this was one of the places during 9/11 that helped take care of people and feed them. There are photos all over the wall of the firemen and other service workers who lost their lives and those who came to them for shelter. We got to speak with several people whose loved ones had died on that day and it was a very upbeat place. So glad we went in because the food was very good and it has special meaning in the history of the US. We will go back whenever we are in the area just because the food was so good.

Atmosphere of a real NYC busy day. Junior is the best!!! Gets you in, orders, brings the food and everyone is happy. Wanted to eat here as they were one of the first to open up and serve after the 9/11 terrorist attack.
