While my husband and I were on vacation in NYC from Australia we are at a restaurant who told us their food was Celiac free. I suffer from Celiac disease. We walked into Bill's Bar and Burger in Rockefeller Plaza and the host Jade greeted us. We asked to speak to the Chef and she escorted us to, Chef Learnel. We asked him if the burgers were Celiac free. I explained to Chef Learnel that I am extremely allergic to Celiac made products. Chef Learnel explained all the burgers were specially made and had no Additives or MSG. He completely assured me that my health would not be in any harm. He went on to say that he would personally cook the food for my husband and I. The food was delivered it was absolutely amazing!!!! We thanked Chef Learnel from the bottom of our hearts before leaving. We will definitely re-visit this establishment in the future.

Save your money and go to Wendy's. You'll get faster/nicer service and a better burger too.

Service was efficient

Let me start with the price, for midtown, it's reasonably priced. But for burgers that don't come with any sides, you can find better elsewhere.

I felt the roasted tomato soup was too salty, the boneless chicken wings were decent but the warm spinach & artichoke dip was quite good.

I tried the Mini B's (3 sliders) and was unimpressed. There was supopse to be ""special sauce"" on it but I wasn't sure where it was between the ktechup and the mustard that was smeared into the bun. If anything, the taste of the sliders reminded me of White Castle burgers.

I ordered a side of small house salad, totally was not worth the $4.75 price.

My drink of choice was the coffee shake. It was good and I was given the extra shake portion that resulted from making my shake. At least they don't waste food.

Bills Bar and Burger, midtown- DONT GO!!!

Horrible, to say the least. packed, waited for 35 minutes on a Thursday night. server was great, food was bland, tasted like a Wendy's burger. Met the GM?? Michael I think, def has a ""Napoleon complex"" to go along with just the wrong attitude for a Burger Joint, thats what it is, get over it M!! ITS A BURGER JOINT, not Peter Luger's!! Service was fine, no problems there. Just seems management has a big attitude for a burger place, maybe because the inside is big?? Whatever the reason, not worth the time or effort.

Pleasantly Surprised

I'm a native New Yorker who DESPISES going to midtown. Any area that serves mainly tourists is a nightmare - in my opinion. SO, when I had friends in from out of town who needed to be in the Rockefeller Center area for dinner because they were waiting for tickets to SNL, I was stumped as to where to go. Looked around a bit online and came across this place.

I have to admit that I thought it was one of the best values I've experienced in Manhattan. We had burgers and drinks and everything was delicious and fairly priced. I like that they have 5 oz. burgers - it was just enough food (they have larger options if you want that). The drinks were well made and the service was professional, courteous, and just the right amount of attentive. With at least 2 drinks a person, a burger for each of us, an app, and 1 dessert, it came to about $40 a person. Very reasonable IMO.

I will definitely be back if I need to be in that area.
