My wife, daughter and myself had another great meal at Schnipper's. It is a favorite fast food restaurant in NYC and everyone in the city knows it. All the items we have sampled before and on this trip are excellent! The restaurant is always clean and neat. The servers are always friendly and helpful. We ordered their classic Sloppy Joe...

Just across from the Port Authority - it's a good spot for a Lunch. Lines are always huge, but it's always moving, and the prices are also NYC like. Fish & Chips - $10.50, Tuna Salad Sandwich - $8.99, Side Mixed Green Salad - $4.75. You will get a buzzer and the food will be brought to your table. Lastly... More

Excellent burger and other fats foods with high quality. Order at counter and they bring it to you. Coded door locks on rest rooms. Full menu but burgers are best. Plenty of seating. Right on corner of 8th one block south of Times Square

I first went to this restaurant when it had barely opened. It's in the ground level of the new New York Times building on the other side from Port Authority on Eighth Ave. Few blocks from Times Square. The menu is creative, sandwich oriented including hamburgers, fried chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, small salads, starters and soups, like mac and cheese... More

My wife an I found this place after an open-top bus tour at night. The line was short when we entered, but got long, then short again. I had the sloppy joe with mac n cheese (no bun). The meaty sloppy joe was SO good. And the 5-cheese mac-n-cheese was yummy and filling (took a lot home and had it... More

No matter whether you chose the sandwiches or the burgers you will probably not be disappointed. Great taste and a signature dressing accounts for a lot. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the food hall is bright and enviting although somewhat sparse. We enjoyed the food several times.

Don't let you scare of the first picture here at TA! We had a cesar salat with grilled chicken and a sandwish with grilled chicken. Both had a very high quality and freshly made. All in all we paid $24. Not bad for a super good dinner

We just needed a quick snack, takeout, before the theatre tonight. I had a hotdog with caramelised onions which was tasty. My wife had cheese fries which she enjoyed. Service was good and quick, food was nice. A good place to try.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
