This was a handy place for our first evening in Boston. We were sat straight down as most tables were empty. The beer was good as was the wine but the veggie burgers were a disappointment. Fries were extra, the bun was soggy, the salad...More

decent hamburgers, but for a basic burger at $15, they could at least include the french fries. I will not return..

We went to 5 Napkin on Saturday at lunch time. We asked for the season burger and the signature burger and both were good but the signature was even better. The decoration is cozy and cool. We had free French fries because we checked in...More

All I’ve been hearing are great things about 5 Napkin. The hype was that the burger is so succulent and loaded with luscious accessories that it requires five napkins to deal with the juicy runoff. It’s an irresistible notion that demands taking up the challenge...More
