For my twenty-fourth Turnstile NYC Thursday, and to help celebrate Cinco de Mayo, I am going to write about a great place to go eat for todays Cinco de Mayo festivities. I am going to choose a place, that is not in New York City, but rather in Brooklyn, at the base of the Manhattan Bridge. I am going to write about the world famous Junior's Restaurant. (If you didn't understand that that was sarcasm, I am sorry, but it's too late for you.)
Since there are no interesting Spanish places to go and visit in the city, I had to choose another option, and what is honestly better, and than some nice Junior's. Junior's is an old school diner, that is right across the street from Atlantic Terminal, and is right down the block from the base of the Manhattan Bridge.
It has a real Brooklyn feel too it. When you walk in, the walls are decorated in pictures of older Brooklyn, newspaper articles from this restaurants over 60 year history, like the Brooklyn Dodgers still being here, and for course it is known all over the world, for its three main things, its excellent egg cream milkshakes, its great diner courses, and its killer Cheesecake.
First is the milkshakes. They are so smooth, and they taste so good. Now you can be weird and get those different and crazy flavors, but I am a plane jane guy, who just goes after Chocolate shakes, and in all of my years, I have never had a better Chocolate Shake, ever. They are insane, and I hope that you get to try one one day.
Second is the food. They have everything, and when I say everything, I mean everything. They have cheeseburgers, ribs, steaks, seafood, breakfast items, and so much more, all day long, and it is all good stuff to eat.
Then third, and most importantly, and probably most famously is their unbelievable Cheesecake. I always get the original, (don't judge), and I always enjoy it. I think that it is impossible to not enjoy the cheesecake from Junior's, not going to lie here.
Anyways, I hope that you check this place out, on your next trip to the city / Brooklyn. It is a great eatery, and I am sure that you will enjoy your food from here!
Have you ever eaten at Junior's before? Would you want to? If you have, what did you get there?
