“Great food!. I love the steak and onions plate. The pizza and the coffee are great. You feel like you are eating at home. At times in which 42nd street feels more and more like Disney World this place is a real true treasure.”

Acme Bar & Grill

 2 star(s)  (04/20/2008)
“Waste of money. I lived in New Orleans for nine years, so I believe I have a good sense of southern cooking. I can say that Acme is a poor rendition of southern food. The food was bland, and the restaurant was pretty dirty. I couldn't even finish my meal. It's pretty much a trap for unwitting NYU ... ”

“I had never been to Ashton's before last night. The experience was disappointing, the TV's were on, fans twirling at an outdoor temperature of below 32F. The restaurant is small, therefore the location of our table was in the open with a view of everybody entering the bar.The waitress did not ask o... ”
