About Us

“A New York Landmark”

JG Melon in the West Village and Upper West Side are the two newest outposts of the old school burger joint, made famous on the East Side of NYC. We have a simple menu focused on our iconic burger and cottage fries. We also offer desserts by the famous Magnolia Bakery.

In keeping with the original theme, both locations are decorated with a watermelon motif and green checkered table cloths. There is a charming, comfortable vibe that is also family friendly. We are not into gimmicks, just old-school great burgers.
