Schnipper's Quality Kitchen Restaurant Review

: Jon and Andrew Schnipper sold their successful Hale & Hearty Soups chain and introduced this eponymous self-service chain serving good old-fashioned American diner food in a cafeteria-like setting. Their classic offerings include burgers, hot dogs, chicken, mac ‘n’ cheese, tacos, salads, fries, onion rings and shakes. Schnipper’s Classic burger is described as “our special cheese blend, caramelized onions, bacon, baby arugula, Schnipper sauce.” It’s something to rival Shake Shack’s lauded burger in Madison Square Park --- yet the lines are much shorter and move much quicker, for good measure. After ordering, they give you a number, and then bring the food to your table. Stop by if you’re looking for a quick place to get a bite that won’t break the bank. Wine and beer also available.
