Sometimes you can be surprised, even by a Greek diner. Chef whoeverapopolis serves a mean buffalo burger and takes care to cook his burgers just so. If it weren’t for the fact that the booths were built for some sort of midget freaks, the UPR would make for an overall pleasant dining experience. Although, in the Union Square/NYU area, it is difficult to find cheap, good sit-down service food. So, if you don’t mind sitting in your seat like you’ve got a halo and a steel rod in your back, enjoy the perfectly well done fries and try to pretend your waiter with the huge walrus mustache isn’t really sweating as badly as it looks.
