Theater District recs with small children

My brother and his two under seven kids will be in town and want me to take them someplace for a quick snack after the Gazillion Bubble show. Any recs for kid-friendly places in the low 50's or upper 40's that are not complete tourist traps would be appreciated. I considered Ellen's Stardust, but they weren't so speedy last time I took people there.

  1. John's Pizza has an outpost on west 44th street. It's very spacious and great for kids!

    1. Kids like Vynl at 51st and 9th and there's decent enough food and drinks for adults.

        We went there after the bubble show with 4 adults and 4 kids and it was fine. As stated, decent enough...maybe even a little better.

      2. There's both a Five Napkin Burger and a Shake Shack in the west 40s. I'm sure the line at Shake Shack will be crazy as usual; but 5 Napkin Burger takes reservations.
