He returned about five minutes later, wearing a mask, and ordered a second hamburger, police said.

When the cashier opened the register, the man walked around the counter and took an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.

He walked from the restaurant, then headed east on Weidner Avenue in a black Honda with tape covering white New York State license plates, police said.

No injuries were reported, police said; four employees were in the restaurant at the time of the robbery.
