OMG, really good food and great atmosphere

I came here with my friend and have never looked at burgers the same since. Not only do they offer an incredible variety of burgers, salads, sides and shakes they also have some tasties for the vegetarians out there. The flavours and presentations of the food are on point, the atmosphere is super... read more

My wife and I love this place. We have been here at least a dozen times to date. Even if we just ate there it seems like its been too long since we have been there. When I have friends come from out of town I like to bring them here if we get the chance and all my friends... More

Best burger I've ever had!!! My husband and I went here with another couple for dinner and we all left feeling very satisfied. If you're looking for a romantic atmosphere than this isn't it. But what it is, is a very relaxed and casual place! Pay attention when ordering we had to flag our waiter down after ordering to tell... More

We like this place so much, we've been there twice, and we only ho to London when I have to visit my doctors! I need a place where they make gluten free food and this place delivers. Yummy burgers, filling fries and the milkshakes are to die for. Mucho yummy!

Cheat meal alert x1000! This place is unbelievably good. It has gluten free vegetarian options which is awesome. They got our meal wrong once and they gave us free milkshakes for our next visit - those are divine. I would have to say the nacho burger is the best. Definitely go with a huge appetite. I'm sure they could upgrade... More

My daughter really wanted to go here and I finally gave in. I'm not a meat eater and find many veggie burgers dry and unappealing. I was happy to see they also have wraps for vegetarians. The server was awesome, very friendly and funny. We started with the onion rings which are delicious. I ordered the screaming goat wrap and... More

by far one of the more unique restaurants in london, but the interior decor is incredibly tacky and not a nice environment to be in. The servers were very friendly and attentive. The burger selection is insane, and can literally cater to ANYbodys taste. The presentation of the meal, and even the drinks is just very unique. Not crazy about... More

2 words, POUTINE. BURGER! I was in heaven! Unique way to create and make your own burgers! Wide variety of toppings and sides. Such a great atmosphere also. The wife wasn't very happy with what she ordered. She was expecting a wrap and got a burger. I'm not sure what the menu said for hers, but I was under the... More

Went in on a Saturday with family. I was surprised to see how expensive the menu was. The server was busy, and was focused on the other tables; I had to repeat my order twice. My mixed green salad was made up of old wet greens and when I told the server, she seemed frustrated that she had to make... More

long ones but great food - had a big ben - ruben on a burger. My dinner partner had blue cheese burger - both had a beer and the bill was less than $40. Would definitely dine in again. Be prepared to wait in line but it is worth it
