A bit of nostalgia, burgers need a brush up maybe

Captain Americas is where we used to go for birthday treats when I was a teenager. Also went there to celebrate the news that I was expecting my daughter and when my son was born at home on a Saturday afternoon, dinner that day was a Captain A's takeaway. Now that I am nearing 60 (can't quite... read more

I first visited Captain America's in the late 80s! There is no disputing that the burgers are scrummy and there are a variety of ways that you can have them, Sadly however.....as with most businesses over time, the salad trimmings have disappeared and the burgers look smaller (but the chip portion size is huge (to make up for this?)) Still... More

Is was going to be a farewell meal for a visiting American relative but proved to be a disaster. Drinks order was taken promptly, staff were friendly, the restaurant was clean and tidy but ... The food order was a different issue. When the food arrived that's where the problems started. One of the girls in our group has autism... More

Have been using this American style diner since the opening in the 1970's and in my opinion still the best value for money Burger Restaurant in Norwich.

Burger bar in true sense of the word. Big portions, served hot and with a smile. Environment slightly dark- would like more light. Have eaten better burgers but this generally ok.

I've been visiting Norwich for 15 years, and never knew this place existing until *after* my last visit last Christmas when a friend of mine recommended it. So, this time of visiting, we paid a visit. The inside of the restaurant is upstairs and is quite dark and filled with Americana. It reminds me of an OK Diner in terms... More

Popped in for a quick lunch, loved it! Fun and comically American decor, friendly staff, nice enough food. This isn't a high end smokehouse, but for a reasonable price you'd get a good burger. The menu was fairly simplistic, effectively the options are: burger, burger with cheese, burger bbq sauce. You'll enjoy it but it's not trying to be fancy... More
