Accommodating and good food

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.

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.

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

Visited after work for a quick meal but was not impressed with the experience. The restaurant itself is very dark and in need of a refurbishment. I had the chilli for main but it was bland and unsatisfying. We left without desert, even though we were still hungry.

The whole place could do with a good clean judging by the dried on tomato sauce still smeared across a wooden partition, the booths are small and cramped, there was not enough room to eat and we went with two adults and two kids both under 7. The food was way below average, a dry "half pound" burger with luke... More

I recently visited Captain Americas! I couldn't fault anything, service was friendly and polite. I ordered the ribs and must say they are still the best in Norwich by far! My friend had the half pound deluxe burger with bacon and fries she said it was the best burger she's eaten in a long time. Milkshakes are amazing, i had... More

Dropped in for lunch today, on first glance the restaurant is tired! It needs a little TLC, perhaps with all the competition now from other American style diners they have given up? Only one server on but only three tables including us at 1pm? The food was good, both of us had burgers, mine was covered in BBQ sauce with... More
