We read about this place before visiting Oxford and couldn't wait to give it a try. We were not disappointed. Huge 'proper' American style burgers with some very imaginative toppings! If we had been staying another night we would have returned. We didn't make reservations and literally got the last table. Lots of people were turned away after we sat... More

A huge choice of burgers, took us ages to decide what to get, and for a great price and quality. Having lived in London for 3 years we are used to good burgers being on every corner, but not for the prices they are here! The decor and music is a real treat, sending one back into childhood (or else... More

First tip - book a table, it's small and normally packed. Second tip - unless you're really hungry or are used to having massive things in your mouth, don't be tempted to go for a double burger (although the kids tried and succeeded). The burgers were absolutely delicious, and really good value too (£60 for five of us).

Been eating here for a couple of years now after initially finding it via an interweb search thingy. There are a great many different burgers you can order, so every taste is catered for. Plenty of sides, enough to sink a battleship. You can even have a veggie or chicken alternative to your burger. The portions are quite good value... More

Sadly we were more than twice the age of anyone else in the restaurant but that's my problem. I loved eating here. The atmosphere was fun, Star Wars, trek, clangers, Simpsons all hiding around the place. Fantastic buzz, nice staff. I had to order off menu as I'd forgotten to take my specs (age issues again). We drank a largeritta... More

Went to visit a friend in Oxford and he had had this place recommended to him, when we drove past I was a bit skeptical from how it looked from the outside. But boy did I learn never to judge a book by it's cover! There's so many different types of burgers to choose from there is literally one for... More

The quirkiest tastiest burger place ever. This restaurant is perfect for everyone it has so many options. Being able to have practically anything on a burger is a great idea and the food is amazing. Quirky and fun - overall a really good experience for dinner.

5 of us had booked, had heard fab things and weren't disappointed. Decor, staff, food all such an experience. As the oldie of the group (54) it's everything a burger place should be. Great food and memory trips, great music too. Loyalty program is fun. The food was fresh well thought out and reasonable and do plentiful even the 'boys'... More

If you are over 25, have an aversion to noise, hate burgers and don't particularly want to be reminded of tacky TV shows of the past with tackier memorabilia hanging like plastic bats from the fairy light-festooned ceiling, this is probably not the place for you. But strangely, although all these things apply to me, I still like the place.... More

There's a great range of burgers here - on the fun rather than the gourmet side. Think burger topped with meatballs and American cheese sauce on a bagel (The Big Tone). That's not to say it isn't really delicious, the burgers here are very good quality and you don't leave hungry. The restaurant is full of retro- and sci-fi goodies... More
