One would never suspect that the food looks good based on the outside. Quite kitsch with old school decorating, bringing back 80's, 90's and 00's memories! The menu is based on celebrities, with a wide variety of choice. You can choose to have beef or chicken or a veggie burger as the 'meat' part, with the option of a gluten... More

Don't be put off by the outside or location of this restaurant......its' one of the coolest places to eat in Oxford. Burgers to die for; all with celebrity names and a huge choice. Order the marshmallows for dessert...........you toast them yourself!

After a hard day slogging round the Ashmolean this little gem of a restaurant on Cowley Road offers fabulous burgers and fries with great service at a reasonable price. Good choice of burgers and the Sci-Fries are superb. Check it out, you won't be disappointed!

I enjoyed my visit to Atomic Burger, the staff were really friendly and knew the menus inside out. The food itself was very nice (Big thumbs up to the Dolly Parton burger 👍) The atmosphere was relaxed and fun and took me back to my childhood with the decor and memorabilia on display, it would appear that a lot of...

This is probably the best burger I have tasted. Excellent beef cooked just right, good quality fries. They have a great variety of burgers which you can personalise, beef, chicken or veggie. A variety of fries are available. The sci-fis were excellent. Portion sizes are big. Service was excellent and very friendly. The place has eclectic and funky decorations. Suggest... More

This place is tiny & usually full but does the best burgers I have had in a long time. The burger was awesome, the bacon was out of this world, the blue cheese was fabulous & even the bun was great! I mean... when was the last time you had a burger in a restaurant where the *bun* was great?!... More

We have been to Atomic Burger many many times, and returned recently on a trip back to Oxford. Still delicious as ever! Great veggie burgers.

We ate in Atomic burger in sprint 2014 - absolutely loved it. The decor is fantastic, didnt know where to look next! Staff were very friendly, every inch of floor space is used and it does feel cozy - but it's all part of the fun. Menu is great - we ordered far too much as it all sounds so... More

As a Cowley Rd resident, I'm spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out, but I just can't get enough of Atomic Burger. I love the ambience, the friendly service, the lush burgers and hand-made sides, the breakfasts, the shakes, the decor, the wallpaper in the loos, the outdoor seats…. It's just the best restaurant in East Oxford hands... More

So I took my family for a burger on a sodden bank holiday Monday to the AB after hearing about the burgers. On entering the small bijou restaurant (which uses the old mirror on one wall trick to make it appear much larger than it actually is), we were politely met by the waiting staff and seated at our pre...
