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...

It's sometimes the case that novelty restaurants can be more about the 'experience' than the actual food. The fantastic thing about Atomic Burger is that there's substance behind the décor. You walk in to what is effectively a sci-fi geek's bedroom, with memorabilia adorning the walls and ceiling. There’s music playing in the background from 80’s hits to sci-fi theme... More

Visited at 6 on Monday evening and had to book a table it is so popular! Great fun inside with lots of toys decorating the restaurant and 80s videos on the big screen. Friendly and efficient young staff, interesting and different menu, we had burgers with different filings (called Dead Elvis and The Blues Brothers) and sweet potato and regular... More

Pick your burger or hot dog from a colourful menu where the items are given names referencing figures from pop culture - such as Dolly Parton (double stacked) or the Jake and Elwood burger, with blue cheese, fried onions and bacon. Fun surroundings, a lively clientele and a good value range of unusual options, such as toasting your own marshmallows... More

I am in Oxford for few weeks and this is my 2nd visit to the Atomic Burger. I love my "taxi driver" and my "hot fries", they are amazing. I will recommend everyone to visit this place.

I was only in here last night after being in their sister restaurant Atomic Pizza the night before. Firstly this place is a visual storm of Sci Fi, old TV and film toys, models and...well it's just amazing. The amount of burgers and variations of topping was astounding. The staff were really friendly and really cared about the food and... More
