Excellent Burgers and Value

We have eaten at Atomic Burger a number of times now and to be honest think it's great. The taste of the burgers and sides are 1st class and it is really good value. If you want a good burger and not some processed garbage from a big chain or the overly fancy rubbish sold in a lot of bistros... read more

It says open from 11:30-22:30 on Monday. So we walked there with a lot of expectation, but it's closed at 13:30...Disappointed. 饭店门牌上写开门时间十一点半到晚上十点半,但是我们一点半来吃饭根本就不开门。饥肠辘辘走了那么远。非常失望啊。。。

Firstly, I have known and been to Atomic burger for 7/8 years (in the old venue) and it used to be very good. The new venue has kept the decor but the standard of food has drastically dropped to merely average. In fact I would say that the burgers are only very slightly better than anything you can get in...

Sometimes too much variety is just too much, but not this time. With small changes the menu at Atomic Burger is made fun and finding just the right one for you is like an adventure: Do I want the Dolly Parton or should I go with the McLovin? But wait! There's the Jake n' Elwood! However, be careful when venturing... More

This was not the first time we've eaten at Atomic Burger and we've often raved about it and taken friends along telling them they must try THE BEST burgers in Oxford. However on our most recent visit, the four of us were shown to our table which was dirty and had chips and napkins on the floor. We ordered drinks... More

These burgers are the best I have had in a long time- and people I visited with will agree! The place itself is very cool and relaxed so definitely a great place to go with friends. You can chose and burger with beef, chicken or veggie which got a huge thumbs up from me! The sweet potato fries were also... More

Great menu choice and nice atmosphere and prices reasonable for the portion size. Food was good but both me and my partner had bad stomachs afterwards. Restaurant very busy so book to avoid disappointment

I wanted to also try the milkshakes but the burger i had was so big that i couldn't even think to get one. Very nice and... More

I have to say the food in both atomic pizza and atomic burger are really good. The burgers are typical American style burgers and each come with a side. Burgers are good in terms of size and I feel for the price you are paying the burgers are well worth it. I will have to say that for me going... More

Given the buzz around town, we decided to give this place a try. They have a wide range of choice for the burgers, but they seemed to excel mainly in peculiar combinations of the bigger is better variety. Burgers were OK, but nothing special.
