Popped into Atomic Burger for my 1st visit this evening. Was on a quick break from work and had a take out burger. As standard burgers are cooked to a medium level, in hindsight I should have asked it to be well done was a bit too pink for my liking. Nonetheless it was a good freshly made burger and... More

I took one of my boys (age 5) here recently and we had a great time. The decoration is wonderful, characters from films and cartoons across the years and we had a wonderful time spotting them! You could literally spend hours doing this! The food was excellent too, freshly cooked and proper, home made, burgers. I had the Dolly Parton... More

Great selection of fantastic burgers and related foods. Always appears busy so booking is advised. Had to eat elsewhere on a few different attempted visits.

This was the place that I used to rave about to all my friends . It used to be a small quirky independent that treated all its customers with friends and delivered great food . Apart from now finding it difficult to book a table , it is begining to get a more commercialised feel with corners being cut in... More

brilliant, very nice food and service. If you're going on your birthday you will eat for free. And the decoration is very funny

Fries (an expensive upgrade) were cold and were sent back. After I'd eaten half the burger - nice but again barely warm they were returned - same ones, not a fresh bowl. That's poor. Very poor. "They're as hot as we can get them" I was told, lamely... They'd been put in an oven I'd guess. Warmer, yes but still... More

From the moment you enter the restaurant, especially if you're a child of the 80s, you'll be excitedly pointing out all the cult TV and film toys that decorate the interior. Surrounded with Gremlins, Star Wars, Dr Who and even Zig and Zag, and playing 80s/90s anthems and TV intros, you find yourself in a fun and quirky place. We... More

Great burgers, reasonable prices and a good atmosphere. We ordered the Chuck Norris burger with Trailer Park Fries and the tex mex burger (can't remember the name) with garlic and chili fries, it was all really tasty. And creds for the quirky decor! I'm definitely coming back.

Having been recommended the Atomic Burger by friends in Oxford, I went to check it out only half an hour ago. We walked in to a relatively empty restaurant, being told to 'just wait there' by the member of staff. My friend and I walked over to an empty table (on which there was no reserved sign) which seemed to... More

The place is really nice, with a young atmosphere and the service is really good. There is an ample choice of burger toppings to choose from and they are usually very good, but unfortunately the meat patty is not very big nor juicy, and for a place called Atomic Burger this is a problem..
