Me and friend had a last minute gut feeling to try Atomic Burgers Fallout Challenge!! So made the journey from just outside of Witney to attempt it last Sunday (18/01/15) We hadn't booked and arrived around 5:30.. They were very polite and accommodating and we got a table about an hour later (which gave us time to go for a... More

As I'm not a burger lover or a geek I wasn't really looking forward to this outing but friends and family had been wanting to go for ages. When we entered the restaurant it was decorated with toys and wallpaper from the 80s, everywhere you looked there was a memory jogged by the decor. We were sat by a large... More

We went to Atomic Burger after a nice evening at the cinema. We had not booked but the waiter was very friendly and found us a table right away. The food was very good and plentiful. The place was fun and quirky. Old music videos and bizarre decor. The staff was helpful in directing our choices. My children were very... More

My partner had 3 amigos for starter whilst I had a coke. Wanted to save myself for dinner. I then had a 3... More

My son decided he wanted to go here for his birthday lunch after hearing from friends how good it was. We certainly weren't disappointed, the staff were friendly throughout making us feel welcome and relaxed and the general atmosphere was fun. There aren't many places you can eat that have a gremlin in the window!! There were three adults on... More

We visited as a family one Saturday afternoon and all opted for the burgers. It was reassuring to be asked how we wanted the burgers cooked. The stars were the McLovin and the Dolly Parton, both double stacked burgers. Be warned - you need a serious appetite to finish these. The burgers were very good but not quite up there... More

The family love this place. Delicious burgers, the best coleslaw and all with great retro fun decor, episodes of the clangers, Starsky and Hutch and other classics. A place for those of us of a certain age to reminisce. You have to book or you can have a takeaway!!! I've said good with families as the kids love it but... More
