Friendly service and interesting atmosphere. However the food is sub par. I have decided that being a person who travels often, and eats out, it is my duty to leave honest, detailed accounts of my food experiences, so others can enjoy or avoid the places I have eaten at. Where it says cheddar cheese on the menu ("Speedy Gonzalis Loaded"... More

I really want to like Atomic Pizza (and Atomic Burger down the road). It's geeky theme is aimed squarely at me, 90% of the menu is something I want to eat, and the toys scattered around the walls provide a perfect conversation starter. The issue is they no longer sell decent food. To their credit, the birthday party deal (£12... More

Six of us went and two were going to try the Fallout challenge, however one pulled out at the last minute. Best choice he has ever made. My friend tried it and after three bites had to give up, it was far too hot, the chilli sauce was smothered on everything, so he couldn't even eat the chips. £25 down... More

We've been here a few times and never had a bad meal. The menu is american retro inspired by comic, film & gaming characters. For example the margarita pizza is called the Pac Man. It has a 70's/ 80's feel and the place is adored with retro toys and posters. Basically it takes you back to your childhood and if... More

I cannot recommend this place enough if you're looking for pizza or burgers in Oxford! My husband and I moved from the U.S. to Cowley for a few years and ate Atomic Pizza at least once a week. All the pizzas are delicious and they have such creative menu items. My husband loves trying the monthly Joker special burgers but... More

Loved the burgers and fries and there is a great range to choose from. Pizzas are great too! Quirky fun atmosphere and good service. The coleslaw is delicious. Try the lagerita!

This is definitely something outside of the norm. The staff are friendly if occasionally a bit OTT in that over-friendly, hyper-American way. However the food is always good, definitely different and the décor is loads of fun. I'd definitely recommend booking as this place is hugely popular and gets busy fast!
