Disappointing Burgers

For a place that specialises in burgers, the burger wasn't great. The burger was very dry, tasteless, we were expecting quality indicated by the name of the place. The service was good and the onion rings were nice, but that was about it. I wouldn't recommend this place it's just overpriced burgers.

I'll never advise anybody to go there. Even though the service was good and the waitress nice, the meal was just of a poor quality. We ordered two burgers. They are served WITHOUT fries (a burger, come on) and one was tasteless and the other was burned. We sent it back and the new burger ?... Well it was burned... More

We wanted home made quality burgers on a Saturday afternoon and were swayed by the misleading name of the eatery. Poor quality, pre cut, dried out buns. I question if they were even in date. Over cooked, unseasoned burgers and no distinction between crispy and down right burnt bacon. Automatically dressed with over sweet relish and tasteless Mayo. The only... More

Thought I'd give this place a go since I usually go to Jo's for a good burger. Although the menu was really good I think just in the end the food wasnt to the same standard as the neighbours. The staff were more interested in talking to each other than us which i don't like. The food was very nice... More

Sorry but the burger is bland not much taste. Passed on our comments of "not great" to the waitress who really didn't care either way. Mac Donalds would have been tastier, cheaper and just as busy. Not the place to go for anything special, may be okay for a shopping trip lunch! However Mc Donalds is next door!

Had the Wellington burger along with the rosemary fries. Delicious! Have tried them again since that first visit in early December and they are consistent. This is not fast food - I could see their kitchen and there was a steady stream of burgers coming out of it but don't expect quick service - just enjoy it when the food... More

Went to South William St in party of Seven. They didn't have our reservation and put us upstairs. The windows were open and it was freezing. Like other customers we complained about the cold but we're told there was a problem with the kitchen and they needed to keep the windows open. We ordered food at 16.10 and our incomplete... More

I tried two GBK in Dublin. The burger is not bad, but quite average. I recommend the pulled pork burger, definitely better (according to me than the burgers). Chicken wings and fried mushrooms are tasty. Not a great choice of draught beers. It's not cheap and there are better alternatives in Dublin if you want to eat a burger. But... More

We tried everywhere around but nothing free at 7 last night. We were sent upstairs into the overflow room. It was full of smoke, from a poorly ventilated kitchen and for the 90 minutes we were there it remained smokey! The food was good, the service too and the milkshake very good. Burgers as you can imagine are all good... More

Decided while shopping to pop into this restaurant. Waiters very humorous and helpful. Spicy chicken wings and garlic mushroom starters followed by classic burger & sod I alita cheese burger. Recommend a visit
