Not so great

We ate two burgers with fries and nachos with salsa and mozzarella sticks. The nachos didn't taste good and the salsa was artificial not self made. The burgers weren't great nothing special. The sweet tea wasn't strong enough.

They offer online reservation service and you never hear anything back from them and if you call them up, they are rude! Will never go there again (or try to go there!)

Huge burgers, great spare ribs and chicken wings. If you do have the chance do not miss the breakfast specials, just great great! Do try to reserve a table downstairs, it's far better than sitting upstairs.

They do a chilli burger, which has a tablespoon full of chilli on it - so when I ordered chilli I got ... A tablespoonful of chili! And some chips. It wasn't great chilli. Also, even though the place has two floors and a garden, with dozens of covers, they are really snitty about groups. My colleagues had a Stammtisch... More

Great American Diner. you should reserve a table before going there. Furthermore, you should sit downstairs. The burgers are excellent.

They make a good American style breakfast and have some good food. It is quite a bit overpriced, though for what you get.

We waited more than 1 hr for the food and it was not full of people. The sampler was overcooked and pure grease and the burger had mustard which was not in the menu as mayo was. It was expensive, the service was awful, slow and unfriendly. Both my spouse and I felt sick after eating their food that day.

I am loathe to write to glowing a review of Benjamins as the place is often hard to get into/crowded enough, but it is the nest burger bar I have been to in Germany and would hold its own in the US, Great burgers, shakes, wings, cheesesteaks, bbq, chicken sandwhiches, visit here multiple times a month and we are never...

This was our first restaurant in Germany and we chose it out of necessity due to our lack of transportation and it's proximity to our boarding house (same building.) It's a five minute walk off base from the Sullivan Barracks PX as well as the Kafertal Wald Street Car stop. In name a diner, this restaurant is a little bit... More
