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.

My husband and I had a craving for a good burger and stopped at this very cute "American" diner. The only thing American about it was the "please wait to be seated" sign at the entry. Everything else, from the exceptionally poor service to the low quality food, was a very wrong interpretation. After a lengthy series of waits starting... More

The food is as American as a German pretzel. It's like this, if you are a young German you will like it, the decor is not bad, they have plenty flavors of Ben and Jerry's and they even have Dr. pepper, so you'd probably think this is as American as it can get. But if you are a bit older,... More

We always saw lots of people eating at this diner when we drove past so thought we would give it a try. I called in on a Saturday afternoon and booked a table for later that evening with the guy oh the front desk. I confirmed the booking with him twice as well. When we arrived at the correct time...

The Benjamins diner serves the best burger in a huge radius. The meat tastes fantastic, the sauce is tasty. All in all its just a perfect burger. The also serve a lot of American food, all very good. The waiting staff is nice and friendly. We visit this place regularly although we have to drive like 80km to get there.

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
