So so

Burgers were good but not spectacular. Service was polite enough but slow. It took a very long time to bring the check after I asked for it and the waiters didn't seem that bothered about us. Disappointing given how much people have been gushing over this restaurant here on Trip Advisor.

I was out of friends on our europe trip and read some pretty intense and good reviews at this place. The burgers were about average. The Appitizers were less then average and the service was less then decent. All in all, I don't understand what the fuss was about.

I read alooooot of positive reviews about this place, some said its the best burger they've tasted. Honestly it's a good burger but definitely not even close to the best burger. Appetizers were only OK and service was pretty slow! Overall, average experience.

Having been here a few times, this restaurant is a safe bet for good quality, reasonably priced burgers. However... Last night (16th March) a friend and I walked through the front door at 8pm and before we could even talk were rudely gesticulated at to leave. On reflection, how was the waiter to know whether we had a reservation or... More

I have been living for 3 years in Bruxelles, and the best burger I have tasted was in Hemgies, fresh and well seasoned meat, home made bread and awesome fries (and it is not too expensive). Definitely worths a visit. See you soon.

Looking for a place to dine one night we stumbled upon this little nugget! Both tired and wanting to sit and have a simple meal we went in. First off, the owner/server was fantastic. He greeted and seated us, and when I mentioned my allergy to Gluten he stated that he has a Gluten free bun. Like every other gluten... More

Visited on a monday night (after 21:00, an hour where most restaurants in Brussels are already closed) over a business trip. Cozy place, probably quiet too on an average night, but I happened to be sitting next a half dozen of pretty loud irish people so i wouldn't know for sure. Menu is satusfactory, the meat is pretty good, I've... More

Starter (beef tenderloin carpaccio) was interesting, tasteful and well served. Both of our burgers (Smack That, Route 66) were full of creativity, quality ingredients and flavor. Best choice among the many tourist ripping restaurants around indeed.

The onion ring were huge and delicious. As I have tried many hamburgers in many different places, I can say this one of the... More
