“Good quality fast food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

We didn't have long to find somewhere to eat on our first night and this place was just across the road from our hotel. Pleasantly surprised by how nice the food was! Good value and decent sized portions. Free wi-fi available.

“Great for a snack”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Lots of lunch options, including vegetarian bits in this McD look alike but so much better than McDs. Looks like it is only a drive through but has seating options.

“Decent burger joint”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

The GOOD
- burger wasn't bad - better than McD/BK but nowhere as nice as nuce fast food like In'n'out or Carl's Junior
- staff was friendly
- good opening hours if you're eating late (until midnight on a Sunday)

The BAD
- at 1400 for the top burger meal (£7.50), not exactly a steal. You can get some excellent sushi takeaway from sushibarinn for the price
- this is very much a fast food joint next to a petrol station

“High-quality fast food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Visited a few times while staying in downtown Reykjavik, and I have to say it is pretty solid for fast food. Open late (for Iceland), and the prices are comparable to other fast food chains (~1300isk for a combo meal. The chicken sandwich is ACTUAL CHICKEN, not that compressed refrozen garbage you get stateside. Even though it takes about 5-8 minutes to get your order and hence not super fast, it's worth the wait. Ended up coming back for the ice cream sundaes, which are slightly more vanilla-flavored than usual US soft serve, but otherwise a good deal for Reykjavik eats.

“Good fast food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Burgers, wraps, fries, they got it all. Only disappointment was the milkshake which you needed to eat as it was so stiff it was more ice then shake.
