Description: Be Square and Be There! The Hamburger Factory is a must try in Iceland Gullfoss and Geysir are surely a must-see in Iceland, but neither is something you eat! That’s why we have 15 brilliant and creative hamburgers at The Icelandic Hamburger Factory.The Reykjavik Grapevine awarded the Icelandic Hamburger Factory the ”Best Speciality Burger 2010” and the “Best Veggie Burger 2011”. It made us happy, because we aim to please. That’s why we only use 100% fresh high-quality ingredients, directly from the Icelandic nature.Attention: Our hamburger buns are not round. They are square. Does it taste better? You tell us. Be square and be there.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Great service, brilliant burgers and watching the sunset.
A little out of town but was near our hotel so convenient.
The super nachos to share were awesome.

“Burger Factory”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Great selection of burgers. We went on Thursday evening and the soft drinks with our meal were free. You can also eat at the bar if the restaurant tables are full, as this restaurant is nearly always busy. Might be worth getting your hotel to book a table for you. A bit pricey but worth at least 1 visit.

“Great burgers and a good time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The "burger fabric" is a fantastic place to go to when you want to have a good burger with friends or family. They take pride in what is served and you will definetly find something you like. I have to recommend the ribs plate. I had that the last time I went there and it hit the spot, a huge rack of ribs, nice portion fries and coleslaw. The atmosphere is warm, the place is clean and the staff friendly. Be sure to mention if it's someones birthday in your group. There is a treat for all birthday boys/girls.

“Good Value and Tasty Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

It's pretty tough trying to have a cheap meal out in Reykjavik and if that is something you are looking for then I would certainly go here.
It's a very casual/family dining experience, think Nando's.

There was lots to choose from on the Burger Menu, I had a Lamb Burger and some nice handcut fries which was amazing (especially with a friend egg on top) and the Skyr cake which was somewhere between a cheesecake and a mousse. Lovely.
My girlfriend had a Muffin that had been carefully sculpted and cut and topped with various sweet fillings to look just like a burger. Cute.

In terms of price it cost us about £30 for a Main course a Desert and Soft drink which may seem expensive if you haven't been to Reykjavik yet, but in most restaurants you will pay £20+ plus for a single main course alone. So by Icelandic standards, it's a cheap meal :)

It's about a 20 minute walk from the Centre of town, and whilst the restaurant itself isn't' really romantic (expect plenty of families) the stroll back along the seafront towards the concert house is really nice on a good evening.

“Pricey Hamburger”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

If you just want to enjoy good hamburger, try somewhere else, this place is too pricey for hamburgers. We (2 person) had ours as take away for about 45 USD, 2 portion of hamburgers with fries, plus 1 extra, small size,sweetpotatoes fries with no drinks. You can't dine in unless you book in advance. I tried hamburger in several places in Reykjavik, this one not even better than others to my opinion, sorry :(
