If you happen to be in Cowley Rd, Oxford, do try and drop in this little burger bar. It's quite a different atmosphere from norm. The burger was meaty and full of flavour. The sweet potato chips were looked to perfection. You do get a lot on your plate. To me it is value for money. The owners have comics... More

Really fun restaurant which doesn't take itself too seriously. An epic number of burger combinations with some of oxfords best patties- really we'll flavoured and juicy. I've been several times and it's consistently good.

Atomic burger is not a fast food chain, yet not a gourmet burger joint. Somewhere between the two with a great line in retro sci-fi decoration and a fun menu. The burgers come in a wide range of flavours to suit most tastes and they are good. I wasn't so impressed with the fries - they promised more than they... More

We went to Atomic Burger for our daughter birthday as she had studied in Oxford and it was one of her favourite restaurants. Service was quick and the starters are massive, 20 chicken wings are the serving, so maybe only order a couple if there are a few people eating. The burgers were big and juicy and the serving of...

The service was great, the atmosphere and venue was wonderful and the food was amazing. The best veggie burger and Sci fries and fantastic portions sizes. I will be coming back for sure.

The best part of our visit is that the staff admitted to a mistake they made When they made my co-workers meal. They promptly replaced it, and even let us keep the incorrect one (which we did not eat). Great atmosphere as well.

I am very faithful to atomic burger. Bad day? Atomic burger! The variety is fun, the flavours are original, and the sides are delicious. But, I find the buns quite sad-looking and not very appealing. It's a shame, because it lets down the insides. A little toasting and buttering up would be very, VERY appreciated! Was also a little saddened... More

Fantastic restaurant, excellent food, excellent shake's, excellent staff. I've always enjoyed it whenever I get to visit. Just make sure to say you want your burgers cooked well done if that's your preference as burgers come out slightly pink otherwise (my favourite).

Super friendly staff. Superb range of options for the Burgers. Real 100% beef patties made on the premises. Absolutely delicious. I do not use fast food burger chains but this is nothing like your typical Burger Bar. Looking forwards to being in Oxford (or Bristol) some time soon, so I can indulge myself again :O)

Visited Atomic Burger on a university open day which proved a good way to escape the crowds as the restaurant is a good 10-15 minute walk away from the city centre. The waiting staff were very friendly and the decor of the restaurant is vibrant and suitably nerdy, a particular highlight being the lifesized spider man stuck to the ceiling.... More
