Food is always a 10/10. This was my second lockdown birthday but it wasn’t complete without a grandaddys diner burger meal. If you haven’t tried their food or milkshakes I do suggest you do!

I recently placed order on deliveroo. I ordered because the reviews online looked great and I have no doubt this place used to be good. Id seen the pictures. What i review though was no where near the standard I expected especially for the price....The beef tasted frozen, he bun was not toasted and was like a soggy flip flop and the whole this was very bland the beef was not of a good standard and tasted like a frozen bird's-eye burger. The texture if the beef was weird. It was chewy and just did not feel fresh at all. I get It the restaurant is not allowed to open so there business is down and they feel like they need to cut corners. But they really shouldn't be. They should have the mindset that the customers they are getting should be treated like vips. The experience I had was not up to standard a £9 burger felt like a £1 burger which to me is not acceptable. They have will not be seeing return custom from me.More

Burgers here are always so perfect and satisfying. They have the juiciest big well done patties with just the right amount of ad ons. Always a must have food in Manchester!

I got a fried egg on my burger, very very filling and a really good burger. I like that it has fried veggies and not a fake patty

The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere is laid back. The portion sizes are big especially the milkshakes which come in two glasses and are delicious.

Really good sized burgers, amazing taste and service. The restaurant is decorated nicely like an American diner and there’s a good selection of American drinks to choose from. Btw the double is actually huge!

It's not the first time to come over here and this time I came with my friend who is from Kuwait. My friend likes the burger and said it's the best burger ever have tried.
