As soon as we walked in, the staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly. It was busy when we got there, but they clean the tables up super quick and get you seated as soon as they can. Good for a local beer and yummy gluten free burger. Couldn't fault anything from the visit and similar priced to Independent burger places... More

Food was speedy and tasty. I prefer a meatier and rarer burger and this felt pre-formed (like a frozen burger) but it was still yummy. The staff were very accommodating considering I'm a fussy eater and with a slight language barrier the food was as I wanted. The side of potatoes we had were delicious: the quickest thing to go...

Heard about the illegal burger shop and had to try it . It is not the best burger in Oslo like the rumours say. But it is ok , juicy and tasty. Shabby restaurant , maybe somebody will say trendy but if was trendy it would have style . And here is no style that you see on the toilet.... More

Best nightfood ever. Great taste even after few drinks. Smokey beefburger with great extras, just as you would expect after someone told me this to be the best burgerplace in Oslo. After this high rating from a female friend I was not so sure but it was just not possible to be disappointed. We were here about 00.45 not too... More

Everything you want in a burger, nothing you don't. Well constructed, great ingredients. Fries are awesome as well. The place is small but you can usually get a seat in a few minutes if you're quick. Would definitely recommend!

Oslo is well supplied with "genuine" burger restaurants and Illegal Burger is definitely among the best. Smaller and not as pretentious as Døgnvill and Kverneriet, they serve super delicious burgers. As for their "rivals" the menu goes from the classic to the more funky burgers. The fries are super delicious as well - I'm sure they were double-cooked. So if... More

The veggie burger is good, but when you have to almost appoligize to the staff for ordering food here, it is not worth it. Really unfriendly staff. We will not be going back, and since this is not a foodora option either, I will hunt further for good veggie burger options in Oslo after this. Luckily, there are more and... More

Very underground place, interesting for the people looking for something different . Very cool underground house music that gives you a feeling to eat your food on a 4/4 beat head movement . The food is delicious and the price very affordable .

Went because of the cheap eats sections while my GF and I stayed in Oslo. She had the Blue Cheese and I had the Hot Mama Deluxe, single patty with a pint of beer. Don't listen to the haters out there. The Australian/Kiwi's will get when you are in need of a burger and a beer these guys will be... More

Unfriendly staff but did get served. I had a Hot Mamma Deluxe and girl friend had Bluecheesebacon. The burgers looked great but tasted and smelt like they were doused in paraffin(BBQ fluid)! Our potatoe wedges were ok but still had that lighter fluid smell and taste. We ate what we could as we were starving but I would warn you... More
