“Burgers and More”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I took my family here on a Sunday evening with no booking. Even though they were busy they found a table for us and were really friendly. The food was enjoyable for what it is, the portions are large and are exactly as advertised. I had the tuna steak and baked potato which was mediocre but I was at a restaurant specialising in burgers and ribs (that's what I am using to comment) so you take your chances. Would definitely visit again, the kids really enjoyed it.

“Yet another great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Went here friday night just gone and wow I think it gets better and better has to be for me a double decker with everthing followed by a knickerbocker glory. I can't believe I am going to say this but the portions we had were larger than ever but yet again I managed it all. Ignore any bad reviews!
Can't wait for my next visit and keep up the good work,
Loyal Customer!

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Went for sunday lunch as the kids really wanted to try it. Loved the american booths and the food was great. Really tasty and well cooked. If you like ribs, chicken and burgers then try Dilllingers. The kids loved it!.

“The Dillinger theme is not the only crime”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

Went to dillingers for a friends birthday, it was fairly busy so got ushered to the "bar" area which is between the kitchen and tables so were constantly dancing around staff trying to get food and returning with dirty plates, despite booking there were no tables ready in arrival so everyone was seated in stages and the seats of the booths were sticky and ripped fixed with gaffer tape.
The menu is terrible meat meat meat potatoes potatoes potatoes I know there's an American theme but there are no starters and nothing that makes you think mmm I want that. The chicken wings were boiled up with barbecue sauce squirted on the top and gross and the burgers didn't look appetizing at all, it is really cheap food to make but the cheapest burger was £8!! Also burger bun was not toasted grrr.
Stupid money for poor food in grubby surroundings
