“Fun to visit, good staff and decent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

It was my first visit to atomic burger this week and I will definitely go back. It is totally unique and they have something for all tastes on the menu. I had a babe ruth burger with sci fries....yuuuum! Really generous portions and very very tasty. They cater for large parties and have very good waitresses on hand who are knowledgable on all the figurines inside. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone.

“Best burger in Oxford if not the country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

Went for lunch here, had the James Earl Jones with sci-fries (chilli and garlic). All I can say is WOW!!

Great service, excellent food, zany surroundings, open all day so people can drop in any time. Very reasonably priced, will miss this when I leave Oxford :(

“Not impressed.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Eaten here a few times and only have an average meal each Visit. Burgers are ok, not the best, service is good. The floor seems sticky and could do with a clean.

Now Byron is in Oxford, I get my burger fix there.

“Fantastic, quirky, friendly restaurant with incredible burgers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

A group of 8 of us visited atomic burger yesterday evening for a friends birthday, and had a fantastic evening, the staff were so friendly and helpful and the service was great. The food was excellent and such a massive menu you can have almost anything you like in your burger. The restaurant is so unique and quirky and the atmosphere was great! The staff even allowed us to bring a cake with us as a surprise and sung happy birthday! A great night. Beware of the xxx hot sauch it is HOT!

“Good idea - poor execution”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

I am still a little confused as to what to conclude about this place. On the plus side its something different with exciting options, popping candy milkshakes and toasting marshmallows at your table. Music was mixed but all surprisingly good and plenty of nostalgia to look at. Food was good but I was shocked at the size of the bill at the end. Bill probably would have sat better with us if the place was clean, the toilets had soap, if the place did not look so tired and worst of all if the place did not smell like stagnant water. So generally a trip of extremes. Kids excited by the notion of the place and a kids menu probably would not go amiss. It would not take much for this place to be brilliant but unfortunately as it stands we probably would not go back again.
