Food is terrible, I never go this place forever. I cannot understand many people are satisfied with this place. One if worst experience in Basel.

The place tries to immulate a hard rock cafe, close but no cigar. Although on the plus side at least for us, a lot less noisy. The menu is diverse from salads to Burgers, Pizza, Sandwiches and main meals. We decided on the "Santa Fe Spare Ribs" which came with a huge baked potatoe or french fries, cole slaw and barbecue sauce. Although the portion had a southern flavor, unfortunately the ribs did not. The meat did not fall off the bone, was a little tuff and dry. The sauce (my opinion) had nothing to do with a BBQ sauce but more of a marinate like the people here are used too. Don't get me wrong, certainly edible but nothing to write home about. For dessert had Apple and Chocolate Pie which both had a good taste. If you don't have drinks (hard stuff - like long island ice tea or Jack and coke) the prices are reasonable. Although this wasn't a knock-over, I will give it another go and try one of their burgers, when it's a little warmer and we can sit in the beer garden. A big plus, the staff is very friendly and efficient. A possible negative, parking area is small and it's better to look in the adjoining neighborhoods or better, if possible, use the public transport which stops almost at the front door.

This is a very nice place to go for a beer on a sunny day, as Zic Zac has a large outdoor area where you find kind of a beer garden - staff is always friendly and helpful, price are fair. You can also eat there - unusual for Switzerland you get HUGE portions - I would not run a long way for the food, but it is okay.

Kool restaurant and nicely prepared food. Ambience gives you the feel of hard rock cafe but the silent one (in Basel term). Not too much expensive and spacious. Hope to visit again during special event like octoberfest, halloween etc..

This place is conveniently located from public transportation. And while it looks small and unassuming from the outside, it's huge, by Basel standards, inside. A very American menu with good burgers and even breakfast foods. It's decorated in a hard rock cafe type style and a nice low key place to go to have some American style food and atmosphere. Great to take kids to since the place is so big.
