“Super friendly service and unexpectedly good food”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

We were wandering around after the shops closed looking for some place comfortable to eat and, since we were dressed in jeans and feeling a little travel weary, chose this because we thought we wouldn't be inappropriately dressed. My spouse wanted wings and our friend wanted ribs. Both were really happy with their choices. My husband ordered a lot of wings, don't think he realized just how many he was getting and he ranked them among the best he's had anywhere. I had a wonderful salad that surprised me with the warm apples and tastiness. It was very satisfying.
When the bill arrived I calculated that the wings cost $40, so if you go and ask for the large order ask how many wings are in the order and make sure you can eat that much or order the smaller portion. We left a lot of wings on the table.
Good beer choices. It's dark inside and there was a large table behind us that made conversation difficult, however, it's a pub and we realized that going in so didn't mind.
The young man who waited on us was extremely friendly and welcoming. The servers looked like they enjoyed their jobs and we saw a lot of comaraderie between the staff members.

“Wings and Fries”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

After been many times for dinner - this time had a lunch. Since with the kids, we only ordered two chicken wings and two down under fries. There both super tasty!

The location is just right at the Train station and Zürich biggest car park is not far away either.
Inside it's usually loud but at this rather later lunch hour (13:30), not too many people there.

Service was OK, waiting time moderate but the price was whopping 69€ - just for Lunch!
You can get the same for half the price just a few steps away but with lower quality.


Verdict:

“Loud, poor service”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I don't care how huffy you get about its name, a burger with cheese on it is a cheeseburger. I'm a pretty friendly, polite guy; if I come in tired, hungry and thirsty, smile and ask for a cheeseburger, it's not up to the barmaid to pissily lecture me about how it's called a "double 'roo esky holden koala fosters whatever burger" (or whatever), how it's "the best [--] burger in the world", and subsequently turn her back to me every time I try to order a beer. It's decidedly not the best anything burger in the world, you're not Australian, your place is loud and grimy, and no thanks.
