Description: The IRO remains closed until autumn 2017 due to the conversion of the building. The Iroquois is an American bar-restaurant in Zurich's trendy Seefeld district. The American country-style indoor dining area can seat 66 diners and the terrace can seat another 110. From morning to night this traditional restaurant serves cuisine from Central America ? ranging from burgers to burritos. For breakfast or brunch you can have Swiss croissants, or American pancakes and hash browns. The Iroquois offers a lunch menu which varies every day. At night you can try the city's largest burger and other specialities based on Californian inspired Tex-Mex cuisine. The restaurant organises regular events such as a New Year's dinner - with a DJ and Al Capone dress code - adding variety to the culinary and entertainment programme.

“Did not really like it”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

I believe it is absolutely overpriced, as you pay 25 to 30$ for burger! The drinks were not nice. Dry Martini wasn't dry, it was sweet one. Mexican food was just ok. The staff seemed to be a little bit lost. Some of the waiters were trying to be more cool then efficient. They have a terrace which is nice on summer time, but it is so close to the street and you see passing cars and trams too close from you. In my opinion, overpriced for nothing special. Did not really like it.

“Fab fries & burgers, rude wait staff”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

I love a good, well-seasoned burger and fries that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

This place has those.

If you can stand the ridiculous Zurich prices and rude, poorly trained wait staff, go here.

I will be back because it's the best burger and fries I've had in Switzerland, and I love living in Switzerland. The whole while I'm eating, though I'll be trying not to think about how I could get them faster and with a smile for half the price in the US.

Wish the manager would let me train his staff. They are downright nasty.

“Never again”
Reviewed April 28, 2012 via mobile

I am writing this review from the terrace of the restaurant. After waiting one hour I only got a warm cola with no ice (the thinking capacity of the waitress to add ice after my complaint was somehow limited -she just mentioned they had a problem with the machine but served the warm cola without even thinking this was a problem ... No comment) and a different dish from what I ordered, that they even tried to argue I had. Forget about brunch here. Service is challenged

“Great Burgers, Nice terrace on summer”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

Burgers where good about 30CHF a piece with fries so it's not a bad deal considering you are in one of the most expensive cities of the world. Service was ok a bit slow. Ambiance was good lots of people having a good time.

“Love the burgers”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

Great burgers, very friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere. For the young who wants some fun and a more laid back dinner than in the more traditional restaurants of Zurich.
