This place sucked, big time! Me and 3 friends went there because we had heard some good things about the place....wrong! We all ordered 3 mini burgers so we could try the different types. When they were delivered to the table we couldn't tell which burger was which, and neither could the server. He came back and and told us what they were, but it didn't really matter because they all tasted the same anyway. The only difference is one had jalapeno peppers and that was the only one that had any real flavor at all. No fries, so we had a baked potato and a warm beet salad, but come on, really? We left with the impression that this place has been designed to maximize profits by eliminating any real cooking (other than throwing a very thin burger on the grill) and instead hiring lower skilled labor to assemble cheap, simple ingredients and then market it all under a cute name. Want a good burger? Go to Burger Bar. Don't waste your time or your money at this place.

the place is pretty small and we were lucky to get a seat, given that it was raining like anything outside. The burger range is really good with some interesting and different choices. I had the lamb burger and my partner had one of the beef burgers. He really liked his, but I didn't take much for mine. Meat wasn't cooked all that well and just tasted kind of boring. As others have said there are no chips, but there are other side options.

was really looking forward to burger but when we got there they didn't have the burgers we wanted, they serve chips, they had no diet coke and the place was a barren hole.
We went to the one in the Jordaan so maybe the one in Albert cup is better. after they said they had no diet coke we left, wish I had just gone to Burger King.

Nothing over-the-top fantastic, but it is good burger with good meat between the buns.

A good hearty fill-up, especially post-imbibing of a couple pints of beer from the Heineken Experience.
