“Was good at one time ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

When I first came to Lund in 2009 Viggo's was a really good place to eat and unquestionably the best place to get a burger in Lund. Location-wise you can't beat it - directly beside Lund C it is a perfect place to watch the bustle of people go past with the cozy "ute severing" feeling. In fact, sitting outside is by far the best; it is cramped and loud inside.

In 2009 you would get a huge plate of food with good service. Somewhere between then and today the establishment changed owners and unfortunately customer service and quality went by the way. Bugers and chip servings are smaller (but still a good size) and there is unfortunately some truth in the cliche "They don't make 'em like they used to...'

The staff are often rude, food quality has dropped while prices have gone up. Viggo have a 100kr minimum card purchase policy .. Convenient for them seeing as all their burgers are around the 80-99kr mark .. meaning you are forced to buy a drink or additional stuff to bring it over the 100kr threshold. Remember to bring cash!

I get lured in by the good smells emanating from the joint, and the last three times I visited I have left feeling disappointed, comparing to what it USED to be. Due to my tendency to bad memory I tell my partner to "remind" me if I talk about going there.
Despite this, I visited Viggo yesterday and the music was blaring so loud outside making conversation with my friend impossible. I asked the lady serving to turn it down and the lady turned it up instead. Terribly rude.

To their credit, they have a great location and you do get a fairly sizable plate of food with a thick beef patty. Just the customer service which is lacking. Big time.

“Don't under estimate these burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

Generally what my girlfriend and I found while on vacation is that Swedes don't eat as much as we South African's do and therefore portions are generally small in restaurants, however Viggos is certainly the exception here! Great burgers, huge selection. Reasonably priced in terms of Swedish standards, approx 100 SEK for a burger and coke. On the downside, the whole menu is in Swedish and the guys behind the counter didn't understand much english either - so Google Translate is recommended or alternatively a Swede

“excellent quality and huge choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

This is a great place in Lund for burgers (notice this is their speciality...I am not sure they have anything else). Burgers are big & tasty, fresh and very well made with a very large selection (including vegetarian options). Prices are very reasonable.

“Home made burgers”

This place makes the best home made burgers in Lund and they have very reasonable prices too. If you want burgers, go to Viggo!
