“Not What Expected”

Classic American Diner

Having enjoyed a really nice experience in the Classic American Diner before in another city, we were looking for something similar from the restaurant in Tampere as well. However, it certainly didn't meet up to our expectations.

The restaurant is located inside a centre, so there were no windows and it was quite dark inside. Otherwise it was decorated like a diner should be, so no complaints there. They had Christmas carrols playing in the background, which might have been nice but the playlist kept going off every now and then.

The service came quite slow, same with the food. I ordered a chicken hamburger with feta cheese, and it tasted nice and was better than an average hamburger in a fast food place. However, my date ordered a hamburger with some kind of mango sauce and spices in it, and the taste was somehow "soapy" and it was a big disappointment.

I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to my friends.

You can come here after movies at Plevna.

Try here wings!! Hamburgers are tasty. There are of course fries, if you like. Prices are hmm. not very bad, but about ten euros per meal and if you take cola and wings, then it is easily about fifteen euros.

Great dining experience at an (almost) authentic American diner. Lots of American memorabilia make it feel like America in Tampere. The food is good, and price range is reasonable. The Finlayson area in general is also very nice.

For me, best burger in town. Really many options for all tastes and hungriness. Cool atmosphere of old fashion American burger restaurants. Service is quite good, very friendly. And kids love the food coming in the paper car :)

A real looking American Diner with smiling staff (very rare in Finland). Wide selection of American hamburgers and steaks. Fast service. Moderate prices.
