“Fantastic Burger Experience”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

This was my first time visit on recommendation of a friend and the food experience was fantastic.

We enjoyed great starters, delicious burgers and cocktails. Unfortunately I didn't get to try one of the milkshakes.

My only concerns are the flies in the outside area and spider webs in the bathroom. Both of which can be remedied easily however did not detract from my overall experience.

The waiter was friendly and on point. Excellent service plays such an important role in any given experience.

Thumbs up from me.

“Amazing Burger choice”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

The selection of burgers is incredible, although some of them would be an acquired taste. And my veggie friend even says the veggie burgers are of the best he has had.

Oh and don't forget to have one of their gourmet shakes :)

“Fantabulous”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Perfectly cooked and juicy (although not overly messy) burgers. Great veggies, great atmosphere, fresh ingredient and massive variety. Just a winner!!

“Mediocre at best”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

We heard all the great reviews but were very disappointed. Firstly, the place is filthy and needs a good clean.
Secondly, the poor waitress could barely converse in english.
Thirdly, my wife's burger patty was cold and mine lukewarm - not freshly grilled.
Fourthly, my wedges consisted of a boiled potato sliced in half and put on a flat top for five mins - not great.
Fifthly, why on earth is balsamic reduction drizzled over the chips?
Sixthly, why is there cucumber on the burgers?
Seventhly, why is the kiddies chicken schnitzel served on salad leaves?
Furthermore, the kiddy chicken was inedible and had that distinctive fishy odour of cheap chicken. Why are kids given balsamic reduction, too?
Finally, the claim that the buns are baked freshly in the premises is laughable.
The evening was rounded off by seeing the kitchen staff slouching around the dining area.
What a pity this restaurant is so ridiculously overrated. We either hit a bad night or joburgers will simply eat anything and think it's wonderful.
Avoid.

“Vegetarian Friendly”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Being vegetarian I was a little reluctant to try out a “burger joint”, but when I went through the menu, I found a 5 or 6 of veg options and each very unique.
The food tasted as good as it looked and the milkshake was the best I’ve had in ages.
I can’t really comment on the atmosphere as it was lunch on a weekday and they had some renovations going on.
Décor is “very pop-artsy” and the service was good.
If you’ve gotten this far down the review, GO get a burger already!
