“authentic 50's experience”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Better than McDonald's and more fun too. Like the singing and dancing by the staff and the juke boxes with oldies but goodies . Food ok if you like good 'ole American hamburgers.

“No!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

I ordered a houston, fries and a coke.
Well, fries were ok.
Burger not. Cold bun outside and inside was toasted. Meat almost absent.
Drink was a coke-flavored glass full of ice.
Disgusting meal. At all.
The worst burger of my life.

“Get you slice of 50s Americana”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Clearly a US institution - good burgers, the whole rock'n roll diner theme. Some nice innovations with sweet potato fries and spicy Houston burger. Not Jack Rabbit Slims but pretty OK

“Just ok”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

You kinda know what you're going to get with these burger chains, but have to say that this branch was slightly below par compared to other JR's or Ed's that I've visited. We sat outside on a warm summers evening at the weekend to watch the world go by, and 3rd st was very busy. Consequently, the restaurant was heaving, the seating cramped and the staff run off their feet. The food was average.
