Got off to a tough start. Came there with my friends, we had booked a table but no server came up to us in a long time so we sat down on our down. Then they asked us to change table for a bigger group...of people, which was fine but it was before they even greeted us or gave us menus. Just a small, strange first impression, service wise. They all proved me wrong after that though, very friendly and caring. Food was amazing. I don't know what it was, it's almost as if Amsterdam put something special in their food - tasted great. Took their veggie burger which was insane, very realistic grilled meat patty feeling even though it was vegan. Fries very heavenly. This is a fantastic burger place with a chill vibe. Nothing fancy but still cozy! Good music too :)More

Delicious Burgers for good prices! The burgers are really big and have a good quality. Also the service is very friendly. The only thing what is a little bit „negative“ is that it was very loud and cold in there.

This is a nice burger restaurant. The atmosphere is pleasant and the staff is both efficient and friendly. We loved our burgers: cheese burger and bacon burger. We took two portions of fries: classic and the sweet potatoes and this was almost too much! Sweet...potatoes fries were the best. Good selection of beers too. We paid 44€ for two burgers, two portions of fries and two beers. You won't leave hungry. Enjoy!More

We drove all the way from the center of Amsterdam for this restaurant and it is really scammed us. The food is not good and everything was burned. We reserved a table before we came and they put us in the back of the restaurant...in the darkest place they found. It looks like the deliveries was top priority and not us waiting for the food for about 45 minutes. Really shame we drove 25 minutes for this restaurant only because somehow it is highly recommended and it is the worst. People look out, it's scam.More

A small trendy place in the oud zuid area serving delicious burgers. I had a double spicy burger with fries and lemon mayonnaise. All were very tasty and the patties were grilled perfectly. Service provided by the staff was friendly and attentive. The biggest letdown...was the price: charging almost 30 euro's for this combination is outrageous, especially as items are charged separately instead of a fixed price menu like the do at BurgerBar. For me it was a one time only visit.More

Dear Christine, Unfortunately we don't have vegan dishes we could offer, we could make you some side dishes like homemade fries, corn and nachos with fresh guacamole. If you have any other question please let me know... More
