Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Been meaning to try this place for a while now, so pleased I finally got round to it! They recently moved to a new location and it is gorgeous, the building has so much character, I absolutely loved it! We were seated really quickly and...our servers were all super friendly and helpful. I opted for the K-House from the signature menu, and just wow! Has to be the best burger I have ever tasted, it came with home made skin on fries that were to die for too. Already planning our next visit 😍More

Decor looked lovely so decided to go in, we were not disappointed with our choice. Lovely friendly staff, great beer and fantastic food. We both had burgers and couldn’t fault them, chip portion big, so hubby got a double helping.

A busy spot so be sure to book! The food is absolutely top notch and reasonably priced. I would absolutely recommend the Gaucho burger and posh fries! Chilli jam and aioli sauces were *chefs kiss*. Staff are very attentive and service is good. Bit of...an allrounder this one!More

Put simply it is ‘absolutely belting food’. Burgers are the best ever, chips are ridiculously good and despite being a burger joint my veggie mrs said it was sumptuous. Service quick, efficient and friendly. Would visit over and over and would recommend to anybody.

Came here for our Christmas family meal. Although it was very busy and a little crammed, it was lovely. The best burger I've ever tasted. Bit of a late review, but only just getting round to it. The whole family enjoyed it, and was a...great start to our yearly family Christmas weekend get together.More

While traveling from Sherborne to Perth (Scotland), my husband and I stopped in Durham for a break. We were pleasantly surprised by the town itself and stumbled upon this burger restaurant that offers a variety of unique toppings. We went with The Uncle Sam which...was nicely grilled and topped with flavorful cheddar cheese, pickle, lettuce and tomatoes. The crisps arrived in a separate dish that maintained their warm temperature throughout the duration of the burger consumption.More

We came to Durham for a date night, purely just to visit tango and a few pubs. The beef croquette starter and squid was unreal and the steak frites are not to be missed. The Mrs had the chicken tango burger and practically inhaled it....The Tempranillo wine was stunning, I just didn’t finish the bottle. All in all, 200/10 will be returning again. Always book to avoid disappointment :)More

Excellent service and food. Visiting with 25 school children, staff could not have been more accommodating. Kids had a fantastic time; fab choice on the children’s menu and great value! Would definitely recommend.

I was gifted a voucher a year ago that I needed to use, burgers aren’t really our choice of meal so we had been in no rush to visit. Have to say we were pleasantly surprised with Tango and it’s been over 5 years since...I first visited. Staff friendly, venue was lovely, was really warm as a cold day outside and nice ambiance. The food was lovely. Like I say not a burger expert by any means but I thought my burger was delicious as were our home made chips. The only downside was the service charge they automatically added to our bill. Not informed on arrival of this and no option to remove. I always leave a tip for good service but I don’t think for 1 adult and a child should be automatically adding £5 (suggested is fine not added to bill)More

We visited Tango , just for drinks but after seeing other peoples food coming out , we decided to stay and eat and we was not disappointed, we ordered the loaded Nachos which were fantastic. We both ordered burgers and both were amazing and in...my opinion the 2nd best burger i've had. Will be back when we return to Durham. Tango is a really cool looking place with friendly and professional staff and amazing food.More
