The burgers were good but relatively pricey, we went on a Tuesday evening and it was very busy, tables were all dirty and waiting times were long, even to pay! Probable ok at other times and a good place to see the F1 track

If you don't mind waiting in a chaotic restaurant for some pretty decent fast food then you'll be fine. It was packed when we went which might explain things however it was during the Tuesday Yasfit session so would have thought they'd have worked out when to put more staff on by now.

yes, its the only good food source near the track in YAS, all petrol heads head there after a track day and we all love it tip: order any burger with sweet potato fries or normal fries with cheese

The view from this restaurant can be awesome if the cars are racing. It is soundproof inside but if you step out onto their balcony, it is amazing at how loud the racing cars are. Great burgers, fries and shakes.

Don't even waste your time on this place. The tables were all dirty, they had 2 waitresses to like 20 tables so we waited 20 min before anyone saw us. Our burgers were soggy and then they complained about my Groupon saying they didn't take them except there was a stack of them on their counter. Will never be back... More

Great location. Staff friendly. Terraces provided really good views of the track. BUT don't go here if you want something decent to eat!!

Not the Johnny Rockets I remember. A yellow and undersized bun. . . What's that about? I had a Route 66 and it was tragically the last meal I will have in a Johnny Rocket establishment. In fact the only thing memorable about the burger was that it was my last. The burger was average and the service was decent... More

Definitely not the best burger in town. Cool location as you can sit outside overlooking the race track and the staff are good fun and occasionally put on a wee dance show. Milkshakes are the best thing on offer.
