For anyone who lives in the area, this is a legendary local landmark which has been in Cheam village for generations. For anyone seeking out a pretty authentic American diner experience, this is a great little find. Burgers, milkshakes and everything you would expect in a diner, and although seating is limited, you don't get the impression that you are... More

Best burgers in the area by miles. Lots of food per portion and price is good too. They also make proper American style milkshakes using real ice cream and not powder substitute. Worth going.

In my opinion this is a cafe, burgers were basic bought in crap, basic frozen chips, no ribs/mac'n'cheese/hotdogs....basically everything id ask for in an american restaurant kids were not impressed either, milkshakes were just syrup and milk, prices were reasonable, but thats about the only positive, sorry.

I used to go here as a child many years ago, recently visited for a tasty lunch to try it out again and I was not disappointed. Wide variety of delicious burger choices amongst other options. Friendly staff, great milkshakes, decent portion sizes and plenty of choice, all at reasonable prices. Its a small restaurant so if you have a... More

Your kids will love it, particularly the triple thick milkshakes. Burgers good ( go for the half pound), all are available in veggie options too. Chips a little disappointing, probably be better doing fries, but all in all its perfectly serviceable. If your kids are under 10, take them!

My boyfriend introduced me to this place as he used to live in cheam, and always loved going here, and it is truly is amazing! We have been so many times since, brought friends who now also love it, and get takeaways from there. The food is always spot on, the milkshakes are fantastic ( I can't get a burger... More

An ok meal if you are hungry and looking for a quick stop. Nothing special. Reasonable service. Burgers were a bit of a disappointment. I would think they are probably not cooking good burgers, rather the type from the local cash and carry. In general ok for a quick meal don't think you are going to a burger bar because... More

I've had a burger here a couple of times now. Burgers are ok, half pounder is meaty, good texture, but think they could do with more seasoning but they're probably wholesale anyway. Rolls are cheap and not big enough for a half pounder. Found the chips disappointing - rather limp and tasteless. Prefer fries with a burger anyway. Shakes however... More
