“great burgers”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Good service and good size tasty portions. We had deep fried gherkins (not keen on batter) and chilli cheese nacho starters. Then between us we had americana burger, texas bbq burger and my big fat bean burger, all served with chunky chips and side salad. All very tasty and very big portions, we could'nt finish our burgers and waitress offered to bag them up for us to take home, a nice touch as some restaurants just take food away

Very tasty food. Good price, good service and great surroundings. I would visit here every week if I lived in Newcastle. Definitely worth a visit!

“Best kept secret! Easily the best burger I've had!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Absolutely fantastic food, great atmosphere and the portion sizes were perfect. Although a main is enough without a starter. Staff were really good and it was great value for money... Definitely going back

“Best burgers in town..”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

This quirky place is reminiscent of some underground jazz club, quite a contrast to some of the more glitzy bars and restaurants in the city. The service was friendly and efficient but the food was fantastic. I don't think I've had such a delicious burger in years; best in Newcastle and beyond. The triple cut chips were also great but I couldn't finish them. I will definitely be returning and the Happy Hour on Fridays is a bargain. A gem of a place!

“Lovely!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Absolutely delicious food! The burgers are tasty and there's plenty of toppings on them which makes a nice change from some burger restaurants. Music is good background music, and service is good, although can be a little hard to get the right persons attention sometimes. Overall a lovely restaurant and I will definitely be going back!
