“Best Burger in Swansea”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

This was the best burger outside of America I've ever had. They may be expensive but well worth the price. It's a large fresh burger with a huge chunk of onion, very flavoursome unlike other burger bars whose food is much of a muchness. Both myself and my husband ordered fries to go with it but if we'd know the portion would have been so big we'd have only ordered one portion. Very friendly waiters and waitresses and place was clean and airy.

I will definitely go back here.

“Great for kids”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We visited on a Saturday lunchtime, this was my sons choice of venue. As burgers go it was pretty average and really expensive. Best thing were the milk shakes. I wont rush back, would rather a Mcdonalds for a third of the price!

“Average”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

We visited on a Sunday evening and the place was fairly quiet. We had standard burger and fries. The burger was OK, nothing special. There was far too lettuce though in the burger making it fall apart. The bun was a standard catering bun you would expect from a burger van at a football match, which disintegrated quickly once the sauces inside soaked into it. The fries, whilst one portion was big and generous enough for two or more people even with big appetites were pretty tasteless and required lots of vinegar and ketchup to make them appetising.

Overall not a bad meal, but expensive for what seemed like average food. McDonalds is cheaper and tastier.

“So so”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

Been wanting to visit for a while but mot got around to it. Nice and clean venue, staff were pleasant too. We were dining on a voucher so limited a bit in choice to burgers and dogs. My burger was good quality and tasty but the bun was mass produced, dry fodder which did the burger a disservice. Not convinced by the Cajun sauce either, but a bit different. Veggie burger was a disappointment too. Onion rings looked impressive (size of my head) but personally the size of onion meant they were not crispy enough. On the whole it was fine, but not sure I'd choose it over other local choices. Scored 5 on hygiene front though.
