This place is a nice little gem in Edinburgh. It's hidden away on a backstreet and despite hearing great things about it, I never visited it until this year. True to everything that I heard the burgers are excellent and there is a great selection. Being an American in Scotland, good burgers are usually hard to come by, but not at this place. On the most recent visit I had a Teriyaki Chicken Burger with Swiss cheese. It was epic. They didn't scrimp on the Teriyaki sauce and everything was perfectly cooked. The other people in the group had a Blue Cheese Burger, Lamb Burger and Fajita Burger and everyone enjoyed what they got! The selection of beers, wines and spirits There are always Scottish beers on draught and even more variety by the bottle.

The service is laid back and friendly, as is the general atmosphere of the place. They have a TV for sports, but it's never been too loud or overwhelming when I have been in. It might be worth booking a table if you have a large party or it's a weekend. We went on a Tuesday and it was full!

The place is pleasingly uncomplicated, although I can't quite work out what it's trying to be: a weekend haunt for young professionals seems the most likely. The food is simple, US grill-type food (burgers); crowd-pleasing, tasty, and affordable. Nevertheless, some of the previous reviews make this sound a tad better than it is. The range of lagers and ales is excellent, although the cider they stored was basically apple juice mixed with ethanol. The staff were very friendly and helpful as well.

The interior and atmosphere is pleasant, and can imagine the atmosphere would be very lively, although we visited on a Sunday evening, so always difficult to judge a place.

Had a very good burger and salad- not upscale eats but very very tasty and the service was very friendly and prompt. Will return whenever craving a burger (which admittedly isn't often)

I can't believe Iv never been to this place before, the burgers are phenomenal! Cooked to perfection with some tasty toppings. The staff went well above the call of duty as well excellent customer service, especially the young blonde girl, she made sure the food was ok, our glasses were never empty and even provided us with some good banter. I will certainly be returning and recommending this place to friends and family!
