“Burger Convert Now”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

My wife and I have always avoided eating burgers of any description. We stumbled upon this burger restaurant and was surprised by the large local crowd. We had a mini lamb burger and a beefburger royale.Both burgers were truly amazing and delicious.The meat was cooked upon order in the open kitchen and was properly caramelised and cooked to perfection. We really enjoyed our burgers and now are newly converted burger lovers. The only shortcoming is that this place doesn't sell alcohol. There was a continuous stream of customers.

“Tasty burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

A friend of mine lives in Amsterdam and told me that they sell good burgers here so we went there together to check it out. It's not a big place and inside it has a bit of an American look. We ordered our burger at the counter (and a corn piece) and after a few minutes we got out burger. It was tasty, I'll be back for more! You can chose from approximately 10 burgers and give a suggestion for the burger of the month. If they pick yours than you can come and eat it for free. Service was okay, price also, only negative point was that they don't serve fries.

If you like burgers, try them here!

“Not bad burger but lack of choice lets it down”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Went here for a quick bite to eat on our fist night in Amsterdam.
We visited the one on Elandsgracht.

I ordered a cheese burger and my partner a chicken burger. We were informed there was no chicken so he had a cheeseburger too. We ordered a diet coke but they don't serve diet coke. We had normal Coke.

The burger patty was well cooked (medium) and tasty. The lettuce was a bit limp and lifeless. Overall it was a good burger but could have been better.

The lack of choice of sides was a bit disappointing too - no fries in a burger bar?! We went without a side.

The service was fine but the place could have been a bit cleaner.

Not bad for a quick bite to eat

“Great burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

Really nice burgers but not much choice in sides. Simple Food, and tastes good. You can see them make your burger, it's very fresh!

“Good food!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

Great atmosphere, just the right amount of American burger joint without being cheesy or tacky. The food is good, we had kangaroo burger (option of the month) but be aware, they don't serve fries! Though the burgers are big enough that you don't really need a side. Would recommend.
