Incredible place: if you are a little bit geeky, you'll love it! Every piece of decoration is chosen perfectly... But the best part of the place is the food, of course: the menu is very original, you'll taste burgers as you never have before! High quality products, unusual combinations, tasty result! Oxford has a lot of excellent typical pubs, with... More

I have written many reviews on TripAdvisor, but Atomic burger may be my new favorite burger place on earth. Let's start with the atmosphere. This restaurant looks like a 1980s/90s comic shop exploded inside of a burger joint. The walls are covered with all sorts of toys and comics and playing cards. Star Wars, Doctor Who, Spider-Man, Pokémon, Alien, South... More

Went into Atomic burger for the first time today. Went to Oxford to see a friend that I hadn't seen in a long time and my heart was encapsulated when I first set eyes on the burger joint of the future! With an interior decor that made me scream 'blimey Frodo' I was mesmerised by the pop culture wet dream... More

This is a place I'd been wanting to go to for a while. On first impressions it looked great and although I can't say I found the menu inspiring was still looking forward to it. What I got food wise was an average burger with cold greasy fries. Despite the promise of jalapeño there was chopped pepper with no flavour.... More

Amazing meal here last weekend for my birthday. Anyone who knows burgers will have heard of Atomic - it's just perfection. I recommend the trailer park fries covered in American cheese, BBQ pulled pork, fried onions and BBQ sauce as the perfect accompaniment. Excellent drinks menu, great friendly and helpful staff and very consistent! Book to avoid disappointment as extremely... More

Burgers, starters and milkshakes are fantastic. Careful though the Chipotle sauce is very hot. They accidentally left the sauce on my burger but quickly replaced the burger without argument. Great staff.

It was primarily the decor that first drew me in - lots of superhero paraphernalia - and the eclectic burger menu took me a while to process, as there are some truly inventive options. The place was kind of crowded for a Wednesday night, but that's not really surprising given the student population. Prices felt a smidge high, but the... More

Before anyone thinks I hated it, I didn't. I can list all of the things I liked, the decor was great and so was the staff, a bit vacant but quick service nonetheless! The coleslaw side was nice, the fries were crispy but still soft in the middle which I like. The menu was really cool and the different menu... More
