Honestly, amazing burgers. Good size, not too big so you either leave half or leave feeling in pain. Incredibly well balanced combinations of flavour, superb sides, great location and atmosphere. It's still the best. By miles.

It used to be a very nice place but unfortunately burgers are shrinking. Every time I go there everything gets smaller except the buns. Still tastes great though. Fries are still fine.
