Met my family here as our first restaurant in our visit to Germany. Definite feeling of 60s Americana with the hamburger and chocolate shake. Staff very knowledgeable about allergies and my wife was able to have their fries due to separate frying requirements as she is allergic to gluten and cross contamination is common in fryers. Food was good and... More

I was headed to Prague, then Berlin and my roommates took me here before I left. Amazing shakes and burgers aren't bad either. Sometimes you might have to wait for seating but they do have English and German speaking waiters and waitresses.

Expensive grilled meats but affordable, well made tasty burgers in american diner atmosphere. If you don't book a table you have to wait long most of the times. They have a parking place, but it's always full. Desserts are very good!

Service was fantastic. Food was good. I won't lie, their German butter was amazing. They had this platter thing full of breakfast that I would have ordered had I realized what it was. I loved the decor! Saw this is a mini-chain restaurant with three other locations. Missing American food? Def the place.

The lunch was great and not expensive at all. We paid for one bottle of water and a big portion of backed potatoes with cheese, vegetables and salary just 10.30 euros. The atmosphere was friendly, and i found it authentic us stile. Just be careful to make a reservation first, as the place is full at rush hours. I have... More

This restaurant reminds me American movies I used to watch when I was young, so it is kind of sweet nostalgia which makes me always come back although the food is just an average. Plus service is fast and staff polite and friendly. I recommend to make a reservation as sometimes (not always) it is very busy and you may... More

I was hoping this food would be a lot better. It's not an "American diner". The food was disappointing. I wouldn't go back again. I'd rather drive to landstuhl for Sander 's Cafe... which is amazing BTW.

I like American sports bar type dining so I jumped with joy when i stumbled across this place. It looked good from the outside with easy parking and an attractive terrace area for eating outside. I chose to eat at the bar and was quickly seated with a menu. That was the end of the good service! I waited twenty... More
