I like the fact that you can build your own burger. Don't bother taking a more expensive beef option (you can barely notice the difference). Quick service friendly staff & good food.

If you need some American food while in Zurich and don't mind paying more than you're used to at home-- this place will meet your needs. Burgers were good ($20+), fries were good, milkshakes were great ($12.50). Service was good in a European sense (much...More

Went with a couple of friends and we had a great meal. The burgers are all freshly cooked and the chips were proper chips. None of these skinny American french fries, with no potato inside. The brownie was also lovely. The restaurant is easy to...More

Ate here once in the evening and it was good, fun and comfortable. Returned for lunch and found them overwhelmed, rude, confrontational, disorganized. There are so many friendly, hospitable places in Zurich. Don't waste time On this one.

What started out as a running gag has now taken on a life of its own: We've begun rating food on a scale of how 'dirty' it is. The 'dirtier' the meal, the greater the taste and the more daring the combination of ingredients. On that scale, we seek to serve the 'dirtiest' burger in town - the ultimate burger in terms of quality of meat and taste, in other words. Inspired by Edward Hopper's 'Nighthawks', our aim was to create a Swiss take on the classic American Diner. A place offering a fresh design, comfortable seating areas, with a friendly and attentive staff, fabulous food, great music and a funky bar with extended opening hours for the city's nighthawks. We believe we have created the ideal locality for everyone: the businesswoman or businessman with little time on their hands, a group of friends looking for somewhere to hang-out, families, late-dinner lovers and clubbers with style.
