Really good place to have a burger, good and consistent quality of food, not fine dining but very relaxing and visually refreshing.

It seems most of the food comes from a bag, a jar, or the freezer. I'm not sure if they actually cook anything from scratch. Barely beats Burger King and costs twice as much.

We enjoyed this restaurant because you can sit outside on their terrace (roof top) and play mini golf. Food is good and comes in big servings. They have a big menu of burger meals and all kinds of sauces. Kids meal came in car shaped box.

Great at times, not so great at others. A little on the expensive side, but then again the portions are plentiful. If you want a burger close to the American ones, this is probably your best bet. Try the Angus beef burgers and substitute sweet potato fires, you'll not be disappointed!

What an experience! Been to a Tampere + Vantaa branch. Both experiences were memorable. The decoration is amazing and the food is juicy among juicies! Highly recommend it for a beautiful magical classical American experience.

Very nice sweet potato fries and a large selection of burgers. Environmentwise it is a bit tacky but the food and service make up for it.

This chain is rather tacky in its diner theme but the food is surprisingly decent. Obviously no real once in a lifetime experiences to be expected but the food they serve is fresh and made out of proper ingredients. Large selection of burgers, salads and toasts and the also serve nice selection of low carb health options. Value for money... More

This Place is not worth to see - it's far too expensive, what it has to offer. Keep away and go somewhere else.
