The best burger bar in Manchester by far! Never disappoints.
I took my son for a half term treat and it certainly didn’t disappoint. He had the gremlin burger and I had the crack shack - both were equally delicious and he actually rated it the best burger he had ever had. (He wasn’t wrong) Really easy to use the app at the table to order - we will definitely be back thank you!
The new gremlin burger was really good
Amazing food like usual. Was strange atmosphere with covid. Staff doing their best x
Excellent lunch - great burgers, awesome fries, lovely drinks & staff. Recommended
Amazing burger as usual! Best place in Manchester
Fantastic food, fresh and warm. Waiter was fantastic and very professional, no complaints
First time visit since before lockdown, i prefer the old menu and not as keen on the updated Phoenix :( but will visit again
Just what was needed. Quick seviceZ good food. Really friendly staff. Covid considerations in place.
Delicious food and very friendly staff. My most favourite restaurant of all time.
Amazing burgers, excellent service, overall fantastic meal!
Our meal had to be returned 3 times due to incorrect order.
The Burgers was cold in middle & overpowered by over excessive sauce.
Making the bun really soggy & disgusting to eat especially cold.
As always amazing experience. The food was amazing
Service was appalling both of our orders got forgotten about and took 1hr20 to get food. Would not recommend during coronavirus seems not got the service under control.
Absolutely stunning, this place was the best burger joint I’ve ever been!
Always enjoy going - the food is amazing.
Amazing food and service as always.
Great lunch deal
We went during the day and got the Lunch Deal that’s currently going on, a burger, drink and fries for £12.50(we both got bacon bacon fries though for the extra 50p), it was super quiet (which I love at times like these) and the food was pretty quick and tasted amazing! Staff were super friendly aswell! Can’t wait to go back!
Food is amazing
The best burgers and cocktails in Manchester. Good atmosphere and good service.
Loved going back to Almost Famous. The new online ordering system is great, please keep this! The food was wonderful as usual. Staff were friendly and efficient. Covid measures were great and could see staff actively following these. Only thing was that the place was looking a bit worse for wear, I know they go for the grunge look however parts of the toilet were broken and paint rubbed off walls, stairwells looked like they hadn't been cleaned since lockdown.
Not all but one specific waitress was highly rude. Gave me a receipt with nothing printed on it so asked for another printed correctly but she muttered under her breath and said she couldn’t do it. I then asked for the manager and she magically appeared the receipt I asked for. I wouldn’t mind but it was a refund receipt and the money wasn’t in in bank yet so wanted proof just in case. However food was lovely.
Would definitely recommend and 100% would go again myself.
Drinks took 35mins, food came about 2-5mins after the drinks.
A really good place for nice hands on food. Good prices (apart from drinks) and top quality food.
Really enjoyed the food, huge portions and got the 12.50 lunch deal which included a drink and fries which were a mix of normal and sweet potato. Would go again and recommend.
I will suggest to anyone would like to have a nice burger and fries as well... Taste very nice
Great vibe and food. Service was good on arrival and managed to accommodate us despite arriving early
Usually love almost famous, but this time took over 20 mins to get our drinks after ordering. Also, think sauces may have been changed- we had bacon bacon fries and the taste was far richer and stronger than usual. In the end we both just left them as the richness was too much.
Burger was lovely, perfectly cooked.
Booked table and was seated straight away
The food was delicious. I would say that the service is slower due to now ordering online. The online order service is very long winded especially when you just want to order a drink it’s annoying. It would be better if your details where saved or if you can use Apple Pay as you have to enter your details every time to place an order. Other than that though had a great time 👌🏼
Food was nice. However, Felt the App ordering takes away from the dining experience and I would also like the option to have paper menus as only having menu via the website/app makes it an antisocial event with everyone sat there on their phones. Also made it impossible to split the bill otherwise if ordered individually may have arrived at different times. Felt there was a lack of interaction with servers once seated left to your own devices and had to ask for napkins. It was not easy to customise food choices from the app ordering only with added notes to the item but left uncertain if they would be noticed by the kitchen - thankfully they were but added anxiety. Whilst the restaurant is clearly taking appropriate steps to ensure safety of the dinners I probably wouldn’t return to this venue until covid measures are relaxed as felt like an overpriced fast food experience rather than a nice restaurant experience, which is a shame being our first time visiting.
Service wasn’t the best. Waited 20 minutes for drinks, around 35 minutes for food and wasn’t given cutlery with the food which we had to wait a further 5 minutes for. Also asked for condiments which was just ignored.
Food was very good though, so maybe just understaffed/new staff with COVID.
The food is always fresh and it always tastes unreal, we have never had any issues with food being cold, staff are always really nice and polite and they always seem really happy.
Once you get to grips with the App ordering, its great! Staff were helpful and looked after us.
Absolutely amazing food. Would highly recommend! Especially if you love a good burger with tons of flavour.
We came here with our toddler for a quick lunch. Waitress was really friendly and told us the steps to ordering our food. Service was really quick and the food was amazing!
Absolutely sensational, only bad point is that I’ll have to travel 5 hours for another one
Servers not at all friendly and just slamming meals on the table.
