Burgers

Almost Famous burgers were born from a need for a super juicy dripping down your arms no nonsense burger – 100% prime cuts of beef, pillowy soft charred bun, melty cheese and creamy tangy sauces. We smash all these elements together to create the burgers we’ve been known for since day one.

    First time I tried Almost Famous, Id won a meal for 4, so me and my kids had a great time. That was several years ago now. Since then I've been back many times. It is expensive for a burger, but nobody else really does the burger like they do. They look at it and think, "How mad can we make this?". And they go overboard, but in a brilliant way. Did notice though tht they no longer have a dessert section on the menu, but then again, after you've eaten one of their creations with a side of bacon-bacon fries, you couldnt anyway. Thank you Almost Famous for being Mad. AND, for having decent music on!

    Table for 8, was put in the private dining room which was a nice touch and suited us. Bit pricey for what it is, but tasty and fun.

    The food was amazing as always, but they need to work on giving the right fries with the right burger. It’s happened twice now where food has been brought out and we’re eating, to notice we’re eating the wrong fries and friends sat there with no food because the forgot a portion of fries. That’s the only negative really, it’s a bit frustrating

    The food was amazing as always just the service was a bit poor, for example it would've been better for the waitress not to carry our glasses under her armpit but use a tray since she had several items in her hands, the person that took our orders was a bit unbothered and, and then we were not told when the kitchen was closing - usually, people are asked whether they want dessert so they can order before the kitchen closes - so we had to give up on that. Overall I like the place and come in monthly so hopefully it's just a one-off instance

    The food here is outstanding! Particularly recommend the wings and loaded stacks. We went as a family group with kids and grandparents and everyone loved the food. Great decor and ambience. Only thing that was less good was food took a little long to arrive and a milkshake we ordered took ages to appear (although it was delicious!) Overall would definitely recommend!

    The vegan burger was one of the best I’ve ever had - other people in my party also said the same. Great choice of veggie/vegan options on the menu. Service was a little rushed - we got asked for our food order 3 times within the first 5/10 mins and before we had been served drinks and looked at the menus properly Other than that, it was great experience!

    We were sat next to a dirty window with a huge crack in it, to the right of the bar. This didn’t add to a nice atmosphere. Lunch deal wasn’t clearly explained to us ( which items were included and which weren’t) and the burgers were just warm when they arrived. Disappointing compared to my last visit in the NQ branch. I was bringing a friend and she had never been before, so I was gutted it wasn’t as I had made it out to be. Expensive and poor compared with lots of new competition.
