Almost Famous - Northern Quarter
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.

Good atmosphere. Quality of the food was good. Came out in a reasonable amount of time and was hot a delicious.
Service was good
Quality burger, always decent.
Wings below par, just small with a ridiculous amount of sauce.
Excellent food. Hard to find if you don't know where you are going. Needs better signage at the entrance
Took ages for them to take orders for drinks, then even longer for food. The food came out fairly quickly but it wasn’t as good as I’d hoped it would be.
We found it difficult to find the place as it has no sign. And we had to ask someone. I enjoyed the food it was good value for money for city centre eating. The toilets were not 100% clean and hand sanitise was limited.
I’ve visited Almost Famous a few times a few years ago. It was (and still is) a Manchester institution.
My criticism on this recent visit stems from the fact the prices are a little steep for Manchester (even with inflation), coupled with the fact that the vegetarian options seem to have been drastically reduced from the glory days.
Staff + ambience were great as to be expected.
A great place, great food, burgers and location!! And prices!! Gonna get there asap
Poor Waiting time/staff attention.
Food ok only better due to 50%
wouldn't RUN back
The pig and waffle are out of this world and the burgers are fantastic.
The staff are brilliant.
The only little thing is the price of the soft drinks... I go with my two daughters so that's 3 large cokes which is over £10! But everything else is great, a fantastic place with beautiful food.
Fab meal and cocktails. Friendly staff. Will go back.
Always a lovely experience. Food coma!
Great food! Huge portions so be careful, one fries between two is plenty. Nice vibe and good service too.
Always a good atmosphere and amazing food as always! Thank you to the staff also!
Great food , Banging playlist , Great start to a great night.
Lovely food, great service, will definitely be coming back
Great food, great drinks and great staff. Would definitely recommend this place, it was fantastic.
I had the butter, blood and bleu burger and it’s quite easily the tastiest burger I’ve ever had. My partner had the chicken burger which was lovely too. We also shared some wings, the bbq sauce is amazing and the “hot af” were definitely hot af. Cocktails were delicious too. Staff very friendly and nice vibes whilst eating. Definitely coming here again!
food and experience was great. Came up for a weekend away and stumbled by it. only thing was it took a while
Great food, only downside I forgot that you don’t automatically get fries with your burger, so I’m going to order my own bacon, bacon fries next time
Food was amazing, staff were lovely.
Gutted we were rushed out after 1 hour and 20 mins
Good food poor service
5 guys would have been a better shout
By far the best burger I have ever tasted. Service was fast and friendly.
Hi Joanna! Thank you so much for writing this lovely review, we hope to see you again soon! :)
Great place to celebrate my son, Ben’s 18th Birthday 🤗
We walked in and asked for a table for 3, I could clearly see lots of empty tables, “sorry because you haven’t got a reservation you can’t come in”. So I went outside, looked on their website and saw that had plenty of bookings available, I booked one in the stairwell, turned around and came back. Didn’t get served for 10/15 minutes, so they ended up doing our drink and food orders together. Then they have the cheek to add the service charge on. A tip is earned not billed.
Best cheeseburger in Manchester! Excellent service, friendly staff. Will definitely be back.
Terrible waitress telling the table next to us she was the only one on shift and how bad her day was etc. Proceeds to do shots with a very lively table of 6, that we a table of 2, where sat next to trying to enjoy a nice birthday meal. Didn't once get a check back and even when the food was taken didn't even get a how was everything guys, nothing. Didn't enjoy the double dipped fries atall or the room temp beer, just a bad experience all round. Absolute waste of £40 definitely not the Almost famous it used to be 😔
The experience here on Saturday was awful. The fact the food came out before our drinks arrived gives you an idea how shocking the service was front of house. I’d understand if it was really busy but it wasn’t and I only ordered coke and a lemonade to go with our food.
Awful experience and we won’t be back.
Amazing, awesome and delicious food with 1st class service!
The service was very slow and the food was below average. We were expecting amazing burgers based off their Instagram and what was served was a bland overpriced burger. So disappointed with this place
Good food, would go back again. Service was slightly slow when we got there but picked up during the visit
Service slow took me to ask for a drink cause no on was coming over. Food was good and I would go back.
Amazing burgers! And amazing fries! Great value for money!
Cracking food. Smaller than the pictures knocking around. Expensive drinks but the food was that good I want bothered
Standards seem to have dropped here
Great food,great place
The best burgers we've had in years if ever! This was our first time after a recommendation and certainly won't be our last, very friendly and helpful staff, well worth the train journey from Cumbria.
Very friendly service and awesome food! You won’t leave hungry(!)
Always amazing food and service! Thank you very much.
It’s a really good time! The patty’s are unreal, the use of frazzles in the menu is genius and the staff are great!
Great food, best burger for a long time
