Was perfect for a catch up lunch with a friend. My only minor gripe was that we were put at a table that was very close to another table despite there being a lot of spare tables to choose from. Service was good though.

The burger patties were not nice and tasted like they had maybe liver in them. My husband and son couldn't eat them. The chips were good but would have been ideal if one of the servers had noted one portion would suffice for two given how large they were.

There's a great selection of beef burgers, but all 3 diners in our party chose chicken options.

We all thought the portion sizes were generous and good value. The rosemary and parmesan fries were especially good. The Korean burger was nice and spicy, but the generous serving of sauce caused the bun to fall apart a little towards the end - this, of course, didn't stop me polishing the whole lot off, it was that good.

Food was great however there was a mistake with our order and our food took over an hour to arrive at the table, was rather frustrating seeing people come in after us and get their food first. Food tasted good though, especially the Cajun fries

Food was average huge portions can’t fault it. Booked outside at 7pm in November and it was freeeeezing so that messed the whole experience. Service wasn’t amazing no cutlery outside no tissues provided we were seated outside and just left I had to go inside and get someone to come take our order and then again to pay the bill they didn’t take our drinks order either maybe if we seat inside experience would be diffeent

We were a middle aged couple in a restaurant with a young vibe, however, our waiter was very attentive and the burgers we had were excellent.

Heard great reviews on the burgers so came to try them out for ourselves whilst working In Edinburgh.

Portions were decent and the truffle Mayo was divine.

The classic burger was crispy.

Played some awesome music :)

Great place - my only feedback would be please could fresh Parmesan on the Caesar salad / fries? It was a bit like the dry powdered stuff, even if it wasn’t! We still really enjoyed it - lovely wine, milkshake, burgers & service was fantastic.

Restaurant was clean. Service was a bit slow with the drinks several times though. High table was annoyingly wobbly too. Food was good though, which is the main thing

Easily the best burger you'll get in Edinburgh. Plenty of variety too, and their home made sauces are incredible!

Heard this was this best burger in Edinburgh. Meat was delicious and very flavoursome + cooked to perfection; American cheese was rich and "cheesy"! Could honestly not believe there was no iceberg, tomato and onion in their classic cheese. Without the salad, the burger was just too rich.

In saying that, it was a delicious burger, but skipping what is universally included in the world's best burgers is a mistake IMO.

Large portions - good burger and buns but Reuben burger had far too much sauce. Not sure £2 extra worth it for some Parmesan and some rosemary salt on the chips. Music loud so avoid if you want to have any significant level of chat.

Delicious food. Great service. The music is reasonably loud which might not be to everyone's taste. When we arrived there was a song with heavy base on which was shaking our bones a little but it got much better when different songs were playing.
The milkshake of the month (Nutella and strawberry) was delicious too!

Food was excellent and well priced. Staff amazing, it was our anniversary and we got complimentary processco. This is a must go to burger joint, I'm not a fan of beef burgers but that changed after having the Ruben burger.... damn this will change your life. Best burger I've had and I hope to be back one day.

Good buzz- busy Friday night. Though, took us 40 minutes to get our food and a few tables around must have been waiting for a similar time. Can’t help but think they were prioritising deliveries which was not good to see. When the food came, the sides were hot but the burgers were lukewarm, verging on cold. In terms of taste, pretty average. Lot of promise but won’t rush back here.

Really good food. Had the chicken and bacon burger which was amazing. We tried 3 of the dips which were all really tasty and made the food stand out from other burger places in my opinion. All in all amazing food and definitely worth a visit! Will be visiting again.

Food was great, flavours of the hot sauce for the wings and chilli chicken burger were great. If you don't like ice in your soft drink though, I would suggest you ask for no ice as our coke came with mostly ice

Burgers were nice, not worth being about £12 each though. Cajun fries were no better than 5 guys so probably wouldn’t pay that much for them again. Buttermilk wings were incredible (highlight of dinner). Just think it was overpriced for what we actually had but definitely not the worst place I’ve had dinner.
