Wings tasted good but were not very saucy. Had to order an extra tub of sauce on the side to make up for it. There also was not a lot of sauce on the burger.

Food was good as always. Tasty and plenty of. The Blue Monday cocktail was delicious.

However, you wouldn't want to be in a hurry. We waited half an hour for anyone to take our order then another half an hour for food. For a burger and chips.

I don't know if they were overwhelmed with delivery orders or if something broke in the kitchen. When we were there, no food came from the kitchen for an hour. It was a very long wait. For a burger and chips.

An explination for the delay would have been appreciated. I've been here a hundred times and never waited so long for food before. Very unusual and dissapointing for yeah burger.

Hi Paul Firstly thanks a mill for being a reg customer! The reason for the unusual wait times was simply due to major staff shortages that most restaurants in the country are unfortunately experiencing since the Christmas period. Possible close contacts etc... that had to stay at home. But the good news is that by the looks of things restrictions are being lifted and we will be able to operate in a normal capacity with a normal amount of staff! Thanks again and hope to see you in again.

Only bad thing was that we were not checked on by any staff until we were ready to go, getting another drink was very difficult

Hi Eve, Thanks for coming in to us. Since December, we have been experiencing some last minute staff shortages due to possible close contacts etc... as well as just general staff shortages that most of the countries restaurants have been experiencing. With restrictions, all food & drink has to be ordered tableside & this greatly hinders the speed of service naturally. Good news is that restrictions seem to be finishing very shortly so we can to back to operating as efficiently as possible .

I was here 2 weeks ago with friends and thought it was great, so I went back yesterday, but the garlic butter fries were not very garlicy, the burger buns were wet from being under the lights too long, and the meat was extremely dry too. Our server never asked if we wanted another drink or to take our plates or give us our bill when we were finished, after waiting for a long time trying to get their attention we decided to pay at the till and leave, it was disappointing.

Really nice food, was waiting atleast 49 min sites for it to come out.. had 2 wooden forks on the table and felt like the servers were rude and didn’t come over once to see if we needed anything else or if everything was lay.. felt like all the staff just didn’t wanna be there and didn’t smile once.. other than that it’s a nice place.

Hi there, We are very happy you enjoyed the quality of the food. We apologise for the wait. Sometimes the kitchen gets overwhelmed with the amount of orders at once but since your visit, we have added new operational procedures to improve speed that seems to be working a treat. As our staff are required to wear masks during service, it tends to look like they might not be smiling but we can assure you they are :)

Chicken was way too spicy for a child meal and was never told its was spicy. the bbq chicken wings were awful just cold bbq sauce paired over them. the burgers were just fair nothing amazing for the price and the wait was a bit much and that was after our booking was pushed out an hour due to staff g issues

Nice burger joint, nice place, nice food. Would be better if there were more options i.e the kids meals had a chicken burger option instead of paying adult prices for a child. Also in my case not being charge for cheese if the free 3 toppings options wasn't a child's choice. Having said that, the food was great, the service was great too and very nice staff ☺👍

I work in the catering industry and I know how hard it is in these times with finding the right staff that can do the right job but I have to say they have done that in Yeah burger. Food was excellent staff were very professional and polite and the back ground music was just right you could hear your conversation. Needless to say I shall be back very soon.
Cheers guys & girls.

I got a vegan burger as I am vegetarian. No taste of it. There was not taste of any of it. The other 2 in my group like it. They are not vegetarian. They say it was lovely. To be honest not my sort of food. If you like burger and chips a 5 star from the 2 meet eaters with me

Hi there, Our vegan burger is called the beyond meat burger. Its from a company that aim to replicate the taste of a real beef burger and we think they do an OK job of it. (best vegan burger option we could find available) However, unfortunately we can only guarantee our signature meaty deliciousness from a real juicy Yeah!Burgr. beef burger! Glad your two friends gave 5 stars to the Yeah!Burgr. they received! We hope to see you all again.
