Advantages: Looks nice
Disadvantages: food is poor, idiotic staff
I went to the tinseltown near Farringdon, the website looked good, the menu looked good... the staff wouldn't let us have a booth because there were only 3 of us so we sat next to an empty booth the whole evening. The menu had some great American stuff on it like the milkshakes and waffles. I tried a burger as I'm a bit of a burger connoisseur having sampled burgers from LA to Moscow. So basically, the bun was basic frozen long life cash and carry stuff, not even as good as a supermarket bakery ones. The meat had an odd taste to it but was low grade frozen crap, I've had better from a van in the street. The fires and onion rings were nothing special, the staff seemed to have trouble speaking English and loafed around chatting whilst tables sat there with half of their food. The couldn't even get 2 burgers and some cheesy fries on our table within 5 mins of each other. They had kosher bacon and ham on the menu but not in stock, it was crossed out with a biro on half of the menus. Strangely they were quite busy but with people who looked like they had never been to a real American dinner.
Bottom line, better burgers at Burger King or even from the supermarket, looks good but the food is crap. Would never go there again.
