This was my third visit to Almost Famous and it cemented my opinion of it as one of the finest burger establishments in which I have ever set foot. We were told to expect a wait of about a half hour - perfectly acceptable given that it was peak time on a Friday evening. We hadn't even finished our first... More

I was seriously impressed with this restaurant. The decor is quirky and distinct (upon arrival you are greeted by a huge gorilla statue) and the restaurant is extremely spacious. Even without a booking we were seated immediately and I have high praise for our waiter Joel who contributed immensely to our positive customer experience. I was keen to try a... More

The quality of these burgers cannot be understated. We visited on a Saturday night at prime time. After being given a wait time of over an hour at the Northern Quarter site we decided to visit Great Northern. We were given a wait time of 45 minutes and were welcomed into their upstairs bar for drinks before we were seated.... More

Heard loads of great things, and wasn't disappointed! Hardest thing is to find the place. Up some random stairs into a dingy looking top floor... go through the door and you're into a cool graffiti ridden restaurant, very edgy! The menu is crazy, mad concoctions which all sound amazing. Went for "everyone in Texas has two guns" double patty, cheese,... More

Normally I won't spend time to write review. It was 4:40pm I walk in ask how long, me and my partner just wanted a quick meal. The staff reply 10-15 min max so we waited upstairs at the bar for 35mins. Finally we got our table, order waited for 45mins , what upset us the most is. The table next... More

It's been sometime since our last visit to this restaurant. Last time we were massively impressed by the size ,quality , and taste of these so called dirty burgers. This visit the burgers had shrunk by at least two thirds, not the price though. Also the service was poor, I picked this place on our previous visit but will not... More

Great food great service. Great value for money. Lots of places to eat in The Northern Quarter, but this is really nice. We visited on a Saturday early evening , but got a table after 5 minutes. It got really crowded after a while.

Did make our way into Almost Famous twice on our trip to Manchester for the super bowl, but only ended up eating once. First time we ended up waiting for an hour before leaving to find something else. (We did end up leaving a man behind who did get some food but that was still another 30 minutes later) We... More

My 22 year old son invited us here. I had heard good reports about Almost Famous on Northern Quarter and Great Northern. I was suspicious it was more of a 'young scene' than a fifty something diner, but there were some other oldies in when I was! I love the Great Northern building so was pleased he chose this venue....

Used to love coming here when it felt much more independent, it feels super branded nowadays and not quite what it was!
