I do not recommend it to anyone. Bad meat, bad bread, the vegs are bad and they are not fresh. At least the coke was good. Do not recommend

OMG this place is so cool. Not cheap, not at all... but, the food is amazing and the ambience is amazing too. I have been to better diners I have to say but, this is so charming and cool and it's right on the main street. Safe area in lisbon.

Burgers looked good. I ate a nice grilled chicken ceasaer salad which was filling. Service could be a little bit better. Atmosphere is straight out of Johnny Rockets in the US. There sre better burger places in fact the food trucks here are the best in Europe

Staff was friendly and the meal was good. Beer was really expensive (+2€ for a 20cl glass of local tap beer), rising quite a bit the whole bill.

Visited on a Sunday evening. Mediocre food yet very expensive. Our meal for 4 came to 84 euros and all we had was a shared starter and burgers/ribs and 2 soft drinks each. I did like the decor and fittings which was made to look like a 50's diner complete with 50's music....however the TV had modern music videos playing???... More

We were recommended this restuarant by a friend and were left completely disappointed. The cost was ridiculously expensive for what we ordered. The ribs were slimy, the cheesecake was poor, the chocolate brownies were awful, and the milkshakes we thin and milky, not thick like American milkshakes. The most disappointing part of the evening was the cold staff, not welcoming,... More

Went there for a quick lunch during my last stay in Lisbon. This place serves mainly American-type dishes, thus anything getting along with fries and coke. I must say that my burger was OK, yet it was nothing extraordinary - yet another burger. Go there if you fancy a burger and you have very little time to enjoy it.

If you are looking for a classic burger in the surroundings of Expo Lisboa and do not want to finish inside a mall this is a great option. Nice food and atmosphere, fare price and fast service. Recommended.

Staying in Parque das Nacoes

Neighbourhood Profile
Parque das Nacoes
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and structures that once were the home of all the Expo's attractions and exhibits are still culturally and artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the amazing Lisbon Oceanarium (one of the most spectacular things you'll ever see in the city) will take your breath away: its respect and will to preserve natural wildlife is uncanny. Easily accessible by metro, bus or taxi from the city center, Parque das Nações is highly recommended for anyone who'll spend more than 3 days in the Portuguese capital.
