My family and I came to the restaurant on Geirsgata street (I think there may be more than one location) when we were looking for an inexpensive place to have dinner, which can be tough to find in Reykjavik. The atmosphere was fun and though the restaurant is small, we were able to find a table. We ordered classic beef... More

Great tasting burgers and generous amount of fries! Came around 6pm for dinner and the place started filling up real quick so get there early if you can as there is limited seating - otherwise you can get take away.

Went here with my partner & we both had veggie burgers and a large fries to share. Came to about £23 which isn't horrific for Reykjavik. The food was really, really tasty and given how busy it was the service was super quick, and the guys were lovely :) The only thing I would say was that trying to find... More

As a backpacker, sometimes I cannot spend much money on food; so I luckily found this place and I loved it!! It is small but you will find more locals than tourists. It has a very good vibe and you can interact with friendly Icelanders, I shared a table and had some interesting conversations with locals. The burgers are good,... More

We were advised to go here by our food tour guide and were not disappointed. Simple, tasty burgers cooked over an open charcoal grill. Their 'deal of the century' (burger, fries and soda) is 1900isk which is about as cheap as you'll get in Reykjavik and definitely worth it.

The hamburgers were very good and generous portion of fries even when you order a small size. Price is typical of Reykjavik, little of the expensive side, expect to pay $20 US for burger, fry and Coke.

It's a simple burger joint but there was something about the burgers I couldn't get enough of. I ate there 4 or 5 times over a week. It's a cute little building with very limited indoor seating and a few tables outside, but we never had an issue sitting to eat - even if we had to share a table... More

This looks like a cheap fast food spot, but of course those don't really exist in Iceland. It is cheerful, however, and the burgers in the "Offer of the century" are good, fully garnished. So if you do want a quick bite before whale watching or Northern Lights without completely breaking the bank, this is the place to do it.... More

If you are looking for a quick burger in between tours this is the place to go! Wish I knew there was mayo on it though. Still was good.
