We visited blacks burgers last week and the food was fantastic, definitely in the top five burgers I've ever tasted. Looking forward to going back and trying something else on the menu! Keep up the good work

Fantastic waitress, great food and so much choice. I tried the buttermilk chicken burger which I would definitely have again. This is a great place to go when Dexter burger is closed - which is often!

I visited Black's as Dexter is closed on Sunday afternoon. Really disappointed. Burgers are quite bland with a source aftertaste.

I've been eating at Blacks for a few years now, and I can't get enough of their juicy lucys. Their menu is full of a really interesting concoction of burgers, and you're more than likely to find something that tickles you on it. Once upon time they produced the largest burger in Europe... not sure if they still do that.... More

Recommended by a friend, I went to try with some friends the Blacks Burgers in Purley. I ordered the Banana Bueno Filfpot Sundae. Some people have these filfpots for dessert, but I chose to have it as a drink! WOW first impressions. This sundae was delicious ! No wonder everyone wants to try. When my sundae arrived, everyone started to... More

I was really looking forward to going here. Whilst it's good I've had better burgers in he flavour department , which is a shame considering this is what they're known for. Don't get me wrong I really enjoyed it! Good sized portions and it was tasty, just not the best I've ever had. I would totally go back & try... More

While the outside suggested that it mainly about the sporty simulators that you can access here. The restaurant its self is clean, friendly and with good space to sit and very prompt service as soon as we arrived. The staff were attentive and the chefs smart and I loved that you could sit and watch from your seat the open... More

Mixed review: Good: *Friendly service *Great tasting food *Diverse menu *Clean Bad: *No atmosphere *Bare and uninviting decor (felt more like a kebab shop than a restaurant) *Massively overpriced *Shocking music (F words, N words and the C Bomb on a variety of rap music. Not appropriate for a family restaurant at 7pm) Wouldnt return, which is a shame because... More

After the normal hellish trip to Chessington World of Adventures this place was a welcome oasis. You cant book which is a bit of a pain but we went early on a Monday evening so no problem. The menu is great and as you can basically add whatever you want it becomes almost an unlimited choice of burgers. They were... More
