I went here mainly for convenience as it was near my hotel. I liked the 1950s theme. The staff were good, very friendly and attentive. I had a cheeseburger and fries... it was fairly simple, not the sort of lavish burger you get in some specialist burger places. However at less than 10 euros for a burger and coke, it... More

We loved the decor and theme of this diner. The wait staff were friendly and efficient. We had delicious pizza which was so cheap but very tasty! The peanut butter milkshake was so good I went back for more and the chocolate cake was moist and deliciously gooey! This restaurant was close to our hotel and convenient for us. If... More

Firstly the wrong food was sent, once the correct food had arrived it left a little to be desired to say the least. Soggy fries, dodgy steak, horrible sauce and just plain weird pizza! All very odd!

After getting caught in the rain on the way back to our hotel, we spotted the Great American Disaster, decorated in schlocky 50s American diner decor. The service was decent and the menu looked appetizing, so perhaps the the food was the disaster, as it left something to be desired. Perhaps McDonalds or Burger King would be better choices in...

Very good burgers, fries and the music to match. The interior decoration is on point. Very clean. Located across from the metro station Marques de Pombal.

This restaurant has decor which looks like you are in a 50's American diner. Staff friendly. Food was average, nothing special. We felt a bit old on the night we went, most customers appeared to be under 30 and one large group of teenagers were a bit loud and obnoxious, which the staff did nothing to address. Would not hurry... More

I was here two times, for dinner and lunch. It's now one of my favorites restaurants. The workers were nice and attentive, the food is great and the restaurant itself is awesome and well decorated. Next time I visit Lisbon I'll come back to this restaurant for sure.

The name of this restaurant says it all. The food was not good at all. The fries were the worst I've ever had. Its also hard to find as no signage outside to tell you to go upstairs.
