Sought out this place as it was in our lonely planet guide. Always after something other than German or Italian food. It didn’t disappoint. It was a hot day and there was air con. It didn’t cope too well as the doors were open but it was pleasant enough. The Service was fast and friendly. The burgers and fries were delicious and well priced. Highly recommend!

We wanted a quick lunch on our way up to the Castle but we did not want "fast food".
The waitress was quick to take our order (the kitchen staff was slower to prepare the meal - they do not pre-slice the meat like they do in the US). Although they are known for their American style burgers (which looked delicious being served around us) we opted for the roastbeef sandwich and the Salame Milano sandwich. Both were fresh and delicious using high quality bread and meat.
The indoor atmosphere reminded me of an 80s American diner, but there is outdoor seating with large umbrellas if you prefer the cobblestone patio feel of a traditional European Cafe.

Only about 12 tables, so it's chronically crowded, but there's high turnover so if you wait you can find a spot. On my visits I've seen an exclusively youthful crowd (teens, 20s, and early 30s). There's a quite decent if specialized selection of burger varieties, and they are very willing to accommodate requests (i.e., none of this or extra that).
I found the music a little annoying, but I'm not one of the youthful crowd.
Extra bonus: in the mens' bathroom they have put tiny goalposts in the urinals so that you can try to aim at the ball on a string and score a goal!

Rude service, no credit cards, no toilets! – all lies (well, the waiter tried to sound rude but failed). The only promise Joe Molese was able to keep was the one about great food. The place is quite small and a bit hard to spot, but worth the search. The food is straightforward, fresh and very good and the beverage selection is quite wide, so what's there not to like. It can get a bit hot with no air conditioning, but that's not a big thing as they also have tables outside. Recommended.

Yes, it's worth waiting for a table. Excellent burgers, cold beer. Not the most attentive staff - they are foregiven.
