What did you think?
I thought that it was great.
I love the way that they are bringing the American diner theme back, so it is like a great big service station because you can get your car washed at the same time.
What did you have?
I rose to the challenge and had The Empire State Burger (£25) which is three beef patties, six strips of crisp bacon, and three slices of Monterey Jack cheese, pulled pork and also some fried meatloaf.
Served with a side of fries, onion rings or salad. I washed it down with a £3 milkshake – Hershey’s Chocolate (chocolate ice cream and Hershey’s chocolate topped with whipped cream and flakes of chocolate) which was amazing.
What was it like?
The burger was really filling and while I like a challenge, I’d definitely bitten off more than I could chew!
It was really nice though – the bacon was crispy, the onion rings were on top of the burger which added a lot of bite to it. It was a great meal and a massive meat feast was just what I needed.
Who did you go with and what did they have?
I went with my brother and he had the Banoffee Ripple shake and the £10 Half Rack Of Ribs with fries and slaw, which was surprisingly big as well.
He loved it because it had sweet barbeque sauce and the meat was super juicy and just waiting to come off the bone.
Mrks out of ten?
I give it eight because the burger was amazing but some of the fillings weren’t as good – such as the pulled pork and the coleslaw.
Would you take a girl on a date there?
Only if you’ve got a car...
