    Had one of these open up in my local shopping centre - Touchwood, Solihull - last month, so decided to give it a try, as I'm a burger freak, I love most things burger. So just me and the other half for lunch then, and here's what we ordered: 1 Classic Burger, 1 Bacon and Cheese Burger, 1 portion of Chips to share, Side order of Battered Onion Rings, Still mineral Water for her, and a Diet Coke for me. Guess how much this costs?..... .....wait for it..... .....£21.50p! LOL!!

    OK the burger was not bad, the relish is really nice, everything was fresh, the chips and onion rings all went down well, I enjoyed the meal, but I wouldn't go again. That's just too much to pay for what essentially is a few burger and fries with a couple of drinks. Think I will stick to Burgerking and get the same amount for under a tenner, or even going to Harvester's with the unlimited salad cart is better value for the money.

    Food - 8/10
    Value - 3/10

    Went to this place again yesterday with the other half. I think they are struggling with 5.99 meal deals and 15% off with student cards... still cost me 16quid for 2 burgers, chips, onion rings and 2 drinks.

    Tasted better the first time round also, so not looking good.
