Really friendly place to have a meal. We had the house burgers and they were very good. Locals use this place too so you know it's not going to be too expensive (as Iceland goes!)

Just one street down and within easy walking distance of the Arctic Comfort Hotel. Kinda weird decor with lots of old photographs on the walls, a bunch of old-fashioned lampshades hanging in the entrance area and copper jugs, pots and other ornaments on bookshelves. However, don't be put off by the decor - the service was excellent and friendly and... More

Both very nice. We watched most of Basketball game live on TV which was great! This was the cheapest meal we had whist in Iceland! No... More

Service was extremely quick and the burgers was amazing! 4 different burgers ordered and all of them devoured with satisfaction. Thoughts by all 4 dining persons were to order seconds however that would have prevented us to move anywhere (over-full)! The guy who served us (who I am sure may have been the owner) was very friendly; welcoming and comical.... More

The Hamburger Factory produces square burgers! Succulent and tasty, with lots of variety. Generally we are not burger people but these were so good we went twice! And I can recommend the sweet potato fries. Another advantage is that it is just round the corner from the Fosshotel which makes it very convenient. If you don't have a booking you... More

A bitoff the beaten track but if you are a resident or staying in this part of town then this is a great find. Extensive selection of burgers, fries with jackets on (delicious) and viking beer (always a bonus). Burgers were hearty and delicious and very reasonably priced. American style layout with sports bar type tv screens everywhere. Well worth... More

As resident of Iceland tried many other joints with "good reputation". None of the others comes near this place (so far). Good and tasty burgers , beer and a sport bar! This is not a tourist trap so I'm also recommending it to travellers. Hope they'll stay like this. Garderp , Reykjavik

We loved this place! From the outside, we weren't sure what we would find, but I am so glad we took the chance to go in. Lovely, friendly proprietor and delicious food. Very comfortable and had great, personal service.

We found this bar just around the corner from our hotel. It had a very warm and welcoming atmosphere and the staff were lovely. My and my partner both had a burger, the portions were big and the burgers were delicious! We will definitely visit again.
