The burgers come alone, if you want fries or anything else you have to purchase them separately, I found it odd that a burger that was almost R$40 didn't come with anything else. The burger was good, I had to send it back once because I asked for well done and it came out medium rare. When it came back... More

I had lunch in this restaurant that is famous for well made burgers. I was in the building of Sirio Libanes for a meeting. The service was great, waiters were very attentive and kind. Because I was late for next appointment, I just had the salad buffet. The atmosphere is cool, cozy and the food great. Certainly will be back... More

Burger. Nothing special. Bit expensive. Fries are so so. Than they force you to write 100 characters more. So what to say I think I summarised it pretty well. There is also nothing wrong with it. You get a solid burger and can sit well. But it is not your looking like nothing on the road joint & you get... More

Not great food. Just your typical "American" food place in Sao Paulo. One time in Shopping JK - I loved it. Another time in Market Place (by shopping morumbi) - waiters were lame and I had to beg to have them take my order. My food was good enough.

Very good burger in town. Original and with a very high meat quality. I had as an starter the mini burger with cheddar cheese and the GPB 450 grams as an honor to the São Paulo State for his 450 years. The burger was perfect! I recommend. Just one point let me down that they changed the menu and the... More
