My second visit to this restaurant. I went to the last premises before they moved on a Business trip and came back when on holiday in March 2017. The food is good and the hospitality from the owner excellent. The staff waiting tables could improve a little and they seemed a little indifferent in quality. Good quality burgers, we shared one meat one (blue cheese) and a second chicken one which was chicken pieces rather than a whole breast of chicken (as was expected). Beers are good and all round the food was a nice escape from traditional Italian food, in a good location (6 minutes walk from Crocetta Metro on the M1 line). Improvements could be a better designed website with a full menu in Italian and English and better recognition of customers who had made a reservation prior to arrival (there was a communication mix up despite having pre-booked online using "the fork"). I would also not serve the animal fries as an appetiser, I'd offer them as an upgrade on the menu to standard fries which come along with the burgers. We were given animal fries and Onion rings as appetisers and then when the burgers arrived later, these also had fries with them which all in all was too much! Otherwise, I'd thoroughly recommend this restaurant for a good, fun night. Good, filling food in a relaxed and fun environment. I'll go back when next in Milan.

This is a fantastic bar/restaurant run by a lady born in England, who lived a long time in USA before finally opening this cracker restaurant in Milan. My husband loves ribs and this place did not disappoint - he was given a massive rack of babyback ribs , so tender and absolutely so authentic and delicious. Umpteen sauces to choose from and sides of fries and slaw were included. I had the pulled pork and can honestly say it was the best I have ever had!! All of this was washed down with some craft beers and a lovely mixture of chat from the host. Such a friendly welcoming atmosphere so when next in Milan I will be back. Cant recommend highly enough. Please note directions on google are wrong as it is at the top of Via Orti on the right not on the middle on the left - wouldn't want you to miss it!!.

First night in Milan I ate here, friendly waiter but rushed off his feet on a Tuesday night. I ordered a Tex Mex burger and chips, it was worth the wait. Cooked medium rare with scoop fries. I asked for sauce and they brought them all. Strong beer and an Aperol to finish. Totally weird but you have to try it. I have a Limoncello coming up next... Four stars because I waited longer than other diners and I was eating alone.

Had to grab a meal here as it was the only nearby place that was still serving food, which is a plus since most Milan restaurants stop at 3-3:30. The staff understand english which is a good thing. I ordered by burger cooked medium without ketchup and side of potato skins. As the burger left the kitchen I saw the look on the waiter's face as she realised the chef did add ketchup and she immediately sent it back and the chef cooked a new one (didn't scrap the ketchup which is good, I know this because the kitchen is visible). The new burger was cooked well without any sauce and the potato skins were overcooked as well as the cheese was dried out.

In summary dont get your hopes up, its not a bad place but defiantly not the greatest.

This American girl was homesick on the 4th of July and went for what the New York Times described as "Buffalo Wings, Milan Style." The results were tough, thick, baked knobs of bone-in chicken, none of the fat rendered under the skin. A large group of us shared some other appetizers, and none of them were good OR American. (What exactly were those nachos supposed to be... and those famous ribs were just OK.) The staff was nice, and though the restaurant was empty (this must be a lunch spot), the music was lively. However, the decor suggests the restaurant is actually British themed, adding insult to injury on America's independence day. (The burger wasn't decent, but Milan has a lot of better burgers.)
