I will start by saying we are not fast food fans, but we had heard so much about this iconic spot, we chose to pick up a quick meal. The chicken burgers are tiny and consist of chopped chicken bits with mayo on the bin. The buns were steamed, so by the time we got home (5 min), they were... More

There is so much hype about the Chickenburger. It has been a landmark in Bedford for many years. When we went for lunch we were very disappointed- the chicken burgers were small, bland & over priced! We questioned how and why this place is so popular.... We won't hurry back!

70 or 80 years. Impossible to mess this place up. If you're in Bedford, you have to try it. Their hamburgers are just as good as their cheeseburgers.

Chicken burger was bland. Just chicken - tell me when I'm ordering that you have to add extras - don't assume I know that! Milkshake was thin and expensive for what it was. They forgot to give us an order of fries - we went back and the gave them to us but when we asked why nothing was on... More

Fun place to eat. Love the atmosphere. Always take my grand child. Hamburgers are my favourite. Love the steamed buns. Love the juke box and fifties dinner atmosphere.

Once a must visit local restaurant, the Chicken Burger is a big disappointment now. The new owners have changed the famous chicken burger recipe into a dried out bland thing no one would want to eat. Maybe if enough customers vote with their feet and go to far better restaurant choices they will bring back the original that everyone loved.

The atmosphere is the only reason we keep returning.. it has been same for 30 years. but the food quality and portions.. Hamburger is so small and the beef is not good quality.. chicken burger sometimes has small bone...The lure of the onions cooking while in the area.. but be disappointed.. you don't get much.. even when you ask.. Fish... More
