FOOD: Atomic Burger

As soon as we knew we were heading to Oxford we needed a place to have lunch and Tom, Leanne's Husband, had put forward Atomic Burger! After quick look at the menu we had all agreed that Atomic Burger was the place to eat and our table was booked
We arrived slightly earlier than our booking time, you have to book  otherwise you have no chance of getting a table, and our table was ready and waiting. Just as well really, we'd been walking around Oxford for hours and the smell of burgers was just getting a bit too much. Looking around everyone looked like they were enjoying their meals and that just made me want my food even faster - we hadn't even sat down yet, impatient!
My eyes were soon distracted from the menu, just look at the decor. The whole place is top to toe in comic and cartoon memorabilia. Visually it is such a treat and we all had a great time pointing out our favourite cartoons from childhood. On the way to the toilets I stopped to marvel at the Pokemon cards stuck to a pillar. They have all the small details nailed - just look at the characters climbing the light shades.
Watching other people's food get served soon got our attention back to the menu where after a long look we decided on our burgers. Tom went for a milkshake, served in a glass bottle, I snuck a sip and it was the best butterscotch milkshake I've ever tasted - well it was the first one I've ever tasted - but it was great. I went for the apple juice which was delicious. 
Leanne and I both went for the Forrest Gump Burger - a plain burger (comes with salad), plain fries and the coleslaw. Potentially one of the best burgers I've ever eaten! I really liked that my meal didn't feel like a man V food challenge. Don't get me wrong, this burger was far from boring and if you really wanted to you could make your meal a challenge but I've been to far too many restaurants and ended up feeling sick from just pushing myself to finish the meal because it's there. The Forrest Gump was £8.95 and that included fries, pretty standard cost for an epic burger. 
Matt and Tom both had the same burger, the Daisy Duke which did look amazing. Burger, bacon, American cheese and BBQ Sauce inside the roll did look mighty fine. Tom mixed things up with his "Danger Fries" - yes that's what they are called. I'd say only choose them if you are more than happy with a spicy meal, the sauce gained a few comments during the meal haha. The Daisy Duke burgers were £10.50, Tom just had to pay extra to add on the DAAANGER Fries. 
To top it all off, you leave with a lolly.

Written before I decided to become vegetarian. More on that soon.
