We were in town so decided to try out Route 15 American Diner on Ravendale street. It’s one of those places I’ve passed on occasion but never thought to go in.
It’s a small place with a cozy and warm atmosphere. There was a large party of people booked into one booth and a family in the last and we all ordered around the same time. To say that there was only two kitchen staff the waiting time wasn’t long at all.
Our order was taken from our table and we chose the Route 15 Sloppy Joe Deluxe (a burger topped with chillI con carne and cheese and the Route 15 deluxe which contained bacon, salad, cheese and a burger all served in a brioche style bun.
For the price this place is very reasonable with the average burger meal costing around £7 and special board burgers at £9. There is also a range of hot dogs, waffles, pancakes, milkshakes and smoothies.
I won’t say the actual beef burger itself was the nicest I have tasted but it didn’t appear to be out of a packet and it’s just personal preference to how you like a burger to taste. The actual burger meal as a whole was quite nice topped with a homemade crispy onion ring on top. The fries came in a little metal bucket and you got quite a lot. They were pretty tasty with bit of potato skin left on.I would have prefered some homemade coleslaw as it did just taste like the supermarket own brand. I did like the presentation of the food on the wooden boards.
I liked the decor and atmosphere of the place and the staff were friendly enough. It is quite a good place to pop in for a meal whilst shopping in town or a meal out with friends.
We didn’t manage a pudding or a milkshake but I aim to go back soon and try one out. We did however order freshly made smoothies to go before we left.
We would definitely return again. It’s a nice little hidden gem in the town centre.
