Roadster California Burger is a 50’s style American diner on High Street Kensington. Located a few doors down from the enduring Stick & Bowl Chinese restaurant, opposite the Royal Garden Hotel, it’s hard to miss. The interior is classic…50’s diner. There’s even a little bar which has beer on tap which isn’t (thankfully) all American so you can order a burger with a pint of Stella instead of a Bud.
The burgers at Roadster are big, juicy and messy. They taste amazing. I took a bite of my daughter’s Cheese and Bacon and instantly regretted ordering a hot dog. That said, my Piggy (not the manliest name for a hot dog) wasn’t too bad either. Our fries, however, were served lukewarm and were underwhelming at best.
Service, although East European, had none of the usual friendliness and charm associated with staff from that area. I am therefore recommending Roadster for its burgers and ambience only.
Waste NOT. Want NOT.
