This burger bar.

It was situated in Great Victoria Street in Belfast City centre in the late 70's/early 80's, just above the Beaten Docket bar. All it's burgers were named after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and it was hugely popular. We were talking about old Belfast eateries at lunchtime and after going through the usual, Lord Hamill's, Kens (best burgers ever in Belfast), Ringos, Isibeals, Spud-U-Like etc, I mentioned this one. But none of us can remember it's name and we've even rung round friends and family and although most remember it, none can recall the name.

If anyone here can, please help.

OMG - I was racking my brains over that all night.

There was one in Ballyhackamore as well - it's now Arnolds - the burgers there are still quite tasty.

NOOOOO! Me and a colleague got food poisoning from Arnolds at Ballyhack a couple of years back. We were doing overtime and it was either Maccy D's at Dundonald or KFC/Arnolds. We plumped for a Chicken Tikka kebab from Arnolds and spent the next couple of days blasting from both ends. Never again.

Oh dear - sorry to hear that. I can't comment on their kebabs, as I've never had one, but I don't think you can beat their hawaian burgers (not sure what it was called in the Nibbler days)

I used to love Nibbler's hot dogs, bought on the Antrim line in Glengormly in the late 1980s. I remember this was a Saturday afternoon using haunt with friends from Ballyclare. A few games of R Type on the machine in the video rental shop on the same row of outlets, then down to Nibblers (then beside Kentucky Fried Chicken, before it became known as KFC). Happy memories and absolutely no doubt that Disney did not licence the use of the seven dwarfs.

Ha- didn't notice that
What was the burger bar in York Street called, the one next door to the taxi place? They did a nice hawaiian burger. They were especially nice in the early hours of a Sunday morning after a night out at the King Arthur, followed by Jules in Royal Avenue. It was a very long time ago...
