Groovy – an American diner in Stavanger!

In the last year there has been a real hamburger trend in the area and you might have noticed my reviews about Døgnvill, Birger Burger and The Shack. In February 2017 it was time for a new restaurant opening in town: the diner called Groovy Burger & Dogs. It is located right on the city square (Torget) so I guess the location can’t get any better. When I walked in there it was like being teleported back to what I imagine diners used to look in the USA in the 1950’s and 1960’s (at last from what I have seen in Back to the future movies). There were checkered flooring, red leather bar stools and some tacky scenes of classical movies.

But the interior doesn’t really matter as long as the food is good! The menu was already on the table when I sat down and the waiter came to take my order soon after. They have burgers, hotdogs, ribs and fries on the menu and I decided to go for “A Big Hunk O’Love” – the burger with cheese, bacon, pickles, caramelized onion etc. I was also tempted to try out fries and decided to go for the sweet potato fries. It was a bit strange that the waiter didn’t ask how we wanted the burger fried and when it was served it seemed to be well done. But it didn’t really matter – the burger was excellent. The meat was juicy and I loved the sweetness of the caramelized onion on the burger. The fries were fresh and tasty – I seem to have a problem getting this right when I try to make it at home. They also have desserts on the menu including shakes but I did not get to test them out this time.
Groovy also have a license to serve alcohol and they had a few different kinds of beer on the menu and some sort of house wine.
I will definitely check out Groovy again soon. I would love to try out some of the other burger and a fries – and their desserts of course. Check out the Groovy homepage for more information about their food and drinks!
