The Thundergun really was a pleasant surprise for my wife and I. From the moment we walked through the door we felt welcome and the enthusiastic service was superb. The portions are generous and our burgers were fantastic. Can not recommend highly enough.

My second visit to this restaurant and still could not change my opinion. Both dishes I had here were oily , once fish ,once calamari . Tasteless and oily . Onion rings super oily and chips like cardboard. Definitely overrated and over rated . Food really tasteless . Sorry won't see me again
