Action Burger has graced Brooklyn N.Y with a real look at nerd nirvana. Great food, out of this world atmosphere, great shows, old comics and free games make it all worthwhile. The menus at Action burger has a real comic flair, using character names from the books and comic of co-owner Vlane Carter creator of BIO-Sapien. Steve Bala the other very talented co-owner uses of fast food staples like burgers and the Philly cheese steak turning the menu into a really nerd satisfying adventure. Unique taste that wow the geek and non geek alike riddle there menu. Homemade fries and comic book as decor, plus great people make Action Burger a instant win.

This restaurant will have a place in comic history. I have give action burger a 5 out of 5 because the only thing missing is a bigger store. The food is well worth the trip to this fun theme restaurant. The owners are nice the customers were super cool and the decor is out of this world. The most impressive thing was a the large M.A.M.E video game system for free with tons of games so the gamer's have a place to chill. They have just announced this week they are doing sign-ups for paintball trying to start there own team February 9, 2013. Check out my YouTube channel for more video on my trip to action burger.
