Welcome to the burger joint
Since opening in August 2009, the burger joint has earned a reputation for selling the best burgers in Bristol.
We are unique in our combination of quality and value. We´re serious about food, and want everything here to be the highest standard and best quality – burgers, sides, salads or drinks. We´re convinced that you´ll agree that the quality and value are outstanding. Others clearly agree – over the 3 years we have had some outstanding reviews and have consistently been among Tripadvisor´s top-rated restaurants in Bristol (including, from time to time, No 1). And now we have been judged Bristol's top burger restaurant in the Bristol Good Food Awards. Click here to see some of the reviews
Whether you dine in our licensed restaurant, or take your food away, we can guarantee you an outstanding experience.
STOP PRESS – BEDMINSTER OPENING
It took an age to satisfy the Planning and Environmental departments of the council that we would absorb our own smell and not drown Bedminster in noise. But we have, and the builders will move in shortly. Looking for a late-spring opening.
STOP PRESS 2 - BEST BURGERS IN BRISTOL!
We've said it. You've said it. Now it's official!
30 June 2013. BURGER JOINT WINS BRISTOL GOOD FOOD AWARDS 'BEST BURGERS' CATEGORY!
STOP PRESS 3 - BEST BURGERS IN BRITAIN!
Thanks to George Osborne for putting gourmet burgers in the headlines; and thanks to the Daily Telegraph for identifying the 10 top burger restaurants in Britain - among them, yes, the burger joint! Click here to see the article
And In its search for Britain's best burger, shortlist.com has tried 150 restaurants nationwide and described the burger joint's as "something approaching burger perfection". Only 14 others matched our top rating. Click here to see more (review on April 19th).
And now the Week Magazine (26 July) listed the burger joint among the best 6 Burger Restaurants in Britain! Only one of the others was outside London.
We hate to turn people away, so it's always best to ring ahead and book - especialy for weekend evenings (though most evenings get busy). If you turn up and there's no table we're often able to take your phone number to call when one becomes available.
