best burgers in bristol?


It’s hard to fault The Burger Joint: the beautiful restaurant, great service and vast amount of choice on the menu generally always make for a great meal – and with that number of breads, patties, toppings, sauces and sides to choose from, you could probably eat there every week of your life and never have exactly the same order. Pretty impressive.

Bristol’s not short of brilliant gourmet burger spots, but few would disagree that the best of the bunch has to be The Burger Joint, which not only tops our list of Bristol’s best, but has been consistently praised by everyone from Shortlist to The Daily Telegraph as one of the finest in the entire UK.


The Burger Joint is, in fact, the burger king when it comes to offering the best food of its kind in Bristol.


I can’t name a better burger in the city … and with a good soundtrack to eat to, always good music in here. We were definitely two stuffed and happy customers.

Foodwise, The Burger Joint was a lot better [than the other restaurant in the review] and I would definitely go there again.

After soldiering through one of the biggest portions of food I´ve ever been served, at less than a tenner a head, the verdict was unanimous – we had probably just discovered the best burgers in Bristol.

I thought I would start with the best of the best. The Burger Joint like getting a McDonalds but 100,000,000,000 times better.

At The Burger Joint you’ll find amazingly tasty burgers, a cracking atmosphere and superb customer service. they are the best burgers around. [And] as brilliant as the burgers : the service.

The next step for The Burger Joint must surely be to roll it out elsewhere in the region – and then really give the American chains a run for their money. It’s certainly good enough.

The meat comes from butcher Ruby and White’s; the buns are artisan ciabatta; ingredients are locally sourced – no wonder this is the best place to eat burgers in Bristol.

Now you’re thinking with such a big plate of food, that is such a high quality using ethical and local ingredients, that it will cost a fortune. Wrong! It’s a crazy bargain for an amazing meal. Also the staff are incredibly welcoming and helpful, making the eating experience a really pleasant one.


In terms of both freshness and flavour, I can honestly say that it was the best burger I’ve had in Bristol to date. I ordered mine with a side of hand–cut thick chips – more like potato wedges than chips, and with the skin still on, which made me very happy.

My friends and I opted to trek all the way from Gloucester Road. Although our ´first choice´ served up a catalogue of errors which caused us to jump ship, the pull of The Burger Joint´s undisputed reliability factor led to a burger-based pilgrimage across town. I really can´t recommend The Burger joint enough; The Burger Joint is definitely the best of its kind in our beloved Bristol.

When the gods invented burgers, this was what they had in mind. By using top–quality ingredients freshly prepared and cooked to order, the Burger Joint was transforming a fast – food staple into some very fancy eating indeed. Keep it simple, and quality ingredients speak for themselves.

I don´t remember a single mouthful I didn’t enjoy. Right now if I go to any other burger place I’ll wish I´d have gone to the burger joint instead.


Shortlist gave this place the perfect 5 stars. Tripadvisor rank it the second best burger restaurant in the UK. Even the Daily Telegraph rank it in their top 10. And you have to say, the accolades are deserved, and the customer experience is second to none.
