1. Original Patty Men

The burgers here are so good that you’ll be tempted to Instagram the hell out of it, but you’ll struggle to get the photo in before stuffing this straight into your mouth. It might not be the healthiest grub in the world, but it sure looks – and tastes – amazing.

2. The Meat Shack

The Meat Shack does exactly what it says on the tin: incredible, tasty meat. Burgers here are a 5oz hefty hunk of well-aged grass fed beef, hand ‘smashed’ and cooked to order.

It might take a little while, but with toppings such as candy bacon crumbs or gouda cheese, it’s worth the wait.

3. Bonehead

Curveball alert! This is a fried chicken burger joint, but it’s our list, so we make the rules. And we say that chicken this good can hold its own in any top burger list.

Burgers are sandwiched with juicy, breaded chicken thighs, with Nashville hot sauce or blue cheese. Add on an order of the loaded waffle fries for food heaven.

4. The Rose Villa Tavern

You’ll find buffalo chicken wings, gourmet dogs, wings n’ flings, stacked burgers – all the classics, cooked to perfection at this cosy pub. But it’s those burgers you should be making a beeline for.

There’s something for everyone: a juicy beef patty with cheese; a spiced chickpea burger; a vegan beetroot and carrot burger or a boneless chicken burger.

5. Buffalo & Rye

Buffalo & Rye source top quality meats from local suppliers for truly incredible burgers. Burgers here are BIG, so come hungry and ready to feast.

Can’t choose? We recommend the Buffalo Black: a double beef patty, black pudding, American cheese, burger sauce & sautéed onion. It’s served up on a fresh buttermilk bun.

6. Gas Street Social

Gas Street Social is a trendy little spot that excels in British classics and comfort food, such as their banging handmade burgers. As well as a simple (but tasty) cheeseburger, the St. Louis is a top choice. It’s with slow-cooked pulled pork, jalapeños, pickles & American cheese.

Pro tip: come down here on Mondays for the 2-for-1 burger deal. You can’t go wrong.
