Burger Joint Reviews

Byron HamburgersUK flag icon
About:
Byron Hamburgers have several joints dotted around London, the choice of burgers is not the biggest but the selling point about this joint is quality. Freshly prepared patty's and quality ingredients make the burgers here simply divine, I ordered the Byron and added an extra patty - it was delish!

Byron quite possibly has taken GBK's burgerporn crown for the best UK burger, another trip is needed to confirm but its looking likely.

Our Verdict:
Really, really good, you just have to try it. A possible contender for UK's best burger and if burgerporn gave out awards Byron would get a XXX rated!
(the onion rings should also get a special mention, they were juicy! Oh and they serve root beer - whoop whoop)

Five Guys
About:
Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries is a fast food restaurant chain that originated in the Washington DC, metropolitan area. As the name suggests, Five Guys sells mainly hamburgers and french fries, though it also sells a small number of other items. Although it is considered a fast food restaurant, all food is cooked to order.
The Five Guys menu is centered around the hamburger with several other options available. The hamburgers are divided into a "regular" burger which consists of two beef patties and a "little" burger with only one patty. Both the regular and little burgers are offered with American cheese, bacon and a combination of the two for an additional charge. There is an extensive selection of toppings, all of which are free. Aside from the burgers, the menu includes kosher hot dogs, available with cheese and bacon, and grilled cheese and veggie sandwiches. There is only one side item, fresh-cut French fries, served boardwalk-style and fried in pure peanut oil. The French fries come in two sizes, regular or large, and two varieties, regular "Five Guys style" or "Cajun" style tossed in Old Bay Seasoning. Most locations, except for a few in food courts, offer free in-the-shell peanuts for patrons to eat while they wait for their food to be cooked. Expanding this menu, Five Guys locations at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport also sell breakfast, consisting of egg sandwiches with or without burger patties on Five Guys' buns. Notably, the Georgetown location in Washington, D.C. is the only Five Guys location that has a bar.

Our Verdict:
Amazing, these are quite possibly the best burgers we have ever tasted, there’s nothing fancy about them they are just simple burgers but work so well, we love them!! Also a special note has to be made regarding the fries as they were also some of the best.

Gourmet Burger Kitchen
About:
The idea for Gourmet Burger Kitchen originated in New Zealand. Innovative New Zealand cuisine over the last five years has extended to incorporate 'food on the go' such as burgers. Where once, the traditional burger was seen purely as a fast food option, gourmet burgers have knocked tradition on the head. Gourmet Burger Kitchen has created a nutritious sophisticated product using the best and freshest ingredients available.
The Gourmet Burger Kitchen menu offers an extensive range of freshly prepared burgers to suit all tastes and appetites. The menu offers classic flavour combinations such as Chicken, Camembert and Cranberry, and Beef, Avocado and Bacon. It then goes one step further with exciting new burger combinations such as Chorizo and Sweet Potato, Lamb and Minted Relish, or the vegetarian Portabella Mushroom burger. The specially developed GBK sauces and relishes help to define each burger.

Our Verdict:
In the UK it doesn’t get any better than this, good sized patties and tasty extras make the GBK a great place to eat.
(update, Byron has stepped upto the plate and is challenging for GBK's crown will confirm after further investigation (eating))
