Bleecker Street Burger
Bleecker Street Burgers were founded in 2012 and, since then, their matt black burger truck has become a fixture on London’s fast food circuit. Keeping it simple with quality beef from The Butchery in Bermondsey, a sesame seed bun, scratch burger sauce and good old American cheese, these burgers are accompanied by all the old classics: fries, sodas, beers and shakes.
OUR PICK: The Bleecker Black – Double beef, double American cheese, black pudding, onion and sauce
MEATliquor does exactly what it says on the tin. Serving beef and booze is a mainstay of this London-based restaurant chain who encourage you to “come hungry, leave wobbly”. But, thanks to sustenance sensations Deliveroo, you can get some of the best burgers in the country delivered directly to your door.
OUR PICK: The ‘Dead Hippie’ – 2 French’s mustard-fried beef patties, Dead Hippie sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, minced white onions
In 2011, the first Honest Burgers opened its doors. With a simple, quality-focused menu the company has not deviated from its original approach — to do one thing, and do it well. The names of the burgers tell you exactly what you’re getting, and you will not be disappointed.
OUR PICK: The Stilton – Beef, red onion relish and lettuce with stilton, served with rosemary salted chips
Josh de Lisser, founder of Boom Burger, spent his early life in Montego Bay, raised on the vibrant Caribbean flavours of fresh jerk chicken and fish from the ever-sizzling barbecue. Now, de Lisser is serving those very same explosive spice combinations in the heart of London. Jamaican influences, British-bred beef, winning combination.
OUR PICK: The Dutty Butty – Sweet-cured bacon topped with a fried egg, bacon jam, lettuce and tomato on a bed of fresh avocado salsa
Tommi's Burger Joint
The first Tommi’s was opened in Iceland – in 1981. Now, there are two in London, and we’re very glad the brains behind the operation, Tomas Andres Tomason, decided to make the chilly trip across the Atlantic to bring us his brilliant burgers. Wholesome, filling and, like almost all of the businesses on this list, simple, Tommi’s won’t let you down.
OUR PICK: The Texan – Chilli glazed BBQ beef patty, smoked pulled pork, garlic slaw, chipotle mayo
