Honest Burgers are popping up all over the shop and serve up meaty-goodness all day long with a breakfast and brunch menu. Opt for their cheeseburger with dry aged beef, red onion relish, lettuce and Mature Cheddar. All their burgers come with rosemary salted chips too. Just add in a side of onion rings and bacon ketchup and you’re good to go.

Flipping out some of the sloppiest burgers in London town, Patty & Bun are famed for their juicy patties, neon signs and bangin’ tunes. You can’t beat their ‘Ari Gold’ with an aged beef patty, cheese, pickled onions, smokey P&B mayo, ketchup, lettuce and tomato.

Starting out as a street food joint, Black Bear Burger opened up their first bricks-and-mortar site in Brixton back in 2019 (they still have kitchens in Boxpark and Market Halls) and it’s been slinging out some of the best burgers in town ever since. Those burgers are made from a bespoke blend of cuts from grass-fed and dry-aged British beef and they’re so good, they only need topping with cheese, smoked bacon, onion jam & garlic mayo – you can get them with blue cheese sauce and beer braised brisket on if you’re feeling extra indulgent. The burgers may be the main event but there are plenty of other treats to discover, including brisket spring rolls (which are as good as they sound), smoked pork tacos, buttermilk chicken nuggets with blue cheese and buffalo sauces, and even smoked meat specials on from time to time too. This BBB joint also serves booze, so you can sip on cocktails, beer jugs and shot skis alongside your buns.

FIVE GUYS

1-3 Long Acre, London WC2E 9LH, UK

They may not have the most refined burger in town but when it comes to that all-satisfying middle ground between Maccy Ds and ‘posh’ burgers, Five Guys reigns supreme (sorry Shake Shack, it’s true). The burgers are big and filthy, you can choose as many toppings as you want, and they have those swishy Coke machines with endless soft drink choices. Plus, who doesn’t love their kitsch bit of retro American diner style? Definition of a guilty pleasure and one we indulge in maybe a little too often.

LUCKY CHIP

44 Essex Rd, London, London Borough of Islington N1 8LN, United Kingdom

Lucky Chip knock out some mighty fine burgers. The Royale Wit Cheese – essentially a gourmet Big Mac – is always a fave but if you’re feeling rebellious, the El Chappo, with smoked bacon, roasted jalapenos, blue cheese and ailoli, will hit the spot. And with a changing monthly special named after a celeb, you’ve got even more of a reason to go back.

Flank is all about whole animal cooking. These guys use some of the best produce from all over the country for their nose-to-tail dishes, so not only do their burgers taste good, but they’re more sustainable and ethical too. In the breakfast department you can feast on a crispy smoked pork and golden-yolked bun, or skip the meat and load your brekkie burger with mushrooms and cheese. And when it comes to the main affair, we’re big fans of the classic Flank burger, with aged ex-dairy mince of flank, chuck & short rib topped with St Giles cheese, dill pickles, onion jam, crispy onions & Flank burger sauce.
