At one point, it was pretty hard to find a burger restaurant in London that wasn’t McDonald’s, Burger King, or some other American fast-food staple.  Today, you can find a good burger restaurant in just about any part of London, each serving up big juicy patties that look like the average Briton’s daydream of American food excess—which means they look absolutely delicious.  With so many burger joints to pick from in London, we’ve narrowed down our list to five of the best from across the city.  If you think we left one out, let us know in the comments.

Patty & Bun

Just about anyone can make a good burger, but the toppings and sauces really help it to stand out.  These are things that Patty & Bun do amazingly from their own relishes and mayos.  Meat comes from HG Walter, cheese from Neal’s Yard, and the brioche buns from Bread Ahead all combine to make some of the best burgers in London.  The most recommended is the “Ari Gold”, which is the standard cheeseburger that has a “Smoky P&B” sauce.  They also offer DIY burger kits for those who want to put it all together themselves.

Burger & Beyond

Local, fresh ingredients are at the heart of Burger & Beyond’s appeal, with the meat coming from their own farm in Colchester.  From humble market stalls and food trucks, Burger & Beyond has climbed up London’s burger society to have its own restaurant in Shoreditch while still doing delivery during the pandemic.  The cheeseburger itself can be quite a mouthful, but the daring may want to try the Bougie Burger, which has double American cheese, steak sauce, beef fat onions, and “Marrownaise” (mayo made from bone marrow).  You can also have “Dirty Tots” for your side, which are tater tots with cheese, bacon, and hot sauce.

Bleecker St Burger

Zan Kaufman decided to ditch his career as a lawyer to follow his true passion of flipping burgers and making some of the best burgers in all of London.  The menu is rather simple but it when you do something well enough, simple is all you need.  You can pick from a cheeseburger, double cheeseburger, bacon cheeseburger, and bacon double for the sake of simplicity, but a highly recommended burger is the Blue Burger with blue cheese, onions, and their own special Bleecker sauce.  Vegetarians can also partake thanks to the Symplicity Burger.  Their fries are also an awesome side as you can get them with all the sauces on them or even mix and match regular fries and sweet potato fries.

Lucky Chip

You’ve got to do a bit of searching for Lucky Chip since these burger purveyors don’t have a traditional brick ‘n mortar of their own quite yet.  Instead, they serve their burgers through a couple of pubs:  The Old Queen’s Head in Islington and through a stall at Netil Market in London Fields.  The El Chappo is a popular (and spicy) selection that you can get at either location, but the Netil Market stall does a “Burger of the Month” that can be quite special.  Netil Market also offers ice cream sandwiches for a yummy end to your meal.

Burger & Lobster

Burger & Lobster is a popular restaurant chain in London that specializes in two delicious dishes – burgers and lobsters. The restaurant is known for its simple and straightforward menu, offering customers a choice between the two signature dishes, as well as a few sides and desserts. The burgers are made with high-quality beef, served in a soft brioche bun with lettuce, tomato, and a secret sauce, while the lobsters are fresh and cooked to perfection. The restaurant’s relaxed atmosphere and affordable prices make it a go-to spot for locals and tourists alike who are looking for a tasty and satisfying meal.
