UK Fast Food: God Save the (Burger) King

John M. Edwards 10 comments

Their menu is very similar to BK's menu in the States, but some of the special offerings caught my eye. "Melt 'n Middle? Cheese melted between two beef patties? Cool! Oh, the Texican Whopper! That'll be awesome." Sadly, the those two were far from awesome. More

Dear AHT: In London Head to #Meateasy, The Meatwagon's Pop-Up Burger Joint

An AHT Field Agent 2 comments

Last year AHT ran a feature on The Meatwagon, when owner Yianni Papoutsis was touring South East London cooking diner-style burgers to queues of people in pub gardens. Now the operation has moved to a semi-permanent location in New Cross called #Meateasy, after the wagon was stolen by some dastardly unknowns before Christmas. The small dining room above a disused pub features a small cocktail bar, dingy lighting, and menus chalked on the wall, and is jam packed five nights a week. More

London: For a Limited Time, Head to Byron for the Big D, One of the Best Burgers in London

An AHT Field Agent 9 comments

Byron is London's fastest growing burger joint with 14 locations and counting. Their traditional burger is a six-ounce patty of Scotch beef served on a rather bland roll. In spite of the poor bread choice, Byron's standard patties are decent enough and are a good value at £6.50. But each February, Byron teams up with a historic butcher shop to create a truly remarkable burger, the Big D. More

Lucky Seven Offers Commendable Burgers in West London

Ibrahim Salha 11 comments

In their words, Lucky Seven Diner is a "tiny neighbourhood East Coast American Diner" with a "cult following." Opened nearly a decade ago by local restaurateur Tom Conran, Lucky Seven attempts to recreate the "All-American Diner" feel in decor—they have a poster of Barack Obama to ramp up the Americana—and on the menu, but it's the hamburgers that prove ever popular, if slightly overpriced.

London isn't know for having good burgers, but check out the small chain Byron for the best widely available fast food-style burger in the city. They just need to change the pickles and the substandard bun to give the city a truly great burger. More
