Used to be the best burger in bristol! Really disappointed on my last visit on a Sunday evening. Over cooked butchered burger with a tiny bun that I had to send back! Next burger that came was just as bad, and no one asked if it was better. Place was empty but service was so slow. Worst burger experience I've... More

I am really sorry we did not live up to our high standards on this visit. We always pride ourselves on serving high quality burgers and delivering great service but obviously something slipped on Sunday and we didn't provide a great experience. I have spoken to the duty manager regarding the lack of communication about tables becoming available, he is... More

You get to choose your meat, bun, toppings, sauces and sides, by ticking boxes on your order slip. Don't get carried away as the portions are very generous. Super tasty.

The waiters are pretty professional. The dish is giant and incredible good. We paid £32 for 2 burgers and 2 pints of good Italian beer. Recommended!

Nice trendy cool diner type restaurant with plenty of options to choose from. The portions are big here as have been before so didn't order starters this time. I ordered a burger minus the bun with a big salad, it was delicious. It was chicken with seasoning. Our server was lovely but she did give the wrong plate out to... More

The food was beautiful. The burger was fantastic. The chips were luxurious. The sauces were saucy. Recommend the lamb and mint burger and the sweet potato fries. A friend dropped a drink and they swiftly and so politely replaced it free of charge. Really friendly staff and tummy pleasing grub. Big up Burger Joint.

We ate here for the first time this Sunday and enjoyed it a lot. The service was great; we had a very friendly waitress from Italy who went above and beyond to make us comfortable and to accommodate our needs, and the food was nice. There was more than enough food and it was definitely good value for money. We... More

Me and my partner went here for a date night earlier this week and had a small burger and chips each and it tasted beautiful! Really lovely flavours throughout the burger and a whole mound of fries, only £24 for 2 meals and 2 drinks aswell! Would definitely come here again and the menu was a super lovely touch to... More

It was something like my 4th time in this restaurant and as always the burgers were awesome. I ventured for the first time with a wild boar patty and it was definitely worth trying! The meat was so tasty! Staff are nice but a friend of mine had to ask something like 4 times to be served a beer. I... More

we have been eating here for 3 years (not continuously) and it is always great - great food, great service, great value for money. We had feared that standards might drop with time and opening of two other branches, but no - consistently great. Oddly, eating very much the same items over the three years - food is excellent and... More
