Driven along by two energetic young owners, no-frills, independently minded Honest Burgers has gone down a storm wherever it chooses to pitch its admirable cut-price offer. Fans rate it as one of
the best burger joints in town, with a growing reputation for its custom-built patties – ‘meaty hunks of wonder’ made from 35-day aged beef (from The Ginger Pig), timed to perfection and served on
a glazed brioche bun with triple-cooked, skin-on chips and rosemary salt. Free-range chicken burgers and mixed veggie ‘fritters’ are also available, and the fact that prices are well below a tenner
is a bonus. No bookings, but the queues move quickly and it's worth knowing that Honest Burgers is licensed – if you fancy a bottle of Redchurch Shoreditch Blonde beer, a jar of Hendrick's G&T
with cucumber or a carafe of Plumpton Estate Sussex rosé.
Let's be honest here. It doesn't take much to make burgers, but it takes a lot of skill to make a GOOD burger. So if you're opening a joint that only sells this year-round classic, then every component has got to be bloody fantastic. Honest Burgers started as a festival marquee favourite in 2010. Word about the burger joint spread like wildfire across social and print media, with reviews hailing their fare as some of the best burgers in the city. Naturally, an expansion saw HB joints across London and to date they've set up six shops, the latest opening in Oxford Circus last month...

Brixton is cool now. Did you know? As if they were worried about people disputing this fact the good people of Brixton have taken the trouble to fill their undercover market with trendy foodie establishments. You know the ones; they don’t take reservations, they’re full of people drinking out of jam jars, food comes on ironic enamel plates. It’s all very sustainable, yah? Brixton MarketOne of these newfound foodie hotspots is Honest Burgers, the world’s tiniest and yet most excellent burger restaurant. As is the done thing now, the menu here is simple and small, so small in fact that it takes the form of a flow chart. Novel, I know...

Brixton village is one of those magical places where you feel you been transported into another world. They even have their own Brixton Pounds currency. This time round we did not have a specific destination we just let our minds and nose wander. Prior to this visit, I used Brixton Buzz guide to navigate through town.Wondering around we stumbled across the famous “roti lady” Tasty K then ended up at “Honest burgers”.Two chefs were frantically cooking away tossing and turning burgers like no mans business. The waitress walked us to our tables; menus were attached to a wooden clipboard.The menu was brown down into 3 columns, by starters, divided the large blackboard with rows for different meats and specials...

Honest Burgers, Brixton Market – when there are so many choices, not to mention such good choices to pick from, I wished that I had an extended stomach surgery to eat all that I could (and to not bear the consequences of weight gain would be ideal). Otherwise, how on earth am I going to decide? Standing in the middle of the restaurants in Brixton, before I could think about anything, another aroma from elsewhere has hijacked my thoughts. Then my body literally is drawn towards that fragrance...

There’s currently four Honest Burgers in London (Brixton, Soho, Camden and Portobello Road) but the one in Brixton Village is the original. To be frank I don’t do Brixton much (it scares me a little and I’m a whimp) but as I was working in the area I couldn’t resist popping in for a bit of beef. The place was tiny and very run down – but I’m talking properly run down not “we’ve spent loads of money to make it look run down”. The tiny open kitchen gave off a lovely whiff of meat and created a lively atmosphere which made sitting there all the more pleasant. The four of us arrived at 1pm on the dot and got the last seats (wahey!) after which a rather large queue formed...

Last Saturday feeling pretty exhausted after a very early start at work, an evening out of the house unwinding with drinks & good food was much needed. Honest Burgers in Brixton Village has long been on my list of restaurants to visit. I've tried to go a few times before but have always been put off by the huge lunchtime queues. As it was still well before the evening rush I thought we might get lucky & squeeze in before the hordes of burger lovers descended...

Issy knew exactly what she wanted to order – their ‘special’ at the time which was a venison and cranberry burger. I liked the fact that the menu wasn’t extensive as I can sometimes take an age deciding. I opted for the ‘Honest Burger’ which consisted of beef, red onion relish, smoked bacon, mature cheddar, pickled cucumber and lettuce and an extra of venison sausage, both came with triple -cooked chips....

I'm a bad burger blogger. I don't mean because of the all the typos, the dead-end ramblings, or the shameless self-promotion of my burger print tees (check them out, they're cool). I mean because it's taken me so long to get to Honest Burgers.For me, Honest has been like Captain Ahab's white whale, except that I didn't lose a leg to Tom @honestburgers...
