Square Meal Review of Honest Burgers Soho ?

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.

    chichangout :: Honest Burger

    After reading lots of amazing reviews on Honest Burger, I did not think much when it came to picking up a place for lunch last Saturday. We went to its Soho branch. On the arrival, our contact details were taken and we were supposed to get a text message once the table was ready. It took approximately an hour, which was the exact time that we were told when signing in on the waiting list. How clever is that!!! Definitely the biggest factor that differentiate Honest Burger from other burger places in London...

  1. I know, he's probably the only honest mechanic in New York Jerry Seinfeld (Seinfeld episode “The Fusilli Jerry”) The small venue from Brixton Village has expanded and has two other places in Soho and Camden. Honest Burgers praised by many is growing in size and popularity so it was about time I pay them a visit to their Soho branch. The placeI still was a bit reluctant as I wasn't impressed with the Brixton joint during my first visit, but I was craving for a burger plus I was in the area, and I wanted to avoid five guys and shake shack frenzy queues. Quite similar style to Brixton, white and wood atmosphere, their classic green board with the menu, small size in a quiet street in Soho, 10 to 14 tables inside, 4 outside, and a small window looking stool/bar sit. Place was packed at 3pm but still we were able to get a table in no time. A peek insideA couple beef burger options in the menu, a daily special, chicken burger, coleslaw, salad, and chips. Honest MenuI got the special and Marisol the blue cheese one with caramelised onions. Burger timeThe verdict, both were perfectly cooked medium rare as we ordered, the special was superb, a lovely melted smoked mozzarella cheese with thinly sliced nice pancetta, perfect combination and great flavours. The blue cheese one was ok, I think April Bloomfield blow any chances for me to enjoy any other decent blue cheese burgers. The damage, 14 quid for the special burger and chips. The conclusion, nice burger, I will recommend to go for the special, rosemary fries were ok, decent prices, and now convenient locations. I will give the honest guys an 8 in my scale. Great improvement since my visit to Brixton.Special oneBlue cheese oneHonest BurgersT: 020 3609 9524Burger JointApprox Damage: £12ppArea: SohoBorough: City of WestminsterTwitter: honestburgersView Larger Map

    The Cutlery Chronicles :: Honest burgers, Soho - review

    Some restaurants want to be all things to all people. Welcoming but exclusive, cavernous but intimate, classic but innovative, broad in their offerings but still specialists. It’s a format that works for a select few when mastered. But for the rest of the mere mortal dining options that line our streets, do one thing really well and there's a good chance you’ll be a success.

    Honest Burgers in Soho is the offshoot from the original branch in Brixton Market and opened in the summer of last year. Founded by Tom Barton and Phil Eles, the recipe for their burgers was refined over time through customer feedback via the small catering operation they started with in Brighton. When the unit in Brixton became available, they snapped it up as a perfect spot to settle in the big smoke and have not looked back since...

    Culinary Creep :: Honest Burgers, Soho


    It has been quite a while since I was so enamoured with a burger, but Honest Burgers limited edition American has reignited my love. Available until the 20th May, it is a glorious, melty affair of American cheese, pickles, burger sauce, mustard, lettuce and quite the hefty beef patty...

  1. While burgers are not as much in vogue as they were last year (nowadays foodies are going mad over French brasseries and bistro’s popping up all across London; think Brasserie Chavot, Balthazar, Bouchon Fourchette, Chabrot Smithfield, etc, etc), burgers still draw in many many crowds. Honest Burgers is one of main restaurants vying for London’s taste buds and they’ve received a lot of positive reviews in doing so...

    Nomface :: Honest Burgers, London

    It seems apt to write up a recent lunchtime visit to the Soho branch of Honest Burgers on the eve of National Burger Day. Just thinking about the burger now makes me wish I could have one for supper. Having read glowing reviews from the London blogging brigade I had to check it out for myself. The Soho branch is based on Meard Street and is one of three, the others in Brixton and Camden. We visited at 2pm and were seated within a few minutes.

    The menu is simple with three variations of burgers, from a simple burger, cheese and the Honest burger with smoked bacon, red onion relish, mature cheddar, pickled cucumber and lettuce. Naturally, we all settled for the Honest burger, priced very reasonably at £9 especially as it included the rosemary salted house chips...

  1. Located in Soho, Honest Burgers is fast becoming one of London’s favourite burger joints with two others located in Camden and Brixton.

    Beware that Honest Burgers will almost always be busy and just like Patty & Bun you’ll be left waiting in anticipation to be seated. However, Honest Burgers does what no other place (at least that I’ve been to) does, give your name, phone number to the host/ess and he/she puts it into a snazzy tablet and waves you off until you get a text message telling you that your table is ready...

    wetrykai :: Honest Burger – Any excuse

    Honest Burger is a favourite, so it seems like a bit of a cheat to review it, but I went, and it seems a shame not to talk about it.

    Honest Burger consistently delivers quality burgers at a pretty good price. We rocked up to the Soho branch just before six (which was fortuitous, seeing as the line was starting to grow by the time we left). They turn things over quick at Honest Burger, but I’ve never felt rushed...

    samphire and salsify :: Honest Burgers Soho

    Honest Burgers have bravely ventured out from Brixton and opened their second restaurant in Mead Street in Soho (a 15 second walk from Burger and Lobster) and adds to London’s ever growing burger scene.

    You could easily walk past this restaurant as the outside is very plain – as is the interior. White walls with wooden tables and chairs didn’t make us want to spend all day in there but the atmosphere was relaxed and the staff were really friendly. The door was left open for our entire visit meaning we sat with our coats firmly zipped up...

    Fd Over LDN :: Honestly, what you know about burgers internet?

    Another burger restaurant has ventured into the murky depths of central London. Honest burger have expanded their successful Brixton home to Mead St. just off Dean Street, right near to Burger & Lobster.
    With MeatLiquor / Market, B&L, Tommi's burger joint, Slider Bar, not to mention those mini burgers at Opera Tavern, and a new Byron Burger popping up seemingly every month, all within walking distance; is the demand for burgers going to be saturated soon? It sure doesn't seem that way...

  1. I vary rarely venture south of the river, and with home being Essex the original Brixton Honest Burgers had eluded me for some time and then somehow I have had the privilege of eating from their two restaurants in just over a week. Last Sunday I had a take away from Brixton Village, and today eating at their newish Soho location...

  1. With only 2 days and 6 hours and 30 minutes to go until I can eat meat again (yes, I'm counting the minutes too), I thought I'd hit up Veggie Burger #4 from Brixton and Soho burger stalwart - Honest Burgers. Honest Burger's veggie fritter is composed of a cauliflour, sweetcorn, shallots, coriander, onion-bhaji style 'patty', fried until dark brown and crunchy and sandwiched between two sides of a toasted Honest Burgers bun and filled with chopped lettuce underneath and a cucumber yoghurt topping. It comes with a decent portion of rosemary salted fries...
