Square Meal Review of Meatliquor ?

A maelstrom of dude food cloaks London, and the speed with which new joints arrive means ‘the queues are finally dying down’ at this early purveyor. A torch app might be a good idea for the far reaches of the ‘Goths-R-Us’ dining room – a distressed bunker located incongruously round the back of Oxford Street’s department stores. Burgers, chicken and hot dogs are the mainstays of a menu that ‘hits the spot’: the dead hippie (a juicy double-decker with cheese and a mustardy sauce) wins copious praise, fries and sides are good, and with kitchen paper replacing napkins, no-one has to dress for dinner. The liquor side is covered by outré cocktails and the rum-based ‘house grog’, while ice cream floats cater for more childish tastes. Despite the ‘affectations’, this is ‘chair-dancing’ stuff for burger lovers.

  1. Since burgers have become an essential part of dining out in London in the past year, I’ve had MEATliquor in my eyesight as one of THE places to go to have a great burger.

    Since it was the OH’s birthday and he’s the burger connoisseur, we finally managed to drag ourselves on a weekday evening to visit the long-awaited MEATliquor.

    Located directly behind Debenham’s Flagship store on Oxford Street, the exterior of MEATliquor can’t be missed with a bright neon red ‘MEAT’ sign displayed above the entrance...

    Her Favourite Food :: Meat Liquor

    Where: MaryleboneCuisine: BurgersSwank Levels: Unrated - This place has no desire to be swankyHaving heard all the about the epic queues that greet those wanting to get into this cult destination, I decided on a much quicker way to try the majorly hyped burgers on the menu by visiting at lunch time.In the evenings Meat Liquor is ridiculously dark and ridiculously loud, more rock nightclub than restaurant. But at 2pm on a nice sunny day there was no queue to speak off and enough diners in the restaurant to give it a sense of atmosphere.Read more »

  1. Just a few minutes walk from Bond Street station, I met MBA(Mrs Burger Addict) bang on 18:30, no queue just the smell of meat wafting down the street. In we went and within seconds sitting in the middle of the restaurant on a huge round shared table...

    Samphire and Salsify :: Meat Liquor

    If you pay Meat Liquor a visit during lunch or dinner time then you’ll most likely be faced with a rather large queue. Such is the length of the queues that the bouncer (yes they have a bouncer) stamps your hand to avoid any annoying queue jumpers or pusher-inners. Even though all this seems rather daunting, I really do feel it’s worth the wait – bear in mind I’m the sort of person who once waited two and a half hours for Bubbledogs!...

    Saying it straight :: MEATliquor. You’ll drool.

    I confess, I had not been until last week. My credibility as a food blogger must be brought into question by that , but, in my defence, it was only a month ago that I started eating meat again so don’t judge the Judge too harshly. And you can’t come here without eating meat.

    I’d had one of those mornings and I needed to commit carbicide. I grabbed a colleague and told him we were going for a burger. I’m not sure it was quite what he was expecting from me but there you go. I’m bored with our internal meeting rooms and this seemed like a good substitute...

  1. Every now and then I have friends requesting to try a new place MEATliquor has no menu’s on their website. I had to google for menu, much to my delight I realised it was owned by Yianni Papoutsis, the infamous Meatwagon. I had a Philly’s cheesesteak in Peckham Rye pub last year and it was DELISH!!!

    There was a queue outside as my friend waited for me to arrive, lucky we managed to get in within 20 mins, and seated at the bar whilst we wait for tables. The aromatic scent of good greasy food instantly hits you. The place is dimly lit, red lamp lighting my friend commented that it looked like a seedy bar...

  1. I’m probably the last person to blog about Meat Liquor and having eaten there far too many times then my stomach can take I decided it was time to throw another opinion into the blogosphere. The good thing about having eaten here so much and not blogging about it till now is I’ve had the chance to see the much talked about queues, let you know when you can avoid them and it has also given me time to see if the quality and service have been consistent.

    The first time I went to meat liquor was a week after it opened and I was very excited, I had heard all about the food truck and the famed owner Yianni but...

    The Bean Spillers :: MEATliquor

    If you like your burgers, chilli beef and general american food, you will love MEATliquor. Offering american specialities like deep fried gherkins served with blue cheese sauce, and double beef patty burgers with cheese, bacon, green pepper and everything else, this restaurant is surprisingly good value and unpretentious. Its decor is somewhat unsettling, covered by splashes of black and red paint with country and western in the background, it all adds up to a fun eclectic eating experience. The food is all freshly prepared so takes around 15 minutes but the starters are quick and the liquor list is plentiful. All...

    Gingle lists everything :: MEATliquor, 22nd February

    You might say I'm a bit late to the party when it comes to MEATliquor. I would agree. I'd say I was so late that I'm arriving the next day, in fine fettle, annoying everyone who is nursing a hangover.In my defense, I did get to MEATeasy when they were in residence at that pub in New Cross, so I didn't feel the urge to rush here. You probably also know by now that I am not keen on having to queue to get into places and that put me off as well. But with the arrival of a third in the rapidly expanding MEAT chain, we felt that the queues should surely have worn off at the original premises by now.We went early just in...

    Wrap Your Lips Around This :: MEATliquor

    The food at MEATliqour is burger-centric and highly sought after. Queues are inevitable as the restaurant doesn’t take reservations, but going off-peak can help bypass the waiting. With this in mind, we arrive just after noon to a queue-less MEATliquor, feeling as if death itself has been cheated. The vibe inside is trashy, loud and darkened. Conversation from neighbouring tables feels thunderous, as if the acoustics are specifically tailored to be deafening. The walls are covered in clashing graffiti so that both the ears and eyes are overwhelmed. The tongue is about to feel the same treatment.

    There is...
