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...

    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 a good amount of choice on the menu; a ‘dead hippie’ burger is oozy and slippery with melted cheese. Tomatoey sauce squelches out of the bun as bites are taken, dribbling down fingers and wrists with bits of onion. The double beef patties are thick, juicy-pink and covered in liquid cheese...

    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...

  6. 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...

    LONDONcalling :: MEATliquor

    So finally we get around to trying MEATliquor. This burger joint  has been well and truly blogged by everyone and his brother. It has been on my list since it first opened but for one reason or another I never got around to it. Location wise its not great, certainly with regard to footfall. At the base of an NCP car park with an unassuming entrance it is easy to miss. Let your nose be the guide however, because you can smell it well before you arrive at the door.The interior is bold and brash and more than a bit vulgar. Its dark, dingy, and loud with red neon strip lighting. This does not stop the purdy young thangs from enjoying themselves though, it all adds to the excitement. So popular is this place that timing is very important if you want to avoid the enormous queues. Our wait was about thirty minutes in total. Ten minutes at the door and twenty minutes at the bar drinking one of these, in an ice cold glass.We were craving comfort food after a serious day of fine dining the day before. Comfort food is pretty much all of the menu here so we hit the it big time.Having had a few decent burgers in recent times, but far,far from being an expert we were trusting others for directing us here as mostly the reviews have been very positive.Of course on reflection we ordered too much food. Instead of feeding two, what we had could have fed three or even four, but what was left we had it doggie bagged.So it all arrived at the same time on one tray. Clockwise as follows. Fries (£3) Deep fried pickles with blue cheese dip (£3) Bingo Wings (chicken wings £5) Slaw (£3) Onion Rings (£3) Dirty Chicken Burger (£7) Dead Hippie burger (£7.50)Both burgers were good. The chicken pattie (breast meat) was battered then deep fried. It was moist and flavoursome. The beef (two patties) again was tasty and the meat had not been overworked being crumbly rather than dense. I did not ask what was in the "dead hippie sauce" The rest of the burger consisted of cheese, lettuce, pickles and minced white onions.The onion rings and the deep fried pickles were wonderful, due mainly to the superb light as a feather, crispy, well seasoned batter.I thought the fries to be disappointing, just ordinary, We had better at Burger and Lobster. The slaw was OK too.More than anything else, apart from the food that is, everyone was having a ball. To our left and to our right frivolity reigned supreme. If you are a twosome be prepared to share a table, as we did with two separate groups during the span of the meal. Its fair to say on entering MEATliquor with its loud music and weird decor that I was unsure as to whether or not we would  like the place, but it did grow on us.For what it offers it does it well. The food overall is of a good standard. Its reasonably priced, not quite a bargain but not overpriced. Service was very pleasant. No doubt prompted by the lack of a fixed service charge.If your after a good burger and fries for about a tenner this is the place to be.

  8. 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 never found the time to catch the food truck it started the company off with on its travels. Meat Liquor is located on Wigmore Street in Marylebone and is very inconspicuous, with passersby wondering if it’s a nightclub or an extended queue for the strip club around the corner. The main giveaway is the aroma of burgers which can be smelt half way down the street. Tip; head down at around 2-3pm weekday lunchtimes for fast service and no queues...

  9. 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...

    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 the food comes on trays, the drinks in jam jars, and the seating encourages strangers to sit together. The staff were friendly and helpful and there was a real mixed bag of clientele. The burgers aren't massive but top up with some chilli fries, onion rings and finish with quack pie if you want to feel adequately stuffed. Queues are around the block for this place in the evenings and weekends so your best bet is Monday-Friday lunchtimes to guarantee a table...
