Square Meal Review of Byron Waterloo ?

'The best burger on the high street’ & other superlatives are regularly tossed in the direction of Byron Hamburgers, the chain that even hipsters will admit to liking. There’s nothing ‘flash or clever’ about the concept; it’s all about ‘honest, juicy burgers served medium with a proper bun’, plus fries & ‘damn fine’ milkshakes. Gourmet twists are notable for their absence, though specials surface from time to time – note the cult favourite Big D & the Uncle Sam with a glazed bun & American cheese. The attention to detail extends to the rest of the offering, including US & British craft beers, soft drinks & decent coffee. Ambience can be anywhere on the mood spectrum, from ‘pleasant hubbub’ to manic. Service puts far posher places to shame.

    Samphire and Salsify :: Byron, Waterloo

    “Home of the proper hamburger” Byron was recently sold for a whopping £100m which is a humongous sum of money for their 36 outposts across London and the UK. I think that means we’re going to be seeing a lot more of them. On a Sunday evening our burger obsession got the better of us and we popped along to Byron on the Cut, right by Waterloo. What I quite like about this burger chain is that no two restaurants look the same – each one has a slightly different look...

  2. Well what do you think? They put the statue on a giant raft and a tugboat pulled it all the way from France? Jerry Seinfeld (Seinfeld episode “The Red Dot”) As I mentioned before I was going to visit Byron again for their new special. I have been a fan of Byron’s specials, only a couple fails but is exiting that they are keeping some surprises in their menu. The restaurant I visited was in Waterloo, The Cult St almost in front of the New Vic, a big place with 3 different dining rooms. The placeInsideLe Smokey is their tribute to the French Burger revolution. Six once patty, smoked cheddar, wafer thin bacon, crispy fried onions, pickles, lettuce, and smoked chilli BBQ sauce. An Oreo milk shake with malt and onion rings completed the order. Burger timeMilkshakeThe verdict, really nice, really nice flavour, the burger was pink cooked between medium and medium rare. The crispy onions were superb nice crunchiness, great melted cheddar, BBQ sauce was nice, I was afraid that the sauce was not going to work but it played pretty well. Milkshake thick and nice, onion rings nice, a bit oily but the flavour of the batter was spot on The damage, 9.75 quid for the special burger The conclusion, a really nice burger. I have to say the crispy onions were the highlight of the burger. I will give Le Smokey un huit (8) in my scale. Hurry the burger special will be in the menu until the end of the month.Le SmokeyByronT: 020 7633 9882Burger JointApprox Damage: £18ppArea: WaterlooBorough: SouthwarkTwitter: byronhamburgersView Larger Map  |  Get Directions  |  View Bird's Eye
