SquareMeal Review of Byron Strand

‘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.

Byron continues the American burger trend in London and like the other Byron restaurants offers a fantastic range of "proper" burgers. Living locally to the Waterloo branch I have always been treated with great regard and warmly welcomed. Service is very friendly without being over bearing. It's hard to pick from their extensive burgers when you you have a favourite in mind but that does not stop me sampling their range when i can. Sides come extra but value is decent and I am a big fan of their updated beer range. Highly recommend if you are in town looking for a casual but memorable experience.
