SquareMeal Review of Byron Wardour Street

‘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.

After moving to the UK I had given up on going out for a Hamburger! For “An American Hamburger” experience try Byron her is an English man who did his homework and has done it right. Like it says on the menu “PROPER HAMBURGERS” order it medium rare. Condiments on the table. The milkshake and shoestring French fry’s and real onion rings bring back childhood memories real comfort food. The staff was friendly and attentive overall an unexpected good experience

If you like great burgers – go there, it's bloody great. Kingston too is excellent, as is the Kings Road. Ask for it as rare as you like too – it's all top quality product.

Definitely one of the best burgers you can get in town. Wonderful meat cooked to perfection and lots of delicious toppings to compliment. Utterly reasonable prices for the quality of food. Very highly recommended.
