SquareMeal Review of Guerilla Burgers

Occupying a bold corner site & shouting ‘power to the patty’ from the rooftops, Guerilla Burgers also has ‘a treat after Oxford Street’ written all over it. Funky artwork, a hippie rock soundtrack & clued-up staff complete a package that is all about a cool version of comfort, from mugs of tomato soup with ‘soldiers’ or oozy-topped nachos to nine kinds of burger including classic, cheese & rodeo, plus a couple of veggie options. Cooked medium, the patties (& their seeded buns) win more friends than the crinkle-cut chips. Health-conscious customers will find low-fat versions & salads on their side, though they may be toppled by the creamy milkshakes. Noisy, rumbustious kids are treated to their own menu, while grown-ups can order from a short list of beers, wines & mixed drinks.

The burgers at Guerilla are quite tasty. I had a classic hamburger and asked for a slice of aubergine to be added. So it arrives: a nice bun, not one of those cheap factory ones, but a half white/wholemeal one with linseeds, that is soft yet lightly toasted. It was filled with a medium cooked burger which juices were soaked up by the bun below, the meat was good – no complaints. The topping of lettuce, tomato, onion and the slice of grilled aubergine were fresh. It all came with a homemade salsa, which was ok. I missed some chillie in it. I'd go back to try some other burgers, especially the low fat ones made of ground turkey sound interesting. The only negative thing were the fries – I had one single chip and did not want anymore. Unfortunately they did not taste good. I suspect they were frozen. Service was good. Our waiter came up to us enquiring why we didn't eat the fries – I liked that. I told him that we liked the burgers but not the fries, he looked disappointed. Overall a decent fun place for burger enthusiasts and their children, because its colourful, quick and offers more healthy options than other burger places.
