Located on St Stephen's Street in Bristol's city centre, Burger Theory's aim is to push the boundaries when it comes to what can go inside a humble burger, coming up with whacky flavour combinations inspired by global flavours to create never-tried-before creations. The idea was founded in 2012 by chef Rory Perriment who started out by popping up at festivals and food fairs. Now, Burger Theory can be found at weddings, music festivals and street food events across the country, in addition to this site in Bristol.  

Using fresh, seasonal ingredients is a top priority for the burger joint, which sources its produce from local suppliers and only uses high-welfare meat. At this flagship joint on St Stephen’s Street, it serves all its signature burgers alongside craft beers, cocktails, fresh juices, dirty fries and epic cheesecakes. It also caters for veggies and vegans, so everyone’s welcome! 

Signature burgers include Cheese Theory which is stuffed with two beef patties, cheddar, American cheese, house pickles, dijonnaise and house ketchup, its take on KFC featuring Korean fried chicken thighs, sticky chilli sauce and peanuts as well as Cheeky Clucker, which includes buttermilk fried chicken, American cheese, honey chipotle sauce, ranch dressing, gherkins and crispy bacon bits. Needless to say, the burgers here are not for the faint-hearted. There is also a selection of starters, loaded fries, veggie and vegan burgers as well as dessert – if you have room! It's great for families, too, thanks to a dedicated child-friendly menu.  

Wash it all down with one of its draught or bottled craft beers, or why not check out one of the house spirits on offer? Wines, cocktails and milkshakes are all on the menu, if you prefer.
