The best burgers in London

I’m partial to a burger every now and then, not one of those healthy substitutes. A real, naughty, greasy, devishly tasty burger. The type that has so many toppings you can barely fit it in your mouth. Got the idea? Fantastic. Now that I hope you’re all craving a big juicy burger with a side of fries, I’ll let you in on where to find the best burgers in London. I assure you I have tried and tested them all, probably on far too many occasions! All of the ones I’ve listed are really reasonably priced too.



Honest Burger

As the name may suggest, whilst the burger may be delicious and everything you’re looking for all it’s ingredients are ‘honest’. All of the produce on the menu is locally sourced and inspired by British produce. The meat is probably the best quality I’ve ever tasted in a burger and the rosemary salt seasoning on the chips is AMAZING. They started out in Brixton but have gradually expanded to 8 sites across London, you have no excuse to not go and find them.



Dirty Burger

If you’re not a member at Soho House, which is probably the majority of people, then head to Dirty Burger to experience equally delicious burgers as the ones they serve in the houses. It’s food definitely lives up to it’s name. With 4 locations in London: Vauxhall, Whitechapel, Shoreditch and Kentish Town, be sure to pay them a visit. You won’t be disappointed!



Tommi’s Burger Joint

This is potentially my favourite out of this selection of burger bars. On occasions I’ve visited I opted for the steak burger with chipotle mayo and sweet potato fries. But also be sure to ask what their burger of the month is, it’s usually pretty sensational. They have a joint on King’s Road as well as one in Marylebone, so if you’re in the area, seek one of them out and treat yourself.



Patty & Bun

Be prepared to queue, there’s no bookings and if you’re there on a weekend get there for opening time. The original Patty & Bun can be found on James Street off of Oxford Street, they’ve also recently opened their Liverpool Street branch. The Ari Gold Cheeseburger is pretty sensational, I’d highly recommend picking that one when you visit.

boom burger


Boom Burger

This one is a burger joint with a Jamaican twist. Also known as, the perfect burger. You’ll find these guys on Portobello Road in Notting Hill. Be sure to order the plantain fries, Boom Burger and wash them both down with a rum punch. Certainly the perfect combination for a long summers night, maybe not the perfect choice for your summer bikini body!




The pulled pork burger… Need I say more. Well actually yes, I probably should. Hache is spread across London in Camden, Chelsea, Shoreditch, Clapham and Balham. Whether you’re after a beef, chicken, veggie or lamb burger, Hache have it all. Unlike some burger places that branch out into too many variations of burgers with quality suffering, these guys have nailed it. Be sure to check them out for a naughty dinner.



Bleecker Street Burger 

Now if you manage to find a better burger coming out the side of a van I will be very impressed. Tender, juicy, melt in your mouth. Every cliche description fit this burger van perfectly. They’re usually located in Spitalfields Market but have been known to roam down to the Southbank in the summer months. You must visit, they’re sensational!

dirty bones


Dirty Bones

Located underground off High Street Kensington, this hidden gem is sure to get your tastebuds tingling. Actually I’ll rephrase that, you will be drooling at the sight of the food coming out the kitchen. Whilst they prize themselves on their variations of hot dogs, their burgers warrant a visit on their own. It’s definitely dirty but what good burger isn’t? You should also order a side of Mac and Cheese because, well, what meal is complete without mac and cheese?!

    Dirty burger is the most disappointing place and I’ve been to two of them. I also don’t understand why Bleeker Burger is at the top of the lists. I’ve been three times and I’ve never been satisfied. The burgers are in no way filling and the fries are overpriced. The rest on your list are always worth a trip. Tommi’s is definitely the best followed by Honest.

    Those burgers look amazing. I love a good burger. Mac n cheese on a burger is delicious. Wish it was possible to tell what is on the other burgers.

    Great list! I’m headed to London the end of this month and can’t wait to try a place or two. I’ve only visited Honest Burger thus far and loved it.

    Patty & Bun is my favorite place! I love the stalls in Borough market too!

    Bleecker Street Burger is amazing, it’s like a really good quality McDonald’s burger (in a good way!). Their espresso shake is delicious as well 🙂

    Probably the best burger I’ve had has been from the Shake Shack in NYC. They put some sort of special sauce on their burgers that makes them absolutely irresistible!

    A good list, but I would have to add Meat Market.. my favourite by far!
