In Dublin: The Best Burger?

When I travel they are always the thing I’d choose, they are a safe option. Also my friends and I go for burgers quite a bit, when we were younger we’d go to Eddie Rockets, when you walk in the doors a layer of grease descends on you and you end up eating way too much and feeling like a ball going out the door, it’s the perfect way to destroy your healthy eating. When deciding where we’d go, we realised that we’d grown out of Eddie Rockets. It’s time to move on to better things.

The Counter

 To give you context this chain has restaurants all over the US, Australia, Malaysia and the Middle East. Oprah has said this is the best burger in America! So you know when O likes it, it’s good! Ireland has two restaurants, one in Dundrum and one on Suffolk street. The inside is nice and warm with nice decor. You can eat at the bar but there is not much room for big groups, it’s tables of two are four so if your panning a shin dig you may want to plan ahead. One thing to note is that there will be a queue to eat here and they don’t take your name but the wait time in my opinion was worth it!

They have menu items or you can build your own. Perfect for the fussy eater/children or vegans as they cater to vegans and vegetarians.! Lots of veggies for you and they have vegan cheese! As you can see from above, I went with a less green choice  and more of a give me crispy deliciousness. Also as a treat I chose a Bundaberg ginger beer (€3.25) , my favourite beverage, it was the perfect accompaniment to the burger.Now for the show stopper. The burger itself. It was delicious. The only thing that was missed is that you can choose how you want you burger and my dining party would rather a medium well rather than well, which I agree with. To cater to people like my father, who love a good burger but wants it to be pink in the middle they should have that option. The fries were so good and the sweet potato fries were crispy and moorish ! The crispy onion strings made the burger and the bacon was tasty and had little fat so it was just smoky and delectable!

The garlic sauce! If there is one thing that makes a meal it’s garlic. This garlic sauce is fantastic! It has enough for you to put lots on your burger and have enough for dipping.

So is it the best burger? Well it’s definitely the best one I have eaten in a long time! This meal cost my €14.40 which is an average price for a custom burger and it was close to perfect. I think it says a lot when there is a queue out the door continuously on a Friday night. So a tip would be to go early and be hungry.

I haven’t tried one of their shakes but Id also check them out, they have lots of flavours from simple to whacky.
