They smash it

Freshly made burgers, soul food. And it's not just all about the meat, the two vegetarian options are also rather good. A milkshake to wash it down? Mhmm

Anywhere you can get a burger with bacon, chilli and blue cheese is a winner as far as I'm concerned. Always hot and fresh - just a really good burger!

Excellent burgers & a huge variety of combinations on offer. Lovely service. Call ahead, it's not a big place so you're perhaps wise to book!

The menu here is interesting as it doesn't offer any set burgers. You start from scratch choosing your own bun, meat, salads etc. You are handed a multiple choice form to fill in for your order which is different but works well. The burgers have always been exceptional here even at their old premises. Tasty, fresh, and high quality....what more... More

If I think about Burger Joint I start getting hungry. Not only the burgers are made with a great quality meat that makes them delicious, but also the possibility to compose your own burger with the toppings you like, choosing among dozens of ingredients, confer to this place the title of best burger of Bristol. No matter how long is... More

It would be naive to suggest that we are experts in the wake of a premium quality burger, thus I ventured to the 'The Burger Joint' with an open mind and an empty stomach, yet upon entry I was presented with a notepad and pencil. This wasn't Thursday night at the Bingo with Aunt Jean though, this was MY menu.... More

I went to the burger joint in search of a good burger. I was attracted to this particular place as you can build your burger to your taste. Unfortunately there is only so much you can do when the ingredients used aren't good fresh quality. From a professional point of view I can definitely say that the beef wasn't the... More

I've always hated burgers, I have no idea why, but I've never previously enjoyed them. My boyfriend however, absolutely loves them. It was my turn to chose somewhere and take my boyfriend out for food, I'd heard a few people raving about The Burger Joint so I decided to take him here! I had a good look at the menu... More
