Best burger in Bristol

Been here a few times now and still as delicious as ever. I believe they get their beef from the fantastic butchers across the road Ruby and Whites. Such a great selection of toppings and sides. Sweet potato chips are the best choice though, trust me! Big fan of the free refill soft drinks too... read more

Had a table booked for 7pm but we were running 15 minutes late. When I phoned the restaurant to let them know I was informed that we only had the table until 8.30pm! When we arrived the 3 of us were sat at a tiny table, suited for 2 at the very best, it felt cramped even without anything on... More

A great place for a great burger. There are so many options that you can choose from including meat in the burger, burger bun, whats on top etc etc etc... Dont go here if you are indecisive.

I had one of the best burgers here for my birthday,the staff are really friendly and happy to offer suggestions on the massive list of burger options.may seem a little expensive but entirely worth the money as all the ingredients seemed good quality. I recommend booking as its a small and popular place.

Its that "what shall we eat" feeling and you decide to try a burger at an independence burger restaurant. So I had a think and remembered Byron burger and didn’t much fancy that so I looked around and remembered that I had seen this place called “the burger joint” and thought what a pretentious name. So I checked the time... More

Great variety of burgers and sides in this small restaurant - almost too much choice of variations! Served very fresh. Friendly staff.

The first distinguishing characteristic of the burger joint is their order sheets. You are each given a sheet and pencil in which you tick off which burger/topping/side/sauces you want. The amount of choice in all of these categories is quite staggering, and knowing when to stop ticking is quite a challenge. The sweet potato fries were exemplary, as was the... More

We first went on a cold wet January night, we were treated to a good sales pitch. We enjoyed a sumptuous meal and a great atmosphere. We returned to find a full restaurant, but told they would call when a table became available. They did and we were not disappointed it was very good. The burger joint lives up to... More

This place is a must! Guests are supplied with a 'cluedo' style tick sheet to place their order. Choose your burger (several different meat and veggie option) your toppings, your sources and your side. You can be as creative as you like (last time I had a lamb burger with pulled pork, onion rings and halloumi) or keep it simple.... More

You can't get better than build your own burger! All the ingredients are fresh and taste great, the additional sides are very good, they easily cater for gluten free and veggie and if you can't finish your food they'll put it in a takeaway container for you. Fab place!
