Best burger place in town?

Delicious burgers, always well made. Wide range of toppings and sauces, so you are able to customise your burger to personal taste. Relaxed atmosphere, even though it can get pretty cosy when it is busy!

The Burger Joint on Whiteladies Road, Clifton, Bristol, serves up some of the best Burgers in the country. They are not the usually burgers found at first food restaurants, The Burger Joint serves freshly made, delicious burgers that the customers themselves get to customise and add exactly what they want to have in the burger! I created a nice juicy... More

Had a family meal out here. Atmosphere was lively, a bit too noisy if I am honest, due to the low ceilings and a very loud crowd at the next table. Food was excellent; the burgers were delicious and quite good value. Service was good.

This place had been highly recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. Despite being fully booked, the staff managed to find some space for us outside, which was actually quite nice under the sun. The menu is fun and you practically get to build your own burger. The food was delicious and this restaurant delivers 'proper hamburgers', which is refreshing... More

Can not rate this place high enough! Visited with friends on a Saturday evening, whilst the restaurant was full, we didn't feel rushed or crammed in. Atmosphere was really friendly and relaxed. Customer service was brilliant, despite a mix up with our order (these things happen) the staff could not be more apologetic or quick to resolve the issue. Gluten... More

I'm really not keen on burgers but the family are so it's something I endure. It's an interesting concept - pads of paper where you tick boxes for what you want, what sauces, sides etc. When you get used to this, it's brilliant. There's a good selection of food and, hallelujah it's not all burgers. What impressed me was the... More

Only THE best burger place in Bristol. Forget Maccy Ds, Forget Burger King, these are real burgers with taste and flavour that you wouldnt have tasted elsewhere. I think the secret is in the relish but whatever it is it must be tried to be appreciated. Open till late and have a great selection of foods, even vegetarians can appreciate... More

Wild Boar burger was really nice if just slightly overcooked, toppings choice is vast and everything is fresh. Chips could do with being thinner for extra crispness but that's just me being picky. Staff are friendly and approachable. Restaurant is clean and tidy. One of the best in Bristol for burgers

To be honest I'm not mad on burgers. Not something I would choose in a restaurant but it's kinda inevitable in a burger restaurant! The concept is interesting - you get a pad and a pencil for each of you and you tick off what you want from the ticklist on the pad. The kids wanted to tick everything!! They... More
