Best burger I've ever had

I have been meaning to eat here for ages and I'm so glad I was finally hungry enough to go in. It is situated in Bloomsbury, in an interesting area and is easy to get to from Russell Square, Kings Cross or Euston. The restaurant is small and cosy and seems very popular. It has a well designed... read more

Despite it’s small size Burger and Shake packs a punch. The food is great, the atmosphere is great and the milkshakes are awesome. The chili dog I had was served with a generous portion of fries and was suitably hot and really tasty. Served in a classic metal dish, and supported by a delicious chocolate milkshake (also served in the... More

If you're hankering for a really good burger, don't what ever you do go to one of the big franchises. This is the place for you. The burgers and the shakes in this brilliantly named restaurant are both fantastic. There is a good range of burgers to choose from. I went for the house burger and chilli fries, which were... More

Really disappointed with the service, came on a Saturday afternoon and the waiter looked like he didn't want to be there. Burger was OK, price reasonable and my friend said the milkshake was amazing. But I felt cramped and the service made me not want to come back... still not a tourist trap at all and if you get a... More

Came here with a group of 15 friends on a Saturday night. The service was perfect and our waiter was extremely friendly and made sure we always had everything we needed. He made great recommendations and joked around with us and helped contribute to the relaxed atmosphere. The burgers all arrived at the same time and were great. I went... More

We popped in here for a late lunch yesterday. Lunch special was great value - burger, fries and a drink for £10. The burger was lovely and chips really good! We also had a side of coleslaw which added freshness and was good too. The service was fab and there was a really relaxed feel to the place, likely as... More

Burger and Shake is a lie. They also serve beer and fries. All of them are decent. They do like to serve their burgers on the bleeding side, but if you ask nicely the staff are more than happy to reduce the pink. The jalapeno burger was tasty but a bit light on the jalapenos. Plenty of cheese though. Chili... More

this little eatery was an impulse drop in for us. Great lunch. Good quality food and a reasonable range. The best milkshake I have ever had, served in a huge shaker cannister. Banana and peanut butter. Good Mac and Cheese. 1 step access. Nice staff. will definitely return next trip.

We would have never known about this place without trip advisor! Staying at the doubletree and wanted something quick and near. So glad we did as excellent service and decent food, sauce in my bbq wings was very nice. And my bf said his burger was also top notch, cooked to perfection Proper American shakes!! My fave!! Seriously recommend!!
