Brighton’s Burger Revolution - The Best Burgers In Brighton
Long gone are the days of the plain old chunk of minced beef (hopefully) between two bits of bread. The ever popular burger has been the main character in a new revolution in the streets of Brighton, where days of the flat, half cold “Big Mac” could be numbered. Burger joints have now become the new fine dining with many establishments now focusing on gourmet burgers and making quite a splash with features in national newspapers. Not that it needed any help but it seems that the new gourmet burger scene is once again putting Brighton on the map.
Burger Brothers, North Road - Price £5 - £8.50 (without chips)
Burger Brothers have taken the burger bar to a whole new level, raising the bar considerably high. Handmade burgers made with freshly ground beef and housed in a freshly baked bun, a far cry from your average burger bun. The Burger Brothers passion shows in their food, these guys are real contenders. The menu offers a good choice of mouth watering delights and the ‘Classic Beef’ is the biggest draw, offering a sensational beef fix to the burger lover!
Trolls Pantry, The Hobgoblin, York Place - Price £8.50 (without chips)
While the Trolls Pantry has now got major competition, ask anyone in Brighton ‘where they can get a great burger’ and this place will be their answer. The Smoky Mountain is by far the best burger on their menu. Made from locally produced 35 day aged beef, served in a home baked bun, it’s topped with smoked cheese, smoked bacon and the famous homemade peppery beer BBQ sauce which all turns this into a taste sensation.
The Coal Shed, Boyce’s Street, South Lanes - Price £11 (with chips)
A burger for the meat lover with a glorious 250g patty made from 35-day aged Aberdeen Angus chunk steak, expertly char grilled to perfection serving it medium. While the approach here is a simple burger, it lacks nothing on flavour, although it is worth adding the option smoked cheese for that extra indulgence. Served in a homemade bun and served with amazing beef dripping chips.
Busby And Wilds, Rock Street, Kemptown - Price £10.00 (with chips)
A real favourite with the staff here and while the Busby Beef Burger is on the menu every day, Tuesday night is burger night, with a mouth watering burger (vegetarian options available), fries and a beer for only £10, there’s no surprise it’s popular. With a choice of seven burgers on the menu and the option to customise, there is a tasty treat to satisfy anyone. Torn between the best with The Firestarter with its creamy mozzarella and chilli kick or The Smoke Out with its distinct Smokey flavours (both also available as a bean burger). www.busbyandwilds.co.uk
The New Club, Kings Road - Price £8 to £10 (with chips)
Take yourself to burger heaven with a bite into the Dirty Burger and let the chemistry of the complex flavours make your mouth sing. A chunky and juicy burger made with 35 day aged Black Angus with strong flavour, coupled with a hickory smoked twang from the bacon relish and smoked cheese, all housed in a brioche bun - simply perfect! Great location, excellent service, could there be a new king in town? thenewclubbrighton.com
Wagon & Horses, Church Street, North Laines - Price £5 - £7 (without chips)
While the Zombie Head Shot is the most popular on the extensive burger menu in this pub, the Dirt burger stands out. Served between two toasted cheese sandwiches instead of a bun the thick meat patty is think and juicy, tasty smoked bacon give the burger a little extra something. If however it’s a real punch of flavour you are after, why not opt for the Goat, a mouth watering delight with goats cheese, onion and sherry compote or the Port & Stilton. A great pub and some real tasty burgers.
The Globe, Middle Street, South Lanes - £7.50 to £8.50 (with chips)
With multiple options of the cheese burger on offer, all burgers are made in house using a secret blend of beef and seasoning to produce a tasty patty. Whether you like the kick of chilli or the strong flavours of blue cheese, there is something for every taste (even vegetarian). And now from the streets of Minneapolis to the tables of the popular south lanes pub, the Juicy Lucy is now served at The Globe. A burger built around a chunck of blue cheese, which melts in the middle and oozes out at first bite introducing a blast of blue cheese, a little lacking on flavour but generally very good.
Lucky Beach, Brighton Seafront - £6.50 (without chips)
Situated on the Brighton seafront, serving delicious burgers made from local Sussex Beef with just the right amount of seasoning to enhance the natural flavour. The two standout burgers on the menu are the Smokey Bacon with its seductive chipolte BBQ kick or the ‘David Van Day’ named in homage to the Brighton local, but is ultimately more tasty! For the lover of heat, the Green Chilli Cheeseburger will deliver and have you running for the sea to cool off. Great tasting burgers served in a fantastic location, although new this place will soon be a real standout in Brighton. luckybeach.co.uk
