We've done the tough job of testing out Edinburgh's burger restaurants to give you our best picks
Although Edinburgh jumped on the burger bandwagon sometime after Glasgow, it has done a fierce job at catching up. New independent burger bars are battling queues at the door, chain restaurants are branching out around the city and old favourites are upping their burger game. Take a look at some of our favourite places to get your chops round some good-old tasty burgers.
This neighbourhood diner has been serving great burgers since 1972, which means it more than qualifies as an Edinburgh institution.
The Boozy Cow
A provocative punk dive bar and burger joint serving dirty dogs and punny cocktails with live music.
The Cambridge Bar
Credited with starting the burger-trend in Edinburgh, this newly enlarged pub is laid-back and cosy.
The Holyrood 9A
A well-earned reputation as one of the city's best burger bars means the Holyrood is busy year-round. Decent veggie options too.
The Lioness of Leith
Their new burger menu hits the spot, as do the cocktails, wine and chat.
Perhaps better known for their steaks and exotic meats, Shebeen's burgers also pack a mighty flavour punch.
