Budget burger joint with real burgers at reasonable prices.
The bold red livery on Giffnock’s main drag with schoolkids going in and out at lunchtime signals the presence of a fast-food chain, but this one is different. First, it’s tiny, only two other branches in Glasgow, one in Edinburgh. And second the food, while fast, is all made daily on the premises from fresh ingredients. Burgers are cooked to order, served with pink onion, lettuce and the signature sauce in a glossy brioche bun, all wrapped in foil. Sides come in either a carton or a tray with a plastic forks for messier options such as poutine or chilli cheese fries. The classic burger is an extremely reasonable £4, but splash out an extra pound or two and bite into the Highland Coo, which adds a slab of haggis and a wedge of gooey melted cheese, or the Blue and Bacon – crisp salty bacon and rich, gooey blue cheeses cut with the tang of pickle and mustard dressing. Innovation comes in the shape of the ‘hawder’, a specially designed cardboard burger grip that keeps the diner’s hands from getting covered in sauce and juice while preventing the burger from slipping apart.
