Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018/19 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

Popular with young ’uns and students, this budget burger diner is great if you’re looking for a quick bite of proper, decent grub but don’t want to lower yourself to a conglomerate burger outlet. Even though it’s a chain (three in Glasgow, one in Edinburgh), the interior is funked up with industrial style lighting, raw brickwork and smoked wood. Just don’t go expecting a plate – BRGR burgers are served wrapped in tin foil, chips come in a cup and messier dishes like poutine are served in a plastic tray with wooden forks. Burgers from the classic menu are big, meaty monsters – the Highland Coo comes with an enormous chunk of haggis, caremelised onions, cheddar and pepper sauce. The deluxe double cheese and bacon burger is colossal, with the deliciously unhealthy taste of salty, crisp bacon combined with soft white bread. Halloumi sticks are salty and crunchy with a rosemary kick, and ooze hot melted cheese. Kitchen roll is served to your table with the ketchup, as if you were in a student flat, to mop up all the greasy burger mess.
