“Irreverent pop-art-meets-punk surrounds” are the hallmark of this cult chain, home of the ‘Dead Hippie’ burger, washed down with ‘Grog’ (“powerful rum cocktails”), showcased by a new West End flagship just off Oxford Circus. “I thought I might be bored with yet another dirty burger-style place, but these are so good” for “when you need a ‘filthy’ treat” that’s “tasty as hell” (and, moreover, “much better than GBK, Byron and so on”).

“The chilli cheeseburger and Dead Hippie are burger masterpieces”, proclaim fans of this grungy, in-yer-face chain – still the go-to place for a superlative “filthy” burger (“don’t go in your best jeans unless you want a dry cleaning bill afterwards”). The “delicious alcoholic milkshakes and fried onions the size of frisbees” also go down well. A new Battersea branch is opening in autumn 2018.

If and when you have “beer, bondage and burgers fantasies”, these “outlandish” grunge-fests are unparalleled with their “wild (and LOUD) interiors” and “street food with attitude”“legendary dirty burgers” (“the Dead Hippie is a Big Mac on steroids”)… wings… chili cheese fries.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
