“If you want dirty do Almost Famous, because it’ll be properly filthy”, say fans of the original branch of what is now a four-strong regional burger group. “Becoming a mini-chain may have taken the edge off the too-cool-for-school-ness, but its burgers remain a clear cut above the Byrons/GBKs of this world”.

The original branch of this four-strong NW burger chain continues to win credit for “top burgers served with the best attitude anywhere” – plus “amazing chicken waffle fries”, in a hipster vibe setting (all graffiti and exposed-brick).
