“Good-quality, well-cooked and inventive burgers – and some genius specials” (remember the ‘Spam Allardyce’?) draw a steady stream of salivating carnivores to this Northern Quarter joint, “although the trademark barrage of social media seems to have calmed down this year, as has the constant invention/reinvention of new burgers”. “The steaks are also some of the best around, and they make a decent bearnaise”, as well as four different meat-free burgers. Outposts in Prestwich and Preston have closed down, but there’s still one in Didsbury.

“Burger heaven” for hungry hipsters is hailed by fans of this ongoing Northern Quarter smash-hit (with spin-offs in Didsbury and Prestwich; Preston is no more), where the “massive Big Manc” and other “gorgeous burgers” are just part of an extensive and “interesting menu of meaty delights” – in fact one or two reporters feel the burgers are bettered by the other options. That’s a minor quibble though – on practically all accounts this “upbeat” and “creatively decorated” venue is “the best burger joint around”. Top Men Tip: “the secret here are the steaks, which are both very good, and good value”.

“Hefty burgers (some overblown, but mostly the combinations work) and even heftier social media” has won fame for this hipster Northern Quarter hang-out (which now also has spin-offs in Didsbury, Prestwich and Preston). “Great home brews” and “very good cocktails” complete the experience.

“If you’re not bearded you might feel out of place” at this “achingly hip” Northern Quarter hang-out: “one of the most innovative outposts of the north west’s ‘dirty food’ movement”. “There’s no doubt their burgers are amongst the best”, even if “some items are over-complicated and trying a bit hard to be too exciting”. Also in Didsbury, Prestwich and most recently Preston.
