Burgers, Etc Restaurants in Islington
1. MEATLiquor Islington Burgers, etc restaurant in Islington 133b Upper St - N1
“Glorious burgers and great music in grungy surroundings” – this punk-inspired dirty burger operation “has many imitators now – but it’s still the best” for its diehard devotees. A decade after making the transition from a food van to a permanent site, the chain now has nine venues in the capital. If the excitement of its early years has dimmed a little, its food ratings continue to shine: “Dead Hippie burger, deep-fried mac’n’cheese, salted caramel brownie – is that not a perfect (heart-stopping) indulgent meal?”
2. Five Guys Islington Burgers, etc restaurant in Islington 71 Upper St - N1
2021 Review: “When all you want is an old-school burger”, these US-based arrivals of recent years really “hit the spot” – you can “build your own”, with “tons of accessories”; plus “seriously addictive fries”, “thick milkshakes”, and “more soda flavours than is reasonable”. “The eat-in experience is as depressing as McDonald’s”, though, in fact perhaps more so – “some branches have a strangely gloomy ambience” – but fans feel that “if you don’t mind 1980s-rock, a trip can still be surprisingly fun”.
3. Street Burger Burgers, etc restaurant in Islington 341 Upper Street - N1
Gordon Ramsay’s Byron might be a better name for Big Sweary’s new burger chain, which – in its first year of operation – has already taken three of Byron’s former branches into its own stable. Launched in the City at the One New Change development in December 2020, after trials at several pop-ups: it’s run along similar lines to his Street Pizza brand – all burgers cost £15, and include fries and unlimited soft drinks. (One New Change also houses GR’s decade-old Bread Street Kitchen, for which a national roll-out is planned). It didn’t take long before more branches came along, on the former Byron branch on Charing Cross Road; on High Street Kensington, in Islington and – biggest of all – an 175-seater in the O2.
