There’s already a couple of places in Edinburgh we spotters like for their burgers (check the Holyrood 9A article). But, while the other spots offer great burgers in a pub setting, Burger offers a unique opportunity for good quality fast food in Edinburgh.
The menu’s pretty simple – a handful of burger or hot dog variations accompanied by shakes, beer or wine and followed with ice cream or sorbet – and focused on quality, local ingredients that are prepared to order.
For a long time, I stuck to the classic burger as I didn’t think it could get any better, but having recently branched out I’ve not been disappointed yet. The veggie burgers are amazing and the hot dogs spectacular! The fries, made daily from russet potatoes, are perfectly crunchy and not stringy as you often get in fast food places. My latest discovery is the boozy shakes – they’re a little bit too good!
There are actually two Burgers in Edinburgh so as well as this outlet you can also visit the one on Shandwick Place.
Whichever one you go to though you can’t go wrong with Burger.
