Jo'Burger review Rate it

South of the canal, bang in the middle of student bedsit country, Jo'Burger has pulled off the impressive balancing act of looking cool but still managing to serve up a tasty, friendly and, above all, lively night out (and at a fraction of the price you'd pay in town). Long communal tables are surrounded by a hybrid decor of pop art murals, chintzy wallpaper and assorted retro lighting, while the menu (which arrives pasted into a 1970s annual - we got Scorcher and Whizzer & Chips) is devoted entirely to the burger in all its multifarious forms. It comes in a number of traditional styles, straight up or with any number of cheeses and relishes, or you can try Thai-flavoured or curried patties, with toppings as diverse as peanut chilli sauce and mango salsa. Like everywhere, there are one or two drawbacks to Jo'Burger - such as the nightly DJs who keep the kids at party pitch and the old fuddy-duddies moaning, or the fact that there is always a massive queue snaking up the street on a weekend evening. But these are not real complaints, and besides, if you fancy somewhere a bit quieter, you can always head up the way to Bóbó's.
