Bobo Social

Amongst the slew of burger joints popping up left, right and centre, this Charlotte Street spot looks to do things a little differently. There's Champagne, for starters, as well as cocktails with a twist and small plates including prawn ceviche and a chicken and chorizo pâté with red onion compote and toast. Still not convinced? Try the 'experimental' events on Mondays and Saturdays - your chance to tuck into things like kangaroo, alligator and ostrich.

The burgers here are made with rare-breed beef from farms in Kent, Essex and Yorkshire, with Dexter, Longhorn and Red Lincoln cattle the chosen breeds. The patties are seared hot and fast on a Kopa charcoal oven, with cherry, English plum and hickory wood used to give things a little extra smoky flavour. 

There's variety to the burgers, too. A Bobo is pretty much your classic burger but there's one with peanut butter, a lobster and crab burger, a spicy 'capsicum' burger (a beef and chorizo patty with manchego, tomato and chilli salsa, fresh chillies, lettuce, tomatoes, charcoal-roasted red onions, Bobo sauce and jalapeno mayo) and even one with wagyu beef - coming in at a cool £20.

The venue looks great, lots of simple/clean whites and greys, not what I expected from a burger restaurant. The service was attentive and friendly but the real news here is that these guys have taken burgers to the next level.
The Bobo burger - this is the finest burger I have ever eaten. Great quality meat (Red Lincoln was the offering that day), cooked in an indoor charcoal oven with English plum wood. Wow. Branded 'B' buns, vintage mismatched plates - my expectations were all surpassed and the burger rule book rewritten. The guys next to me were eating debauchery burgers and looked like they were in heaven.
The small plates menu looked good but the burgers here are insane.

Great burgers! Great drinks! Great staff! Cannot reccommend this place enough!


Anywhere with peanut butter on a burger was already a winner in my eyes but what I wasn't expecting was a cute and cosy venue with an impressive cocktail menu. Some places are all about the sides, but the burgers were delish and weren't try hard. We struggled to choose which burger to go for so I suppose will just have to go back for more...

I am a big Burger fan! I can say that I found a really good burger place and next to my work! Burgers are tasty with fresh ingredients! I will recommend the "Debauchery" and the sweet potato with Truffles!!

With fairy lights, eclectic vintage plates and shabby chic decor, you can only hope the food (a selection of small plates and a menu of bombastic burgers), tastes as good as Bobo Social looks.

Myself and a party of 12 booked a table downstairs, where we had a dedicated bartender mixing tasty, inventive cocktails. I would recommend starting your meal with a selection of the small plates; the prawn ceviche was full of citrus tang while remaining soft and sweet, the pork ribs were mouth wateringly juicy and sticky, and the calamari was crisp and tender. Already, you are wholly satisfied with your decision to come to Bobo Social, but it is not until you taste the burgers that you promise to return.

The succulent, well seasoned burgers act as hosts for a variety of delicious toppings; try the Belissimo with fresh basil, mozzarella and sun dried tomatoes for a taste of Tuscany, or go nuts and opt for the peanut butter burger. It might sound like a hot mess, but the crunchy, gooey sweetness of the peanut butter compliments the perfectly cooked medium rare beef impeccably. And if you really want to go wild, try the crispy bacon with dark chilli chocolate dipping sauce as a side. You might not be able to tell if you like it or not until you have subconsciously demolished the plate.

In a city saturated with burger joints, Bobo Social manages to keep it classy with superb quality while adding a touch of fun and creativity. Most definitely worth a trip.

The venue's quite small but it feels very cosy and intimate - great for dates or catching up with friends. The burgers are gorgeous too - plump, juicy and generous.

Bobo Social offers a cosy atmosphere with fun-sized meals. Meaning small, succulent and scrumptious burgers. 

They do not compete in the burger arms-race for how many ingredients can fit between two buns. Bobo offer high quality products and unique ingredient combinations. Peanut butter, bacon and beef? Mushroom and truffle? All wedged between a pair of brioche buns? Yes you're right, that does sound rather excellent.

Definitely worth a visit. Oh, and feel free to try their cocktails too - they made me a mighty old-fashioned.


Eating at Bobo is like popping round to a good friend's for dinner, the dining room is small and intimate *adds to date spots list* with cute mismatched crockery. Go for the steak strips on the small plates menu to start, they're amazing! I went for a 'desperado' burger infused with chilli and lime and I felt like I'd died and gone to heaven. It was arguably the best burger I've ever had in London. The sweet potato and truffle salt chips are insane in the membrane and they even had 50% off some bottles of wines - the Bobo White is delicious and only £10 a bottle!! 

Absolutely fabulous Bobo, I will be back!

A burger joint that looks a little different - white and simple - calming and serene. We were sat downstairs, with mismatched chairs, fairy lights and decorative bar front creating a wonderful atmosphere. Waiter was good, menu fairly simple but very creative and executed to perfection. We had a Capsicum which was pretty hot and a burger with cheddar and blue cheese - both cheeses were stunning. Burgers were delicious and the dessert cocktails were amazing. Such a tasty combination of flavours I could have drunk them until they threw me out (or ran out of ingredients!) . Will certainly return, fab all round.

Peanut butter and maple smoked bacon on a juicy rare Hereford beef burger. Enough said.

Great burger restaurant.  If you love burgers, but want a non-traditional specialist burger joint, the atmosphere is great, and it's a real restaurant experience.  A great idea for a first or second date.
