Upmarket burgers at this Birmingham outpost of the hugely popular chain
Byron Hamburger is a big, bold burger joint that recently rocked up to Birmingham city centre following huge success in London. The vibe of the restaurant is industrial funky, with greens and pastel yellows, iron girders, copious exposed brickwork, old wallpaper and reclaimed tiles.
All this perfectly fits the younger crowd Byron attracts, as do the regular flash sales communicated to Gen Z via social media. These can be as generous as 25p for a burger, if you’re prepared to queue.
The menu seems designed for optimal instagramming. The hamburgers (from £6.95) come stuffed with fillings and dripping with cheese. The varieties they serve include Cheese, Smoky and Chilli. Drinks include heavily loaded freakshakes groaning with cream, marshmallows, Oreos - you name it. Sides range from olives and tortilla chips to buffalo chicken wings and nachos.
Alternatives to the beef patty include chicken burgers, marinated in buttermilk, herbs and spices. The Clucky Balboa comes with guacamole sriracha mayonnaise and pickled red onions There are also a couple of veggie options on the menu including the Bean Patty.
