Chargrilled steaks and burgers cooked from scratch, with a host of toppings and other menu specialities that are well worth the wait
Burgers in this pretension-free, friendly Leith diner come piled high with pineapple and jalapeno salsa, fried onions, garlic butter, bacon, blue cheese and a bunch of other toppings - but they don’t come fast. The six or twelve ouncers here are the real deal, and take about twenty minutes to cook from scratch.
Chargrilled steaks and burgers are their speciality, but the specials menu also features seafood (mussels with smoked garlic, white wine and cream for example, or tandoori mackerel fillets), plus vegetarian falafel platters and savoury tarts with butternut squash, cashews and honey.
To finish, there’s ice cream on offer, plus simple but moreish desserts like vanilla cheesecake of sticky toffee pudding, and a daily cocktail special - although it’s hard to see past their espresso martini, a welcome buzzy, boozy pick-me-up after a meat and carb-fest. It’s worth phoning ahead to check opening times too, as they’re only open in the evenings during the week (slightly earlier on Fridays and Saturdays) but serve brunch from 10.30am on a Sunday.
Still deciding if it’s the burger place for you? Their website has a burger restaurant game you can play where you try and not mess up orders from hungry, fussy customers, against the clock. Much better than getting a plastic toy with your Happy Meal.
