Handmade Burger Co. review


On our first evening on our little jaunt up to Birmingham, we stumbled across the Handmade Burger Co. which you’ll find with most of the other restaurants in the Bullring. The restaurant was busy, with the main seating area on the ground floor and the bar, waiting area and outdoor seating on the higher level. The place was pretty busy and the atmosphere was buzzing but friendly. It certainly felt like a ‘trendy’ place to be – the branding reflected this and the low lighting added to the evening atmosphere.

The menu was huge – definitely the place to go if you fancy a burger but want a lot of choice. Graham opted for the Jimmy’s Farm free-range beef, cheese and bacon burger which he said was the best meat in a burger he’d ever eaten – so definitely worth the extra money though you have a lot less choice for fillings. I went for the avocado and bacon toppings on my burger which was absolutely delicious – my new favourite combination. We paired these with sweet potato fries and fresh cut chips which were just like the chunky chips you get from a fish and chip shop and they were so tasty. The staff were helpful and attentive throughout our meal and the food was delicious – a great combination and with plenty of restaurants across the UK, no doubt we will be returning.

Have you ever eaten here, or is there another burger restaurant you'd recommend? Byron is next on my list!

  1. I liked it there but the burger was a tad over cooked for my liking. You will love Byron, make sure you try the courgette fries. I like Patty & Bun in London and if you're in Cardiff try Got Beef or Grazing Shed, both use local ingredients and are independent.
