Annie’s Burger Shack
5 Broadway, Nottingham, NG1 1PR
Annie’s Burger Shack has been serving customers since 2009, bringing a classic taste of New England to the centre of Nottingham and putting smiles on faces. What makes this eatery extra special is their meat-free selection. Every recipe on the menu can be adapted to make it vegan or vegetarian, incorporating mouth-watering, tried-and-tested alternatives that do not compromise on flavour. Whet your appetite with one of Annie’s special milkshakes or fruit slushies, or enjoy a pint of craft ale, lager or a glass of wine while you peruse the menu. The team prides itself on serving some of the best burgers in town, each of which is served on a toasted sesame bun with crisp iceberg lettuce, sliced tomato and mayonnaise, with your choice of fries or wedges. Perhaps the most classic choice is topped with bacon and melted American-style Cheddar cheese. If you prefer blue cheese, The Bacon Blues is the one for you. The Big Breakfast is as indulgent as it sounds: a classic beefburger topped with Scottish sausage, a thick slice of bacon, a free-range fried egg and grilled mushrooms. For vegan or veggie diners, all of these tasty ingredients will be replaced with equally delicious meatfree substitutes. Other variations include Mexican, German and Greek-inspired burgers. The menu is extensive and goes above and beyond your usual favourites. If you’re craving something different, Annie’s homemade chilli, nachos and hotdogs are great light bites in their own right, but also provide the perfect accompaniment to your American feast. A separate children’s menu makes a visit to Annie’s Burger Shack an enjoyable dining experience for all the family. If you’re visiting for breakfast, Annie’s has a range of delicious options to set you up for the day. Divided by region, the options include grilled ham and eggs from the Pacific Northwest, blueberry pancakes and Atlantic crabcake Benedict from New England, and breakfast burritos and huevos rancheros from the American Southwest. It’s an impressive and varied menu with something for everyone; breakfast is, after all, the most important meal of the day. For a Rhode Island-inspired bar experience, head downstairs to The Ocean State Tavern. Open from 5pm every Monday to Friday and from midday on weekends, this is the perfect place to catch up with friends.
