Burgers & Beers Grillhouse
Proudly sitting on the Royal Mile, Burgers & Beers Grillhouse is the trendy gem in the area’s crown. This gourmet burger joint has raised the bar on what to expect when it comes to both burgers and customer service. Having seen Burgers & Beers on social media, we were excited to pay them a visit. We would suggest booking in advance, especially on the weekends, because it gets very busy. We had high expectations on arrival and were greeted by a cheery bartender who helped us choose from the extensive range of drinks, including speciality ciders, imported beers and a classic cocktail menu that includes all of your fruity, zingy, fresh favourites.
We were then directed towards our table in the main restaurant. After a short time browsing the menu and struggling to decide, our helpful waiter offered his personal recommendations. I opted for the Johnny Cash Burger: an 8oz beef patty topped with creamy goat’s cheese, caramelised red onions and crunchy cos lettuce, served in a herby focaccia bun – perfection. The homemade vegetarian burger from the build-your-own burger menu, which was topped with a large mac and cheese fritter, was my wife’s choice, and she devoured it with gusto. We concluded with a heavenly Freak Shake milkshake with Nutella ice cream, salted pretzels, cream and chocolate sauce – it was the epitome of indulgence. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Burgers & Beers Grillhouse; I’m pleased to say it was worthy of the hype.
