The Best Burger Dates in Glasgow
A good burger, like a good date, should be hot, juicy, and smothered in cheese (if that’s your kind of thing).
So when it comes to dating in Glasgow on an empty stomach, there’s no shortage of burger joints ready to leave you and your date licking your lips. From the City Centre to the West End and the very trendy South Side, Glasgow is brimming with brilliant burgers.
Here are 5 of the very best…
421 Sauchiehall St, Glasgow G2 3LG
Home to the award-winning Meathammer Ltd, the burgers in Nice N’ Sleazy are served on delicious handmade brioche buns with triple cooked chips. Sleazys, as it’s affectionately known, is a Glasgow institution, home to a legendary live music venue, and a bar renowned for its White Russians. But it’s the Meathammer-run kitchen that’s fast gaining a reputation for slinging some of the best burgers in the city.
104 St Vincent Street, Glasgow, G2 5UB
In the city centre you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to purveyors of a good quality burger. Perhaps the best of the bunch can be found in Bread Meats Bread. As their website proudly proclaims, it’s a no frills and no gimmicks kind of place, and the Full House Burger (with American cheese, BBQ beef brisket, crispy fried onions, spicy beefy mayo and pickles) is certainly testament to that.
The sides are top notch too - Bacon Chips anyone? - and there are plenty of Halal and Gluten Free options if that’s a consideration.
57-61 St Vincent St, Glasgow G2 5SH
Fast food at its finest, Five Guys opened in Glasgow with a glowing reputation as masters of fresh, tasty burgers. With a focus on service, fresh ingredients, and cleanliness, this is the epitome of a no-frills establishment. The burgers aren’t fancy, but you can order them precisely how you want them. In fact, Five Guys claim there are over 250,000 ways you can order a burger in their restaurants!
This is the perfect pre-cinema burger date. Described as heaven in a brown paper bag, you’ll be served quickly and efficiently. Ideal when you’re trying to take your seat before the trailers start.
219 Fenwick Rd, Giffnock, Glasgow G46 6JD
When one of you is a vegetarian, sometimes it’s about compromise. So if it’s less meatier fare you’re after, over in the South Side of the city you’ll find a delicious veggie burger to die for at BRGR. A sumptuous falafel patty is complemented by crispy cos lettuce, chipotle mayo, cider onion, and roast red pepper. Yum!
117 Bath St, Glasgow G2 2SZ
If you’re looking for somewhere that doesn’t deal in half-measures, then look no further than Bath Street’s Bar Bloc (try saying that with a mouth full of burger!). The Street Trash Tower might not sound very appetising, but it’s positively mouth watering. Two 6oz beef patties, layered between three burger bun slices, double layered with crispy smoked bacon, melted Swiss cheese, pickles and coleslaw. Bloc suggest pairing that with a Schofferhoffer Hefe, and who are we to argue?
