14 hearty burgers you can have for your tea in Liverpool
We set our burger-loving Josh a challenge to pick out his top ten burgers on offer in Liverpool restaurants. He loves a challenge as much as he loves a top quality burger. Here’s the results.
Burgers are the fail safe of any menu. You know when you order a burger you’re getting a meaty or veggie patty, some salad, chips and maybe even an onion ring or two, standard. But as with most things in Liverpool, the vast array of burgers on offer has far surpassed any standard menu offering. We’re talking sauces, all the sauces, all cheese, bacon, double patties, brioche buns, buttermilk chicken, crispy bacon, basically you name it, we’re sticking it on a burger!
