There are some great burger joints to check out in London.

Nothing is quite as satisfying as finding the perfect burger. For many, burgers are the best comfort food. Burger joints have evolved to the point of any combination of toppings, meats, or even beyond meat burgers are possible to find locally. Chains like A&W, McDonald’s and Wendy’s are excluded from this list.

1. Top Gun burger

These six ounce bad boys make your mouth water the second you step foot into the shop. The variety in toppings and patties are sure to please everyone. There are vegetarian options available. The price range is a bit more on the higher end of burger prices. The most expensive burger on the menu is priced at $24. The “Destroyer” burger includes two beef patties, cheddar cheese, crusted Portobello mushroom, beef bacon, lettuce, tomato, pickles, guacamole, Pico de Gallo and chipotle aioli between, two grilled cheese sandwiches.

2. The Works

The Works is more of a sit down burger joint, but is totally worth the extra time. Hands down, it gives the largest servings out of anything else on this list. The restaurant now includes nine different patty options (each about half a pound) including; beef, beyond meat, elk, and chicken. As a side note, their bottomless fries are the best out of any other fries on this list.

The amount of topping options is ridiculous and the menu is comedy gold. One of the many options on the menu includes “Barking at My Cow” burger. The burger included smoke brisket, BBQ sauce, caramelized onions, jack cheese, and lastly bacon. However, be warned the price is on the higher end but keep in mind the portions are quite big.

3. South St. Burger

If you are more into a fast food burger South St. Burger is a place you need to try. Although the chain is not as “adventurous” with its toppings, it has one of the best tasting beef burgers in the city. The burger joint offers both four once or six once Canadian beef burgers. There are also vegan options available. The “True North” burger includes aged cheddar, bacon, South St. signature sauce, maple syrup, and onions. In terms of price, it is more in the mid-range.

4. Burger Burger

You have not been a college or university student in London if you have not stopped by this place at 1 a.m. on a Friday night. Located right beside the Barking Frog and other local nightclubs and bars, Burger Burger is a staple in many students nightlife. One of the best burgers in London without a doubt is they “say cheese” burger. The say cheeseburger includes a double cheeseburger but the buns are grilled cheese sandwiches. Prices vary greatly depending on the burger but most are under $12.
