Angus beef is dry aged for a minimum of 28 days before it makes its way to you on a plank in burger form at Angus & Ale. The jalapeno special was a monster stack of moreish brioche bun, lettuce, tomato and beef patty, topped with oozing melted cheese, with a sweet kick from the jalapenos, all sandwiched between two giant crispy onion rings. Officially declared Aberdeen's best burger by none other than my bearded hubby to be!
The Boozy Cow
The Boozy Cow's maple bacon option is a previous winner of Gordon's best burger title, defeated only by his recent experience at current leaders Angus and Ale! Here the burgers are served directly on silver trays, with lots of kitchen roll ready to mop up the mess. They're huge, juicy, and dirty just like a proper burger should be. I only wish the buns would stay in tact! My personal favourite is actually the chicken chipotle burger.
While the classic burger from Byron doesn't look like much, the chargrilled patty is full of flavour, and served on a substantial, good quality bun. Burgers are cooked medium, unless you request otherwise, so they're pink and juicy on the inside! It's a great burger but needs accompanied by a side dish or two - I recommend the sweet potato fries with blue cheese dip. And of course you can't visit Byron without tasting their infamous oreo shakes!
Where's your favourite burger joint in the Granite City?
There's certainly no shortage of decent burgers in Aberdeen and I'd happily make it my mission to sample them all! For research of course. I'm yet to find out if Ed's Easy Diner is worth a visit but I reckon Five Guys could be a contender when they raise the standard of fast food burgers in the city later this year. Do you agree with my top three or is there somewhere I'm missing?
