Visited after the lunchtime rush midweek. All burgers were really tasty - not a single bite left on the plates when we were finished!
The Handmade Burger Co is an American-style restaurant serving up a huge selection of delicious burgers. Located in the Meadowhall Shopping Centre on level two it is the perfect place to stop for a bite to eat in the middle of a shopping trip, or before or after a trip to the cinema.
Situated in one of the units within the shopping centre, Handmade Burger Co have really made their venue special by making it appear as if it is a full house nestled within the shopping centre. The two floor restaurant is decorated in classic monochrome with the Handmade branding proudly displayed. Diners at this restaurant benefit from an ‘al fresco’ dining area at the front of the restaurant that is perfect for those who enjoy to people watch. Inside, the monochrome theme continues with feature wallpaper and stencils on the walls. Polished wooden floors, simply set tables and a light wood bar finish the scene off perfectly. A small lounge area is also available with leather sofas for relaxing and enjoying a drink or two.
As you would expect, the Handmade Burger Co specialise in burgers. Their menu features 40 different kinds from beef to fish and vegetarian to lamb. Every burger is made from 100% prime Scotch beef and are made fresh daily. The chips are peeled in house and turned in to the delicious crispy, fluffy chips that you can order as a side and the sourdough buns are made at a fourth-generation family bakery that owner Chris visited to help devise the special recipe for.
You can choose from classic beef burgers to more exotic creations such as the Hot Habanero; 100% prime beef topped with hot habanero sauce and mayo, Moroccan Lamb made with fresh lamb, Moroccan relish, mayo and salad, and the childhood favourite the Fish Finger Classic with fish fingers, mayo, relish and salad. As well as this there are salads and chicken skewers available alongside smaller burgers if you only want something light and a special kids’ menu that is still packed with all the handmade goodness but in a miniature size.
The Handmade Burger Co is a truly special venue that turns a standard burger in to something truly exceptional. It is the perfect venue for a get-together, family gatherings and parties, in fact, any occasion.
