Slap and Pickle, The Whole Nine Yards

From all-American cheeseburgers to epic veggie burgers, you can have it all at home.

Filled to bursting, packed with juicy patties and loaded with all manner of weird and wonderful toppings, these burgers are well worth going out for. But if you can’t or don’t want to leave the house, what you really need to know is, do they hold their own when they’re the delivered to your door – and the answer is a resounding yes. So get ‘em ordered and get stuck in.

The BBQ Boi from Punk

It may be 100% vegan, but this loaded burger is every bit as juicy and delicious as the real thing. Their plant-based beef burger is smothered in cheeze, loaded with creamy slaw and topped with crispy meat-free bacon. It’s stuffed inside their signature charcoal brioche bun, with a mammoth onion ring and a good old squeeze of BBQ sauce.

The Extra Yard from Slap & Pickle

Burgers don’t get bigger or badder than this. The Extra Yard is an absolute beast. Three 3.5oz 40-day dry-aged burgers make the base, but that’s just the beginning. They load on American cheese and smoked bacon, heap on onion rings and pickles, top it all with jalapeños and roquito chillies, then douse it in a duo of tongue-tingling sauces.

The Hot Chicken Burger from Growlers

Beef isn’t the only burger on the menu, in fact, this finger-lickin’ chicken will give even the meatiest hamburger a run for its money. It starts with a duo of marinated buttermilk fried chicken fillets, crisp on the outside and oh-so-juicy on the inside. Add coleslaw, gherkins and jalapeños, load on mayo and hot sauce, then wrap it all up in a brioche.

The Chilli Cheeseburger from Bad Boy Burgers

If you like your burgers down and dirty, you need a bit of Bad Boy in your life, more specifically, you need The Chilli Cheese Burger. Their homemade patty comes smothered in beef chilli, which means it’s just as sloppy and delicious as you dreamed it’d be. Bacon, Monterey Jack cheese and fried onion sprinkles act as the cherry on the top of a near-perfect burger.

The Vada Pav at Bundobust

The Vada Pav is the jewel in Bundo’s crown. This is like no other burger you’ve had before, largely because it’s a spicy potato burger. You’ll wrap your lips around a deep-fried ball of mashed potato, seasoned in all manner of spices. Sandwiched between a golden brioche bun and smothered in homemade red and green chutneys, it’s a game-changer.
