The description sounded mega good, so I had to order this!

On arrival, this is a big boy, so it was time to take a bite!…..well let’s just say my mouth wasn’t big enough so I had to resort to a knife and fork.

This was very good, full of flavours with every mouthful and just so good!

Smash Burger is kinda new to Glasgow, it has been open for a while now and finally I got round to checking it out and seeing what it was like.

On entering looking around it was very busy tonight, it reminded me of a mix between McDonald’slds and Ed’s Diner.

So we were shown to a table where we looked over the menu.

The prices were actually not that bad, and it had a lot of choices. Once decided on what we were having, you go up to the till and place your order. You are given a table buzzer, and once the food is ready a waiter brings it to your table.

The Food…

Starter

Stilton Stack £8.95 & French Fries £2.95
Chutney with rocket, haystack onions, applewood smoked bacon & stilton cheese on a Smash bun.

Smash Burger Glasgow : Chicken Burger

At the point of typing this, I have had a few burgers recently so I opted for a Chicken Burger tonight.

On arrival, the presentation was O.K, and it smelled nice.

The burger was very nice, the flavours for me were perfect. The Stilton cheese for me with everything else was just amazing. The chicken was very nice and tender, with that little crispness due to being deep fried.

The chips well they were nice and needed a little salt.

Overall

My first visit was a positive one, even though the food did take a little longer than expected to arrive but the waiter who was joking with us turned a negative into a positive.

The food yeah was very nice and good, and I will go back as I would like to try a few of the burgers and the shakes.

See you soon guys

I have been to Byron a few times, see my first visit here

The staff are always very helpful and very friendly, and I have always enjoyed the food.

It had been a while since I was last in and when I saw they had a few new items on the menu, I thought its time to go back and try them plus get a milkshake as they are the best in Glasgow….well thats what I think 🙂

Starter

Buffalo Chicken Wings

1hvnfyg6efi348dpmvcnpyg

I really wanted to try the new chicken nuggets, but was told today that they didn’t have any left. The last time I was in I ordered the wings, so I thought lets go for them again.

Just like last time these are really nice, and very very tasty. They are very messy and my only complaint is there is no finger bowl to clean your fingers with….then again licking them works just as well.

Cost : £4.50 / 7.50

Main

Clucky Balboa (fried chicken breast, guacamole, Sriracha mayonnaise, picked red onions and iceberg lettuce)

Another new edition that has been promoted by Byron via Twitter and Facebook, so I thought lets try it and see what I think.

I love the burgers here so I was looking forward to this, presentation wise it looks very good just like the burgers.

This was just OK, it did taste nice but for me the flavour was a little bland. I know there is another option which is the Buffalo sauce option, which now I regret not trying.

I think next time I would try with the Buffalo sauce, as for me it needed a little more flavour.

I opted to have the chips with bacon and cheese sauce as my side, this was very nice though I did notice the cheese they used tasted like the macaroni cheese rather than the normal cheese. For me this was nice, but I think using another cheese might have been better in flavour.

Chicken Burger Cost : £10.50 / Fries with bacon £4.75

Milkshake

I ordered this time round the Salted Caramel Milkshake, previously I tried the Chocolate and loved it so thought lets try something different.

This was just as nice and I would go for this again, it was very easy to drink whereas the chocolate is very thick but I don’t mind that.

Cost : £4.95

Overall :

Overall this visit was good, little disappointed with the new chicken burger but I think the other sauce version would have been much much better for me.

Staff as always and service both very good, and I will go back again.

Do check this place out and try the B-Rex mmm and a milkshake!!

Till next time
