Its been a while since my last visit here, but I was in the area and today I visited and wanted to try something different…..to be honest I felt like pancakes and bacon but that didn’t work out….

On entering I sat down and was given the menu, I didn’t see pancakes and bacon so time to choose something else…

The Food…

I decided to order a few things…

Starter

Buffalo Chicken Wings with Chipotle Sauce (Large) £8.95
Spicy buffalo wings with the choice of hot sauce, Jack Daniels glaze, chipotle BBQ sauces

IMG_0595.jpg

Wow this was a good sized portion, and it smelled amazing.

mmmm every chicken wing was very tender and full of flavour, with just a little kick at the end which was perfect for me.

My only issue was some cleaning cloths would have been good to have, but hey a quick lick of the fingers and kinda clean.

TriBeCa’s famous Snow Blizzards, 12 years and going strong. A thick ice cream shake with whipped cream and a few special ingredients that add the extra ahhh…factor

This was a random one for me but it sounded good.

Wow firstly this was a really nice taste and secondly it was thick, I was loving this and it could technically be a meal on its own as it was very filling.

Burger & Bun (Glasgow, Milngavie) : Review

I was at work when I got a ding in my email, and took a look and it was an invite to come along to Burger & Bun to see the place and try the food. I kindly accepted and then worked out how I would be getting there.

Normally as you know I frequent in Glasgow centre or the West End, but Milngavie (Bearsden)? this is a place I have never been to unless passing through.

Burger & Bun is basically opposite the Hillfoot train station, so this was very easy to get to from Glasgow Central Station.

On the outside to the side of the restaurant, there is a nice little seating area for when its sunny.

On entering we were seated next to the window, which was nice as I could look out at the nice evening.

The Food…

I could see a few burgers I wanted to try, but I asked for a recommendation so thats what I went with.

Pulled Pork Burger £8.50 (Tonight £N/A)
Slow roast pork, BBQ Sauce, Appleslaw, Crispy Onions

IMG_8035

When this arrived it looked as good as it smelt, and I couldn’t wait to take a BIG bite.

This was a very good burger!!!! the flavours were perfect and very nice. The burger was perfectly cooked and had really nice flavour, and very tender.

Ive had a few burgers recently some bad and some good, this falls in the very good category!

Cheesy Fries £4.00 (Tonight £N/A)
Cheddar Sauce, Carmelised Onions, BBQ Sauce

IMG_8037

When this arrived my first thought was OH MY GOD!!! why? because it was a massive portion!!

Recently I had cheesy fries from another burger restaurant and NOT GOOD!! so I thought lets try the ones here.

Apart from being a massive portion……these were REALLY good!!! skinny fries, nice cheese and onions….perfect!!

Unfortunately I only ate half, as I was leaving room for the milkshake which originally I thought was a normal one but you will see when you continue to read.

Crazy Shake : Creme Egg £6.00 (Tonight £N/A)

IMG_8043

Another OMG moment tonight! When placing the order I was told it was more like a desert, but I thought maybe a thick heavy shake but I ordered it anyway.

Once it was on the table, I could see what was meant by the desert comment.

At this point I was feeling very full, but hey there is always room for chocolate 🙂

This was as good as it looks!!! next time I will order a normal milkshake but I am glad I got to try this!!

Also for £6 amazing value!!!

Overall

Firstly a big thanks to Burgers and Bun for tonights invite, and for the food and amazing service.

I am very glad that I got an invite to here tonight, as this is somewhere I wouldn’t have gone to visit. Now I have been I will aim to head back, as I would like to try more of the burgers and maybe another BIG shake or normal one.

Please do take a visit here, you won’t be disappointed.

** UPDATE : At the time of posting this, the Glasgow branch has just closed which is a BIG SHAME to as the food, milkshakes and staff were all really good. I loved the milkshakes, I really hope they re-open as there are a few burger places near and they are no way as good as here was!!!!

I have visited Byron Burgers a good few times now since it opened, and every time I have never been disappointed in any way.

More and more recently I have seen some Facebook Ads for a new Christmas Cheesy burger, and thought I like cheese, I like burgers so I need to visit and see what its like.

The Food :

Today I decided to try two dishes, these were small ones.

Cheesemas Feast £16.95 (Burger + Side + Drink)
6oz hamburger, Barber’s cheddar, Barber’s Red Leicester, Byron cheese, crispy Grana Padano, red onion, smoked tomato ketchup, Grana Padano aioli and a jug of Byron cheese sauce

IMG_4070

Lets start with the burger..

On arrival this looked good, and I liked how there was even more cheese in the little pot next to it.

I just went for it and poured the extra cheese on top, the smell and look was really good so I couldn’t wait to dig right in.

Firstly as soon as I picked this up I knew this was going to be one messy burger, but I didn’t care as it was very very good!!! and very messy.

The crisp Grana Padano was really nice and I could have had more of that.

Overall this was amazing and I hope they keep it on the menu, or if not have something similar to this as its really good and the cost is very good value for money.

Bacon Cheese Fries
Cheese fries topped with crispy bacon

So I opted to have even more cheese and went for the Cheese Fries.

What can you say about fries with cheese and bacon apart from these were good 🙂 mmmm

Chocolate Milkshake (plus baileys shot)

IMG_4068

I LOVE the chocolate milkshakes here so couldn’t wait to order the chocolate one again, but I decided to try the one with baileys shot to see what its like.

It was ok with the shot, the chocolate milkshake on its own is much better and I have to say is the best I have ever had!!!!

Overall :

My return visit to Byron was a good one and a very very very cheese packed and filling visit.

Go try this before they stop it and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
