Warrior Burger at TGI Fridays

It's time to get your battle gear on and tackle the towering Warrior Burger at TGI Fridays!

A Pizza in a Burger in a Pizza at Rub Smokehouse 

They've only gone and combined our two fave meals! This epic feast is made to share and consists of the equivalent of eight brisket & Jacob's ladder beef burgers surrounding a pepperoni pizza, grilled with more cheese in between two more pepperoni pizzas acting as burger buns and garnished with slaw, lettuce and Rub BBQ burger sauce and not forgetting the love or hate item - gherkins! Head over and tackle this mammoth meal for £29.95.

The Chicken & Waffle Burger at Annie's Burger Shack 

You can't come to the city centre without a stop at Annie's! Every single burger on the menu can be made veggie or vegan, including their latest addition the Chicken & Waffle Burger.

After something more tame? A cheeseburger and fries are only £9.95 12pm-4pm Monday to Friday. 

The Smoking Bacon at Revolution

Their best-selling burger comes with a hand made burger patty, covered in smoked cheddar, streaky bacon, crispy onions, chorizo ketchup and smokenaise.... and a handful of Wotsits!

Another menu marvel is their Bean Dreamin' veggie burger, which comes with a sweet potato and bean burger topped with Harissa Hummus, rocket and beetroot - perfect for those lazy summer afternoons dining al fresco.

The Taxi Driver at Gourmet Burger Kitchen

We'd love to tell you this is served by Robert De Niro but we'd be telling you a huge fib.
