I’m a bit burger mad, so I like try just try a simple one first to see the quality and get a feel of the place. I ordered a Beef and Cheese, Medium and hand curt Agria fries. The burger came out slightly over done but was still quite juicy. They cook on a charcoal grill which I’m not a huge fan of for Beef burgers (chicken yes) , there are some places the seem to use charcoal to hide the cheap patties (Charcoal burger Meadowbank!) – but this place the charcoal flavour didn’t over power anything which was good. The cheese perfectly melted and the burger is very full but easy to handle. The buns look a bit pale but are nice and light. All the mayo and relishes are made on site which is great but in the Beef and Cheese burger it was hard to notice them. I sat there thinking that while this was good, I should have ordered one of their more exciting burgers where they probably shine a bit more – But I will do that next time. These guys clearly know what they are doing and I am keen to get into the rest of the menu. If you are on the Shore, this is well worth a visit, it is way ahead of the dry burgers you get at BF etc.
The Agria Fries are excellent also.
One negative is the very limited opening hours.
