A little bit cold inside as the door was wide open throughout our visit, apart from that everything was fantastic!

Really good food, pleasant staff. £7.60 for two bowls of chips was a bit pricey, I think the chips should be around £2 a bowl, £17 - £18 for a burger is pushing it a bit to be honest.

The vegan burger patty itself was very tasty. The burger as a whole was underwhelming and somewhat to be desired, especially considering the price tag. Chips were great and a decent portion size. It was nice but I wouldn't eat here again.

I had the Pablo – £12
30 day aged beef blend, milk bun, chilli jam, pink pickled onions, American cheese, double bacon, peanut butter with an extra beef patty for £2.50 and the Bronx Fries – £5.95
House cheese sauce, crispy bacon, parmesan, crispy onions, chives. I can honestly say it's the best burger I've ever had.

It was a nice experience but very expensive and the putties in the burgers were very thin so even though I got a double putty i was hungry afterwards.
We paid 45 pounds for 2 burgers 2 chips and 1 drinks.

Burgers were absolutely unreal, quite possibly the best in Bristol and that is amongst some extremely stiff competition. Sides were also amazing and very friendly staff

Just great! I had the Fumo and partner had the Triad - so different but delicious.
Beers were nice and slaw was fresh.
Only area to improve - gravy could have been a tad thicker but that's personal preference I guess.
Staff were friendly and it wasn't crowded.
Definitely will go back!

Burgers were great, slaw was good and the bronx fries portion was enough to share between two! Service was good and timely.

Restaurant needs more space.

Would definitely come back.

Hello,

I came for dinner with a friend to Bronx burger. We had margaritas which were lovely and I had a veggie burger which was really lovely and couldn’t fault it. The sides were great we had Mac and cheese and fries. My only comment about the food would be that the Mac and cheese sauce had a slightly strange texture, I think it was raw, finely chopped onion, but I’m not sure but they they weren’t hugely pleasant.

I was a little confused about the ambience, when I booked the table and looking in from the outside I was expecting a slightly more elegant experience as the decor is modern and neat. When inside the restaurant it lacks a little bit of character and atmosphere. It’s a mix between a diner/fast food restaurant and a “normal” restaurant. Personally, I was hoping for a slightly less cold/casual affair and I think this could have been improved by some mood lighting and I don’t remember the music. There was also quite a strong smokey/greasy/foody smell throughout the meal which was slightly off putting.

In terms of service it was fine, the staff were friendly and it was efficient and helpful. Again, there could be a couple of easy changes that would improve people’s experience. If the waiting staff offered to take patrons jackets/coats or showed them where the hooks are to hang their coats up. At the end of the meal, if there is one, it would be nice to be offered the dessert menu. If there isn’t a dessert menu (which we didn’t find out as we weren’t offered) maybe it would be nice to have one.

Could this be the new best burger in Bristol?! Amazing. Triad and Pablo are insane as are all the sides. Gravy is a must!
