Byron Burger

The South West is finally catching up with the South East.

We spotted the bright yellow parasols a mile off, you can’t really miss them. Then the familiar, matching, yellow writing across the window confirming our suspicions. Byron Burger had finally made it to the South West, nestled in the middle of Princesshay, Exeter.

The menu is small, but perfectly formed. Burger and chips that’s worlds away from the rubbish you buy at Burger King and McDonald’s. 

It didn’t take us long to choose;

The Smoky special for me and the Byron for him. 

Once we’d ordered, dark heavy clouds started to roll overhead, threatening us with their grumbles. We didn’t fancy our luck against them, so slipped inside the diner style interior. Completely open plan, we decided to venture into a slightly more secluded booth by the window. 

The burgers definitely didn’t disappoint! 

My ‘Smoky’. One perfectly smooth bap filled with lettuce, a beef patty, smoked bacon, pickles and oozing with smoked cheese then topped with their smoked Chilli BBQ sauce. 

The Gentleman’s ‘Byron’. 

Crispy red onion on melted cheese, on a thick beef patty, on lettuce, on a bap and smothered in their signature Byron sauce. 

We really needn’t have ordered anything to go with it, but we did and our Home Made Skin-On Chips were delicious!

That is the handsome face of one very content young man.
