The last few years have seen a number of top quality burger joints explode onto the food scene here in Dublin. And so, I was 'burdened' with the task of developing a list of the top 5 places to go to get a decent burger in Dublin
Bunsen, Wexford Street
One of the best burger joints in Dublin, Bunsen keeps things short and sweet when it comes to its menu, which leaves more time to focus on getting the star of the show: the burger. Bunsen has developed one of the tastiest beef burgers in Dublin, dare I say, the best! If you're looking for a casual dinner that's reasonably priced, this is ideal. As with any popular food venue, expect to be waiting for a seat, however, you can reserve a table in advance and Bunsen conveniently text you when it is ready.
Five Guys, Dundrum
I couldn't wait to try out Five Guys as soon I read online that they would be opening their first franchise in the Republic of Ireland. Keeping it simple, you order your burger, then choose your own toppings. There is no limit to the amount of toppings you can choose, so if you are feeling brave, you can add everything but the kitchen sink for free. The burgers are amazing, however, the fries let them down. Having only been once, there is huge potential here so I will definitely try it again.
Rustic Stone, South Great George's St
The menu at Dylan McGraths restaurant is one of the nicest you will find in Dublin. On my last trip here, I decided to try the 'Glamburgers'. I tend to break the unwritten rules of burger eating from time to time by cutting my burger in half and eating it with a knife and fork but Rustic stone takes the hassle out of this by shrinking their burgers down to a smaller size for those who like to take smaller bites. The atmosphere in here is fantastic so if you are looking for a burger in a fine-dining environment, this is the place for you.
Move over Eddie Rockets, the real American-diner experience is in town. Dillingers serves up a mean burger and reminds me of a burger bar in New York, pumping tunes, serving plenty of cocktails and, most importantly, amazing food! The Dillinger burger is made up of smoked cheese, crispy paprika onions, secret sauce, and pickles. Prices here are reasonable considering the top-notch quality of the food.
Wowburger, Wellington Quay
The perfect marriage, a burger joint and a club joined together in food matrimony. Located in the beer garden of the popular venue, The Workmans Club, you can choose from a large selection of toppings such as smoked American-style bacon or sautéed jalapeños which are all free. Wow Burger has also introduced garlic-butter fries which are simply divine! Wash it all down with a deliciously thick and creamy milkshake. You won't have to travel far after this one to get to a bar, which is probably a good thing after such a feast.
