I've been visiting the Burger Joint on Whiteladies Road almost every month since it opened here. The food is always excellent, an amazing choice and the service is brilliant from the friendly staff. It would be hard to select the best choices...venison, wild boar or kangaroo are all great burger choices. Even something as 'normal' as the green salad is... More

I recently came to the Burger Joint with a group of friends. I had been told to expect great things and I wasn't disappointed. I went for the beef which was moist and succulent. We had a mixture of meat eaters and vegetarians in our party, no one was disappointed and we all left completely full and satisfied. The starters... More

Not only was it full of tiny little flys all over the walls which we were constantly trying to keep off our food (not sure why it's full of flys in January?) But they also forgot our starter and on pointing this out they made no appologies about it, they just said that they'd take our missing starter off the... More

My son trains in Bristol most Saturdays so we try to combine it with a visit to TBJ. Never been disappointed. I am veggie and love trying out new combos of sauces and toppings. Relaxed atmosphere, great menu and friendly staff. Also love that they try to use local suppliers with fresh bread etc.

Came to the Burger Joint white ladies road for our work Christmas party. We were all looked after very well especially as the restaurant was super busy. Everyone really enjoyed the food and had a great time. I particularly love the flexibility to have as many toppings as you want in your burger. Great place for a party. Best burger... More

If all you make is burgers how can you possibly not get it right? Most over cooked, dry burger I've ever been served. Rude manager did not put it right either. Disappointed, don't waste your money. It's a shame as the cool menu means this place clearly has potential if they get a new chef and new manager.

The restaurant with funny name :D. If you want to order burgers, you will get the questionnaire with pencil and you have to check the burger and various side dishes. The burger was delicious and at good price. Service was quite good as well.

I went once on a whim so we could check out a new burger joint, and as this aptly named place suggests - it didn't let us down! The idea is to choose your own burger - toppings, (free) sauces and all - and then the burgers are made exactly how you've requested. The milkshakes are in abundance and the... More

Used to be the best burger in bristol! Really disappointed on my last visit on a Sunday evening. Over cooked butchered burger with a tiny bun that I had to send back! Next burger that came was just as bad, and no one asked if it was better. Place was empty but service was so slow. Worst burger experience I've... More

I am really sorry we did not live up to our high standards on this visit. We always pride ourselves on serving high quality burgers and delivering great service but obviously something slipped on Sunday and we didn't provide a great experience. I have spoken to the duty manager regarding the lack of communication about tables becoming available, he is... More

You get to choose your meat, bun, toppings, sauces and sides, by ticking boxes on your order slip. Don't get carried away as the portions are very generous. Super tasty.
