BGR

Two Americans missed the taste of home so much that they decided to open a burger joint. The original store was unusually located in the forecourt of a petrol station but has now moved to Rosebank's sexy new art hotspot, the Trumpet building on Keyes Art Mile (from Sept 2016).

Burgers come in just a few varieties - Cheeseburger (R59), Hamburger (R54) or the lettuce-wrapped "Cardio" version. For the very hungry, order the double patty.


The fare is American-style or what the owners playfully refer to as retro-engineered Shake Shack-style, inspired by the New York chain which started life as a Central Park food truck. They even imported the same grill. Ground beef patties using top meat with no basting, super fresh buns and basic toppings is the simple formula which make BGR's burgers such a hit. Service is fast and friendly and for under R100 you can add crispy french fries and a drink.

The 'frozen custard' (ice-cream/milkshake) has been getting rave reviews.
