When those hunger pangs come calling, and you require something that is generous, hearty and familiar, the good ol’ burger is the only dish that comes to mind. Versatile in their ways, burgers are no short of our go-to meal –– the right balance of meat (or veggies), sauce and bread is a combination we simply can not resist.
With the universal love for burgers, we would like to give the residents of Bengaluru a little guide to find the best one –– we have scoured popular opinions and put together a list of where we think you can definitely satiate your burger cravings.
Without further ado, here’s our little tour of Bengaluru –– burger edition.
I. Basco and Fry
Where: Defence Colony, Indiranagar
When: 11:30 AM - 11:30 PM
We will be surprised if one look at Basco and Fry’s food does not make you want to click ‘order’ right away, or even drive out to Indiranagar to pick some up. Inspired by New American comfort food, the burgers here are filling, packed with flavour and also available in some enticing preparations.
With burgers like Chicken Katsu, Barbeque Jackfruit and Philly Cheesesteak, there’s hardly any room for distaste for any of them. In addition to mighty burgers, the restaurant also excels at DIY tacos and chicken wings.
Basco and Fry is available only for takeout and delivery.
II. Boss Burgers
Where: Lavelle Road, Ashok Nagar and 80 Feet Road, HAL 3rd Stage, Indiranagar
When: 11 AM - Midnight
Marrying Indian flavours with the classic American dish, Boss Burgers is doing a top job of appealing to the masses. That is not all, they also have some classics up their sleeves. The irresistible punchy flavours make for a hard time while making a final selection.
With Mutton Ghee Roast Burger, Crunchy Quinoa & Veggie Burger, Holy Guacamole! Black Bean Burger and more, Boss Burgers should definitely be on your must-try list.
You can also visit their website.
Where: MSR College Road, New BEL Road and opposite NIFT, HSR Layout
When: 8 AM - 1 AM
Burgermeister is great at whipping up burgers that will satisfy and fill you at once. With their generous portion, and an option to go even higher with their XL options, we definitely have a sweet spot for the restaurant. Stacked, packed and flavoursome –– what more could we ask for?
Ultimate Butter Chicken, Shredded Moo Explosion and OMB’s Sloppy Joe’s Special would be our recommendations, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the others turn out to be your favourite.
IV. Burger Signeur
Where: HAL 3rd Stage, Indiranagar
When: 11 AM - 1 AM
A burger go-to for many, Burger Signeur quickly gained popularity thanks to its array of rather filling burgers. They do have some great vegetarian options, but the restaurant’s non-vegetarian spread takes the cake. With burgers that will make you want to get your hands dirty, Burger Signeur is the perfect guilty pleasure.
Lucien, South Carolina and Paris Delice seem to be our top options, although we must say, the rest are pretty tempting, too.
Find them on Zomato here.
V. The Only Place
Where: Near the Post Office, Museum Road
When: Noon - 4 PM, then 7 PM - 11 PM
Old-timers of Bengaluru will know that the specialty of this restaurant lies in its heart and soul –– their burgers, however, are a close second. With their homely setting and kind team, it becomes difficult to simply come in here for a meal –– in essence, you come in here for an old-school Bangalore experience.
Their Juicy Lucy, All American Beef Burger and The Mini Whopper always stand out to us.
Find them on Zomato here.
Where: 5th Main, Kalyan Nagar; RMV 2nd Stage, New BEL Road; 100 feet Road, Indiranagar; 22, St. Marks Road; Vasavi Complex, St. Marks Road; and 4th B Cross, Koramangala 5th Block
When: 11 AM - 11 PM
Over the last 13 years, Truffle’s has become more-or-less a household name for the residents of Bengaluru –– when in doubt, we turn to Truffle’s.
Their classic burgers, apart from a sense of familiarity, provide us with a chance at a whole, hearty and delicious meal. Not too heavy on the pocket, the restaurant’s seemingly never-ending list of burgers gives you a plethora of options. However, it delivers taste and quality on each one of them, in a rather above-average sized burger.
Wedge Mex, Sloppy Joe and the Truffles Rooster are our go-to burgers.
Find Truffle’s on their website.
