Beauty Between the Buns: The best Bristol burgers available on the BARBI AppPosted on: 23 Apr 2021
Treat yourself this weekend courtesy of one of Bristol's best-loved independent burger spots.
There are many, many things that Bristol just gets right. Forward-thinking arts and culture, a fiercely independent political spirit and a penchant for good food and drinks are embedded into the city's identity.
Of Bristol's vibrant foodie landscape, however, there appears to be one dish that reigns supreme: the humble burger.
Chefs have spent countless hours toiling over their burger menus, offering up tried-and-tested classics and some never-before-seen creations, all using the freshest, most delicious ingredients available.
The simple fact is that, when you're in the mood, you just can't beat a burger. Read on for a quick rundown of the very best burgers currently available on the BARBI App, and be sure to think locally and support independent Bristol with this weekend's takeaway order.
Smashed-patty specialists Danny's Burgers have made a real name for themselves in a short time in Bristol, offering up mouth-wateringly monstrous burgers from their HQ at local brewery Fierce & Noble.
Open every Friday and Saturday, the team serve a small-but-mighty menu of stacked combinations, from the simple Cheeseburger to the huge Big Mac Bootleg and vegan Beyond smashed patty burger.
Find Danny's Facebook page to browse their full offering, and find them every weekend on the BARBI App for collection or delivery.
Buckland should need no introduction among Bristol burger aficionados, known across the city for their renowned pop-up kitchens and, of course, their iconic Burger Bus.
Whether they're stationed at a street food stall or setting up shop outside a beloved Bristol venue in their impossible-to-miss American school bus, Buckland serve up an impressive selection of delicious burgers, accompanying them with a range of sauces and toppings prepared in-house.
If it's stacked burgers, fresh ingredients and serious flavours you're after, Buckland Burgers will be right up your street. Find them on the BARBI App this weekend, available for delivery or collection from their base at The Kings' Arms in Brislington.
Having just recently made an appearance on our rundown of the best vegan food available on the BARBI App, Seitan's Kitchen are rightly getting a nod here thanks to their tasty, messy and 100% plant-based burgers.
The BS5 spot specialise in sumptuous Southern-fried style cooking, serving up decadent burgers, freshly-made milkshakes and a range of American diner-inspired sides. Popcorn Chick'n, anyone?
Based out of the popular Small Bar in BS1, Wing's Diner serve up juicy buttermilk fried chicken burgers with an Asian-inspired twist.
Combining full-on flavour with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, Wings' brilliant burgers, explosive dirty fries and, of course, spicy chicken wings have become the stuff of legend across central Bristol and beyond in recent weeks - find them on the BARBI App this weekend and give them a go!
Bristol Vegan Pub
Another fixture on the BARBI App's growing selection of vegan venues, the Bristol Vegan Pub proudly serve 100% plant-based burgers in a variety of combinations.
From monstrous vegan burgers to stacked dirty fries, punchy mac n cheese, freshly-made desserts and, of course, an extensive selection of locally-brewed craft beer and cider, the BVP tick all the boxes when it comes to a proper, no-nonsense takeaway.
Cafe Kino has become a vital community hub over the years as well as a much-loved cafe, located in the heart of Stokes Croft and home to a homely selection of plant-based drinks, snacks and meals.
After a successful crowdfunding campaign launched at the beginning of the pandemic raised close to £14,000 to secure their future, Cafe Kino now exists as a not-for-profit organisation owned and run by its workers.
The team have spent much of the past year fine-tuning their delivery offering, and you can get your hands on delicious plant-based burgers, sides, sandwiches, sweet treats and much more, available for home delivery or collection on the BARBI App.
Offering commission rates of just 15% per order - down from as much as 35% from leading delivery apps - BARBI are looking to safeguard the future of Bristol's hospitality industry with the BARBI App, ensuring independents keep a much larger share of their income.
The BARBI team hope that their new app will loosen the grip that major corporations like Uber and Deliveroo currently have on the industry, with a view to expand to table booking, event ticket sales, discounts and local news features in the future.
As well as reducing fees for businesses, the app is also offering improved wages and rates for delivery riders and drivers at launch.
