At the current minute Glasgow City Centre is the sort of arena for an all out gourmet burger death match. GlasgowLiving brings you: Burgers in Glasgow you must try before you die.

1. Lebowskis


The Dude of all burgers has to be Lebowskis. Go for The Big Lebowski if you’re brave enough, or try the Filet O’ Crab for something a bit different. For those who are Mac ‘n’ Cheese daft, try the Bacon Mac ‘n Cheese burger, a classic with a mac ‘n’ cheese fritter. Then wash it all down with… a White Russian of course – there’s a whole menu of them.

2. Bloc


They have one on the menu titled ‘The Durty Burger’… Enough said. Try it with the Street Trash Steak, french fries topped with sliced sirloin steak, caramelised onions and peppercorn sauce – wow…

3. Five Guys


If you think this is your average greasy burger chain, think again. With no freezers or microwaves on site, everything is fresh and made from scratch. And if you’re thirsty, there are 100+ choices of drinks to choose from.

4. Bread Meats Bread


These guys have become well known for some of the craziest concoctions in the city. Matcha brioche, ‘nduja infused patties and a glazed donut in place of a bun, it seems like no idea is too wild. Make sure you arrive hungry and order a side of their famous poutine.

5. Gourmet Burger Kitchen


Founded by Kiwis, this is one ‘sweet as’ burger joint. As if chicken, beef, lamb and buffalo weren’t enough meat choices, they also do a pork and chorizo burger called The Salvador. Wash it down with NZ classic drink L&P.

6. Porter & Rye


If it’s a midnight snack you’re after, Porter & Rye have a Late Menu until 1am. Go for the 10oz Aged Meat Burger, much better than a dodgy kebab.

7. Handmade Burger Co.


With a super extensive menu, this is the perfect place for fussy eaters, or a group. Whether it’s a Texas Chilli Cheese Extreme Burger, a Beef & Horseradish Sunday Roast Burger or a Greek Pitta Burger, everyone’s covered.

8. Ad Lib


Calling all Man V Food enthusiasts! Head to Ad Lib where you can attempt the Burger Challenge, with one hour to demolish a burger made of a 3lb meat patty and 1lb of cheese – if you succeed you get it free and win a t-shirt.

9. Broadcast


An unlikely contender, but a good one. Great place to line the stomach if you’re on a ‘Sauchiehall Sesh’ and does 2-4-1 burgers all week… result.

10. The Flying Duck


With a choice of 8 meat-free burgers on the all-vegan menu, this place is a burger loving veggy’s dream.

11. Buddy’s BBQ & Burgers


What started off a small, side-street takeaway joint has now turned into a restaurant and multiple takeaways. Go for the Duke Burger – double cheeseburger topped with pulled pork.
