Burgers

Located in a fully-restored protected structure in Galway’s trendy West End, BóTOWN serves a wide selection of craft burgers and beers across two floors in a really chilled, cosy and charming setting. BóTOWN is the home of craft burgers and beers but the restaurant has so much more to offer, including a very popular brunch menu and a wide selection of craft ciders, wines, hot drinks and milkshakes. Attention to detail is key and no stone was left unturned in the pursuit of the finest local produce available. BóTOWN’s 7oz beef patties are 100% Irish and sourced from one of Ireland’s most distinguished producers, award-winning Gilligan’s Farm. Their soft brioche buns are freshly baked every day in Coghlan’s Artisan Bakery in Naas, Co. Kildare. As well as beef, there are chicken and vegetarian/vegan burgers, a variety of side dishes such as chicken wings, charred corn on the cob and Mac n Cheese Bacon Balls. Gluten-free options are also available.

                                      Lovely burgers, proper chips with skins on. Sweet potato fries and veggie burger were a hit too. A good selection of Craft beers and ciders.

                                      Food was really tasty. Good portions but we ate the lot (and I am fussy)! The staff were friendly and very helpful. It was quite busy but they sure we had everything and checked on us regularly.

                                      Myself and 2 friends ate here Monday night for the second time in the last 3 months. The food is excellent and drinks menu also, but on both occasions we have been cold. Other guests on Monday night were also cold, they seem very short of heating which isn’t good when people come in from the cold especially at this time of year.

                                      Food took a long time to arrive, watched people get served their food before us when ordering after us. The burgers when they arrived were half burned, we waited that long for our food we didn't want to say anything incase it took the same amount of time to get another.

                                      The burgers were lovely but the chips are heavily seasoned and over cooked. I ate mine but not good for kids. The restaurant was cold. Staff were very friendly.

                                      The burgers are awesome! Just the chocolate cookie chips Sunday that I didn’t think is as good as them, not because of the ice cream and all the stuff, but because of the flavour in general. The chips are class! Really really well made! Anyway, I recommend this place I’ll be back soon!

                                      Great food (best burger in Galway), great staff and very reasonable price point. To be fair, our table was likely the only noisey one there.

                                      The staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful here. The food was really good, the quality of meat in the burgers was fantastic. Really good deserts and shakes too!

                                      The Texas fries and burgers were to die for. Highly recommended.
