Best burgers and fries in Bristol by far! Not the cheapest but you definitely get what you pay for in a great location and lovely restaurant not just a burger bar!

Burgers were great, slaw was good and the bronx fries portion was enough to share between two! Service was good and timely.

Restaurant needs more space.

Would definitely come back.

Hello,

I came for dinner with a friend to Bronx burger. We had margaritas which were lovely and I had a veggie burger which was really lovely and couldn’t fault it. The sides were great we had Mac and cheese and fries. My only comment about the food would be that the Mac and cheese sauce had a slightly strange texture, I think it was raw, finely chopped onion, but I’m not sure but they they weren’t hugely pleasant.

I was a little confused about the ambience, when I booked the table and looking in from the outside I was expecting a slightly more elegant experience as the decor is modern and neat. When inside the restaurant it lacks a little bit of character and atmosphere. It’s a mix between a diner/fast food restaurant and a “normal” restaurant. Personally, I was hoping for a slightly less cold/casual affair and I think this could have been improved by some mood lighting and I don’t remember the music. There was also quite a strong smokey/greasy/foody smell throughout the meal which was slightly off putting.

In terms of service it was fine, the staff were friendly and it was efficient and helpful. Again, there could be a couple of easy changes that would improve people’s experience. If the waiting staff offered to take patrons jackets/coats or showed them where the hooks are to hang their coats up. At the end of the meal, if there is one, it would be nice to be offered the dessert menu. If there isn’t a dessert menu (which we didn’t find out as we weren’t offered) maybe it would be nice to have one.

Could this be the new best burger in Bristol?! Amazing. Triad and Pablo are insane as are all the sides. Gravy is a must!

These burgers were great! The chips are delicious as well and a really good portion :) Service felt like they didn’t really want to be here and we weren’t offered sauces and had to wait quite a while to get someone’s eye contact to ask- maybe lack of customer service training?

Very different atmosphere to what was expected given how small the restaurant is. Disappointed they don’t serve milkshakes in the evening- not sure why given they must have all the ingredients still… needs to be communicated on website.
Go for a casual weekday treat rather than a weekend.

We had one of those evenings where everything went against us and ended up being 30 minutes late for our reservation. We called to let them know and they said to still come down and we can sit at the window bar.
They could've easily told us no but they were so nice about it and still accommodated us.

We had two Vegan burgers and they were insanely delicious. Like, omg, I felt like I inhaled it. It was so nice to find a restaurant that does an actual Vegan patty and not just smoosh a load of vegetables together that disintegrates as soon as you pick it up. This was like a proper dirty American burger.

We actually really liked sitting at the window bar, it meant we could sit side by side and watch the world go by.

We will return and we will be there on time!

The place is spotlessly clean, food was amazing. I ordered two sides with my pablo burger and I could eat all my meal. The burger was immense, sides beautiful. The only thing I disliked was how hot it was in there. Literally sweating as I ate my meal. Other than that it’s a great place to eat.

Bronx was absolutely perfect for what we wanted. A late booking and a last minute change of numbers didn’t faze them. Very accommodating and great food and service.
