What did you think?

It was quite hard to find, and down a side street next to Brasserie Blanc in Jericho. Inside though it’s got a good layout with a retro wood theme and the decor is really different. The staff were nice and there was a good feel about the place. You have to go and order your food at the bar though, which I didn’t like because you have to get up, and it is a bit tedious.

What did you have?

I had the ‘angry Texan burger’ which was a beef patty, with BBQ pulled pork, tomato, tobacco onions, coleslaw and smoky mayo and bacon. It was amazing. The bun had a perfect texture to it. The beef patty was nice and moist and the bacon was chewy with a bit of crisp to it. There was a decent amount of salad, which was nice. It cost £13 but lots of the burgers are half-price on Mondays.

Who did you go with?

I went with my friend Henry and he had the Notorious Pig pizza with salami, BBQ pulled pork, smoky bacon and chilli, which looked amazing and was perfectly cooked on the bottom and soft on the top. It did not have too much cheese so it tasted fantastic. His was £13 too but from Tuesday to Friday lots of the pizzas are half-price.

We also tried the £7 Preposterous Sundae – orange bourbon, vanilla and salted caramel ice cream, chocolate brownie, toffee popcorn, maple candied bacon and hot fudge sauce, which I didn’t like at all. The bacon was just wrong and there were too many flavours going on.

Would you take a girl on a date there?

Yes, because it is an interesting place with good food and the menu is restricted, so it’s not too complicated or fussy.

Marks out of ten?

Eight because the retro theme was pretty cool and the burger was scrumptious.
