We met in Brighton at university. We loved restaurants. We talked about them, worked in them, ate in them, and thought ‘we can do better than them’. So we pooled our savings and bought a marquee, a fryer and a grill. That's where it all began for Honest Burgers.
Brixton Market shaped Honest’s early days (we bought ‘chippy’s choice’ British potatoes and veg from the market stall opposite) and it still does. We’ve always been a best-of-British place.
We’ve given the classic American cheeseburger the steakhouse treatment. This brand new special is heavily inspired by one of the very best burgers we’ve ever had – the ‘Dirty Burg’ at The Loyalist in Chicago’s West Loop.
The star of the show is our homemade ‘A1’ steak sauce. It’s a tangy, fruity sauce that hits the sweet spot between ketchup and worcestershire. A dash of Maker’s Mark Kentucky bourbon at the end adds oaky vanilla complexity. It’s mighty stuff.
