Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Best burgers in the world hands down! I used to be a 5 guys fan until I was introduced to higgsys, I will not be going back to 5 guys that’s for sure. These burgers do everything and more for your tastebuds and will definitely...fill you up. Not only are they the best, the couple that run it are top notch that will always chat with you while you wait! I hope higgys expands rapidly and maybe gets a restaurant or whatever they choose soon.More

This little place is outstanding the owners are amazing, friendly, and great to chat to. Now onto the food ! If you love a burger this is by far the best place to go I live across the other side of town and I will...travel over there for the food, their range of fantastic burgers, loaded fries and boxes are by far the best anywhere in peterborough. Proper smashed beef and proper chicken fillet none of this processed rubbish loaded with real cheese and sauce. These guys will accommodate anything you want. Located on A15 just up from Norman Cross in a layby. Freshly cooked to order be prepared to wait at lunch time as it does get very busy but it is so worth the wait. I have fussy kids and even they love it.More

Always yummy 😋 I had the a ‘Baby’ Rooster 🐔 🍔 1 chicken piece - Rooster normally comes with 2 bits of chicken, but as I was on my own I wanted something smaller ( normally end up sharing as portions are huge !! )...was just what I needed hungry 🤤 Juicy chicken, crispy coating & bacon 🥓 Melted cheese and ooosing with sauces !! Utterly delicious!!More

Travelling back to Bristol and stumbled across this burger hut and decided to give it a whirl as the queue outside was around 20 deep! If you're craving delicious food served with a side of humility, look no further than this delightful burger hut. I...had the Redneck with fries. Juicy and well caramelised burger. Blue cheese sauce went really well. Hot sauce on the fries were great. If I was local I would be attending every week!More

After months of following Higgsy’s on their Facebook page, we finally had the opportunity to have our first Higgsy's today. It did not disappoint! We all had something different, with items added or removed. Nothing was too much trouble and the owners are lovely too....Chatted away while our order was being prepared. The food was great quality and really tasty. My order was gluten free and totally delicious. 😋 I messaged them the day before to let them know I’d be over at lunch and they arranged for a gluten free bap to be available for my burger order when I arrived. Thanks guys! Can’t wait to visit again soon and try a few more bits on the menu.More

Have been a few times now and yes the food is good but just a little expensive. The issue isn’t the food it’s the owner. The woman that works there is absolutely lovely however! I’ve seen many other reviews mentioning arrogance also. I’m sure this...review will be classed as “someone who’s never been” or “fake” The arrogant attitude unfortunately puts people off and seriously why is there “merch” for a burger van? Very bizarre indeed…. I think if the owner humbled himself and actually took the criticism like an adult instead of making Facebook statuses like he does, it would look better on them all round.More

I have been wanting to try Higgsy’s for a long time now as I've been following their socials and the food always looks so good! Me and my partner decided to finally go try it as a bank holiday treat! We couldn’t decide between the...chicken burger or beef burger, so we got both! We also got the breakfast topped chips. I can honestly say it was all banging! Every bite of it was incredible. It’s one of those meals that the next day you’re left thinking I wish I could eat it all again! We will certainly be back to try more of the menu. My partner is also keen to do the food challenge.More

Can’t recommend enough! Lovely people and lovely food. Have seen lots of comments regarding hygiene recently but after checking it out for myself I can be sure to say that hygiene isn’t an issue! For such a small place, they’re doing a wonderful job at...keeping it all clean. Really rate these guys! 💯More

A real focus on quality from these guys. Decent beef, top notch frankfurters and awesome service. These are some of the best burgers in Cambridgeshire, if not the UK.

Just a brilliant local business. We went after seeing the outstanding reviews on here (ignoring the usual whingers that seem to blight every successful company!) And we were not disappointed. The food was hot, freshly cooked with care. So tasty and grease free! We loved...having a chat with the owners who were super friendly and accommodating of my strange sauce choices! 🤣 We don't live locally sadly, we were visiting friends and wanted a bite while we were up, but if we were we'd be there every week I think. Also, the chef was sweating while we were there too!! But working over a griddle what do you expect 🤣🤣🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️More
