I bumped into this small establishment just off Market St. Their signage touted their burger and after many travels to Europe, I thought I'd continue my quest to find a truly great hamburger "across the pond". I ordered mine exactly like I like it. No cheese, medium well, tomato, lettuce, onion, mustard. No weird additions, no weird sauces. At a cost of 3 quid and change, I did not expect greatness. But what I got was hamburger perfection. The bun was fresh and hot and lightly toasted (a bonus), the meat was hand formed from locally sourced beef - thick and juicy and had a wonderful grilled flavor. Importantly, the veggies were very fresh, and the mustard just right. I felt as though I was given a custom burger that someone cared about.
The burger was not huge, and would be even more perfect with the large wedged fries (chips) I noticed, but I was going for lite and the burger was perfect for a guilt free lunch. I'm in St. Andrews for four more days and plan to go back. I might even try the hot dog which is touted as being a house blend of beef and sausage (as I recall the ingredients). A great hot dog is hard to find, but I'm guessing this may be the place. Especially if you take the trouble to figure out how you like it and order it that way.
By the way, the people at the counter were very careful to get my order just right. So decide exactly how you want your order and this little shop will give you what you want and then some, based on my experience. All with a very pleasant attitude, to boot. Atmosphere and cleanliness was nice and tidy. Not fussy, but just what you'd want for a quick bite.
I also noticed a nice variety of shakes, etc. so I may skip breakfast and go back one afternoon for the whole thing. Burger, shake, fries. I'm betting I won't be disappointed. I feel as though someone might think I was the owner's mom or something. But I'm not. I'm just a guy from Texas who knows a good burger when he finds it.
