Critic's review

Ashraf Booley

Food
Take your pick from over twenty bold burgers, including a number of starters (perfect for sharing, or not!). Or opt for ribs, wings, tacos or dogs, should you prefer.

Cheesophiles can sink their teeth into the gloriously gooey vegetarian cheese bombs to kick off the meal. This decidedly rich, cheesy union of cheddar, feta and mozzarella, which come swathed in layers of crispy phyllo, are deep-fried until golden and served with a tangy mustard mayo. (Here the portions are on the generous side, so sharing is recommended if you want to leave room for the main event). If you’re lactose intolerant, try the corn dogs or comforting Mexican bean soup.

Moving on to the mash-up of all things umami: burgers. The unrighteously named Sweet Baby Cheeses will make the cheese-obsessed, er, melt. It’s a pure, juicy, perfectly cooked beef patty loaded up with a trio of cheeses: cheddar, Swiss and a spicy cheese sauce along with all the trimmings. To round it off is a golden homemade brioche bun with a generous portion of seasoned shoestring fries on the side.

The ‘Lust – Lucy’ burger (part of Jerry’s 7 deadly sins range), proves to be an underwhelming progression from the starter and the Sweet Baby Cheeses. Here, the patty is stuffed with cheddar cheese (a good thing), and topped with slaw and a sesame dressing. It unnecessarily includes fresh, thinly sliced apple. Though ambitious, this burger is poorly assembled (making it harder to eat) and lacks in flavour. Try one of the other phethora of options like the Envy, Monster or the pulled pork burger.

End off your meal with a decadent Lindt brownie, which is served warm with ice cream.

Drinks
An expansive drinks menu: from shakes and soda floats, beers and wines, to cocktails, teas and hot drinks. Whilst simple, the gingerbread shake is a tasty treat, but could have been better had it come with an actual gingerbread cookie.

Service
Fast and friendly.

Ambience
Booths and exposed brick walls set the scene in this laid-back, casual diner-style burger joint.

And…
There’s something for every kind of eater: whether you’re a carnivore or a vegetarian, a lover of beer, wine, cocktails or non-alcoholic beverages.

  • The Veg burger is yum, great part is they are willing to swap out any burger patty for a chickpea one. The waitress was awesome, she charged my phone so that i could order an uber.

  • Just thinking about the delicious burgers that are served at Jerry's Burger Bar in Observatory is making my mouth water. Their various options make choosing the perfect burger a very difficult one indeed - but never fear because whatever you choose will be amazing. And then, when you think you can't eat anymore, you'll be further tempted with their dessert menu. Great relaxed atmosphere and great burgers.
